After Thursday's Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Brett M. Kavanaugh, Republicans are more enraged than demoralized.

Orrin Hatch called the Thursday hearing a "national disgrace", while fellow Republican Sen.

"I know I'm a single white man from SC and I've been told to shut up but I will not shut up", Graham boomed to the Senate Judiciary Committee. That shortcoming has led supporters of Kavanaugh, who denies the accusations, to question her credibility. He took deep breaths and lengthy sips of water to gain his composure.

"If you wanted an FBI investigation, you could have come to us", Graham declared, turning to the Democrats. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, interjected. Sen.

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents will talk to Christine Blasey Ford, who claimed Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed and groped her during a high school party in 1982, and a second accuser, Deborah Ramirez, who alleges Kavanaugh exposed himself to her when they were classmates at Yale in the 1980s. Kavanaugh has vehemently denied the allegations. "I hope the American people can see through this sham - that you knew about it and you held it". He also described Kavanaugh's confirmation process as "the most unethical sham since I've been in politics". Ford said she was "100 percent" certain a drunken Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed, tried to remove her clothes and clapped a hand over her mouth as she tried to yell for help. "I called him after this happened, that allegation came out, said, 'Did you do it?' He was resolute, determined, unequivocal". The case can be made that if it weren't for Graham, Kavanaugh's confirmation would have been in jeopardy. Graham told the Democrats. Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders tweeted: "LindseyGrahamSC has more decency and courage than every Democrat member of the committee combined".

"They are trying to portray him as a stumbling, bumbling drunk, gang-rapist who during high school and college was Bill Cosby", Graham said. "And if I am chairman next year, if we keep the majority and Senator Grassley moves over, I'm going to remember this".

Republican senators gathered for a closed-door meeting after the hearing and gave Graham a round of applause.

Graham shook his head and said to Kavanaugh, "I can not imagine what you and your family have gone through".
