The Democrats' resounding response to Graham in that hearing should have been:
"News Flash, DEMOCRATS DID WIN AN ELECTION; THEY WON THE 2012 ELECTION, and they didn't have to collude/conspire with Russia to do so. As you recall, Democratic President Barack Obama was President of the United States and had almost a year to go in his term when he nominated Judge Merrick Garland as a supreme court nominee, but you Republicans in Congress REFUSED to hold proceedings of ANY kind on Garland's appointment. And, unlike Trump, President Obama was not the subject of ANY criminal investigations and was not attempting to put a nominee in place to save himself from being indicted, criminally prosecuted and/or impeached or put a nominee in place who might possibly vote to allow him to actually pardon himself for criminal activity."
Brianrose, you can't see me right now but I am standing and applauding you!! I watched most of the hearings and what Lindsey Graham said made me irate. What McConnell did to President Obama and Merrick Garland was DESPICABLE! Republicans are unabashed LIARS and CHEATERS. Why do we, AMERICANS let them get away with it? They have zero shame. Republicans have only won the popular vote ONE out of SEVEN presidential elections yet they've appointed 3 justices and if the radical, activist Kavanaugh is confirmed, they will have appointed 4 justices without having a legitimate mandate. How do these Republicans live with themselves? How do they look their children and grandchildren in the eyes? Are they that desperate to win that they will sell their soul?
