Sen. Graham slams Democrats defended Kavanaugh
Senator Lindsey Graham, R-S. C., accuses the Democrats of an “unethical sham,” says Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has nothing to apologize for, calls for fellow Republicans to vote to confirm Kavanaugh.
To let Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S. C., loose to explore on his Democratic colleagues Thursday about what he was hearing as a “sham” to sexual assault allegations against Brett Kavanaugh, in a display that earned him praise from the White house and scorn from the left side.
Graham blasted Democrats towards the end of the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in front of the Supreme Court nominee and Prosecutor Christine Blasey Ford. She claims, Kavanaugh forced himself on her when both were high school students in the 1980s.
But Graham alleged Democrats’ treatment was all about politics.
“This is the immoral hypocrisy, since I have been in politics,” a visibily angry Graham said from the dais on the democratic senators. “And if you really wanted to know the truth, you wouldn’t have sure as hell done, what you have done to this guy.”

Graham added: “man, y’ all want power, and I hope you don’t get it.”
Graham personally addressed Kavanaugh, to apologize for questioning his high school Yearbook, comments and his beer drinking habits.
“If you said to in search of a fair process, you came to the wrong town at the wrong time,” Graham. “This is hell.”
Democratic senators were to Kavanaugh the Yearbook as you ask him about Ford’s accusation of sexual assault when they were teenagers. Kavanaugh denies the charge.
The senior senator from South Carolina, had not even Kavanaugh pointed words for every Republican senator who is considering, to confirm the vote.
“My Republican colleagues,” Graham said. “If you don’t vote, you legitimise the user what is most despicable I’ve ever seen in my time in politics.”
Graham’s words quickly drew praise from the White house officials, with President Trump’s Advisor, Kelly Anne Conway, the legislator praised for the “sore the outrageous and unfair treatment” of Kavanaugh.
