During an appearance on Fox News on Monday night, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) called President-elect Joe Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) a “trifecta from hell” and a “nightmare for conservatism while claiming they would help end the Electoral College.
He appeared on the Sean Hannity show to predict the political ramifications if Democrats win the January special runoff election in Georgia.
“If we lose these two Senate seats in Georgia, Pelosi will run the house, Schumer will run the Senate and, if the president falls short and Biden gets to be president, you’re gonna have Pelosi, Schumer and Biden,” Graham told host Sean Hannity. “That’s the trifecta from hell for big government, it’s a nightmare for conservatism, it’s the end of checks and balances.”
Graham then claimed the trifecta would change the number of justices on the U.S. Supreme Court from nine to 13 and then eventually abolish the Electoral College.
“The winner of the presidency would go to the popular vote,” Graham said. “That means that South Carolina, Georgia and other states would be basically dealt out, and California and New York would pick the president in perpetuity. It would fundamentally change the country as we know it.”
Graham also voiced worries that mail-in voting in the state of Georgia could swing the runoff election’s outcome to favor Democrats.
“If you expand mail-in voting in Georgia and you allow a single person to validate the signature at an election office, and you don’t have bipartisan signature validation, that’s a formula for disaster for our two candidates in Georgia,” he said.
