Lindsey Graham doubles down on ‘riots in the streets’ warning

“What I tried to do was state the obvious,” Graham doubled down on his previous warning in his latest interview with CNBC.

When asked if he thinks violence is “unacceptable”, Graham replied: “Violence is unacceptable, but how do countries fracture?”

He said “fascist states…use the state and the law as a tool in their agenda,” and he worries about “trust” issues in the United States and a “double standard” for law enforcement.

Graham was heavily criticized after raising the specter of violence for law enforcement and indicating that Trump was beyond legal restrictions, in an interview last Sunday with Fox News.

Graham on Saturday repeated his litany of what he sees as unfair investigations into Trump.

He again indicated that Americans would resort to violence because of a tougher standard for Trump compared to the treatment of Hillary Clinton.

Clinton used a private email server when she was secretary of state — a practice reportedly employed by both Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner to conduct official business when they were senior White House advisers in the Trump administration.

In Trump’s case, after officials tried for more than a year to recover US documents from the former president, FBI agents last month confiscated several boxes of equipment at Mar-a-Lago, including highly sensitive top secret information randomly stored in the unsecured compound. , where they could potentially have been viewed by enemies of the United States
