Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has warned the nation that the FBI could end up arresting former President Donald Trump.
On Sunday, Sen. Lindsey Graham, a former Never-Trumper, said on Fox News, that a Trump indictment would result in “riots in the streets.”
Graham noted how former Vice President Hilary Clinton was never charged for her usage of a private email server for official government business. “If there’s a prosecution of Donald Trump for mishandling classified information, after the Clinton debacle…there’ll be riots in the streets,” Graham explained.
Amidst the January 6th protest, the South Carolina Senator allegedly yelled at the sergeant-at-arms, demanding the Capitol Police begin shooting Trump supporters.
“What are you doing? Take back the Senate! You’ve got guns. Use them. We give you guns for a reason. Use them,” the New York Post reported Graham said.
Despite tearing up while praising Joe Biden in 2016, Graham eventually threw support behind Trump.
Following the January 6th protest, Graham happily found an excuse to stop supporting Trump, who many consider to be the most anti-establishment president in decades.
But, Graham flip-flopped once again, eventually saying, “To try to erase Donald Trump from the Republican party is insane.”
Graham’s latest prediction that Trump supporters would riot in the streets boldly contrasts his past opinions of Trump and MAGA supporters.
Richard Painter, a former White House ethics chief, said, “a senator who calls for ‘riots in the streets’ if Trump is indicted should be expelled from the Senate. He’s inciting January 6 all over again.”
Richard Haas, the president of the Council on Foreign Relations, called Graham’s comments “irresponsible” and said, “public officials are to call for the rule of law.”
