Senator Lindsey Graham defended former President Trump against a trial brought against him by Democrat congressmen and some republicans, saying members should “reject the idea of pursuing presidents after they leave office.”
He added that “Post-presidential impeachment’s never occurred in the history of the country for a reason, that it’s unconstitutional, it sets a bad precedent for the presidency, and it continues to divide the nation.”
“On the facts, his speech is not incitement under the law. Bottom line is, you’ve got a very compelling constitutional case and, on the facts, they’ll be able to mount a defense,” he added. “The main thing is to give him a chance to prepare and run the trial orderly.”
Graham rejected the notion that days business be split into the trial, and other business saying; “We’re going to do it like we’ve always done it,” said Graham. “We’re not going to split the day. At least I wouldn’t. That’s the business of the Senate, once we go into it. They’re choosing to do this, we’re going to do it the way we’ve always done it.”

This is not all, Democrats want to go after others who supported Trump after January 6th. They have threatened to revoke law degrees from Trump’s Allies. As reported mid-January:
Students at Harvard University have created a petition to revoke the degrees of Trump’s allies as punishment for voicing their political opinions.
The students said:
“Harvard must revoke the degrees of alumni whose incendiary language and subversion of democratic processes—rooted in a history of white supremacist voter suppression—incited the violent insurrection on January 6,” the petition said, which was obtained by Fox Business. “This includes all who have used their platforms to deny the validity of the presidential election. They do not and should not represent a university committed to ‘strengthening democracy’ and ‘the advancement of justice.’”
In the Petition, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX), and White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany were named.
The petition said:
“It’s no secret that over a dozen Harvard graduates worked hard to spread the disinformation and mistrust that created last Wednesday’s insurrection.”
A student told Fox business: “I was surprised how popular this petition is even among mid-career students,” “It’s one thing for 22-year-olds to sign onto something radical but another thing for 40-year-olds to buy into it.”
