A report published over the weekend by The Washington Post revealed that Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told the Senate sergeant-at-arms to retake the Senate chamber during the January 6 riot by using the guns that they were issued to protect Senators.
The Washington Post reported:
The Senate and House leaders also had been evacuated by Capitol Police and taken to an undisclosed location, but many lawmakers remained in their chambers for a few minutes before they were led to safety in the Hart Senate Office Building. Sen. Lindsey O. Graham was irate that senators were forced to flee their own chamber. He yelled at the Senate sergeant-at-arms. “What are you doing? Take back the Senate! You’ve got guns.
