Lindsey Graham says Capitol Police 'let the country down' during riot

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) appears to have been unaffected by the graphic footage shown on Wednesday during the second impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump.

Graham, one of Trump's most vocal supporters, told reporters he thinks "there's more votes for acquittal after today than there was yesterday," and   claimed   the House impeachment managers' "legal theory" is that "Trump's a secret member of the Proud Boys." This, he said, is "absurd."

The impeachment managers presented audio and video of the pro-Trump mob storming the Capitol, crushing and shoving police officers who tried to block them. Graham compared those rioters to people who have protested outside of his home, saying, "I think this is a very hypocritical presentation by the House."

The footage did make him "mad,"   he said,   but not because of the way law enforcement was treated. "I mean, these police officers had every right to use deadly force," Graham said. "They should have used it. The people in charge of securing the Capitol let the country down."

Spineless weasel.

Those police were overwhelmed and outnumbered by the former occupant of the White House's mob.  

Those killers told the police that they were outnumbered and they were there on orders by their boss.

Party of responsibility my ass. . .

Party of Law and Order my ass . . .

Graham says the Capitol police should have used deadly force. That would have been suicide considering what would happen when their guns ran out of bullets. Graham is a fucking idiot.

DC police were warned ahead of-time. They should have been prepared.

It was up to the former occupants of the White House to ensure that.  They didn't.

The Inciter in Chief refused to have the National Guard come in for over two hours.  

The former occupant of the White House has a lot of blood/death on his hands including and up to the incitement of his mob (even though he was working them into a frenzy for months) on 1/6/21.

Are you saying that Trump was not the Commander in Chief? 

Seriously?  Some General didn't like the optics of the Guard with the Capital in the background?

If that General preferred what everyone was seeing then he should retire immediately.

All indications are that Trump watched the attack on TV and did nothing, actually enjoying it.

Pence called out the Guard after being rescued and evacuated from the Capital.

They let the country down by not using lethal force on fellow Americans?

Enjoy your last term Senator...

The 'Not Guilty' vote is growing after today. I think most Republicans found the presentation by the House Managers offensive and absurd.
