Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), recently blasted President Joe Biden for his “brazen politicization” during his speech on January 6, which commemorate the one-year anniversary of the infamous attack on Capitol Hill.
On Thursday, Senator Graham tweeted in disbelief over Biden’s speech, remarking, “what brazen politicization of January 6 by President Biden.”
Recalling the Biden administration’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan, Graham pressed on to “wonder if the Taliban [who are now in charge of] Afghanistan, [along with] al-Qaeda elements present … are allowing this speech to be carried?”
Graham’s commentary on the Taliban is in reference to Biden’s harsh criticisms of former president Donald J. Tump, as Biden insisted that Trump deliberately “rallied the mob to attack” the Capital and theoretically upset the validation of electors necessary for finalizing the results of the 2020 presidential election.
Furthermore, Graham also released a separate statement on Thursday, as reported by The Hill. In his statement, Graham proclaimed that he is still in complete disbelief that an enraged mob ultimately had the ability “to take over the United States Capitol during such a pivotal moment.”
The South Carolina senator proclaimed that the participants involved in the breach of Capitol Hill on January 6 are currently facing prosecution, “as they should be.”
“I have consistently condemned the attack,” Graham continued, “and [I’ve] urged that those involved be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
However, Graham also called attention to federal buildings that have received less focus from mainstream media outlets, notably those targeted by various leftist groups.
“I hold the same views of those who attacked the federal courthouse in Portland, Oregon, and committed other acts of violence throughout our nation,” Graham asserted.
The senator blasted the January 6 speeches from both Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, which he perceives as “an effort to resurrect a failed presidency” and “[push] a liberal Democrat federal takeover of [the nation’s] election systems,” rather than an effort to “[mark] the anniversary of a dark day in American history.”
“Their brazen attempts to use January 6 to support radical election reform … will not succeed,” Graham remarked ominously.
