Lindsey Graham: Kavanaugh allegations ‘collapsing’ as poll says majority want up-or-down vote on nominee

(National SentinelLet’s Get On With It: Senate Judiciary Committee member Lindsey Graham said Tuesday during an appearance on 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.

“If I have a question I’m sure I’ll ask it,” Graham said. “But I want to turn it over to the person who has more experience than I do. I’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, Breitbart News reported.

“These allegations are collapsing,” he continued. “The second allegation [from Deborah Ramirez] couldn’t even make it in The New York Times, and only God knows what [Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael] Avenatti’s going to say.

“Everything in this man’s life [Kavanaugh] screams that he’s been respectful to women when he’s been in charge of women and their careers. They have nothing but great things to say,” Graham continued.

Meanwhile, a Rasmussen Reports poll results released Tuesday shows that 56 percent of likely American voters surveyed by telephone and online agree with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s decision to schedule a vote as soon as possible on Kavanaugh’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 the “near future” while he blasted Democrats’ despicable efforts to smear him.

“The Democrats have already made up their minds and chosen their tactics,” McConnell said. “Delay. Obstruct. Resist.”

“They’re going to do whatever they could to stop this qualified, experienced and mainstream nominee,” McConnell said.

“Democrats have signaled for months they’d put on whatever performance the far-left special interest demanded and throw all the mud they could manufacture,” McConnell added. “But even by far-left standards, this shameful, shameful smear campaign has hit a new low.”

He concluded: “I want to make it perfectly clear, Mr. President. Judge Kavanaugh will be voted on here on the Senate floor.”
