Graham calls storming of Capitol ‘mind-boggling’



Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham called the violence at the U.S. Capitol “mind-boggling” and echoed the call by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer for the Senate’s sergeant of arms to resign. (Jan. 7)

He called the violence at the U.S. Capitol “mind-boggling” and echoed the call by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer for the Senate’s sergeant of arms to resign.

“The first thing that stands out to me is how embarrassed and disgusted I am that the United States Capitol could be taken over by domestic terrorists while we’re in session, transferring power from one president to the other,” he said.

Graham also urged the formation of a joint task force to prosecute everyone who entered the Capitol illegally.

“The people sitting in the chairs need to be sitting in a jail cell. The people who attacked the Capitol Hill police need to be charged with attacking a police officer. Sedition, maybe a charge for some of these people.”

The South Carolina senator said Thursday that Trump “needs to understand that his actions were the problem, not the solution.”

Graham was a foe of Trump’s during the 2016 campaign and questioned his mental fitness for office. Once Trump was in office, however, Graham became one of his closest confidants and often played golf with him.

He also slammed the president’s legal team Thursday.

“There’s been a constant effort by people from the president’s legal team to provide misinformation, to distort the facts, to make accusations that cannot be proven, that needs to stop,” he said.

“As to the 25th Amendment being invoked, I do not believe that’s appropriate at this point.”
