Will the Real Lindsay Graham Please Stand Up; he ordered 6/1 Protestors be Shot.
In a new report on the 6/1 protests that took place earlier this year, the Washington Post claims Republican Senator Lindsay Graham at one point called for police to ‘use’ their guns to take back the Senate.
The report says that Graham was evacuated from his chambers and taken to an undisclosed location; just after rioters had breached the Capitol.
What are you doing? Take back the Senate! You’ve got guns. Use them,” the senator yelled at the Senate sergeant-in-arms, according to sources cited by the Post.
This is disturbing news on so many levels; more so knowing that an unarmed woman was shot and killed by a Capitol policeman.
The article continues; Graham then told police they are given guns “for a reason” and to “use them.” A gun was eventually used by a Capitol officer, leading to the death of Ashli Babbitt.
What was Graham thinking?
The Post goes on to claim that Graham was also in contact with Trump’s daughter, Ivana, at the time and pleaded with her to have her father help “get these people out of here.”
“This thing is going south,” Graham said, insisting Trump tell them to “stand down.”
The US lawmakers, including Graham, were gathered on January 6, 2021 to certify Joe Biden’s presidential victory over Trump.
The crowd outside were there to protest the election results at Trump’s behest; before Capitol Police opened the doors and let them into the building. Videos confirm this was the case. These have been presented as evidence in court.
After Babbitt was shot, Trump called on protestors to go home.
Graham had a rocky relationship with Trump from the beginning. After 6/1 he broke away saying; I hate it being this way. Oh my god I hate it… but today all I can say is count me out. Enough is enough. I tried to be helpful.”
Graham changed his tune since saying Trump should run for president in 2024, but Trump trashed him; over reports that he investigated claims of fraud yet found no evidence.
Will the real Lindsay Graham please stand up?
Who is the man? He has always been a dark horse alongside his terrible twin John McCain; going back to the Bush Administration.
These two seemed to qualify for what is known as RINO’s a great deal of the time; that is Republicans in Name Only.
Despite blowing hot and cold Graham sided with the Obama Administration on many issues, with some saying that he secretly worked for the Dems.
He supported the Obama’s administration’s stance on many foreign policy issues; like in Syria and Libya, amongst others.
Is Lindsay Graham like McCain before him, a traitor who bats for the other team?
He plays both sides when it suits him and no one seems to know where he stands.
One thing’s for certain he can’t be trusted; ever.
