Lindsey Graham has been on a roll lately with this whole Brett Kavanaugh thing. He’s even earned the nickname Lindsey 2.0. If you missed his epic performance at the Kavanaugh hearing you can watch it here.
Graham is clearly passionate about Brett Kavanaugh and it’s not hard to see why.
He went on Fox News with Laura Ingraham and kept the intensity high.
From The Daily Caller:
Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham had a blunt response to his Democratic colleague who called the FBI investigation into Brett Kavanaugh “bulls**t” on Fox News Thursday. The response forced Fox News to get out the bleeper.
Graham joined Laura Ingraham on her show to talk about how Democrats are handling the Kavanaugh FBI report. Ingraham played audio of Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez calling the investigation “bulls**t.”
After the clip played Graham said, “And let my friend Bob: what y’all have done is bulls**t.” Fox News to get out the bleeper on live TV for the moment.
He nailed it. Again.
On Friday, it became pretty clear that Kavanaugh is getting confirmed. After a 51-49 vote Republicans were able to end the debate and send it to a vote on Saturday.
From Fox News:
The Senate voted Friday to end debate on Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination, setting the stage for a final vote in the chamber Saturday evening — where the White House now believes it has the votes to confirm Kavanaugh.
The vote to invoke cloture was 51-49. While the vote was not necessarily indicative of the final confirmation vote, it moved him one step closer to sitting on the highest court in the land, with three out of four key undecided senators voting “yes” to advance the nomination.
Republican Sens. Susan Collins, R-Maine, Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., and West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin, voted to move forward. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, voted “no.” With a 51-49 majority, Republicans can’t afford more than one defection if all Democrats were to vote together. Collins is expected to announce her decision in a speech on the Senate floor at 3 p.m. Friday. Flake later said he intends to vote “yes,” “unless something big changes.”
