During Judge Brett Kavanaugh ’s hearing, Senator Lindsey Graham said that Democrats were part of an “unethical sham” in an effort to keep the Supreme Court seat vacant. What you want to do is destroy this guy’s life, hold this seat open and hope you win in 2020. You said that, not me.

"They said they tried to destroy Brett Kavanaugh so they could fill the seat – they were dumb enough to say that," Graham said.

"I've seen this movie before. It's not going to work, it didn't work with Kavanaugh."

During his confirmation hearings, Kavanaugh was accused of committing sexual assault in high school by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.

Blasey Ford testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee and the Republican-controlled chamber voted to confirm Kavanaugh. Graham has frequently painted the accusations as a Democratic hit job.

"We've got the votes to confirm Justice Ginsburg's replacement before the election," Graham said. "We're going to move forward in the committee, we're going to report the nomination out of the committee to the floor of the United States Senate so we can vote before the election. Now, that's the constitutional process."

"After Kavanaugh, everything changed with me," he said. "They are not going to intimidate me, [Senate Majority Leader] Mitch McConnell, or anybody else."

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham said on Thursday that he opposes censuring Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer amid a controversy over comments the New York Democrat made about Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch.

Protesters gathered outside Graham's home on Monday in an attempt to "wake him up" about his previous commitment not to fill a Supreme Court vacancy during this election cycle. On Hannity, he appeared unmoved by their complaints.

"Name one liberal justice nominated by a Democrat that had their life ruined," Graham said. "They are talking about changing the Electoral College. If they keep the house, the Senate and the White House, this country will change fundamentally.

"The Electoral College will be obliterated. We will go to popular vote. D.C. And Puerto Rico will become states. There will be 104 senators. It goes on and on and on."

Graham isn't the first prominent Republican to suggest Democrats will try to smear whomever Trump nominates. Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich claimed on Monday that Democrats could use the nominee's faith against her.

"If President Trump nominates Amy Coney Barrett, Notre Dame Law Professor, Appeals Court judge, mother of seven (two adopted from Haiti), clerk for Scalia, devout Catholic, it will pose a unique challenge for Kamala Harris – the most anti-Catholic bigot nominated in over a century," Gingrich tweeted.

"Are Democrats prepared to say a devout Catholic is by definition unfit to serve on the Supreme Court? If no pro-life Justice is acceptable then no faithful Catholic, Evangelical or Orthodox Jew can be considered. Are Democrats really prepared to alienate that many Americans?" he said.

Graham: "We got the votes to confirm" nominee before election

  Graham: Four Republicans would have to break with the party to prevent a vote from coming to the floor. Senator Mitt Romney of Utah, who broke with the party to vote in favor of convicting President Trump on one article of impeachment, has not yet weighed in. If the vote is split 50-50, Vice President Mike Pence would cast the tie-breaking vote.
