Video: Graham Asks ‘What Did Pelosi Know’ About Capitol Riot

Says Democrat efforts to connect Trump to Proud Boys are “Looney Tunes”

Senator Lindsey Graham suggested Wednesday that Nancy Pelosi knew about the pre-planned riot at the Capitol in January.

In an appearance on Hannity, Graham said “Here’s what I want to know: What did Nancy Pelosi know and when did she know it?”

Graham pointed to FBI communications that have revealed authorities knew there was a threat and that agitators were heading to Washington DC to start a “war”, and had placed pipe bombs in the area the night before.

Watch:

Graham argued that the FBI revelations disprove the Democrats’ claim that President Trump’s speech and further comments on the 6th of January were the main cause of the unrest.

“The whole storyline, originally, was Trump created this with his speech,” Graham said.

“Now we know that people had this on their mind before he spoke. So now they’re playing this bizarre game of trying to get Trump in on it before Jan. 6…This is why you don’t want to have snap impeachments,” he added.

Referring to the show trial, Graham said that “The not-guilty vote is growing after today. I think most Republicans found the presentation by the House managers offensive and absurd.”

In an effort to prevent Democrat taking his comments out of context, Graham clarified that “We all know what happened in the Capitol was terrible. I hope everybody involved that broke into the Capitol goes to jail.”

Graham also commented on the impeachment managers’ efforts to connect Trump to the Proud Boys organisation, stating “The managers have got this cockamamie idea, an absurd theory that Donald Trump was monitoring the Proud Boys website and other far-right websites and he and [former White House Deputy Chief of Staff] Dan Scavino knew this was going to happen and they encouraged it.”

“That is Looney Tunes,” Graham urged.

Watch: MSNBC Compares GOP Congresswoman To Osama Bin Laden For Displaying Guns

“It communicates that they’re committed to, or at the very least open to the possibility of violent overthrow of the government”

An MSNBC news host compared A Republican congresswoman to Osama Bin Laden Tuesday because she had guns on display at her home.

Chris Hayes also suggested that the display by Congresswoman Lauren Boebert was meant to convey the message that conservatives are willing resort to violence to instigate a coup in the US.

Watch:

“Do you notice something different with the bookshelves? Not just a stockpile of weapons sitting behind her, there is a deeper meaning to this image. An implicit threat, too,” Hayes proclaimed, showing an image of Boebert at home with two ARs, a shotgun, and a Glock behind her.

“Osama bin Laden, for one liked to pose in front of a bookshelf with a gun prominently displayed,” Hayes continued, adding “The Irish Republican Army would display guns in its propaganda posters and its murals. Cuban revolutionaries, they posed with guns all the time, too.”

Hayes stated that “A movement or faction that puts images of guns, the celebration of guns front and center in its political aesthetic, is a movement who’s engaging in something other than what we might call the normal rhetoric of elected democratic politics.”

“You can’t escape the meaning of it. It communicates that they’re committed to, or at the very least open to the possibility of violent overthrow of the government or the existing order,” Hayes frothed, adding that “in the Republican Party, it seems like it’s becoming common and unremarkable.”

The context of Boebert’s display is obvious given that she has positioned herself as a defender of gun rights.

The Congresswoman has hit out at those who believe they can ‘cherry pick’ rights from the Second Amendment. It is her number one cause.

To suggest that she is promoting violent revolution is not only grossly factually incorrect, but also deliberately and dangerously inflammatory, given that Antifa and various other violent leftist groups were identified as active participants in the Capitol riot in January.

What else can be expected from MSNBC though, other than literally repeating Democrat talking points:

Democrats have been blasted as hypocritical for reinstating the notorious ‘kids in cages’ detention policies at the border that they previously used to attack President Trump.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was questioned Tuesday by Peter Doocy, who asked why Biden administration was reopening one of the very facilities Democrats previously labelled a ‘human rights abuse’.

Psaki argued that “This is not kids being kept in cages,” and claimed “this is a facility that was reopened that is going to follow the same standards as other [Department of Health and Human Services] facilities.”

Psaki continued “That’s never our intention – of replicating immigration policies of the past administration. But we are in a circumstance where we are not going to expel unaccompanied minors at the border.”

Psaki also argued that because “there is a pandemic going on,” the holding facilities must be used, rather than the Office of Refugee Resettlement.

In other words, ‘its OK when we do it’.

Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez commented on the development, but only mildly criticised Biden for the exact same thing she previously labelled “concentration camps” and created a staged ‘crying’ photo op over during Trump’s presidency.

As we have previously exposed, the ‘cages’ at the border were instituted by the Obama administration, and have been repeatedly mis-used by Democrats and their supporters to attack Trump, who actually signed an executive order to end the policy of separating kids at the border.

Congressman Matt Gaetz (R-Florida) suggested Thursday that Capitol Police and Democrats are hyping up the bizarre online theories of QAnon as justification for keeping Washington DC under ‘occupation’.

Following a story in Newsweek that highlighted how some QAnon followers believe President Trump is to be ‘reinstalled’ on March 4th, Capitol authorities and Democrats used it as a reason to keep troops and razor wire fences in place.

During a Wednesday hearing, House Armed Services Committee Chairman Adam Smith said “Some of these people have figured out that apparently 75 years ago, the president used to be inaugurated on March 4. OK, now why that’s relevant, God knows, at any rate, now they are thinking maybe we should gather again and storm the Capitol on March 4. … That is circulating online.”

Rep. Gatez responded on Twitter:

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Kentucky) responded to Gaetz, suggesting that ‘swamp’ creatures are using the ‘threat’ of conspiracists to take away freedoms:

The representatives’ comments come days after a leaked email suggested that there are plans to keep the National Guard in DC beyond the previously discussed deadline of March 12th, and throughout the Summer AND Fall.

report by FOX 5 cited an internal email seen by reporters that reveals The National Security Council is asking the Department of Defense to engage Capitol Police on planning for post-March 12th support.

Assistant Secretary of Defense for Homeland Defense and Global Security Robert Salesses said Wednesday that the Capitol Police requested that 4,900 troops remain in DC through March 12.
