#Kavanaugh: Graham Emerges Heroic

Posted on | September 27, 2018 | 1 Comment


Sen. Lindsey Graham is one of the Republicans I’ve hated most over the years, because of his pro-amnesty stance on immigration. Most other conservatives feel the same way. But today? He was absolutely a hero.

“This is the most unethical sham since I’ve been in politics,” Graham said, and pointed the finger quite obviously at Dianne Feinstein. “If you really wanted the truth, you really wouldn’t have done what you’ve done to this guy. . . . 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. She’s as much of a victim as you are. God, I hate to say it, cause these have been my friends, but let me tell ya when it comes to this, you’re looking for a fair process? You came to the wrong town at the wrong time, my friend. This is going to destroy the ability of good people to come forward because of this crap!”


Feinstein held onto Christine Blasey Ford’s accusation for six weeks, waited until after Judge Kavanaugh had sat through more than 30 hours of testimony to the Judicial Committee, and then went public with this charge from circa 1982, which has been denied by everyone Professor Ford claimed could have verified it, and which does not comport with any known facts. Then, in today’s hearings, Democrats had the effrontery to demand an FBI investigation which could have been inaugurated in July, if only Feinstein had asked for it. However, Feinstein would not share Ford’s accusation with Republican members of the committee. Why? Because she obviously viewed it as a “hole card” she could play late in the game, as part of a calculated strategy to delay Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation. Feinstein should be ashamed, and every Democrat who has cooperated with Feinstein’s unethical behavior should be ashamed.

Thank you, Sen. Graham, for courageously speaking the truth. I hereby take back half of the bad things I’ve said about you.

UPDATE: Great headline from Ace:

MANSPLAINED! Graham Runs a Train on Senate Democrats

After the hearing ended, I spoke to a source on Capitol Hill who told me that there should be an ethics investigation of Feinstein’s handling of the Ford letter.
