A shocking new report has revealed that Senator Lindsey Graham told law enforcement officers to open fire on protestors during the events of January 6.
A damning new report by the Gateway Pundit reveals that Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) urged law enforcement officers on January 6 to open fire on pro-Trump protestors. While crowds of election fraud protesters were entering the Capitol and as Senators sheltered in place, Graham reportedly urged the Senate sergeant-at-arms to unleash live fire and kill protestors.
“What are you doing? Take back the Senate! You’ve got guns. Use them,” Graham allegedly yelled. “We give you guns for a reason,” he repeated insistently. “Use them.”
The quote was taken from a Washington Post article regarding the timeline of events during the January 6 protests.
The Senate and House leaders also had been evacuated by Capitol Police and taken to an undisclosed location, but many lawmakers remained in their chambers for a few minutes before they were led to safety in the Hart Senate Office Building. Sen. Lindsey O. Graham was irate that senators were forced to flee their own chamber. He yelled at the Senate sergeant-at-arms. “What are you doing? Take back the Senate! You’ve got guns. Use them.” The South Carolina senator was adamant. “We give you guns for a reason,” he repeated. “Use them.”
Shortly after January 6, Graham was caught at an airport where he was repeatedly called a “traitor” by Trump supporters who were upset over his choice to fight for the certification of Joe Biden’s presidency despite evidence of voter fraud in the 2020 election.
“Did you take an oath?” one man asked Graham. “Yeah. I did,” Graham replied as he scurried away.
“Yeah? You p*ssed on that oath!” the man shouted back at the South Carolina Senator.
