'The most unethical sham': Lindsey Graham rails at Kavanaugh FBI probe demands

Sen. Lindsey Graham got really, really mad at the Kavanaugh hearing

"She is as much a victim as you are". She came off as compelling and authentic and you truly believe she went through a traumatic experience. Amy Klobuchar. President Donald Trump nominated Kavanaugh, a D.C. circuit court judge, to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, who has retired.

Blasey had requested confidentiality when she contacted Feinstein's office in July to tell the senator her allegation that Kavanaugh assaulted Blasey when they were in high school ― which Kavanaugh has denied. His critics ripped him for being "angry". "He's accused of being a gang rapist, a bumbling, stumbling drunk, a degenerate person, and he was hit by a truck". Kavanaugh was clearly frustrated and distraught by the smear campaign that was orchestrated by the Democrats.

Partisan tensions are only getting worse after a hearing for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh devolved into a partisan fistfight.

Continuing her streak of playing white southern Republicans, Kate McKinnon put on a suit, a prosthetic turkey neck, and sharpened up her index finger to challenge U.S. Sen. John Kennedy and Lindsey Graham whether the Federal Bureau of Investigation could unearth anything that would lead them to change their minds.

If Graham were serious about "keeping the judiciary sacrosanct", and making sure Supreme Court nominations "are about qualifications and not about anything more", then he abandoned his own principle in 2016, and in the process, forfeited any right to self-righteous fury in 2018.

On Friday, Trump, under pressure from key Republican senators, ordered the FBI to conduct an additional background investigation of Kavanaugh, who faces several sexual misconduct allegations.

"She probably leaked it but who am I to say?"

It's obvious that's what their intention was.

But Senate Democrats argue one week may not be enough time, with some saying they're concerned that the White House may be dictating the terms of the investigation.

"All I can tell you is it came from somebody who had a political motive". "Because this happens to us, but this never happens to them".

"If you vote no, you're legitimizing the most despicable thing I've seen in my time in politics", he said.

His shaming of Democrats continued. "Boy, you all want power", he said to the Democrats. Boy, I hope you never get it. That you knew about it and you held it. Why Dr. Ford didn't know we were willing to come to California. "Not just in high school but also in college, and that when he drank, he would become very belligerent and aggressive".
