Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said Thursday he was “ready to vote” after seeing the fruits of the FBI background investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday accused their Republican counterparts of broadcasting inaccurate information on a committee Twitter account controlled by the majority.
In a letter to committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA), Democrats on the committee — minus Sens. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and Chris Coons (D-DE) — said that “we are compelled to state for the record that there is information in the second post that is not accurate”:
Nowhere in any of these six FBI reports, which the committee has reviewed on a bipartisan basis, was there ever a whiff of ANY issue – at all – related in any way to inappropriate sexual behavior or alcohol abuse. 2/2
The Republican majority’s Twitter account defended the post with another tweet alleging “baseless innuendo” and “false smears” by Democrats:
Nothing in the tweet is inaccurate or misleading. The committee stands by its statement, which is completely truthful. More baseless innuendo and more false smears from Senate Democrats. https://t.co/x7VUEKnFRV

FEMA and the FCC tested both the Wireless Emergency Alerts (for cell phones) and Emergency Alert System (for broadcast, cable, satellite, and wireline communications) on Wednesday, marking the first time the cell phone alerts have been tested nationally.
White House Sarah Huckabee Sanders refused to answer questions about President Donald Trump’s treatment of the so-called “Central Park Five” on Wednesday, despite the sharp contrast between Trump’s attitude toward their case and his view of the allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who he’s claimed has been deemed “guilty until proven innocent.”
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Wednesday that Democrats’ handling of sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh had been a “complete and total disgrace.” Watch below:
