The influential Republican Senator Lindsey Graham on Sunday encouraged the 45th US president to “fight” in court to assert his rights.

(AFP) – “We will work with Biden if he wins, but Trump has not lost,” he said on the channel Fox News, by refusing the announcement of the Democrat’s victory made the day before by the mainstream media on the basis of the almost complete results of the count. “There is a lot of shenanigans,” “a lot of things that deserve to be examined,” assured Lindsey Graham, echoing the accusations of “fraud” launched by Donald Trump, to whom he is close.

The elected official, who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, said he had proof of the vote of six people who died in Pennsylvania and mentioned “computer systems that have turned Republican votes into Democrats in Michigan.” “We can not let the media rule America, we must fight,” he said to his fellow Republicans who, for the most part, have observed total silence for 24 hours. “Do not concede anything, Mr. President, fight”, he again launched.

Other Republicans have been more measured, while also refusing to admit defeat at this point. Asked about the channel ABC, South Dakota Republican Governor Kristi Noem raised the same accusations as Mr. Graham. “I don’t know if it was widespread and I don’t know if it could change the outcome of the election,” she stressed. But, “if Joe Biden really wants to unify our country, he should wait to be sure that we had an honest election,” she added.

“Each legal vote must be counted, each recount must be completed and each legal action must be examined,” also assured the leader of the Republican minority in the House of Representatives Kevin McCarthy. “Only then can America decide who won” Maison Banche.
