Marc Elias, a top attorney for the Democratic Party who has spent decades defending voting rights, is calling on the Ethics Committee to investigate Senator Lindsey Graham.
The Georgia Secretary of State in a Monday interview with The Washington Post accused Graham of pressuring him to throw out what would be thousands of ballots from certain counties.
“This is both outrageous and should be investigated by the Senate Ethics Committee,” Elias said via Twitter, in response to Washington Post National political reporter Amy Gardner’s reporting.

Elias is not the only attorney calling for an investigation.
Here’s Kristen Clarke, the president and executive director of the National Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law:
Attn: AG Barr
Still searching for evidence of attempts to interfere with election? Appears that Senator Lindsey Graham should be investigated immediately. https://t.co/V1Q23G2NSY

So this seems like something that would come under the guidance Bill Barr recently gave DOJ to investigate 👀 https://t.co/QvKO3nUUIx

U.S. Congressman Eric Swalwell blasted Graham:
More evidence that Trump and his despicable enablers don’t give a single damn about democracy, and will tell any lie and break any law to try to silence American voters. https://t.co/ZFIRsJCqe8

Is there any consequence for trying to pressure government officials to commit crimes? Seems like Graham should get in trouble for this somehow. https://t.co/ZiRgkmTk8o

this is a Holy Shit! story. Graham is nothing but a stooge but so are other Republicans. https://t.co/wgEzms2hYf

None of these moves ever had a real chance. But big names effectively announcing they’d toss out votes en masse or even replace electors in a heartbeat if they could get away with it has much more serious long-term implications. https://t.co/XW88KhWEez

Lindsey Graham is now begging election officials to turn our country into a sham democracy resembling Russia’s. And he’s far from alone in the GOP https://t.co/zt6WKKgpZ2

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – America cannot function as a society as long as the Republican Party remains intact. The entire structure, from top to bottom, needs to be razed to the earth, the earth salted, and the salted earth ejected into the sun. https://t.co/uQd7p66xbN

Trump-loving congressman turns himself into a laughingstock with a few deranged tweets
The first thing you should know about Rep. Paul Gosar of Arizona is that he shouldn’t be confused with the famous movie villain from “Ghostbusters.”
One of them has been described as a “sadistic, shapeshifting, apocalyptic, cosmic entity.”
The other spelled his name differently and wasn’t a registered Republican.
Paul Gosar is no relation of Gozer the Gozerian. But he’s doing his best movie-villain schtick as part of a cottage industry of loyal subjects vying to carry on the manic mantle of Trumpism.
Trump turned to Giuliani after his top attorneys refused to get involved in his post-election legal battle: report
A new report from ABC News documents how President Donald Trump decided to put Rudy Giuliani in charge of his efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election after his own top lawyers told him he was unlikely to prevail.
According to ABC News' sources, White House Counsel Pat Cipollone, as well as longtime attorney Jay Sekulow, both gave Trump pessimistic assessments of his chances of prevailing in court with lawsuits to throw out hundreds of thousands of votes in Michigan and Pennsylvania.
Bootlicker’ Marco Rubio smacked down for attacking Biden’s cabinet picks as ‘caretakers of America’s decline’
'So much racism'
Acting Senate Intelligence Chairman Marco Rubio suggested he will vote against all of the cabinet picks President-elect Joe Biden announced on Monday. The Florida Republican, an expected 2024 presidential hopeful, appeared especially disturbed by the educational backgrounds, and some are saying the racial and ethnic backgrounds, of Biden's diverse and experienced team.
"Biden’s cabinet picks went to Ivy League schools,have strong resumes,attend all the right conferences & will be polite & orderly caretakers of America’s decline," Rubio tweeted (lack of proper spacing and punctuation are original to his tweet.) "I support American greatness And I have no interest in returning to the 'normal' that left us dependent on China"
