WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) was a guest this morning on Fox News Channel to discuss the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.
- GRAHAM: “I think [Minority Leader] Senator Schumer has been consistently inconsistent… All I’m asking is that Judge Gorsuch be treated like we treated [Justices] Sotomayor and Kagan. Neither one of them had a cloture vote. The Republicans did not filibuster… All I’m asking Democrats is to do for President Trump what I and others did for President Obama, then all of this will work out.” https://youtu.be/zU7jKv8Peeo?t=3m10s
- GRAHAM on a Democrat opposition: “This is not anything other than Democrat politics running wild.” https://youtu.be/zU7jKv8Peeo?t=4m6s
- GRAHAM: “This is one of the finest men [Gorsuch] to ever serve on the bench in the history of this country. What they are saying about him upsets me. Nancy Pelosi said ‘If you breathe air and drink water this man is against you.’ I’ve pushed back when President Trump said things inappropriately about judges, but not one Democrat has pushed back against this garbage coming against Judge Gorsuch.” https://youtu.be/zU7jKv8Peeo?t=5m42s
