Senator Graham made no testimony to a report calling on Capitol police officers to shoot Trump terrorists on 1/6.
The Washington Post reported:
The Senate and House chairs had also been evacuated by the Capitol Police and taken to an undisclosed location, but many lawmakers stayed in their chambers for a few minutes before being moved to the safety of the Hart Senate office building.
Senator Lindsey O. Graham was furious that Senators were forced to flee their own chamber. He yelled at the Senate sergeant. “What are you doing? Take back the Senate! You have guns. Use them.” The South Carolina Senator was persistent. “We give you guns for a reason,” he repeated. “Use it.”
Lindsey Graham received no response to the Post’s report.
Graham just tweeted to wish Jen Psaki all the best after being diagnosed with COVID:
We wish @PressSec Jen Psaki a full and complete recovery from COVID-19. https://t.co/wO9NYYD0GS

If the report was incorrect, Graham could have tweeted a denial. Instead, he didn’t say anything, which means that Lindsey Graham likely wanted the Capitol Police to shoot Donald Trump’s supporters.
On Sunday, Rep. Reuben Gallego (D-AZ) called Graham a hypocrite, a liar and a coward all rolled into one.
Senator Graham’s silence is the only answer the American people need to hear.
Lindsey Graham is too scared to tell the truth, so he falls silent in the face of overwhelming evidence that he called on the police to shoot down the Capitol insurgents.
