Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar owes Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh an apology for being part of a "smear campaign" against him, Sen. Lindsey Graham said on Fox's News' Sean Hannity.
Speaking about the exchange between Kavanaugh and Klobuchar last week as the judge testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee regarding allegations of sexual misconduct, Graham said that Kavanaugh “apologized to Amy Klobuchar for snapping at her.”
But Graham then asked, “What would you do if you were accused of all these things, had your life ruined?” The South Carolina senator then insisted that “Amy Klobuchar should apologize to Kavanaugh and his family for being part of a smear campaign that I haven’t seen for over 20 years in politics.”
During the committee hearing last week, Klobuchar asked Kavanaugh if he had ever consumed so much alcohol that he blacked out, according to The Hill. Kavanaugh turned the question around and asked her, “Have you?”
Kavanaugh later apologized, saying the allegations had been difficult on him.
Klobuchar said she appreciated the apology, but she criticized his temperament a day later, saying that if she “was in [Kavanaugh's] courtroom and acted like that, he would have thrown me out.”
Graham said that anger on the Republican side over what they see as unfair tactics to damage a good man’s name has united and energized the party just before the midterms and that any Democratic senator in a red state who votes against Kavanaugh will be "toast."
