On Tuesday night, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) appeared on Fox News’ Hannity and descended into a crazed rant, demanding that Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) owes Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh an apology for asking him about his drinking habits.
“This is the one that bothers me the most. [Kavanugh] apologized to Amy Klobuchar for snapping at her. What would you do if you were accused of all these things, had your life ruined?” Graham asked on Fox News, referencing the exchange between Kavanaugh and Klobuchar last week as he testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
“Here’s what I think,” Graham added. “Amy Klobuchar should apologize to Kavanaugh and his family for being part of a smear campaign that I haven’t seen for over 20 years in politics.”
Graham’s remarks came days after Kavanaugh and Klobuchar engaged in a heated exchange as he testified about a sexual assault allegation brought against him by Christine Blasey Ford. Ford alleges Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a high school party in the 1980’s. He has denied all allegations against him.
Sen. Klobuchar asked Kavanaugh if he had ever consumed so much alcohol that he blacked out.
But Kavanaugh turned the question around and asked the Minnesota senator, “Have you?”
Graham has repeatedly denounced Democrats for how they have handled sexual misconduct allegations brought against Kavanaugh. He said earlier this week that “taking Kavanaugh down would unleash forces from the darkest side of American politics in perpetuity.”
He’s also claimed that Democratic senators in red states will be “toast” if they vote against Kavanaugh.
The FBI is currently conducting an investigation into sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has said that a vote on Kavanaugh’s confirmation will take place this week.
