Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, one of Donald Trump’s most fervent supporters, has a stern warning for prosecutors about to indict Trump: “It’s going to blow up our country.”
“You’ve had the prosecutor before Bragg, [Cyrus] Vance [Jr.], look at the case and pass on it. You had the U.S. attorney in New York say ‘I’m not going to do it federally,’” Graham said on Fox & Friends, suggesting that the whole situation is a nothingburger.
According to Graham, Bragg is facing political pressure to bring charges against Trump because of criticism directed at Bragg’s predecessor by former prosecutor Mark Pomerantz, who was in charge of an earlier investigation into Trump conducted by the district attorney’s office.
“There was an intervening cause other than Trump running,” Graham said. “One of the guys in the DA’s office wrote a book very critical of Vance. ‘You should have prosecuted Trump, you let him off.’ And Bragg feels that pressure.”
“The guy is yielding to the political pressure generated by the former prosecutor. This is a case without merit, in my view. Donald Trump will be the only person in the history of New York prosecuted under this theory,”
