Lindsey Graham: I will be in the National Basketball Association before Kavanaugh is convicted

This image released by the Senate Judiciary Committee Wednesday Sept. 26 2018 in Washington shows Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh's calendar from the Summer of 1982

Alabama Sen. Doug Jones, a moderate Democrat, said late Thursday that he was voting "no" and was concerned about the message the vote would send to the nation's sons and daughters.

The South Carolina senator is saying Democrats are working to "destroy" Kavanaugh's life and hold the seat open in hopes that a Democrat wins the White House in 2020.

Kavanaugh's nomination and the sexual abuse allegations of Ford and two other women (Deborah Ramirez and attorney Michael Avenatti's client, Julie Swetnick) have underscored the bitter partisan divide in the US, with most Republicans and supporters of President Donald Trump rallying around Kavanaugh despite those allegations and most Democrats opposing the nomination.

During his testimony, a combative, emotional and overwrought Kavanaugh angrily pointed the finger at Democrats specifically-declaring that he was being persecuted as an act of "revenge on behalf of the Clintons". Kavanaugh responded, "I've been through hell and then some". I hope the American people can see through this sham.

During Thursday's hearing, senators have had the option to hand off their questioning to Rachel Mitchell, a career prosecutor with decades of experience prosecuting sex crimes. "But having said that, this is called democracy".

It is believed by many who knew this remarkable lady closely that she allowed her "Showman Husband" to take her for granted. Amjad Ali Khan: Deepest condolences to the respected Kapoor family on the sad demise of the gracious Krishna Raj Kapoorji.

Speaking to reporters during a break in the hearing, Graham said that he "had enough of this charade".

Graham shook his head and said to Kavanaugh, "I can not imagine what you and your family have gone through". "God bless him", Sanders tweeted. "She is as much a victim as you are".

"They have betrayed her". Democrats and Republicans - and Kavanaugh himself - sparred over explosive allegations that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted an acquaintance while both were teenagers.

Graham blasted Democrats toward the end of the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing with the Supreme Court nominee and accuser Christine Blasey Ford. The senator has said she didn't take it to her colleagues because of Ford's request for confidentiality.

President Donald Trump has already successfully nominated Neil Gorsuch for the vacancy created by the death of Antonin Scalia with his predecessor Mr Obama unable to install his choice. "You've said that, not me". Kirsten Gillibrand of NY called the hearing fundamentally "unfair" to Christine Blasey Ford, a California professor who says Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when both were in high school.

Matt Damon plays Brett Kavanaugh on ‘SNL’ season premiere
He blasts the "con job" orchestrated by people like the Clintons, Kathy Griffin, "Mr. Ronan Sinatra" and even "Ayssa frigging Milano".

In his five-minute speech to Kavanaugh, Graham called the accusations against the nominee "a sham" put on by the Democratic Party.

Ms. Feinstein came under fierce scrutiny for her handling of the allegations against Judge Kavanaugh.

On Friday, Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., also on the panel, voted to advance Kavanaugh's nomination to the full Senate with a one-week delay to allow a FBI investigation of the accusations against him.

"The FBI is going to tell us what?" If you think they need a lawyer, why didn't you tell the committee about it? What city are they going to go to? "Because this happens to us; it never happens to them".
