Senator Graham stepped up in a big way today. After listening to both testimonies he said what needed to be said. The Democrats had made a sham of the system. He went further to reveal that the Democrats had made no secret of their intentions. They shamelessly expressed their wishes to stop Kavanaugh no matter what it took. They tried their best to stall his appointment and slandered his good name in the process.
Graham enlightened Kavanaugh and the public during his allotted time.
“Are you aware that at 9:23 on the night of July the 9th, the day you were nominated to the Supreme Court by President Trump, Senator Schumer said, 23 minutes after your nomination, ‘I’ll oppose Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination with everything I have. I hope a bipartisan majority will do that same,'” Graham asked.
“I did not know that,” Kavanaugh replied.
“If you wanted an FBI investigation, you could have come to us,” Graham declared in the direction of the Democrats. “What you want to do is destroy this guy’s life, hold this seat open, and hope you win in 2020. You’ve said that, not me.”
“When you see [Supreme Court Justices] Sotomayor and Kagan, say hello because I voted for them. I’d never do to them what you’ve done to this guy. This is the most unethical sham since I’ve been in politics and if you really wanted to know the truth, you sure as hell wouldn’t have done what you’ve done to this guy.”
“Are you a gang rapist?” he asked Kavanaugh. The judge responded, “No.”
“I cannot imagine what you and your family have gone through,” Graham stated. “Boy, you all want power,” he said to the Democrat Senators. “God, I hope you never get it. I hope the American people can see through this sham, that you knew about it and you held it.”
“You had no intention of protecting Dr. Ford. None. She’s as much of a victim as you are,” he said, turning back to the nominee.
“God, I hate to say it because these have been my friends, but let me tell you, when it comes to this, if you’re looking for a fair process, you came to the wrong town at the wrong time, my friend.”
“Do you consider this a job interview?” Graham asked Kavanaugh.
The judge pulled out the formal answer, “I’ve been through a process of advice and consent under the Constitution…”
Graham interrupted, “Would you say you’ve been through hell?”
“I’ve been through hell and then some,” the judge said.
“This is not a job interview. This is hell.”
“This is going to destroy the ability of good people to come forward because of this crap,” Graham told the Committee. “You have interacted with professional women all your life, not one accusation. You’re supposed to be Bill Cosby when you’re a junior and senior in high school. And all of a sudden you got over it.”
“It’s been my understanding that if you drug women and rape them for two years in high school, you probably don’t stop,” Graham explained.
Graham then pulled out a letter from the American Bar Association that gave Kavanaugh numerous praises. But the Senator was not done and commended Kavanaugh’s wife Ashley. “Ashley, you should be proud of this, that you raised a daughter who had the good character to pray for Dr. Ford.”
“To my Republican colleagues, if you vote no, you’re legitimizing the most despicable thing I have seen in my time in politics,” Graham stated. To the Democrats: “You want this seat, I hope you never get it.”
Graham then finished his allotted time with this closing statement: “I hope you’re on the Supreme Court. That’s exactly where you should be. And I hope the American people will see through this charade. And I wish you well. I intend to vote for you, and I hope everybody who’s fair-minded will.”

Now that is how you handle this kind of situation. Graham took off the kiddie gloves and made great use of his time. He called out some shady Democrats and their gross attempt to stop Kavanaugh appointment. And made it clear that he was sick of the Democrats BS and their attempt to assassinate Kavanaugh’s character.
