When pressed if he thought violence is “unacceptable,” Graham responded: “Violence is unacceptable, but how do countries fracture?”
He said “fascist states … use the state and the law as a tool of their agenda,” and that he’s apprehensive about “trust” issues within the U.S., and a “double standard” for law enforcement.
Graham was sharply criticized after he raised the specter of violence for enforcing the law, and indicated that Trump is beyond legal restrictions, in an interview last Sunday with Fox News.
Graham on Saturday repeated his litany of what he considers unfair investigations of Trump.
He again indicated that Americans will resort to violence due to a harsher standard for Trump in comparison with the treatment of Hillary Clinton.
Clinton used a non-public email server when she was secretary of state — a practice reportedly employed by each Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner to conduct official business once they were White House senior advisers within the Trump administration.
In Trump’s case, after officials attempted for well over a 12 months to retrieve U.S. documents from the previous president, FBI agents last month confiscated several boxes of fabric at Mar-a-Lago, including highly sensitive top-secret information haphazardly stored on the unsecured resort, where they potentially might have been accessed by enemies of the U.S.
