Republican Senator: “If Trump is Sued for Mishandling of Secret Documents, There Will Be a Riot in the Streets” |  Abroad

Republican Senator: “If Trump is Sued for Mishandling of Secret Documents, There Will Be a Riot in the Streets” | Abroad

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, 67, spoke strong language on conservative right-wing Fox News yesterday. He returned to search for former President Donald Trump at his home in Mar-a-Lago, Florida. Graham said that if Trump is prosecuted for allegedly keeping secret state documents, “street riots will erupt” in the United States.

In 2016, Graham called his fellow party member Trump an “idiot” and “crazy” during the presidential election. But when Trump was elected president, Graham quickly dropped his criticism and proved himself a major Trump supporter. Graham allegedly lobbied eventual officials for the 2020 presidential election in Georgia to invalidate votes for Biden, so that Trump would continue to win the lost state. But after Trump supporters stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021, Graham grew tired and distanced himself again from Trump.

Today, the South Carolina senator appears to be backing the former president once again. According to Graham, a legal witch hunt is taking place and the US court operates with two scales. Most Republicans, myself included, think there is no law whatsoever when it comes to Trump. It’s just about getting it.”

Hillary Clinton

The Republican senator referred to the “Clinton disaster” to “Hillary Clinton who set up a butler in her basement.” He was referring to the fact that Hillary Clinton, in her position as Secretary of State, used her private email address at the time rather than her more secure government email address. Then the FBI and the State Department opened a separate investigation into Clinton, who fully cooperated.

In July 2016, the FBI concluded that while there was “evidence of possible criminal violations” related to the handling of classified information, there was insufficient reason to bring charges. The State Department also concluded in 2019 that “there is no compelling evidence of systematic and willful mishandling of classified information.” Clinton was never accused of the facts.

Graham compares the research in Mar-a-Lago on August 8 and suggests that Trump, after Clinton, should not be prosecuted, either. While searching Mar-a-Lago, US courts searched for allegedly classified government documents that Trump would not have provided the state for safekeeping – as required by law – but would have kept. Trump has denied doing anything illegal.

He explained: How many investigations are underway against Trump now?
