Senator Lindsey Graham, D-S.C., hammered Democratic Senators for pulling “the most unethical sham” against U.S. Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Earlier in the day, Professor Christine Blasey Ford offered her own emotional testimony, though offered nothing to corroborate the allegation.
Judge Kavanaugh put on a fact-filled and passionate defense against sexual assault allegations leveled against him on the eve of a confirmation vote.
“If you wanted an FBI investigation you could’ve come to us,” Senator Graham turned and shouted at his Democratic colleagues. “What you want to do is destroy this guy’s life, hold this seat open, and hope you win in 2020. You’ve said that. Not me.”
“You’ve got nothing to apologize for,” he said turning to the nominee.
“This is the most unethical sham since I’ve been in politics.”
Senator Graham also established that Senator Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., the Ranking Member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, met with Judge Kavanaugh at the time she was withholding a letter by Professor Ford making the allegation. Professor Ford testified that the letter was leaked to the media without her consent.
