Graham, McCain both support Trump on Saipov, says he can go to GITMO!

Both Lindsey Graham and John McCain are backing Trump in potentially treating Sayfullo Saipov as an enemy combatant and sending him to Guantanamo Bay.

Here’s what Graham tweeted just a few minutes ago:








McCain released this statement earlier:

“The terrorist attack in New York is the latest brutal, horrific example of the war that radical Islamist extremists are waging against our nation and or way of live. From Orlando to San Bernardino and Boston to Manhattan, we must not consider these attacks on our homeland in isolation, but rather recognize them for what they are: acts of war. As such, the New York terror suspect should be held and interrogated–thoroughly, responsibly, and humanely–as an enemy combatant consistent with the Law of Armed Conflict. He should not be read Miranda Rights, as enemy combatants are not entitled to them. As soon as possible, the administration should notify Congress how it plans to proceed with the interrogation and trial of this suspect.”

McCain also told this to reporters today:

“Take him to Guantanamo. He’s a terrorist and he should be kept there. And there’s no Miranda rights for somebody who kills Americans”
