  • Lindsey Graham tears into Democrats over 'sham' Kavanaugh hearing

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham says the Democrats' treatment of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is the "most despicable thing" he has seen in politics.

"If you wanted an FBI investigation you coulda come to us", Graham said, after Democrats on the committee have called for an FBI investigation into Ford's claims. "(Democrats have) said publicly they want to delay this and get the majority back and hold a seat open".

Graham, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which questioned both Ford and Kavanaugh, had earlier mounted a furious attack on Senate Democrats during the hearing.

Brett Kavanaugh refused to endorse halting his nomination review so the FBI can investigate allegations.

"When you see [Supreme Court Justices] Sotomayor and Kagan, say hello because I voted for them". I would never do to them what you've done to this guy.

I felt that it was important to go down to the Senate to bear witness, to the best of my ability, to this momentous day.

Carrie Moores protests against Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court in front of Sen.

"If you can ignore everything in this record, looking at an allegation that's 35 years old, that's uncertain in time, place, date, and no corroboration, if that's enough for you, God help us all as Republicans".

"I hope you're on the Supreme Court", Graham told Kavanaugh. Of course, the Senate Democrats spent nearly all their time praising Dr. Ford for her courage. "I will vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh as Justice Kavanaugh". "You have interacted with professional women all your life, not one accusation".

"What Jeff is saying makes sense to me", Graham said, suggesting that if an investigation quiets Democrats' concerns, that works for him. And Graham not only pointed that out, he described the evil the Democrats were inflicting on Judge Kavanaugh, his wife, and his children with such passionate and honest outrage that, I confess, he brought me to tears. The stakes are simply too high for anything less.' If you weren't aware of it, you are now.
