(RoyalPatriot.com )- South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham blasted the “double standard” evident in how President Biden’s mishandling of classified documents is being treated compared to former President Trump.
Appearing on “The Record With Greta Van Susteren” on Newsmax last Wednesday, Graham said the justice system deals with “conservatives and liberals” differently, and “it needs to stop.”
Graham told host Greta Van Susteren that the media is complicit in the double standard and suggested that social media companies be regulated because they are “an extension of the Democratic Party in many ways.”
Graham added that when it comes to applying the law, America isn’t a “fair place.”
Graham also called for Attorney General Merrick Garland to appoint a special counsel since a special counsel was appointed to investigate former President Trump.
On Thursday, Attorney General Garland announced that he had appointed a special counsel to investigate the classified documents found at Biden’s Wilmington home and in an office at the Penn Biden Center in Washington.
The AG’s announcement came after the White House acknowledged Thursday morning that, in addition to the classified documents found in the president’s garage, classified documents were also found in Biden’s home office.
Garland has appointed Robert Hur, the former Trump-appointed US Attorney in Maryland. Hur will take over from the top DOJ prosecutor in Chicago, John Lausch, who had previously been assigned by the DOJ to investigate the classified documents found.
In another example of a “double standard,” the Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday that the Justice Department decided against sending FBI agents to the president’s Delaware home to monitor his attorneys’ search for classified documents.
Sure, Trump gets an FBI raid while Biden’s lawyers, who do not hold appropriate security clearances, are left in peace to hunt for classified documents squirreled away in Biden’s residence.
