“What have we learned the last few days?” as the latest New York Times article accusing Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh has been increasing discredited, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) asked, and answered, Monday.

The Times has stopped verifying stories, the presumption of innocence has been lost, and Democrats don’t care who they hurt, as long it helps them they get their way, Sen. Graham wrote in a Twitter post:

What have we learned the last few days?

* The @nytimes writes first, verifies later.

* Republicans are presumed to be “guilty.”

* Democratic presidential candidates are willing to ruin Justice Kavanaugh’s life for political gain.

All very sad.

By continuing to use a debunked story to call for Kavanaugh’s impeachment, Democrats are going “beyond the pale,” Graham said in a subsequent post on Monday:

“The latest attacks leveled against Brett Kavanaugh are beyond the pale,” Graham wrote in another tweet. “My heart goes out to Justice Kavanaugh’s family for being forced to endure this ridiculous treatment once again.”

“They continue to try to destroy Judge Kavanaugh’s life. ...It’s going to backfire, blow up in their face I hope,” Sen. Graham tweeted on Tuesday, embedding video of remarks he made to Fox News.
