Graham on Kavanaugh Allegations: ‘Everything They’re Saying About Him is Made Up’

On Thursday, Christine Blasey Ford detailed to the Senate Judiciary Committee her sexual assault allegation against Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

Responding to her testimony,  Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) dismissed the claims, accusing the left of a political stunt.

Speaking to Fox News’ Sean Hannity the evening after hearing from both parties, the Graham argued that “if you’re the way they say Brett is, you wouldn’t have the life Brett has lived.”

He continued on: “He found out about it after the hearing was over, they knew about it, they sat on it, there is no corroboration, and the [Michael] Avenatti thing tells you all you need to know about where they’re headed with him…If we delay this, there will be more coming and he doesn’t deserve it. It is time to vote.”

Without any hard evidence to support his assertion, Graham then contended that “everything they’re saying about him is made up and it comes out of the left field and it’s not corroborated.”

Ford, who presented her testimony before Kavanaugh’s, recalled the traumatic incident, much of which she was able to recount in depth.

Yet Graham maintained the judge “is qualified and capable,” begging his colleagues, “Please don’t take away everything he has done.”

“He’s number one in his class, ever since he’s done anything,” the senator said, referring back to Kavanaugh’s schooling.

Shortly after Kavanaugh’s testimony concluded, the committee set a meeting for Friday morning with the possibility of the Senate reaching a final vote on his confirmation by early next week.
