Lindsey Graham Predicts That ‘Riots in the Streets’ Will Happen If Trump Is Prosecuted Over Classified Documents
On Sunday, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) issued a warning that there might be “riots in the streets” if former President Trump is arrested and prosecuted for his handling of classified material discovered by the FBI during a search of his Mar-a-Lago house, according to The Hill.
“If there’s a prosecution of Donald Trump for mishandling classified information, after the Clinton debacle … there’ll be riots in the streets,” Graham tells former South Carolina congressman Trey Gowdy, who hosts Fox News’s “Sunday Night in America.”
Later on Sunday evening, Trump posted a video clip of the interview on his Truth Social account.
Gowdy served as the chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, which investigated the terrorist operations in Libya in 2012 that resulted in the deaths of four American citizens and discovered that Clinton had used a private email server.
The Hill further notes that Graham expressed worry that Trump being treated with “a double standard” and reaffirmed his warning that there may be riots over the investigation being conducted by the Georgia special grand jury into efforts by Trump and his associates to reverse the results of the 2020 election in the state.
In connection with phone calls that were made to election officials in Georgia aiming to affect the election results in the state, Graham has himself been subpoenaed in the investigation into the matter.
On Sunday, the senator from South Carolina also addressed allegations that the FBI was instructed to “back off” its investigation into Hunter Biden’s laptop in order to keep news articles about the president’s son out of the headlines in advance of the election in 2020.
“Most Republicans, including me, believes when it comes to Trump, there is no law. It’s all about getting him,” Graham said. “I’ve never been more worried about the law and politics as I am right now,” he added.
