Graham To Capitol Cops: ‘Use’ Your Guns as Ashli Babbitt and Others Entered Capitol

And wait until you hear about his call to the White House.

The MAGA Movement was in rare Twitter form on Tuesday, as news of a rant by Lindsey Graham started making the rounds.

According to one of his fellow Senators, the South Carolinian was imploring Capitol Police to use their firearms as supporters of then-President Donald Trump breached the Capitol on January 6th.

“What are you doing? Take back the Senate! You’ve got guns. Use them,” Graham told Capitol police, according to an extensive report from the Washington Post, which described Graham as “irate” that senators were forced to leave their chambers during the storming of the Capitol.

“We give you guns for a reason,” he said. “Use them.” The Washington Post stated the quotes were based on an unnamed Republican senator with knowledge of the incident.

And that wasn’t all:

“Graham was quite clear on this point, noting that the backpacks and other items brought into the Capitol could have contained bombs and explosives.  The damage could have been much, much worse,” Graham’s communications director, Kevin Bishop, said.

Graham also called Ivanka Trump, former President Donald Trump’s oldest daughter, multiple times and gave suggestions on what the then-president should say, according to the report.

“You need to get these people out of here,” he reportedly told her. “This thing is going south. This is not good. You’re going to have to tell these people to stand down. Stand down.”

One protester was shot and killed on that day:  Ashli Babbitt, a supporter of then-President Donald Trump, who was attempting to enter a restricted area when a Capitol Officer fired on her.
