She alleged Kavanaugh forced her onto a bed, groped her, and tried to remove her clothes while he was heavily intoxicated, all while his friend Mark Judge watched. Note the spin machine-crafted line used by Kavanaugh, Trump and any other Republican you can shake a lie detector result at; "She has been victimized by Democrats. on a search-and-destroy mission for Brett Kavanaugh".

The senator added, "I find it offensive that if somebody defends themselves against wholesale character assassination trying to destroy him and his family, that - the temperament I saw was a man who was innocent, who was rightly offended by being destroyed for a political objective".

Despite the power of Prof Ford's testimony and all the reasons to believe her, there's enough ambiguity (it's not like we have video of the event) that anyone who wants to can persuade themselves that Judge Kavanaugh is the one telling the truth.

"God help anybody else that gets nominated", Graham said.

Mr. Graham said that is how the allegations should be handled. It contains mildly objectionable language.

In his remarks to reporters during the hearing Thursday, Graham said he supported holding a vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation Friday - a vote he said Democrats were trying to "delay" by raising the allegations.

"I hope you're on the Supreme Court".

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham is calling the Democrats' treatment of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh the "most despicable thing" he has seen in politics. During the earlier session with Ms. Blasey Ford, Republicans deferred to a female sex-crimes prosecutor hired specifically to ask questions.

Is it too much to wonder why Graham was so quick to invoke Cosby - whose well-deserved prison sentence for multiple rapes in no way precludes any crimes Kavanaugh might have committed back in high school or after.

Recalling that he voted for Obama nominees Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, the senator told Democrats, "I would never do to them what you've done to this guy". You had no intention to protect Dr. Ford.

In his opening statement and at multiple points prior to, during and since the hearing, Kavanaugh categorically and unequivocally denied ever assaulting Ford or any other woman.

Kavanaugh and Graham were both following the Trumpian model: When in doubt, deny, rage, downplay and then attack your accusers as partisan plants.

Hatch said the hearing was "worse" than the 1991 hearing for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas - which Hatch also participated in and which led to a surge in the number of women elected to Congress the next year. "I hope a bipartisan majority will do that same, '" Graham asked.
