‘My mind’s made up’: Lindsey Graham says he will vote for Kavanaugh even if FBI links him to sexual assault

Published

on

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) insisted over the weekend that he would vote to confirm Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh even if an FBI investigation found evidence that he may have sexually assault one or more women.

During an interview on 60 Minutes that is set to air Sunday night, Graham appeared with Republican Sen. John Kennedy of Louisiana.

“Could either of you change your mind depending on what the FBI report comes back with?” host John Dickerson wondered.

“Of course,” Kennedy replied as Graham stared at him intently.

“Open mind?” Dickerson pressed.

“Of course,” Kennedy repeated. “I said going into the hearing, I’ve talked to Judge Kavanaugh. I called him after this happened, the allegations came out, [and I] said, ‘Did you do it?’ He was resolute, determined, unequivocal.”

Graham suggested that he had set the bar much higher for changing his mind.

“My mind’s made up about Brett Kavanaugh and it would take a dynamite accusation,” Graham opined. “Because, here’s the deal, Dr. Ford, I don’t know what happened but I know this, Brett denied it vigorously and everybody she named couldn’t verify it, it’s 36 years old.”

“I don’t see anything new changing [my mind],” he concluded.

Jeff Sessions’ fate is a warning for us all

Published

on

Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions lost his primary race to be the Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in Alabama on Tuesday night in a landslide, according to Decision Desk HQ. Early returns showed him losing the shot to win back his old seat by more than 20 points to opponent Tommy Tuberville, who will face off against Democratic Sen. Doug Jones in November.

It wasn't a surprising loss for Sessions, though it is a brutal one. He gave up his seat in the Senate to become President Donald Trump's attorney general, and he lost his big chance to return because his one-time benefactor turned against him. Trump enthusiastically endorsed Tuberville while viciously and repeatedly denouncing Sessions.
