You heard right. What you missed is graham saying the civilians who are unlawful enemy combatants.
Only those type of civilians can be tried in military courts.
The Military Commissions Act of 2006, passed by Congress on Jan. 3, 2006 and signed into law by President Bush on Oct. 17, 2006, stated:
The term ‘unlawful enemy combatant’ means:
1. a person who has engaged in hostilities or who has purposefully and materially supported hostilities against the United States or its co-belligerents who is not a lawful enemy combatant (including a person who is part of the Taliban, al Qaeda, or associated forces); or
2. a person who, before, on, or after the date of the enactment of the Military Commissions Act of 2006, has been determined to be an unlawful enemy combatant by a Combatant Status Review Tribunal or another competent tribunal
established under the authority of the President or the Secretary of Defense.”
Lets zero in on:
“or who has purposefully and materially supported hostilities against the United States”
I am pretty sure that there is evidence that some of these people did that. The Clinton’s for sure(selling secrets-selling our uranium). McCain in Syria meeting terrorist’s. That gives us a clue what they have all been up to.
Now would conspiring against the President of the united states to overthrow him and to severely impede him in his duties- be considered hostile?
The Term “hostile” is a pretty vague term.
