Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) joined host Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday Night to react to Sen. Joe Manchin’s (D-WV) latest version of the SR-1 voting bill. This bill calls for a commission to redistrict states, ballot harvesting and no longer requires an ID to vote.

“Well, one, I like Joe Manchin a lot,” Graham said. “But we had the largest turnout in the history of the United States and states are in charge of voting in America. So I don’t like the idea of taking the power to redistrict away from state legislators.”

The South Carolina senator admitted this would not be in his party’s favor. “You’re having people move from blue states to red states. Under this proposal, you would have some kind of commission redraw the new districts, and I don’t like that. I want states where people are moving to have control over how to allocate new congressional seats.” Therefore, his party would remain a majority in those districts.

Wallace asked Graham if he could “go along with the Manchin stripped down version” of the bill anyway.

“So, as much as I like Joe Manchin, the answer would be no,” Graham responded. “In my view, SR. 1 is the biggest power grab in the history of the country. It’s just a bad idea and it’s a problem that most Republicans are not going to sign. They’re trying to fix a problem most Republicans have a different view of.”

Judge orders Biden’s DHS to release files on agents accused of censoring election ‘misinformation’

Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry made headway in countering federal agents involved in suppressing what liberal tech labeled “misinformation” on social media.

The Attorneys General moved to release testimony from five Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) employees after learning of their participation in the Biden administration’s counter-“disinformation” efforts. On Wednesday, a Louisiana judge ordered the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to release the files.

Court documents dated Jan. 19 show  the agents participated. The judge’s motion Wednesday could shed light on a “switchboarding” tactic employed during the 2020 election, according to the order.

The lawsuit alleges that the defendants, which include the named individuals as well as President Joe Biden and top officials from a variety of federal agencies, “colluded and/or coerced social media companies to suppress disfavored speakers, viewpoints, and content on social media platforms by labeling the content “dis-information,” “mis-information,” and “mal-formation.”

The Daily Caller reports that the five CISA employees allegedly served as a “switchboard” to route requests from federal agencies to censor disinformation to various social media companies, according to the documents.

Switchboard work employed “an audit official to identify something on social media they deemed to be disinformation aimed at their jurisdiction,” top CISA election security agent Brian Skully testified in a deposition released Thursday.

“They couldforward that to CISA and CISA would share that with the appropriate social mediacompanies.”
