Sen. Graham Rips Dems: Do You Want to Live in a World of 'Guilty Until Proven Innocent?'
Sen. Lindsey Graham said Democrats' treatment of Justice Brett Kavanaugh was appalling, adding that it was wrong for the left to attack Sen. Susan Collins as well.
"It's all about 'outcomes' for our friends on the left," Graham (R-S.C.) said on "Hannity" Monday.
Graham said Collins was treated unfairly after the Maine Republican gave an impassioned speech that concluded with her intention to vote to confirm Kavanaugh.
He added that several Democrats, including Hawaii's Mazie Hirono, were "insulting" to the rule of law and other core principles throughout Kavanaugh's confirmation process.
"The Hirono Standard is horrific," he said, referring to how the 70-year-old lawmaker declared that men should "shut up" and that women "need to be believed" outright.
"What was insulting was how the senator from Hawaii took everything we hold near and dear and threw it over," he said.
"[Do] you want to live in the world of Senator Hirono where you're guilty until proven innocent?" he asked.
