Lindsey Graham Vows "Full-Scale Investigation" Into Democrats' Handling Of Christine Ford's Allegations

Graham continued, referring to Sen.

"I don't want to reward that kind of behavior", he said of Democrats.

"God help anybody else that gets nominated", Graham said. I hope the American people can see through this sham.

Ms. Feinstein came under fierce scrutiny for her handling of the allegations against Judge Kavanaugh. It contains mildly objectionable language.

Senator Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. accuses Democrats of an 'unethical sham, ' says Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has nothing to apologize for, urges fellow Republicans to vote to confirm Kavanaugh.

Graham expressed sympathy for the Supreme Court nominee and his family, saying, "I can not imagine what you and your family have gone through".

"I'm a 76-year-old woman who was sexually molested in the 2nd grade; this brings back so much pain", one survivor told C-SPAN's, Steve Scully.

At Kavanaugh's hearing Thursday afternoon, Graham, like every other senator on the Senate Judiciary Committee, had a five-minute window to ask Kavanaugh questions.

At times, they implored Kavanaugh himself to call on White House counsel Don McGahn to urge President Donald Trump to instruct the FBI to initiate an investigation. "And if you really wanted to know the truth, you sure as hell wouldn't have done what you done to this guy". "Now I am not saying that this is the same situation, because I don't think Dr. Ford is lying".

Kavanaugh has strongly and categorically denied that he has ever committed sexual assault or sexual misconduct.

McCaskill attempted to stay out of the fray when asked about Kavanaugh by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch over the weekend, dismissing assertions from other Democrats that the judge didn't show the temperament needed for a spot on the nation's top court when he responded to the accusations against him during testimony last week.

"But let me tell my Democratic friends: If this is the new norm, you'd better watch out for your nominees", Graham added.

It also gives cover to red state Democrats like Sens.

House Democrats warn that if Kavanaugh is confirmed, they could investigate him themselves if they manage to take control of the House of Representatives in November.

Kavanaugh and Graham were both following the Trumpian model: When in doubt, deny, rage, downplay and then attack your accusers as partisan plants.

The commander in chief praised his Supreme Court pick, calling Kavanaugh "one of accomplished most legal minds of our time a juris with a sterling record of public service".

Graham personally addressed Kavanaugh to apologize for the questioning of his high school yearbook comments and his beer drinking habits.
