Lindsey Graham, giving an interview on Fox News, addressed Donald Trump’s legal team. He said that they need to produce some evidence to show a court, rather than making videos with claims of fraud.
Trump’s legal team has already shown up in court — in court after court. The problem (for Trump) is that while they’ve shown up, they’ve failed to show sufficient evidence in any case. Instead, they’ve had one suit after another dismissed or thrown out for lack of evidence. That’s aside from the fact that the claims they make are riddled with errors, including mixing up states, naming plaintiffs that haven’t agreed to join a case, and misspelling (repeatedly) the names of their own witnesses and plaintiffs.
Graham addressed this, speaking as though he still believes that Trump’s legal team has evidence to bring, and calling on them to show it in court.

Rudy Giuliani, Jenna Ellis, and Sidney Powell have all repeatedly made public appearances in which they claim to have ample evidence of election fraud, and Donald Trump made the same claims again Wednesday in a Facebook video. Giuliani has even been devoting a YouTube channel to this, releasing new videos on a regular basis — including this one on November 20th titled LEGAL STRATEGY: Multiple Pathways To Victory in which Giuliani does not lay out any legal strategies or pathways to victory, this one last Wednesday called Where To Find The Evidence, which doesn’t point to any evidence, and this one perhaps an hour before Graham’s interview, focusing on states “take[ing] back the power to appoint electors.”
Trump has won no substantial legal battles over this election, and his team has produced none of the evidence they falsely claim exists. Graham may publicly call for the legal team to take the evidence to court instead of showing it in videos, but the fact is, they’ve been in court and on video frequently since the election was called for Biden — and they haven’t presented any evidence anywhere.
