As President Trump conducts his ongoing legal battle over the 2020 election results, Senator Lindsey Graham, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem, and other Republicans in Congress have stepped up to support him.
On Sunday, Senator Lindsey Graham said that President Trump should absolutely not allow the election and that he must "fight back" against alleged election fraud.
Graham: "There are a lot of shenanigans going on here."
Senator Graham, recently re-elected to serve the people of South Carolina, spoke to Fox News' Maria Bartiromo on Sunday about the presidential election being contested and that, despite apparent pressure to do so, President Trump should not admit.
"The media doesn't decide who becomes president," said Graham, referring to the fact that the mainstream press has declared Biden the election winner.
“If you did that, you would never have a Republican president. So we're discounting them, ”said Graham.

Graham claimed there were a number of inconsistencies in the electoral process that indicate problems in the election.
“I want Pennsylvania to explain to the American people how six people can register and vote in Pennsylvania after they die. I want the computer systems in Michigan that are turning the votes from Republicans to Democrats to be looked at – and the software has been used across the country, "said Graham. "There's a lot going on here."

"If I were President Trump, I would take all of this to court, I would fight back," he concluded. "If we don't fight back in 2020, we'll never win as president again." Much is at stake here. "
The Trump campaign claims there were problems with the Pennsylvania elections even though definitive evidence has not yet been presented to the public.

Kristi Noem: "We should give President Trump his day in court"
Graham wasn't the only Republican to support President Trump.
South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem appeared on ABC and also argued that the elections were not over.
"We should give President Trump his day in court and let the process run," argued Noem.
“We live in a republic. We are a government that draws its power from the consent of the ruled, i.e. the people. They give their approval on election day. Election day has to be fair, honest and transparent and we have to be sure that we had an honest choice, ”she continued.
When asked by George Stephanopoulos whether there was evidence of widespread electoral fraud, Noem highlighted similar inconsistencies that Graham pointed out, including alleged deaths voting in Pennsylvania and alleged computer problems favoring Biden in Michigan.
Noem said she didn't know how widespread this all was, but that Trump should have his day in court.
“We gave Al Gore 37 days to go through the process before deciding who should be president. Why shouldn't we give the same consideration to the 70.6 million Americans who voted for President Trump? "
We, the people, choose our government with the consent of the governed. We need to make sure that our elections are fair, honest and transparent.

Stephanopolous continued to claim that there was no evidence of “widespread electoral fraud” across the segment.
39 House Republicans stand by the president's side
Thirty-nine members of the GOP House also stand strong with President Trump and sign a letter to Attorney General Bill Barr officially calling on the Justice Department to investigate allegations of electoral fraud.
"With widespread reports of anomalies, particularly in the counting of votes, it is time you used the department's resources to ensure the process is conducted in a manner that is fully in accordance with state and federal laws "says the letter.
“The US Marshal Service is also available to ensure court orders are carried out. In a federal election, it shouldn't matter whether these court orders come from a state or federal court, ”he continues.
Prominent signatories include Dan Crenshaw from Texas, Scott Perry from Pennsylvania, Andy Biggs from Arizona and Jeff Duncan from South Carolina.
Melania stands by her husband
Graham and Noem's comments follow a story published by CNN claiming that President Trump was asked to admit by people in the White House.
The story, which only provided anonymous sources, said that both Melania Trump and Jared Kushner had told him to let go of her.
However, this story seems to contradict the public comments made by the First Lady and others.
Melania said the American people "deserve fair elections" and that only every legal vote should be counted.
"We have to protect our democracy with complete transparency," she added.
The American people deserve fair elections. Every legal – not illegal – vote should be counted. We need to protect our democracy with complete transparency.

Based on statements from Trump's team, it looks like we are in the early stages of the litigation.
Nobody, not the mainstream media, the Biden team, the Trump team, or anyone else can say for sure how valid the claims of election fraud are or how it all turns out.
The courts either prove or refute the validity of the claims.
