A prominent Republican senator cast serious doubt on Democrats' motives around the sexual assault allegations thrown at Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh after Thursday morning's Senate hearing with his accuser.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., spoke with reporters minutes after Christine Blasey Ford's time in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee came to a close.

"I'm really upset that they knew about this in August and never told anybody. I'm really upset that if Dianne Feinstein believes that this was a credible allegation, that she wouldn't … turn it over to the committee," Graham said. "Not have something this close to the midterms."

Graham added that he believes Democrats are trying to stall Kavanaugh's nomination in hopes that they can win back control of the Senate and block his nomination for good.

"For being 40-something days away from the election, and they delay this past the midterms so that they can win back the Senate and never allow [President Donald] trump to fill the seat," Graham said. "I believe that now more than ever. This is what I am more convinced of. The friends on the other side [of the aisle] turned out to be just the way it is. I feel ambushed as a majority."
