Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said Wednesday that it’s time for the Senate Judiciary Committee to vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, now that the woman accusing him of sexual assault from the early 1980s is refusing to testify about her claim.
“Requiring an FBI investigation of a 36 year old allegation (without specific references to time or location) before Professor Ford will appear before the Judiciary Committee is not about finding the truth, but delaying the process till after the midterm elections,” Graham tweeted after Christine Blasey Ford’s lawyer said she wanted an FBI investigation before she testifies.
The article goes on to state the following:
“It is imperative the Judiciary committee move forward on the Kavanaugh nomination and a committee vote be taken ASAP,” Graham said.

Late Tuesday night, Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., said he agreed that without testimony from Ford, the Senate should start voting.
After learning of the allegation, Chairman @ChuckGrassley took immediate action to ensure both Dr. Ford and Judge Kavanaugh have the opportunity to be heard, in public or private. Republicans extended a hand in good faith. If we don’t hear from both sides on Monday, let’s vote.

With Ford refusing to testify Monday, wayward Republicans moving back on board. Corker says: If no testimony, let’s go ahead with vote. Flake tweeted just before midnight begging Ford to appear. Collins/Murkowski quiet during last night’s turmoil. https://t.co/tsZppT2WDF

When Dr. Ford came forward, I said that her voice should be heard and asked the Judiciary Committee to delay its vote on Judge Kavanaugh. It did so. I now implore Dr. Ford to accept the invitation for Monday, in a public or private setting. The committee should hear her voice.
