Talking Points Memo reports:
Speaking to reporters during a recess in the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing featuring Christine Blasey Ford, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) warned his “Democratic friends” that they “better watch out” if “this becomes the new norm.”
“If this becomes the new standard, where you have an accusation for weeks and you drop it right before the hearing, you withhold from the committee the chance to do this in a professional timely fashion, when they publicly say their goal is to delay the vote … I don’t want to reward that kind of behavior,” he said.
“Let me tell my Democratic friends, if this becomes the new norm, you better watch out for your nominees.”
Watch @LindseyGrahamSC sink to an all new low as he claims Dr. Ford has not proven anything, he still supports Kavanaugh, he claims this is all Dem strategy and then he threatens Democrats: “If this is the new norm, you better watch out for your nominees.” #KavanaughHearings pic.twitter.com/grNze9MTcI
