Graham Weighs in on Judge Kavanaugh on Hannity Show

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) joined Sean Hannity to discuss Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court. 

  • GRAHAM: “If Ms. Ford really did not want to come forward, never intended to come forward, never planned to come forward, why did she pay for a polygraph [test] in August? And why did she hire a lawyer in August if she never intended to do what she’s doing?”
  • GRAHAM: “It’s a [35] year old allegation. It’s a serious allegation. Everybody needs to be heard, but also people need to be able to defend themselves. I’m going to look at what [Ms. Ford] said about Brett Kavanaugh in high school and compare that to everything else I know about Brett Kavanaugh, including his denial. And I’ll make a decision.”
  • GRAHAM: “All I can say is that I’ve been a prosecutor, a judge and a defense counsel all of my life before I got into politics. This case could not go before a criminal court because it’s too old. No lawyer would bring it as a civil suit because it’s just too hard to prove. The question for the Senate, is there really enough evidence here given the nature of the allegation, how old it is, and the uncertain nature of it, to deny this man who’s lived an incredible life, a promotion to the Supreme Court? And if it was this bad, why did the [Democrats not] challenge Judge Kavanaugh when he was sitting right there in front of them?”
