If you watched last Thursday’s Senate hearings with Prof. Ford and Judge Kavanaugh, you would have seen one very irate and incensed Republican member of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) ripped into Democrats, accusing them on intentionally delaying the confirmation of Kavanaugh along with ruining the reputations of Ford and Kavanaugh for their own political sake.
He had some very good points and questions of which Democrats could not answer or justify.
Over the weekend, Graham announced that he was investigating Democrats on the Senate Judiciary committee for the awful way they have handled the Kavanaugh confirmation.
(Fox News) – Sen. Lindsey Graham promised Sunday he’ll “to get to the bottom of” the FBI investigation into the sexual assault allegations leveled against Judge Brett Kavanaugh and said that his own investigation into how the Democrats have handled the Supreme Court nominee’s confirmation hearings has only just begun.
“I’m going to get to the bottom of it,” Graham, R-S.C., told Maria Bartiromo on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures.”
The longtime South Carolina senator said that, among other things, he wanted to find out how the letter from Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford was leaked to the press, who recommended that she hire her lawyer and what role the Democrats played in bringing these allegations against the judge to light.
“This was about delaying the nomination” Graham added. “This can be played out over time and destroy the ability of good people to come forward.” …
I did watch the entire testimony process last Thursday and thought that Graham was fully justified for his outrage.
He asked a question that was never properly answered, about who leaked Ford’s name to the press.
After Ford had testified that only her Democratic Representative and Sen. Dianne Feinstein knew who she was before the media swarmed her home, Feinstein had the gall to say that Ford must have told someone else.
What makes this so important is that Feinstein ignored this part of Ford’s testimony just to clear herself and her office, from being responsible for leaking Ford’s name.
Many people who watched the hearings believe the leak must have come from Democrats and not Ford.
I hope that Graham can learn the truth and if it was a Democrat or one of their staffers, then that person should face charges.
