……Well, a lot of January 6th defendants have been languishing in pretrial detention for months. They were denied bail. They have not been convicted of any crime. Some of them have been accused of nonviolent crimes. That’s not supposed to happen in this country. It violates our Constitution, but it is happening anyway.
And this weekend, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina announced, he applauds it.
SEN. LINDSEY GRAHAM (R-SC): “I don’t want to reinforce that defiling the Capitol was okay. I don’t want to do anything that would make this more likely in the future. I want to deter people who did what they did on January the 6th, and those who did it, I hope they go to jail and get the book thrown at them because they deserve it.”
CARLSON: I hope they go to jail, get the book thrown out. Okay, that’s fine. We’re all for prosecuting crimes. But if you don’t prosecute them equally, then you don’t really have a justice system, you have arbitrary politically driven punishment, and with that in mind, because of course, everyone in America knows that’s exactly what’s going on right now, we will tell you this.
We have uncovered the Justice Department asked for a lenient sentence for a rioter who killed a man after burning down in Minneapolis pawnshop in 2020. The D.O.J. asked for a sentence of only 12 years, that’s about half the sentencing guideline. Now why didn’t they want to send a murderer to prison?
Well, the Biden administration lawyer noted that the defendant, quote, ” … credibly states that he was in the streets to protest unlawful police violence.” Oh, he was a BLM protester. He wasn’t upset about Biden stealing the election. Therefore, let’s half his sentence for murder.
……JULIE KELLY, “AMERICAN GREATNESS”: “So apparently he is in support of the more than 70 men who are under pretrial detention orders, about 40 of them in a political prison in D.C., just in the shadow of the U.S. Capitol Building where Lindsey Graham works.
They have been denied bail repeatedly as their trials continue to be delayed into the middle or even end of this year. Important to underscore, these defendants have not been convicted of any crime. Some of them Tucker, maybe Lindsey Graham will be happy to hear this, have been in jail for over a year now, and awaiting these trials. They can’t even see their evidence against them, so hopefully that makes Lindsey Graham feel good.
Seven hundred and thirty Americans have been arrested and charged for mostly misdemeanor offenses related to January 6. So, hopefully this will make him feel much better. I don’t know where he is getting his information from, but what’s happening — I talked to the wife of a detainee again tonight, and what I hear people say to me repeatedly, Tucker, is they can’t believe this is happening in the United States of America. These things should not be happening.
But Lindsey Graham, instead of defending the Constitution, the rule of law, the presumption of innocence, everything that’s being trashed by this D.O.J., he actually is playing along once again with the Democrats. Really shameful stuff.”
Lindsey Graham is a bona fide piece of shit. That motherfucker doesn’t have much to say about the Antifa/BLM rampages, but exercise your First Amendment rights, and he thinks the capitol cops should mow you down. He was probably elated when Ashli Babbitt was murdered.
When Prog radicals stormed into the Hart Senate building and the state capitols of Iowa, Wisconsin, and Georgia, none of them were shot. When left-wing protesters tried to break down the door to the SCOTUS while Bret Kavanaugh was sworn in, no one was shot. Sandy Cortez led a group of protesters that stormed Pelosi’s office in 2018 for hours until Capitol Hill Police arrested 51 of the protesters for unlawful entry and protest; a stunt that was praised by the media. No one was shot. Where the fuck was Graham’s outrage?
American political prisoners have been held for more than a year in solitary confinement in 7X10 cells for 23 hours a day. These people have not been convicted of any crimes, they are being held in “pretrial detention” for trespassing the capitol halls of corruption on 6 January 2021. Their trials have not been set. They have been denied bail. They are not allowed to meet with lawyers in private. They have one hour a day for “exercise”, showers, and phone calls. They have been denied due process.
One of them died awaiting trial.
The Dems have created a system of bullying and persecution of political opponents. This shit usually happens in Communist countries and Banana Republics. Now it’s happening here.
