Sen. Lindsey Graham called for a full investigation into the Democratic handling of Dr. Christine Ford’s 36-year-old allegation of sexual assault by Judge Brett Kavanaugh over the weekend; saying he intends to get to the bottom of this “despicable process.”
The GOP leader was speaking with ABC News when he slammed Sen. Feinstein’s delay in coming forward with the accusation at the beginning of the confirmation process; adding “We’re going to do a wholesale, full scale investigation of what I think was a despicable process to deter it from happening again.”
