enator Lindsey Graham briefly spoke to reporters during a break in the Christine Blasey Ford hearing this afternoon to address whether he finds her credible. Graham defended Brett Kavanaugh‘s character again and said people are trying to “destroy this guy’s life.” He went on to warn Democrats that they’re setting a precedent they may not like:
“If this becomes the new standard, where you have an accusation for weeks, you drop it right before the hearing, you withhold from the committee a chance to do this in a professional timely fashion, when they publicly say that their goal is to delay the vote, get the Senate back in 2018, to make sure he can’t fill the seat––they’re publicly saying that––I don’t want to reward that kind of behavior. I think we’ve been very fair. And to my Republican colleagues, if you can ignore everything in this record, looking at an allegation that’s 35 years old, that’s uncertain in time, place, date, and no corroboration, if that’s enough for you, God help us all as Republicans. Because this happens to us. It never happens to them. But let me tell you, my Democratic friends, if this is the new norm, you better watch out for your nominees.”
