A Washington Post report says Republican Senator Lindsey Graham ordered Capitol police to shoot President Trump supporters during the protest on January 6, 2021 at the U.S. Capitol building.

Air Force Veteran/Protestor Ashli Babbitt was shot and killed by Capitol police on that day.

Is Senator Graham's potential involvement in the death of Ms. Babbitt, something the ongoing Jan 6th Congressional witch-hunting committee would care about?
In the source material you gave where does it say he told the police to shoot them ? Specifically this source you linked: www.mediaite.com... son-use-them/
Understanding you are just echoing the poor wording used in the article....
The answer is it doesn't and this is just another opinion piece where you have given your perception or interpretation of something. You obvious care about your political affiliation so hopefully someday you will actually stop giving opinion pieces and just stick to facts and reality. On a daily basis the current POTUS should give you more than enough fact to make your point.
Anyway, saying "you have guns use them" is not the same as " you have guns shoot them" . Guns can be and are often a deterrent without ever needing to shoot them.
Here is the exact section in question and again, where does it say to shoot protestors?
"The Senate and House leaders also had been evacuated by Capitol Police and taken to an undisclosed location, but many lawmakers remained in their chambers for a few minutes before they were led to safety in the Hart Senate Office Building. Sen. Lindsey O. Graham was irate that senators were forced to flee their own chamber. He yelled at the Senate sergeant-at-arms. “What are you doing? Take back the Senate! You’ve got guns. Use them.” The South Carolina senator was adamant. “We give you guns for a reason,” he repeated. “Use them.”"
