Graham tells Kavanaugh 'you've got nothing to apologize for'

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

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

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) is animated in comments Thursday during a hearing with Judge Brett Kavanaugh in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill.

Kavanaugh's high school friend Mark Judge, who Ford says was in the room when a drunken Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her, said that he will cooperate with any law enforcement agency that will "confidentially investigate" sexual misconduct allegations against him and Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh denied the allegation.

Stephanopoulos said, "It appears that the Federal Bureau of Investigation will not be questioning those college witnesses who contradict Brett Kavanaugh's testimony about his drinking ..."

Mr. Graham said the way Democrats have deployed Ms. Blasey Ford's accusations made her as much a victim as Judge Kavanaugh.

He further asked if Kavanaugh knew that Sen.

"I am now more convinced than ever that he didn't do it".

REPUBLICAN SEN. CHUCK GRASSLEY, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, contended Friday that the sum of statements by the three witnesses "refutes Dr. Ford's version of the facts".

Graham said Kavanaugh has already had six Federal Bureau of Investigation background checks, proving he is not a "stumbling, bumbling drunk" and says there is no reason to talk to his former classmates about drinking. "I would never do to them what you've done to this guy".

"To my Republican colleagues: 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".

As Kavanaugh sat in front of the panel of Democrats and Republicans, Graham explained just how ashamed he was to be part of the entire process.

"I don't want to reward that kind of behavior", he said of Democrats.

"I hope you're on the Supreme Court", he added, "That's exactly where you belong".

"God helps us all as Republicans", Graham said to reporters. Jeff Flake for an FBI investigation into Brett Kavanaugh, despite voting to send his nomination to the Supreme Court to the full Senate.

"They don't reach conclusions, you reach conclusions", Kavanaugh said, adding that what the Federal Bureau of Investigation would essentially do was "ask question and type out the report".
