Wait, what? Graham suggests cops should’ve SHOT the pro-Trump Jan 6 folks?!!!
The Washington Post claimed in an investigative series that an unnamed Republican senator is asserting that Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) yelled at the sergeant-at-arms on Jan. 6 during the Capitol riot to shoot protesters.
“What are you doing? Take back the Senate! You’ve got guns. Use them!” Graham allegedly yelled during the chaos. “We give you guns for a reason. Use them.”
On Sunday, the Washington Post published a three-part series that supposedly reconstructs in detail what happened before, during, and after the Capitol riot. CNN ran with the allegation. Host Jim Acosta eagerly reported the unverified statement as fact, going so far as to bring up the Boston Massacre and assertions that protesters wanted to try politicians in public for their misdeeds.
