Thank you (again) Senator Lindsey Graham!
The man who might have single-handedly been responsible for pushing Brett Kavanaugh over the edge in the confirmation hearings has just come to his defense again.
Wonderful, thank you Lindsey 2.0!
Here's more, from CBS News:
At least five Democratic presidential candidates called for Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh to be impeached after a new report about alleged sexual misconduct from his college years. President Trump, meanwhile, stood by Kavanaugh and said the Justice Department should "rescue" him.
Over the weekend, multiple Democratic presidential candidates, including Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Julián Castro, Cory Booker and Pete Buttigieg, called for Kavanaugh to be impeached. Kavanaugh has not responded to the latest report, but previously denied all accusations.
"Last year the Kavanaugh nomination was rammed through the Senate without a thorough examination of the allegations against him," Warren tweeted. "Confirmation is not exoneration, and these newest revelations are disturbing. Like the man who appointed him, Kavanaugh should be impeached."
Harris and Castro both accused Kavanaugh of lying under oath during his Senate confirmation hearings.
In a statement obtained by CBS News, Joe Biden called for further investigation into Kavanaugh and "the truthfulness of his testimony to Senate." "We need to get to the bottom of whether the Trump Administration and Senate Republicans pressured the FBI to ignore evidence or prevented them from following up on leads relating to Justice Kavanaugh's background investigation," the former vice president said.
He also applauded the women who have come forward with accusations against Kavanaugh, saying they "deserve to be treated with dignity and be listened to."
On Saturday, the New York Times published an essay adapted from a book excerpt that claimed one of Kavanaugh's Yale classmates allegedly saw him with his pants down at a drunken dorm party, with friends pushing his penis into a female student's hands, when Kavanaugh was a freshman. According to the essay, the classmate told this story to senators and the FBI, but the FBI did not investigate it.
During Kavanaugh's confirmation process, another Yale classmate, Deborah Ramirez, said Kavanaugh pulled down his pants at another drunken dorm party and thrust his penis at her. She said she swatted it away. The Times essay said it had found additional corroboration for Ramirez's story, with seven people saying they heard about the incident long before Kavanaugh became a federal judge.
On Sunday, the New York Times issued an editors' note that stated an earlier version of the essay "did not include one element" of the book's account of the incident. "The book reports that the female student declined to be interviewed and friends say that she does not recall the incident," the editors' note states. "That information has been added to the article."
The New York Times also deleted a previous tweet that promoted the essay, calling it "offensive."
