A group of senior Republican legislators are now receiving a full security detail at the US Capitol; raising serious questions over the lawmakers’ safety after weeks of protests and widespread demonstrations.
Sens. Lindsey Graham and John Kennedy are among those with a heightened security presence including the uniformed Capitol Police and the Deputy Sergeant at Arms.
“This is dangerous. I had somebody that wouldn’t let an elevator shut. An Iraq War veteran. I appreciate his service, but I just have a different opinion of Judge Kavanaugh,” Graham said. “I tried to make that clear.”
Sen. Graham has come under fire from left-wing activists over his full-throated support for Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court in recent weeks.
“I believe Judge Kavanaugh will be confirmed to the Supreme Court very soon. However, if his nomination were to fall short, I would encourage President Trump to re-nominate Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. It would — in effect — be appealing the Senate’s verdict directly to the American people,” said the GOP leader.

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.
