GOP Senator Lindsey Graham has warned there will be “riots in the streets” if Donald Trump is charged with misusing classified documents.
Graham proposed that there be a two-tier legal system based on policies in support of Joe Biden and against the former president.
“Most Republicans, myself included, believe that when it comes to Trump, there is no law. It’s just a matter of getting him,’ Graham agreed FoxNews On Sunday evening.
“There’s a double standard when it comes to Trump. What happened to Hunter Biden is that the FBI stepped in to ensure the story didn’t break before the 2020 election.
“We now have whistleblowers at the FBI who are saying to Senator Chuck Grassley that they were told to slow down and back off from Hunter Biden.
“And I’ll say that if there’s a charge of donald trump for the misuse of classified information after the Clinton debacle…there will be riots in the streets.

“I’m worried about the country,” he said, likening the situation to the controversy over Clinton’s use of a personal email server during her tenure as secretary of state.
Senator Graham also expressed concern about what he sees as disparities in enforcing the law, particularly among conservative Republicans.
Graham said he felt the FBI’s raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago proved there was a “double standard” in federal enforcement that could lead people to do violent things.
“You love the law and I love the law. I’ve never been more concerned about the law in politics than I am now. How do you tell a conservative Republican that the system works when it comes to President Trump? What happened in Crossfire Hurricane was a hoax of an investigation. People lied and tampered with the evidence. Check out what happened to Hunter Biden. Apparently they gave him a full passport. And social media suppressed information that could be important.”
