Lindsey Graham Threatens To Go After DOJ Officials Who Investigated Trump, Ex-Prosecutor Shuts Him Down Completely

Lindsey Graham, one of Donald Trump’s most loyal Republicans, sent out a threat to Justice Department officials who have been investigating the president. But former prosecutor Glenn Kirschner was quick to shut down Graham’s threats while appearing on MSNBC’s “AM Joy.”

Speaking with host Joy Reid after a discussion on Trump demanding the Justice Department prosecute former Secretary of State John Kerry for violating the Logan Act, Kirschner started going after Graham.

“Lindsey Graham is now basically leading the ‘lock her up’ chant,” the ex-prosecutor began. “And he’s including lock-up Obama-era DOJ. officials who initiated this investigation into how Russia was trying to interfere in our election.”

“The chilling effect that that might have going forward — think about it!’ he exclaimed. “If I am a DOJ employee an FBI agent or a prosecutor and I am told listen it looks like, for example, North Korea is trying to cyber attack our country and interfere with our upcoming elections and you catch that assignment, are you going to have in the back of your head if you do it — if I do this i might be attacked by a future administration for doing the wrong thing and not the right thing to protect the country?”

“Lindsey Graham, I think, is going after these people, it is dangerous, and a perversion of what the Department of Justice is about,” he concluded.
