Lindsey Graham: Impeachment will help Trump win back White House
Sen. Lindsey Graham predicted on Saturday that an indictment of former President Donald Trump next week by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg would only help his presidential campaign.
“The New York Attorney did more to help Donald Trump get elected President than any single person in America,” Graham said at the Palmetto Family Council’s Vision 24 presidential forum on Saturday.
Earlier Saturday, Trump went to Truth Social and said he expects to be arrested Tuesday — on charges related to paying hush money to porn star Stormy Daniels ahead of the 2016 election.
Trump then called out “PROTEST, PROTEST, PROTEST!!!”. repeated calls he made after falsely telling his supporters that the 2020 election was stolen from him, leading to the January 6 attack on the Capitol.
“I don’t think that’s the right approach,” Graham told DailyMail.com after his performance in North Charleston. “I think he should challenge this in court. He will win. That’s an exaggeration by the Manhattan Attorney’s Office.’

“I think it will help him politically,” the South Carolina Republican reiterated.
Asked if Trump’s calls for demonstrations similar to the Jan. 6 could lead to political violence, Graham addressed the Black Lives Matter protests that followed the death of George Floyd in May 2020.
“People protest after George Floyd if they think something’s wrong, okay, you know? People take to the streets when they think they’ve been wronged,” Graham said. “What I would suggest to the President is to focus on his legal position, fight back in court and let everyone in America know that they are doing this because they are politically afraid of him.”
While Graham was running against Trump for the GOP nomination in 2016, he served as the ex-president’s unofficial surrogate at the Palmetto Family Council Vision ’24 event on Saturday.
The event, held at the Charleston Area Convention Center in North Charleston, attracted presidential candidates Nikki Haley and Vivek Ramaswamy, as well as several others eyeing a bid, including South Carolina Senator Tim Scott and former Arkansas governor Asa Hutchinson.
Organizers said both Trump and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis were invited to attend but chose to skip.
South Carolina holds the first presidential primary in the South.
Graham was asked about Trump’s impending impeachment as soon as he took the stage on Saturday afternoon and his opinion on how the ex-president would react.
“Oh, I think he’ll be very calm,” Graham said, laughing.
