Rev. Graham: Who Tried to Influence Election? Start With CNN, CBS, ABC, NBC, MSNBC, Soros, Hollywood

Rev. Franklin Graham (BGEA). 

Although left-wing activists and the liberal media are trying to blame Russia or Wikileaks or the FBI for Donald Trump's presidential election win back in November, Christian leader Franklin Graham said the culprits who truly tried to influence the 2016 race included "CNN, CBS, ABC News, NBC, MSNBC, CNBC, Fox News, The New York Times, Washington Post, George Soros [and] Hollywood." 

In an April 4 post on Facebook, reverend Graham said, "Get over it! The election was 5 months ago and some just won’t let it go. At first the media blamed WikiLeaks, then they blamed FBI Director Comey, then they blamed the Russians -- even though all the intelligence services have said the Russians didn’t affect the outcome of the election."

"If you really want to look at those who tried to influence the election, you need to start with CNN, CBS, ABC News, NBC, MSNBC, CNBC, Fox News, The New York Times, Washington Post, George Soros, Hollywood -- they all tried to influence the outcome of the election, one way or the other," said Rev. Graham. 

"It’s time to move on," he said. "Get over it."

"Politicians who I respect like Sen. Lindsey Graham, Sen. John McCain, and some other Republicans need to stop looking backward and get behind the president as he tries to lead our country out of the deep hole that Washington politicians have created for us," said Franklin Graham, son of world-renowned evangelist Billy Graham. 

"President Donald J. Trump can’t do this on his own," said Rev. Graham.  "Work together to fix our broken healthcare system, to rebuild our depleted military, to secure our borders, and to overhaul our tax code which is so complicated that even the senators and congressmen have to have outside help to do their taxes!"

"It’s time to get over the Russians -- and move America forward!" he said. "With your prayers and God’s help, that can happen."

Franklin Graham, 64, is president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) and the international Christian aid group Samaritan's Purse.
