Sen. Graham: Nevada's Signature-Confirming Machines Weren't Working

Lawsuits filed by President Donald Trump's campaign in Nevada are "very promising" because there is evidence that millions of ballots were run through the state's machines without the signatures being confirmed, Sen. Lindsey Graham said Thursday.

"In Nevada, they have a machine to verify mail-in ballot signatures," the South Carolina Republican said on Fox News' "Fox & Friends." "If you don't have a signature on a mail-in ballot, then it's useless. The machine was basically turned off."

That means that millions of ballots were run, with the machine accepting every signature, "whether it was fraudulent or not," said Graham. "They may win that lawsuit."

Without verified signatures, that would mean someone could vote "a thousand times" for Joe Biden, who has been projected as president-elect, said Graham.

"Signature verification in Nevada was meaningless because they set the computer up on a setting where it would approve anything," said Graham, adding that in Clark County, where Las Vegas is located, the computer was "basically turned off."

"I am convinced if you ran these signatures through with the machine set at the proper setting, thousands of ballots would be kicked out," said Graham. "If you don't have a system to check out the signatures, mail-in ballots become just, just ballot stuffing ... they had the machine cut off. [They] may as well have not had a machine."

Meanwhile, Graham also discounted reports that Trump will start pulling U.S. troops out in several locations, including Afghanistan. 

"I think he's been a good commander in chief," said Graham. "We killed the number two in al-Qaida about two weeks ago in Afghanistan. To trust the Taliban to police al-Qaida and ISIS would be insane. Our presence in South Korea is a buffer against China and keeps North Korea in check. Having a troop reduction in Afghanistan makes sense, pulling out makes no sense. Radical Islam is very present in Afghanistan, and our troops over there are an insurance policy against another 9/11."
