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.
“I’m more confident than ever that what the committee found was held up and then some,” Graham told reporters.
He added: “The main thing for me is that you need to go to the FBI, and you need to ask them, did they feel like they were able to do their job without interference? And I think the answer is yes.”
Graham distinguished himself Thursday with a loud, angry denunciation of Democrats during Kavanaugh’s testimony regarding Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations of sexual assault against him.
The FBI, Graham said Thursday, had completed its days-long investigation “professionally” and “without interference,” and, he said, “it validated where we are.”
“The Brett Kavanaugh that I knew before the committee is the Brett Kavanaugh I know now,” he said, before turning to walk away from the reporters in front of him.
“The only difference is an effort to ruin this man’s life. I am ready to vote.”
