Republican South Carolina senator Lindsey Graham is leading the charge to investigate and arrest the demonstrators who entered the U.S. Capitol building in order to protest the stolen 2020 election.
Graham said that “sedition” might be on the table and vowed to continuously badger law enforcement to haul away the protesters, some of whom chanted “USA!” and carried American flags. The protesters, upset by the government’s resistance to an audit of the election result, were met with force by Capitol Police. Air Force veteran Ashli Babbit was shot in the neck and killed by a police officer for participating in the protest.
Graham gained political relevance by attaching himself to President Trump’s MAGA movement, frequently appearing on “Hannity” to present himself as some kind of conservative rabble-rouser. But his establishment bona fides include years spent as John McCain’s bag man. Graham is a neocon who is clearly showing his true colors.
But now Graham wants Trump supporters jailed. The media is likewise is working to identify protesters, presumably to aid in federal investigations. Leftist Black Lives Matter and Antifa agitators, meanwhile, have wreaked havoc across America and faced very limited legal consequences while gaining the support of the government and political establishment.
Here is the late patriotic protester Ashli Babbit, who was killed by police.
