Franklin Graham On Kavanaugh Allegations: If It’s True, She Said No And He Respected That, It’s Not Relevant

From Pat Robertson’s CBN network:

Evangelist and humanitarian Franklin Graham says the sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is irrelevant. He told CBN News Tuesday, “it’s just a shame that a person like Judge Kavanaugh who has a stellar record–that somebody can bring something up that he did as a teenager close to 40 years ago. That’s not relevant.”

When questioned about the message that such a view sends to sexual abuse victims Graham said, “Well, there wasn’t a crime committed. These are two teenagers and it’s obvious that she said no and he respected it and walked away.”

Graham then noted that Kavanaugh has denied the accusation. “He just flat out says that’s not true. Regardless if it was true, these are two teenagers and she said no and he respected that so I don’t know what the issue is.”
