Even after former President Donald Trump referred to him as a “RINO” – a Republican in name only – South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham remained steadfast in his opposition to pardons for Jan. 6 defendants. On Newsmax on Tuesday night, Trump labeled Graham a RINO for refusing to pardon overcharged and mistreated arrestees from the Jan. 6, 2021 attack on the Capitol. Graham explained his stance in a statement released on Wednesday. According to The Hill, Graham added, “I stand in solidarity with the police officers who protect our streets, federal courthouses, and the United States Capitol from rioting.” “They deserve our respect and support, and I will not call their judgments in the face of adversity into doubt.”

During an appearance on Tuesday’s “Rob Schmitt Tonight,” Trump was asked about the criticism he has received from people like Graham over his request that “political prisoners,” as Trump refers to them, be pardoned. “Well, Lindsey Graham is wrong,” Trump said. “Lindsey is a great person, but he’s a RINO.” Lindsey is mistaken. “All Americans have the right to a prompt and fair trial, but those who deliberately participate in violence for whatever political reason must be held accountable and not dismissed.”

“I would absolutely be prepared,” Trump said, “and Lindsey Graham has no clue what he’s talking about if he says that, because you have to have equal justice.” “What has happened to this group of people is completely unfair.” Graham is largely considered to be one of Trump’s most prominent congressional supporters. Trump routinely referred to other Republicans, such as Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., as “RINOs.”

Graham has stated that if Trump so desires, he should be the Republican Party’s likely presidential nominee in 2024, “unless something truly surprising happens.” Graham informed Republicans three weeks ago that Trump is the Republican Party’s face, even threatening McConnell. “Elections are about the future,” Graham said. “If you want to be a Republican leader in the House or Senate, you must have a working relationship with President Donald Trump.” He is the most powerful Republican since Ronald Reagan. If he wants it, he can get it, and I believe he will be re-elected in 2024.”
