Republicans are not playing.
Republican Senator Lindsey Graham has warned the FBI and DOJ that there will be “riots in the streets” if former President Trump gets prosecuted for how he handled classified materials which were taken from the White House following the FBI raid at him Florida Mar-a-Lago home.
According to The Hill, Graham told former Congressman Trey Gowdy on Fox, “If there’s a prosecution of Donald Trump for mishandling classified information, after the Clinton debacle … there’ll be riots in the streets.”
Trump then shared the clip of Graham’s comments to Gowdy on his social media platform Truth Social.
Graham further noted that former President Donald Trump is treated with a terrible “double standard” while also repeating his warning of riots if the Georgia special grand jury attempts to indict Trump as well.
“Most Republicans, including me, believes when it comes to Trump, there is no law. It’s all about getting him,” Graham added.
“I’ve never been more worried about the law and politics as I am right now,” he added.
