Graham Says Ford and Kavanaugh Are Both ‘Victims,’ Dems Owe Ford An ‘Apology’

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on Thursday claimed Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford were equally victims and suggested Democrats owe Blasey Ford an apology.

“I’m not going to reward people for playing a political game, I think, with her life,” he said. “She is just as much a victim of this as, I think, Brett Kavanaugh because somebody betrayed her trust and we know who she gave the letter to. And the people that betrayed her trust, they owe her an apology.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
