While We Were in Lockdown at Capitol, Lindsey Graham was Berating Police Officers For Not Protecting Lawmakers
Republican legislators have actually let Donald Trump escape with practically anything over the last 4 years. Their allowing the President, in part, caused the terrorist attack on the United States Capitol recently.
And no Republican allowed Trump more than Lindsey Graham. The South Carolina senator, who stood in mad opposition to Trump throughout the 2016 primaries, later on turned into one of his greatest fans.
When Trump advocates stormed the Capitol recently, however, Graham was looking all over for assistance. And according to Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH), Graham scolded law enforcement officers for refraining from doing enough to safeguard him from Trump’s mob.
Brown informed Ari Melber, “I heard when we — when 175 senators were confined in a room with about 75 staff people, Lindsey Graham with his mask off started screaming at one of the officers, I think it was one of the captains, saying ‘How come you didn’t protect us?’ This is the same Lindsey graham that for five years — or for fours years, he didn’t do it at the beginning, defended and argued for and abetted this president.”
Melber leapt in, “You saw — senator, while you were still in the emergency of it, you saw Senator Graham yelling or berating an officer? What was he getting at?”

The Ohio legislator continued:
“Yeah, I’ve not said this publicly yet, but when I hear graham and these others say these things and he was screaming at an officer, he had his mask off, screaming at his officer from five feet away — I was maybe ten feet on the other side. And the officer didn’t — that the police didn’t do enough to protect us. The same Lindsey Graham that aided and abetted the same number of senators that then a number of them, Lindsey wasn’t one of them, but they came back and still sided with these terrorists after the attack on our capitol, so I don’t know what they’ve learned.”
