Senator Lindsey Graham has sounded the alarm on growing discontent across the United States, especially with regards to the FBI’s startling raid on Mar-a-Lago.
Needless to say, the raid appeared more structured for PR optics than structured according to the law, but the law has lately appeared relative.
However, since the FBI’s efforts appear more anti-Trump in nature than anything else, especially considering that even Mark Zuckerberg recently admitted that he agreed to censor the Hunter Biden story after being contacted by the FBI, it is no surprise that Americans may react very poorly to such egregious abuse of power.
After all, the shakedowns of political opponents are characteristic of third-world dictatorships, rather than the alleged representation to be found in an advanced economy.
During an appearance on Fox News’ “Sunday Night in America,” Graham foreshadowed “riots in the streets” if the FBI attempted to pass any trumped up charges against the former president.
“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,” Graham remarked, “I worry about the country.”
The South Carolina senator also pointed out the clear “double standard” with regards to federal law enforcement efforts, especially in light of Zuckerberg’s recent admission of kowtowing to the FBI.
“Most Republicans, including me, believe when it comes to Trump, there is no law. It’s all about ‘getting him,’” Graham continued.
To date, the Mar-a-Lago raid has created immense furor, and the ultimately outcome appears uncertain. However, the Trump team has assembled a cadre of lawyers in the meantime.
