Jabbing his finger at Democrats sitting across the dais, the South Carolina Republican said they had made clear from the start that they would use any tactics to derail Judge Kavanaugh's confirmation, and they have lived up to that dark promise.

Kavanaugh whined, "I have been through hell and then some".

Graham called the allegations "crap" and accused Democrats of using Ford to ruin Kavanaugh's life and to block his confirmation to the Supreme Court. Kavanaugh denied the allegation. "If that's enough for you, God help us all as Republicans, because this happens to us, it never happens to them", Graham told reporters Thursday.
