Democrats Should be 'ASHAMED' of Kavanaugh Hearings

"I know I am a single white male from SC, and I am told I should shut up", Graham said, addressing his colleagues. "This is not a job interview", Graham told him.

He said he's furious about how Democrats dealt with the situation.

After lambasting Ford's allegation as a "case [that] won't be brought in Maryland or anywhere else", Graham called the precedent established by Kavanaugh's confirmation "the end of any concept of the rule of law". He urged Republicans not to cave in. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., and Debra Katz, one of Ford's attorneys who has been involved in Democratic politics in the past.

Enter Graham, who said that if Democrats truly wanted an FBI investigation, they could have spoken up when Democratic Sen.

Meacham characterized the events at the hearing as the victory of "a fundamental, instinctive impulse to believe that which you wish to believe because your fellow tribesmen believe it over a fairly American openness to search for the truth". "The one thing I can tell you should be proud of - Ashley, you should be proud of this - that you raised a daughter who had the good character to pray for Dr. Ford".

The comments come just after Bolton assured the world that America is not actively seeking regime change in Iran . Trump said the isolation could be achieved by denying Tehran funds to continue sponsoring terrorism.

Cotton also noted they are investigating Ford's lawyers, who failed to tell their client that the Senate Judiciary Committee offered to meet her in California for a private testimony, so she wouldn't have to face her fear of flying and board a plane to Washington. "Dr. Ford, I don't know what happened, but I know this: Brett denied it vigorously and everybody she names couldn't verify it, it's 36 years old". The Senate Judiciary Committee has said the probe should be limited to "current credible allegations" against Kavanaugh and be finished by next Friday. But even when it comes to something as serious as alleged sexual assault, Graham insists that independent thought on the part of Flake, Collins or Murkowski can not be tolerated.

He accused Democrats further of trying to use the allegations against Kavanaugh to delay the confirmation process and ultimately prevent President Donald Trump from getting Kavanaugh on the court.

He found it in Republican Sen. Kennedy appeared more open than his colleague from SC. Asked before the hearing whether Kavanaugh deserved a presumption of innocence, Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer, D-N.Y., said, "There's no presumption of innocence or guilt when you have a nominee before you".

"I feel very empathetic, frankly, for victims of sexual harassment and rape", she said.
