Lindsey Graham tears into Democrats over 'sham' Kavanaugh hearing

If you told me a few years ago that I'd be singing the praises of South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, I would have laughed in your face.

Neocon journalist Max Boot-who, like Scarborough, expressed his disdain for the Trump Administration by leaving the Republican Party-had no kind words for either Kavanaugh or Graham in his September 28 column for the Washington Post.

He also called the Democrats' tactics "the most unethical sham". Arroyo asked. "Throw a temper tantrum, you get what you want". "God, I hope you never get it", he said. This phase of it began when some Democrat leaked Ford's name and accusation to the press, forcing her to abandon the anonymity she'd requested and guaranteeing enormous pain for her - all to gum up the confirmation. It contains mildly objectionable language. Graham said. "And their goal, not Ms. Ford's goal, is to delay this past the midterms so they can win the Senate and never allow Trump to fill the seat". She came off as compelling and authentic and you truly believe she went through a traumatic experience.

"I called him after this happened, the allegations came out, said, 'Did you do it?'" Graham recalled.

In testimony earlier Thursday, Blasey Ford said she would welcome an Federal Bureau of Investigation probe into her allegation that a 17-year-old Kavanaugh assaulted her at a house party in 1982, when she was 15. Amy Klobuchar. President Donald Trump nominated Kavanaugh, a D.C. circuit court judge, to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, who has retired.

Is it too much to wonder why Graham was so quick to invoke Cosby - whose well-deserved prison sentence for multiple rapes in no way precludes any crimes Kavanaugh might have committed back in high school or after.

Tariff war continues between the U.S. and China
Beijing cancelled the visit of a Chinese negotiating team expected September 27-28 in Washington , The Wall Street Journal said. China imports far less from the United States, making a dollar-for-dollar match on any new U.S. tariffs impossible.

Graham was responding to Stephanopoulos' playing a video clip showing Democratic Sen.

The FBI is now investigating the sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh.

Whatever Schumer chooses, the polls are tightening in several red states, and whether he likes it or not, the vote on Kavanaugh could become a major rallying cry for the GOP opponents who will castigate their Democratic counterparts for serving the interests of liberal elites rather than serving their constituents.

The commander in chief praised his Supreme Court pick, calling Kavanaugh "one of accomplished most legal minds of our time a juris with a sterling record of public service".

"That's illegal, inappropriate", Graham, one of Kavanaugh's biggest allies in the Senate, said Sunday on ABC's "This Week".

Nevertheless, she added, "I don't expect Judge Kavanaugh or Jake Tapper or Jeff Flake or anybody to be held responsible for that".
