Graham blasts soft-spoken Bragg on crime for targeting Trump while New Yorkers are lucky they didn’t get mugged
senator. Lindsey Graham, RS, Speaking out Saturday against a possible indictment of former President Donald Trump from the Manhattan District Attorney’s office, he urged the 2024 GOP presidential nominee to fight back and “take this all the way to the fuckin’ Supreme Court.”
Graham said, speaking from Charleston, South Carolinaat the Vision ’24 Forum of the Palmetto Family Council, a prominent conservative Christian event.
In New York City, “You’re lucky if you don’t get mugged on your way to where you’re going. Is that really the hottest thing to happen in Manhattan?” Graham wondered. I think this is an ongoing, never-ending effort to destroy Donald Trump, everything about Donald Trump.

Graham also questioned the legal reasoning behind the possible indictment, citing A.J The New York Times The report said the potential charges are based on “an untested and therefore risky legal theory”.
“They’re making up things they’ve never used against anyone because they hate Trump. That’s what that is. They’re brewing a legal cocktail, to try and come up with an outlandish theory,” Graham said. “The law hasn’t been used by anyone in New York, just because they hate Trump. You know why they do it? Because they’re afraid of Trump. That’s why they do it.”
Graham pointed out Targeting Trump called it a “selective trial” and said that if it were Trump, he would “take all this way to the fuckin’ Supreme Court”.

A court source told Fox News Digital that Office of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg He will meet with law enforcement to “discuss the logistics for some time next week, which means they expect an indictment next week.”
The potential indictment likely stems from the years-long investigation into Trump’s alleged money scandal involving a porn actress. Stormy Daniels. Towards the end of the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump’s then-attorney Michael Cohen sent Daniels $130,000 to prevent her from revealing her affair with Trump in 2006. Trump paid off Cohen in instalments.
