Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., issued a warning to Senate Democrats Thursday if Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination fails: Watch your back.
Graham told reporters during a break in the hearing for Christine Blasey Ford that Democrats “better watch out” in the future when then nominate individuals to important posts, claiming that they have established a “new standard” for nominees.
Graham alleged that Democrats intentionally withheld Ford’s accusations until late in the confirmation process in order to delay the final vote and try to keep the Supreme Court seat open until they win back the Senate majority.
“They’re publicly saying that,” he said. “I don’t want to reward that kind of behavior.”… Reports the Washington Examiner
