GOP Senator Lindsey Graham FISTBUMPS VP-elect Kamala Harris in Senate despite backing Trump’s claims HE won election

LINDSEY Graham fistbumped VP-elect Kamala Harris on Tuesday despite publicly backing Donald Trump’s claims that he won the presidential election.

The Republican senator greeted the vice president-elect in a celebratory manner on the Senate floor despite Trump’s refusal to concede to President-Elect Joe Biden after winning the 2020 election.

Graham‘s fistbump was followed by a seemingly amiable pat on Harris’ back before walking away.

He was among a handful of GOP senators who complimented the 56-year-old Democrat on her and Biden’s victory.

Other Republicans who congratulated Harris were Senator Tim Scott, Mike Rounds, James Lankford, and Ben Sasse.

Harris’ warm welcoming took place as the Senate voted on Judy Shelton, the Federal Reserve Board of Governors nominee.

The California Senator voted against the controversial nominee Shelton – making the final vote 47-50.

CNN’s Senior Congressional Correspondent Manu Raju wrote to Twitter: “Asked about his fist bump to Kamala Harris, Sen. Lindsey Graham told me this: ‘Just saying hello – I haven’t a seen in her in a while.

‘If it works out and they make it, I told her I wish her well and try to work where we can.

‘We will know here in a month or so or less.'”

In the days after the election, Graham announced that he supported the Trump’s campaign lawsuits in battleground states.

He said: “They deserve a chance to make that case. I’m going to stand with President Trump.

“If you’re a Democrat and doing this, it would be cheered on!

“And we are not going to let the media intimidate us from exploring whether these contests were fairly had.”

The Senate vote comes one day after the Republican Secretary of State said that he felt pressured by Graham to toss out legal ballots in a bid to help President Trump.

Brad Raffensperger said on Monday that Graham asked him whether he had the power to reject certain absentee ballots, a question he interpreted as a suggestion to toss out legally cast votes.

Raffensperger made the comments to The Washington Post, saying he has faced rising pressure from fellow Republicans who want to see Biden’s narrow lead in the state reversed.

Meanwhile, President Trump has branded the election as “fraudulent” without substantial evidence and has claimed that Biden “stole” votes from him. 

The president continues to deny his loss to Biden after he won over 270 votes in the November 3 election.

Trump has insisted – without evidence – that “there is tremendous corruption and fraud going on” and demanded the vote counting stopped in states where Biden had a lead on Election Day.

The president raged in a recent statement: “This is no longer about any single election. This is about the integrity of our entire election process.

“We will pursue this process through every aspect of the law. I will never give up fighting for you and our nation.”

However, a former White House staffer has claimed President Trump will concede to Biden and attend his inauguration – despite those who are convinced he is going to install himself as some sort of “Dictator.”

And the president has fired the Director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency after the election official called the 2020 election the “most secure in history.”
