Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) admitted that he does not plan to change his mind on the fate of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh regardless of what he hears at the hearing about the sexual assault allegation against Trump’s pick.
“What am I supposed to do, go ahead and ruin this guy’s life based on an accusation?” Graham asked on “Fox News Sunday.”
“I’m just being honest. Unless there’s something more, no, I’m not going to ruin Judge Kavanaugh’s life over this, “Graham declared. “But she should come forward. She should have her say. She will be respectfully treated.”
Graham sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee, which has been negotiating terms for Kavanaugh’s accuser Christine Blasey Ford to testify at a hearing.
Ford alleged that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a party in the 1980s when they were both in high school and attempted to rape her. Kavanaugh has denied the allegations.
Graham said on Fox News that he believes Ford was “being used” by Kavanaugh’s opponents and said nothing she says will change that.
“I will listen, but I’m not going to play a game here and tell you this will wipe out his entire life,” Graham said. “Cause if nothing changes, it won’t with me.”
