Kavanaugh-Ford hearing: A dramatic lesson on gender roles

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

In remarks to reporters during a break in the hearing, Graham urged Republicans to stand strong on Kavanaugh in the face of the "uncorroborated" allegations against him and threatened Democrats over the "new norm" he said they're establishing. "The FBI will do a supplemental background investigation [of the Kavanaugh allegations] then I'm going to call for an investigation of what happened in this committee ― who betrayed Dr. Ford's trust".

".@LindseyGrahamSC has more decency and courage than every Democrat member of the committee combined".

Addressing panel Democrats again, he said: "Boy, ya'll want power".

"I've never felt better about [Kavanaugh] being on the bench than I do right now", Graham said. "I hope the American people can see through this sham.If you vote no, you're legitimizing the most despicable thing I have seen in my time in politics". Kavanaugh has called her accusations a "joke" and Judge has said he "categorically" denies the allegations. It contains mildly objectionable language.

"I hope you're on the Supreme Court". I didn't tell anyone, and you're telling all women that they don't matter, that they should just stay quiet because if they tell you what happened to them, you are going to ignore them.

Wagner acknowledged the "agony" of Blasey Ford, who he did not identify by name.

Graham repeatedly defended Kavanaugh and slammed Democrats against the backdrop of the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Thursday.

In Kavanaugh's angry and tearful opening statement, supporters saw an expression of the frustration Republicans have felt since Kavanaugh was nominated by President Donald Trump in July. "And if you really wanted to know the truth, you sure as hell wouldn't have done what you done to this guy".

Kavanaugh's mention of the Clintons was apparently a reference to when in the 1990s he worked for Ken Starr while Starr was an independent counsel investigating President Bill Clinton and business dealings of Bill and Hillary Clinton.

During Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing on Thursday, Sen.

Graham was responding to Stephanopoulos' playing a video clip showing Democratic Sen. Numerous women have come forward alleging sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh.

If one more week guarantees at least 51 votes in the Senate, then perhaps this Federal Bureau of Investigation probe is necessary. His powerhouse speech not only supported Kavanaugh and not only scolded Democrats; he rallied his Republican colleagues behind the nominee.

Highlighting the absurdity of a charge brought Wednesday by Julie Swetnick, Graham asked Kavanaugh: "Are you a gang rapist?"
