Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., let loose on his Democratic colleagues Thursday over what he called the “sham” hearing to probe sexual assault allegations against Brett Kavanaugh, in a display that earned him praise from the White House and scorn from the left, FOX News reports.
Graham blasted Democrats toward the end of the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing with the Supreme Court nominee and accuser Christine Blasey Ford. She alleges Kavanaugh forced himself on her when both were high school students in the 1980s.
But Graham alleged the Democrats’ handling was all about politics.
“This is the most unethical sham since I’ve been in politics,” a visibily angry Graham said from the dais while pointing at Democratic senators. “And if you really wanted to know the truth, you sure as hell wouldn’t have done what you’ve done to this guy.”

HELL YEAH! IT’S ABOUT TIME A REPUBLICAN SLAMMED THESE FILTHY DEMS!
The senior senator from South Carolina also had pointed words for any Republican senator who is considering not voting to confirm Kavanaugh.
“To my Republican colleagues,” Graham said. “If you vote no, you are legitimizing the most despicable thing I’ve ever seen in my time in politics.”
Graham’s words drew quick praise from White House officials, with President Trump’s counselor Kellyanne Conway praising the lawmaker for “excoriating the outrageous and unfair treatment” of Kavanaugh.
Press Secretary Sarah Sanders also tweeted her support for Graham’s words.
“[Lindsey Graham] has more decency and courage than every Democrat member of the committee combined,” Sanders tweeted. “God bless him.”
