Sen. Lindsey Graham, speaking to reporters at a break, expressed his frustration with the allegations that have threatened to derail Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation and shared a warning, "Let me tell my democratic friends, if this is the new norm, you better watch out for your nominees."
Here's his full remark:
Well let me put it this way to my Republican colleagues. If this becomes the new standard where you have an accusation for weeks, you drop it right before the hearing, you withhold from the committee a chance to do this in a professional timely fashion. When they say they’re going to do this is to delay the vote, get the Senate back in 2018 so they can fill the seat. I don’t want to publicly reward that kind of behavior. I think we’ve been very fair. And to my Republican colleagues. If you can ignore everything in this record an allegation that’s 35 years old, that’s uncertain in time, place, date and no corroboration. If that’s enough for you, God help us all as Republicans. Because this happens to us, but this never happens to them. Let me tell my democratic friends, if this is the new norm, you better watch out for your nominees.
