(National Sentinel)Â Let’s Get On With It: Senate Judiciary Committee member Lindsey Graham said Tuesday during an appearance onÂ Fox News‘ “The Story” with Martha McCallum that allegations of sexual abuse by two women against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh were collapsing.
The South Carolina Republican’s comments come as a new survey shows that a majority of Americans want the Senate to hold a vote on Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
During the interview, Graham talked about how the committee planned to handle allegations by Christine Blasey Ford in particular, the first woman to ‘come forward’ after Democrats outed her.
â€œIf I have a question Iâ€™m sure Iâ€™ll ask it,â€ Graham said. â€œBut I want to turn it over to the person who has more experience than I do. Iâ€™m trying to tell people that this bothers me. I voted for their nominees. I never would have thought to do this to [Obama nominees Sonia] Sotomayor and [Elena] Kagan,” Graham said,Â Breitbart News reported.
â€œThese allegations are collapsing,â€ he continued. â€œThe second allegation [from Deborah Ramirez] couldnâ€™t even make it in The New York Times, and only God knows what [Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael] Avenattiâ€™s going to say.
“Everything in this man’s life [Kavanaugh] screams that heâ€™s been respectful to women when heâ€™s been in charge of women and their careers. They have nothing but great things to say,” Graham continued.
Meanwhile, a Rasmussen Reports poll resultsÂ releasedÂ Tuesday shows that 56 percent of likely American voters surveyed by telephone and online agree with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnellâ€™s decision to schedule a vote as soon as possible on Kavanaughâ€™s nomination.
Only 20 percent disagree and 23 percent are undecided, the poll noted.
During a floor speech on Monday, the Kentucky Republican vowed that a vote on Kavanaugh’s confirmation would take place in theÂ â€œnear futureâ€ while he blasted Democrats’ despicable efforts to smear him.
â€œThe Democrats have already made up their minds and chosen their tactics,â€ McConnell said. â€œDelay. Obstruct. Resist.â€
â€œTheyâ€™re going to do whatever they could to stop this qualified, experienced and mainstream nominee,â€ McConnell said.
â€œDemocrats have signaled for months theyâ€™d put on whatever performance the far-left special interest demanded and throw all the mud they could manufacture,â€ McConnell added. â€œBut even by far-leftÂ standards, this shameful, shameful smear campaign has hit a new low.”
He concluded: â€œI want to make it perfectly clear, Mr. President. Judge Kavanaugh will be voted on here on the Senate floor.â€
