Lindsey Graham Predicts Violence if the Persecution of President Trump Continues

South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham took to Trey Gowdy’s “Sunday Night in America” program on FoxNews to sound a warning about the political persecution of President Trump and the “rules for thee but not for me” justice system becoming evident in our country.


You love the law, I love the law. I’ve never been more worried about the law in politics as I am right now. How can you tell a conservative Republican that the system works when it comes to President Trump? Look at what happened in Crossfire Hurricane, it was a joke of an investigation. People lied and manipulated the evidence. Look at what happened to Hunter Biden. They gave him a complete pass, apparently. And social media outlets suppressed information that could have mattered. If they tried to prosecute President Trump for mishandling classified information after Hillary Clinton set up a server in her basement, there literally will be riots in the street. I worry about the country.

The responses were predictable.


The cornerstone of “equal justice under the law” is that similar facts should yield similar outcomes. Equally important is that the winners of elections don’t try to imprison the losers. Anything President Trump might have done, and you’ll note that only the mouthbreathing left is claiming Trump had classified documents, even the FBI thugs are referring to documents “with classified markings,” pales in comparison with Hillary Clinton’s cavalier treatment of actual classified material. Yet that evidence was deemed insufficient to prosecute her.

I don’t know why anyone would be even mildly surprised at massive civil unrest if President Trump is indicted. People will only take so much. If riots wracked American cities over the death of a career criminal and drug addict, yes, I’m talking about Saint George Floyd, it would be a shocking example of self-restraint if all of the 74 million Americans who cast votes for the winner…oops, didn’t mean to let that slip…in 2020 sat meekly on their sofas eating Hot Pockets and watching the events unfold on television. Violence as an expression of political outrage was legitimized during the summer of 2020, and that bell cannot be un-rung.

More to the point, from the earliest days of the 2016 election season, the political left has tried to use Third World tactics to discredit candidate Trump and then to drive President Trump from office. From the ludicrous Steele Dossier and the Crossfire Hurricane investigation through the bizarre impeachment launched by Lieutenant Colonel Krispy Kreme. Since President Trump has left office, he has been targeted for destruction by the New York Attorney General, Attorney General Merrick Garland, and the Biden White House.


The bottom line is that the Democrats and the left have worked damned hard to erase 200+ years of American political tradition in favor of imitating Pakistan (The Political Persecution of President Trump Is Not Going to Make Trump or His Supporters Go Away or Accept the Outcome). They have made the change of power a bloodsport where the winners get to use the state’s power to persecute the losers. They have no right to complain about what happens next.
