Senator Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, has called for Russian President Vladimir Putin’s death. Graham made his remarks in a televised interview and in a tweet on Thursday night.

He tweeted: “Is there such a person as Brutus in Russia? Is there a more successful Russian military officer than Colonel Stauffenberg?”

According to the Washington Post, his remarks were in reference to the Roman politician who assisted in the assassination of Julius Caesar and the German military commander who attempted to assassinate Adolf Hitler.

Graham said in his tweet: “The only way this can be resolved is for someone in Russia to assassinate this individual. You would be doing your country — and the rest of the world – a big favor.”

His remarks were remarkably identical to those he made during a Fox News interview with Sean Hannity on Thursday.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, a Republican, slammed Graham’s statements. He tweeted: “This is a very awful idea. Use enormous economic sanctions, boycott Russian oil and gas, and send military help to Ukraine so that it can defend itself.”

“However, we should not advocate for the killing of leaders of state.” Meanwhile, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., tweeted: “While we are all praying for peace and for the people of Ukraine, this is reckless, dangerous, and insane.”

“We require leaders with cool heads and steady knowledge. Not bloodthirsty warmongering politicians tweeting threats of assassination. Americans are opposed to war.”

Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., tweeted in response to Graham’s statements, “Seriously, wtf?”

Earlier on Thursday, Graham stated that Russia has “no rule of law” that will hold Putin accountable for the violations and war crimes committed during his bombardment of Ukraine, and that the International Criminal Court and the rest of the world must take action against him and the military commanders who are carrying out his war.
