Chair of the Democratic National Committee Tom Perez raised eyebrows across the country Sunday; saying Republican lawmakers must “pay a price” for confirming Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the US Supreme Court.
Perez issued the stark warning in a fundraising email sent to supporters immediately following Kavanaugh’s confirmation; saying “Here is one thing we’ve learned from the Brett Kavanaugh fight: We can never, ever, trust congressional Republicans to stand up to Donald Trump.”
“If you’re able, make a $3 donation right now to make Republicans pay a price for Brett Kavanaugh,” writes Perez. “So it really is this simple: If we don’t want people like Brett Kavanaugh to be appointed to lifetime positions in our federal judiciary, we need to elect Democratic majorities this November.”
Perez’ comments come days after leading GOP politicians -such as Senators Ted Cruz and Rand Paul- were confronted at DC-area restaurants and airports over their support for Brett Kavanaugh; requiring many to add an extra security detail while working at the US Capitol.

GRAHAM ON HANNITY: Democrats Have 'NO BOUNDARIES' in 'Destroying' Donald Trump
Sen. Lindsey Graham stopped by ‘Hannity’ Monday night to weigh-in on Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation process; saying “there are no boundaries” when it comes to opposing President Trump and his agenda.
“For [Democrats] to complain about the process is like an arsonist complaining about a fire. The allegations against Judge Kavanaugh are collapsing. This has been the worst low point in the Senate for me and that is saying a lot,” Graham said.
“I never thought it would get this bad. We are going to have a hearing Thursday and have a vote soon thereafter. And I look forward to supporting this good man,” the Senator added. “The takeaway for me, Sean, is that when it comes to Donald Trump, there are no boundaries, there are no rules. Whatever you need to do to destroy him or his agenda is okay.”
GRAHAM ON HANNITY: Democrats Should be ‘ASHAMED’ of Kavanaugh Hearings
Sen. Lindsey Graham stopped by ‘Hannity’ Thursday night to weigh-in on his powerful remarks before the Senate Judiciary Committee; saying he simply “told the truth” and Democratic lawmakers should be “ashamed’ of the hearing.
“I just told the truth. This is not about finding the truth between Dr. Ford and Brett Kavanaugh, it’s about delaying the hearing to get past the midterms,” said Graham.
“If we legitimize this, God help us all, because both sides can do this. To my friends on the other side: I would never have done this to one of your nominees. You should be ashamed… When Donald Trump wins, there are no rules, there are no boundaries,” he added.
