Graham Warns Dems if Kavanaugh Goes Down

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Thursday warned Democrats to “watch out for your nominees” while expressing frustration with the allegations of sexual misconduct that have been levied against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

“Well, let me put it this way to my Republican colleagues: if this becomes the new standard where you have an accusation for weeks, you drop it right before the hearing, you withhold from the committee a chance to do this in a professional timely fashion,” Graham said.

“When they say they’re going to do this is to delay the vote, get the Senate back in 2018 so they can fill the seat, I don’t want to publicly reward that kind of behavior. I think we’ve been very fair,” he continued, referencing Democrats’ hope to win back control of the Senate in this year’s midterm elections.

Graham’s comments came during a break in Thursday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing for Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, a college professor who has accused Kavanaugh of sexual assaulting her when the two were in high school in the early 1980s.
