WASHINGTON — Video footage shows GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham being surrounded by an angry mob of Trump supporters as he tried to fly out of Washington, DC, on Friday following his floor speech and vote in favor of affirming the Electoral College results after the deadly US Capitol siege.
Dozens of people mobbed the powerful chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee and accused him of being “a traitor” for refusing to back President Trump’s plot to overturn the election as a security detail escorted him through Reagan National Airport.
“You traitor! You traitor! You’re a traitor! Lindsey Graham, you are a traitor to the country,” screamed conservative activist Mindy Robinson, who shared the video on Twitter.
Graham (R-SC) had been catching a flight at the same time as dozens of Trump supporters who were in town to hear the president speak at a rally outside the White House before many of them split off and stormed the Capitol.
