SEPTEMBER 28, 2018

     Lindsey Graham accused the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee and her colleagues for putting on an ?unethical sham? during the Supreme Court confirmation hearing Thursday. The South Carolina Republican said Sen. Dianne Feinstein, California Democrat, had already referred Christine Blasey Ford to an attorney when she met privately with Brett Kavanaugh more than a month ago as part of the confirmation process. Ms. Feinstein did not ask the judge about the alleged incident then or during his hearings earlier this month.  Mr. Graham suggested Democrats delayed the timeline in hopes to hold the Supreme Court seat open ahead of the midterms.

     President Trump and his aides spent much of Thursday glued to the TV watching Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh and accuser Christine Blasey Ford testify in a stormy Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, with the president believing the nominee survived the decades-old allegations of sexual misconduct and binge drinking.

     An angry, defiant and openly emotional Brett Kavanaugh facing the job interview of a lifetime for a seat on the Supreme Court on Thursday blamed 11th-hour accusations of sexual assault on "a calculated and orchestrated political hit, fueled with apparent pent-up anger about President Trump and the 2016 election." In a lengthy and dramatic opening statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee and in response to follow-up questions from disbelieving Democrats, the 53-year-old federal appeals court judge forcefully denied Christine Blasey Ford's claim that he attacked her  as a 17-year-old in the summer of 1982, before his senior year in high school.

     Kavanaugh will win the committee vote and than win his deserving seat on the Supreme Court.
