WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made his opening statement on the first day of Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court hearing.
- GRAHAM: “The [Democrats’] whole argument is you can be a conservative Republican president, but you have to nominate a liberal to be fair to the country. That’s absurd.” https://youtu.be/qe-79YXAefY?t=45s
- GRAHAM on the Democrats’ false outrage: “This is shaping up to be the hypocrisy hearing.” https://youtu.be/qe-79YXAefY?t=1m5s
- GRAHAM: “The antidote to our problems in this country when it comes to judges and politics is not to deny you [Kavanaugh] a place on the Supreme Court. This is exactly where you need to be. This is exactly the time you need to be there.” https://youtu.be/qe-79YXAefY?t=9m43s
- GRAHAM: “To my friends on the other side, you can’t lose the election and pick judges. If you want to pick judges, you better win.” https://youtu.be/qe-79YXAefY?t=10m22s
