Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Monday accused NBC of being a "co-conspirator" in an attempt to bring down Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, criticizing the network for its coverage of assault accusations against Kavanaugh.
"Theyve been a co-conspirator in the destruction of Kavanaugh from my point of view," Graham said during an appearance on Fox News's "Hannity."
Graham attacked NBC for reporting last week that the Senate Judiciary Committee had questioned Kavanaugh about a fourth assault accusation. Senate investigators asked Kavanaugh about an anonymous complaint alleging that he physically assaulted a woman in 1998.
The complaint was originally sent to Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.).
Graham on Monday charged that a Democratic senator leaked the allegation. He also suggested that NBC wouldn't have reported the alleged assault if the same accusation were made against a Democratic nominee.
"Do you think NBC wouldve done that if this had been a Democratic male nominee? All I can say is that there the journalistic integrity has been destroyed regarding this case," he said.
Graham has been a fierce defender of Kavanaugh amid multiple allegations that have been made against the high court nominee. Three women Christine Blasey Ford, Julie Swetnick and Deborah Ramirez have come forward publicly to accuse Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct. The Senate Judiciary Committee also questioned Kavanaugh about other anonymous allegations.
President Trump last week asked the FBI to reopen a background investigation into Kavanaugh focused on the accusations of the women who have publicly come forward, after Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) called for the probe.
Glad to see Graham has finally come around to what Trump has been saying since he before he was elected. The media has been the opposition party for decades.
Graham is a little late but it’s cool.
I want some of whatever Graham has been drinking.
I also hope he keeps drinking it!
Graham is no longer following the McCain playbook of sucking up to the media. The worm has turned.
McCain is probably turning over in his grave.
Graham just told CNN he doesn’t “give a s—t” if they didn’t like him.
“if Kavanaugh loses confirmation vote - tell POTUS to renominate him and “put it to the American people in the midterms” -L. Graham
Embrace your inner b!tch, lindsay...You go girl!!
Senate Maverick. The new improved version. The last one was just a spoiled brat.
Who is this Lindsey guy rocking around like Jack Lambert all of a sudden?
Before he died, John gave Lindsay back his gonads....
Good. I hope he become a whirling dervish in his grave.
So, Senator, does that then make NBC an “enemy of the people”? See...Trump just reaches conclusions before you figure it out.
Memo to the dude on TV who looks like Lindsey Graham - who are you and what did you do to Lindsey?
Next thing you’ll see is he will start dating women. Shep will be jealous...
Then, conspiracies do really exist, and not every one who thinks so is a “conspiracy theorist.” It is not obvious that the attacks upon Judge Kavanaugh are concerted; that they form a conspiracy? Huge, nation-shaking conspiracies really do take place.
I imagine many many people have contaced Lindsey thanking him.
I hope his eyes are opened.
Graham is also pissed because the Dems and media have been calling him out as closeted. He was their favorite Republican along with the now deceased “maverick” aka the Arizona backstabber.
The media whaled on their idol McCain while he ran against The Kenyan. Now they give Lindsey the same treatment.
They didn't have any "journalistic integrity" left to destroy, Lindsey. They haven't had any for decades.
