Sen. Lindsey Graham Lindsey Olin Graham Overnight Defense & National Security — Milley becomes lightning rod Joint Chiefs Chairman Milley becomes lightning rod on right GOP senators unveil bill designating Taliban as terrorist organization MORE (R-SC) said he expects to see law enforcement take a zero-tolerance approach in response to any violent behavior during a right-wing rally slated for Washington, D.C., this weekend.
The rally, in support of rioters arrested in connection with the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, is scheduled for Saturday afternoon and is expected to draw hundreds of people to the nation’s capital.
"They need to take a firm line, buddy," Graham told The New York Times of the local police presence at the event. "If anybody gets out of line, they need to whack ’em."
The Department of Homeland Security reportedly expects about 700 people to attend the weekend rally, and crews began constructing security fencing and barriers around the Capitol complex in anticipation of the large crowd’s arrival.
Local police departments and federal officials say they remain on high alert ahead of the event, dubbed “Justice for J6,” which some Republican lawmakers have either not acknowledged or downplayed.
"I don't expect a lot of people there," Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-Ala.) told the Times. "I haven't heard anything about it. I will not be there."
The rally comes as some Republican leaders work to move on from the violent events of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.
"Republicans want the midterms to be a referendum on Biden," GOP strategist Alex Conant told The Hill this week . "The Democrats will want it to be about Donald Trump Donald Trump Former Sen. Heller to run for Nevada governor Overnight Defense & National Security — Milley becomes lightning rod Joint Chiefs Chairman Milley becomes lightning rod on right MORE . It's clear that every Democrat is going to do what Newsom did in California and try to make their own reelection about the former president."

“The president needs to understand that his actions were the problem, not the solution,” Graham said at the time. “The rally yesterday was unseemly, it got out of hand.”
