“We give you guns for a reason—use them,” he said during the riot (via Fox News):
Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham urged Capitol police to use their guns and regain control of the Capitol on Jan. 6, a new report details.
“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.
Graham’s office confirmed the quotes are “accurate” in a statement to Fox News on Monday.
“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.
