Sen. Lindsey Graham got really, really mad at the Kavanaugh hearing

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham defended Judge Brett Kavanaugh against some Democrats' criticism that his Senate testimony last week shows he lacks a judicial temperament.

Kavanaugh and another of his accusers, Christine Blasey Ford, who says Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when both were teenagers, testified publicly before the Judiciary Committee on Thursday.

Graham, speaking about his "yes" votes for Supreme Court Justices Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor, made clear he would "never do to them what you have done to this guy", rebuking the Democrats of their treatment of Kavanaugh.

"I'm going to make sure that, when this debacle's over, that we look at what happened to deter it in the future", said Sen.

Kavanaugh on Thursday again forcefully denied the allegations and called his confirmation process a "national disgrace".

Kavanaugh's nomination and the sexual abuse allegations of Ford and two other women (Deborah Ramirez and attorney Michael Avenatti's client, Julie Swetnick) have underscored the bitter partisan divide in the US, with most Republicans and supporters of President Donald Trump rallying around Kavanaugh despite those allegations and most Democrats opposing the nomination.

"She probably leaked it but who am I to say?" "It is just rank with politics". It's 36 years old. His most fiery defense came from Lindsey Graham. Why Dr. Ford didn't know we were willing to come to California.

"I hope you're on the Supreme Court".

But Senate Democrats argue one week may not be enough time, with some saying they're concerned that the White House may be dictating the terms of the investigation.

Weeks after President Donald Trump announced Kavanaugh's nomination, Ford wrote Feinstein an anonymous letter outlining her allegations.

Yes, we understand that people of good will are glad that Federal Bureau of Investigation agents will actually interview Kavanaugh's high-school pal Mark Judge and other potential witnesses named by Christine Blasey Ford (as well as, it seems, by his Yale accuser).

On Friday, Trump, under pressure from key Republican senators, ordered the FBI to conduct an additional background investigation of Kavanaugh, who faces several sexual misconduct allegations.

Nevertheless, she added, "I don't expect Judge Kavanaugh or Jake Tapper or Jeff Flake or anybody to be held responsible for that. She has been victimized by Democrats...on a search-and-destroy mission for Brett Kavanaugh", Cotton said, according to Politico. I've known him for 20 years.
