Lindsey Graham defends Kavanaugh in fiery, emotional speech

She was expected to endure it, no matter how degrading, stupid or useless the questions asked of her. "She is as much a victim as you are".

Graham also told Kavanaugh, "You have got nothing to apologize for".

Kavanaugh alternated from anger to tears during fiery testimony. His critics ripped him for being "angry".

"Are you a gang rapist?" he asked Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh was clearly frustrated and distraught by the smear campaign that was orchestrated by the Democrats.

None of that stopped Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, from again criticizing Feinstein, the highest ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, in a Senate floor speech on Monday.

Angrily jabbing his finger towards his Democratic colleagues, Graham urged his camp to close ranks behind Donald Trump's embattled nominee - whose confirmation will hinge on a handful of Republican votes in the Senate. Amid the deluge of reaction on social media, one prominent observation: Ford, as a woman, would have been judged as a far weaker witness had she behaved as Kavanaugh did.

"The FBI will do a supplemental background investigation, then I'm going to call for an investigation of what happened in this committee".

"I know I'm a single white male from SC, and I'm told I should shut up, but I will not shut up, if that's OK".

It's obvious that's what their intention was.

Ms. Feinstein said she respected Ms. Blasey Ford's wish to remain anonymous, which was why she didn't advance the woman's accusations until after Ms. Blasey Ford chose to go public.

"All I can tell you is it came from somebody with a political motive". She said she managed to escape after Judge jumped on them, sending them tumbling and giving her an opportunity to get out of the room. "If you really wanted to know the truth, you sure as hell wouldn't have done what you've done to this guy".

His shaming of Democrats continued.

That's what happens when you lose credibility with your constituents, fellow Democrats, and those across the aisle you have to work with each day. That you knew about it and you held it.

"From the moment I received Dr. Ford's letter my actions have been consistent with her wishes", feinstein wrote. You're supposed to be Bill Cosby when you're a junior and senior in high school. He is very circumspect in his personal conduct, harbors no biases or prejudices.

"But let me tell my Democratic friends: If this is the new norm, you'd better watch out for your nominees", Graham added.

That was a message directed at the wildcards among the GOP; Sens. Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Jeff Flake of Arizona.

Throughout their riveting, nationally televised testimony on Thursday, Christine Blasey Ford and Brett Kavanaugh served as Exhibits A and B for a tutorial on gender roles and stereotypes.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein's deceptions have been catching up to her, and lately the California Democrat's been repeatedly called on them. Joe Manchin and Heidi Heitkamp, and maybe even Joe Donnelly.

The latest polling for Missouri's U.S. Senate race indicates the incumbent's decision to vote against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh hasn't moved the needle even an inch one way or the other.
