Cotton Calls For Probe Of Feinstein, Saying She 'Betrayed' Blasey Ford

"He said "no, I never did any of that" and there are plenty of people coming forward when they listened to him testifying before our committee", she said. Tom Cotton, R-Arkansas, on separate Sunday talk shows suggested Feinstein's office might have leaked a confidential letter by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford accusing Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her in high school. "Let me tell my Democratic friends, if this is the new norm, you better watch out for your nominees". You should be ashamed...

Graham's words drew quick praise from White House officials, with President Trump's counselor Kellyanne Conway praising the lawmaker for "excoriating the outrageous and unfair treatment" of Kavanaugh. Lindsey Graham in the cold open of Saturday Night Live this week in a send up of last week's Senate questioning of Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

Poor Brett thinks it's awful that his appalling behavior from so long ago has become an issue as part of a confirmation hearing for a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court.

He found it in Republican Sen. Arroyo asked. "Throw a temper tantrum, you get what you want".

Mr. Graham was the first Republican senator to grab the microphone, late in the afternoon, as Judge Kavanaugh sat for questions.

Mr Milne said while he was resigning, he had always defended the ABC's editorial independence. The ABC board sacked Ms Guthrie on Monday, triggering a week of damaging fallout.

Democrats' tactics were "the most unethical sham", Graham said in a fiery speech. "If you really wanted to know the truth, you sure as hell wouldn't have done what you've done to this guy".

"When you see [Supreme Court Justices] Sotomayor and Kagan, say hello because I voted for them". Boy, I hope you never get it.

Even Mark Judge, who Ford says was in the bedroom when Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her, has not denied that such an episode took place.

"I'm going to call for an investigation of what happened in this committee, whether he betrayed Dr. Ford's trust". The case can be made that if it weren't for Graham, Kavanaugh's confirmation would have been in jeopardy. Because after watching Kavanaugh be put through the gauntlet of personal destruction, good people of both parties will hesitate to answer the call to serve, and, as Kavanaugh said, "I fear that the whole country will reap the whirlwind".

The events of that hearing can only add to the country's divisions, with many liberals and progressives seeing Republicans as unsympathetic to alleged victims of sexual abuse and Republicans agreeing with Kavanaugh and Graham's cartoonish depiction of Democrats as a lynch mob that could care less about due process.
