Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Sunday predicted that if former president trump is prosecuted for the way he handled the private classified materials found in his Mar-a-Lago estate there may be riots in the streets.
Graham also noted that especially following the Clinton debacle, any prosecution of Trump could be taken the wrong way.
In a clip of his interview with former South Carolina congressman and host of Fox News’s “Sunday Night in America,” Trey Goody, that was then shared by Trump on Truth Social, the two discussed the topic more in depth.
Goody was the chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, which looked into the 2012 terrorist attack in Libya which resulted in the death of four Americans. It was this investigation that uncovered the private email server used by Clinton.
Graham warned that if there is a double standard in the way Trump is treated, as well as if the Georgia special grand jury is probing into Trump’s attempts to overturn the state elections, there could be riots.
Graham has also received a subpoena by the investigating team regarding phone calls he made to Georgia election officials looking to change the results of the elections. He also noted that before the 2020 election the FBI was warned to “back off” on any investigations of Hunter Biden’s laptop.
However, Graham said that many Republicans, including himself, believe that these cases against Trump have nothing to do with the law and they are all about getting him.
