WASHINGTON – U.S. Senators Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) and Tim Scott (R-South Carolina) spoke with Sean Hannity on Fox News about police reform legislation that was blocked by Senate Democrats.
- GRAHAM: “What have I learned about Tim Scott? He speaks from the heart, he can’t be intimidated, and he’s trying to solve a problem. He’s experienced things I have not experienced because I’m white. I’m from South Carolina, Tim’s from South Carolina, and Tim took to the floor of the United States Senate today to make it better particularly for young black men and Chuck Schumer basically told us to go to hell, we care more about the election than we do working with Senator Scott. Probably a low point in my career, right on par with Kavanaugh.” https://youtu.be/zAIxdgXBdOw?t=199
- SCOTT: “All we needed to complement the President’s executive order was the Democrats to show up and be counted. Just a few Democrats – not 46, just seven Democrats. And we couldn’t get seven people to come to the table and say they’re serious about police reform. Instead, what they’re serious about is using police reform as a campaign issue this November. That is despicable.” https://youtu.be/zAIxdgXBdOw?t=64
- GRAHAM: “[Democrats] will do whatever it takes to get power. If you need to destroy Brett Kavanaugh’s life to keep the seat open, they’ll do it. What I did was help Kavanaugh, a single individual being unfairly accused and being mistreated and having his life turned upside down to make sure [Democrats] could fill the Supreme Court vacancy. What Tim did today is in the face of hatred you cannot believe – I got a lot of things thrown my way during Kavanaugh, it was pretty dicey – nothing compared to what Tim Scott has gone through.” https://youtu.be/zAIxdgXBdOw?t=167
