September 27: Lindsey Graham on Hannity: "I am now more convinced than ever that he didn’t do it, that he’s the right guy to be on the court, that Ms. Ford has got a problem and destroying Judge Kavanaugh’s life won’t fix her problem." (Twitter)

September 26: From my view, just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse, it just did. The lawyer to porn stars has just taken this debacle to an even lower level. I hope people will be highly suspicious of this allegation presented by Michael Avenatti. I have a difficult time believing any person would continue to go to – according to the affidavit – ten parties over a two-year period where women were routinely gang raped and not report it. Why would any reasonable person continue to hang around people like this? Why would any person continue to put their friends and themselves in danger? Isn’t there some duty to warn others? I very much believe in allowing people to be heard. But I am not going to be played, and I’m not going to have my intelligence insulted by the Michael Avenattis of the world. I will not be a participant in wholesale character assassination that defies credibility. (Twitter)

September 25: Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) says he remains confident Kavanaugh will be confirmed to the Supreme Court. “I don't think any Republican doubts he's qualified. The only thing you could be concerned about is his character.” More: Graham said there’s a conflict between the accusations and what else is known about Kavanaugh’s character. “Everything we know about his character seems to go opposite of the allegations.” (Twitter)

September 24: “I’m ready to move forward after the hearing as soon as possible," Graham declared. "I have no doubt something happened to Ms. Ford. I really don't know her. What I've got before me is unknown time, unknown location, no credible verification. Unless that changes, that's where I'm at." (Note: We have not yet confirmed the exact date of these comments, but they appear to have taken place on or around 9/24/2018.) (Politico)

September 24: When it comes to stopping Pres @realDonaldTrump and his agenda there seem to be no boundaries. Whether it’s coaching witnesses or reporting thinly-sourced stories without proper verification, everything is fair game and falls into the category of – ‘The Ends Justify the Means.' What we are witnessing is the total collapse of the traditional confirmation process for a Supreme Court nominee. It is being replaced by a game of delay, deception, and wholesale character assassination. Clearly when it comes to President Trump, elections – in the eyes of Democrats – have no consequences. In my view, the process needs to move forward with a hearing Thursday, and vote in committee soon thereafter. (Twitter)

September 24: "We’re in the Twilight Zone when it comes to Kavanaugh," Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., told Fox News on Capitol Hill. Later Monday evening, in an interview with Fox News' "Hannity," Graham said the allegations against Kavanaugh are "collapsing." Graham charged that Democrats' complaints about "rushing" the Kavanaugh confirmation vote are "like an arsonist complaining about a fire," noting that Senate Democrats knew about California professor Christine Ford's allegations about Kavanaugh in July but did not publicize them until days before a crucial Judiciary Committee vote earlier this month. (Fox News)

September 23: Asked if there's anything Ford can say to change his vote on Kavanaugh, @LindseyGrahamSC says he'll hear her out but... "I'm just being honest: Unless there's something more, no, I'm not going to ruin Judge Kavanaugh's life over this." #scpol (Twitter)

September 16: Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) said he agreed with the committee’s concerns about the “substance and process” regarding Ford’s allegation — although he said he would “gladly” listen to her if she wanted to talk to lawmakers. “If the committee is to hear from Ms. Ford, it should be done immediately so the process can continue as scheduled,” Graham, a member of the committee, said Sunday afternoon. (The Washington Post)

July 9: Brett #Kavanaugh will be an outstanding Justice on the Supreme Court. I also want to congratulate President @realDonaldTrump on this great choice. What a great night for the American people! (Twitter)
