Politico’s Playbook has shared a striking revelation from an upcoming book, indicating another turn in Senator Lindsey Graham’s stance towards former President Trump during the Georgia election subversion case. The book, “Find Me the Votes: A Hard-Charging Georgia Prosecutor, a Rogue President, and the Plot to Steal an American Election” by Michael Isikoff and Daniel Klaidman, set to be released on January 30, uncovers Graham’s secret grand jury testimony.
After a prolonged legal struggle to avoid testifying, which escalated to the U.S. Supreme Court, Graham reportedly changed his approach drastically. According to sources familiar with his testimony, Graham not only discredited Trump’s belief in election fraud but also insinuated that Trump cheated at golf.
The book describes a notable encounter following Graham’s testimony, where he expressed relief and gratitude to Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis for the opportunity to share his account. The scene reportedly ended with an unexpected hug between Graham and Willis, leaving onlookers surprised at the unusual display of emotion from South Carolina’s senior senator.
This revelation provides a new perspective on Graham’s role and thoughts regarding the controversial investigation into election subversion in Georgia, highlighting the complex dynamics within the Republican Party surrounding the aftermath of the 2020 presidential election.
