Senator Lindsey Graham listens to Dr. Christine Blasey Ford speak before the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to be an associate justice of the Supreme Court of the United States on Capitol Hill on Sept. 27

On the other side, Democratic Sen.

The senior senator from SC also had pointed words for any Republican senator who is considering not voting to confirm Kavanaugh. Just hours earlier, Ford described for senators what she says was an assault by Kavanaugh on a summer evening three decades ago.

On Thursday, an "I Stand With Brett" rally held in Washington D.C., where several women spoke and held "Confirm Kavanaugh" signs. When you see [Justices Sonia] Sotomayor and [Elena] Kagan, tell them that Lindsey said all of them. Many are now saying that it may become one of the most controversial political days in American history. GOP senators opted to defer to Mitchell during questioning of Christine Blasey Ford, while Democrats asked their own questions. You came to the wrong town at the wrong time, my friend, ' he said.

After being silent on the hearing most of the day, the White House sounded its approval of Graham's counterattack - and in doing so signaled its support for the embattled nominee.

Graham had been, at one time, one of the most prominent Republican critics of the president. "God bless him", Sanders tweeted. "This is hell, this is going to destroy the ability of good people to come forward because of this". "I think we've been very fair". She's as much a victim as you are. "Because somebody betrayed her trust, and we know who she gave the letter to". Kavanaugh testified later on Thursday afternoon.

In remarks to reporters during a break in the hearing, Graham urged Republicans to stand strong on Kavanaugh in the face of the "uncorroborated" allegations against him and threatened Democrats over the "new norm" he said they're establishing. Ford claimed he assaulted her in the summer of 1982.

"When Donald Trump wins, there are no rules [for the Democrats]", he said. It's tempting to say his performance was flawless, except it would demean the manifest honesty of Graham's indignation to label it such.

Graham shook his head and said to Kavanaugh, "I can not imagine what you and your family have gone through". Kavanaugh denies the allegation.

He also took issue with the notion of waiting for an FBI investigation into the allegations against Kavanaugh.

When he was still practicing law, Graham said he'd "seen it all".
