“If you wanted an FBI investigation, you could’ve come to us,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told Senate Democrats at Thursday’s hearing grilling of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

“This is the most unethical sham since I've been in politics,” Sen. Graham said, turning his ire on Democrats' attacks on Kavanaugh, calling the personal assaults on Kavanaugh “The most despicable thing that I have seen in politics.”

“What you want to do is to destroy this guy’s life, hold this seat open, and hope you’ll win in 2020. You’ve said that, not me," the senator said.

“If you really wanted to know the truth, you sure as hell wouldn’t have done what you did to this guy,” Sen. Graham told his Democrat colleagues. “This is going to destroy the ability of people to come forward, because of this crap,”  Graham said.
