Lindsey Graham is on the warpath to get Kavanaugh confirmed

Kavanaugh hearing runs red hot with partisan anger Kansas Sen. Roberts lashes out at Democrats over Kavanaugh hearing

"What you want to do is destroy this guy's life, hold this seat open and hope you win in 2020", Graham said with his voice shaking, pointing at Democratic lawmakers.

Graham said a vote against Kavanaugh would "legitimize the most despicable thing I have ever seen in politics".

Brett Kavanaugh came out swinging against Democrats in a remarkable opening statement during Thursday's historic Senate hearing. And the people you tell me were at the party, they say it didn't happen.

Earlier in the day, Graham compared the judge's treatment to Ford's experience, the woman who came forward to accuse him of sexual assault.

As Kavanaugh sat in front of the panel of Democrats and Republicans, Graham explained just how ashamed he was to be part of the entire process.

"But let me tell my Democratic friends: If this is the new norm, you'd better watch out for your nominees", Graham added.

In testimony earlier Thursday, Blasey Ford said she would welcome an Federal Bureau of Investigation probe into her allegation that a 17-year-old Kavanaugh assaulted her at a house party in 1982, when she was 15. "This is hell", Graham said.

"I've been through hell and then some", the judge responded. He also assured Kavanaugh, "You've got nothing to apologize for".

"If that complaint is taken to a court and he is convicted, I will be the first one to say we need to look at Judge Kavanaugh", Mr. God, I hope you never get it.

"Boy, you all want power".

According to The Daily Beast, "incel forums lit up with discussion of the Supreme Court nominee, with one user saying they now saw Kavanaugh as one of them". Now Kavanaigh's turn and the GOP is praising him, telling him to keep fighting, and that they'll vote for him.

Several women in the audience stood up when Ford finished testifying after more than four hours and said loudly, "Thank you, Dr. Ford!" I would never do to them what you've done to this guy. I doubt you could even find many members of Hillary Clinton's resistance shameless enough to claim otherwise. "I know I'm a single white male from SC and I've been told to shut up, but I will not shut up", he said on Friday.
