Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) threw down the gauntlet during the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Thursday during which he raked Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) repeatedly over the coals for her manipulation of the sexual assault allegations against SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Graham called the gross and overt delay tactics “the most unethical sham since I’ve been in politics.” He charged Feinstein with attempting to “destroy” Kavanaugh with no care either for, Christine Ford. “If you wanted an FBI investigation, then you could have come to us. What you wanted to do was destroy this guy’s life, hold this seat open, and hope you win in 2020. You’ve said that,” Graham continued, “not me.” When a Senator like Lindsey Graham gets fiery and unites the right, you know something serious is going on.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) charged in a fiery speech during the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Thursday that the sexual assault allegations, led by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh amount to “the most unethical sham since I’ve been in politics.”
Sen. Graham noted that 23 minutes after President Trump nominated Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said he will oppose Kavanaugh’s nomination “with everything I have” because the “stakes are simply too high.”
The South Carolina Senator knocked ranking member Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) for knowledge of the sexual allegation against Kavanaugh during his meeting with her and the fact that she had already recommended lawyer Debra Katz to Christine Blasey Ford, the woman that now accuses Kavanaugh of assaulting her. Graham blasted Feinstein, saying that she could have come to the Senate Republicans about this accusation well before the Senate Judiciary nomination hearings and, instead, contended that Feinstein wants to “destroy” Kavanaugh’s nomination.
