Sen. Lindsey Graham, while explaining why he'll vote to send Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Senate, said women such as Dr. Christine Blasey Ford who say they've been sexually assaulted have the right to be heard, but he's never heard a more compelling defense of one's honor than came from Kavanaugh Thursday.
"He looked me in the eye, everybody in the eye, and he was mad, and he should have been mad," the South Carolina Republican said during the Senate Judiciary Committee's hearing. "He could tell you what he was doing during high school in a way that just blew me away...if you are a gang rapist when you are a sophomore and a junior in high school, you don't let it go."
He also pointed out that Kavanaugh has been under the highest levels of public service and undergone six FBI investigations, and nothing turned up, especially about the latest allegations that Kavanaugh was at parties where gang rapes occurred.
"All I can say about Ms. Ford is I feel sorry for her," said Graham. "I do believe something happened to her, but I don't know when and where, but I don't believe it was Brett Kavanaugh."
One can't just accuse someone of a crime, said Graham, but must tell when and where it happened and prove beyond a reasonable doubt that it did.
"The reason this case will never be brought in Maryland or anywhere else, you just can't get there," said Graham. "If you wanted to get a warrant, which is a probable cause standard to search or arrest them, you have to present by probable cause when and where it happened."
