Donald Trump supporter Sen. Lindsey Graham (RS.C.) reportedly said the former president’s state of mind following his 2020 election loss to Joe Biden was such that he likely believed aliens were to blame for his defeat.
Graham, who testified during a special grand jury investigation into Trump’s attempts to reverse his defeat in Georgia, said “if someone had told Trump that aliens came down and stole Trump ballots, Trump would have believed it,” it said in new reports from The Constitution of the Atlanta Journal.
Trump has made several false claims about voter fraud.
But foreigners who influence voting have not been among them so far.
One of the special grand jurors recalled Graham’s comment on the 2024 GOP presidential nominee in an article published by the Journal-Constitution on Wednesday.
Five of the 23 members of the Fulton County grand jury were interviewed for the story. The quintet, who have not been identified, also revealed hearing another recorded call from Trump trying to pressure a lawmaker to reverse the election result.
In their final report, the jury said they believed “one or more witnesses” had committed perjury and recommended that charges be pursued through local prosecutors.
