Sen. Graham: When Liberals ‘Can’t Win,’ They Intimidate Others Into ‘Bending’ To Their Will

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) in an interview with Fox News Wednesday night revealed that he never needed Capitol Police to provide him with security before the contentious Brett Kavanaugh hearings.

Graham said that the reaction from liberals during and after Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings goes to show that when they “can’t win at the ballot box,” they “take those of us who did win and ... try to intimidate us into bending" to their will. 

He said that in one instance, a man wouldn’t let him off of the elevator and he was only able to get away to his office once the man was escorted out of the building. Graham also said that on multiple occasions, people surrounded him, filming him and yelling at him.

“This is what happens when you can't win at the ballot box,” said Sen. Graham, just ahead of the midterm elections. “You take those of us who did win and you try to intimidate us into bending to your will. I’ve never had police security before… until the Kavanaugh hearings.”

“I had a guy who wouldn’t let the elevator close,” he continued. “I had a bunch of people around me filming me, yelling at me, saliva all over my jacket. It was pretty bad, and I can only imagine what my other colleagues went through.”

Graham went on to say that civility is on the ballot in November.

“So this is on the ballot: Once the election's over, do you want those who lost to try to physically assault those who won? Or do you want to have an election, once it's over, we try to govern the country?"

His remarks come after Hillary Clinton and former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder called for political warfare against President Trump and the Republican Party. 

Former First Lady Michelle Obama in an interview with NBC last week chastised Clinton and Holder for their calls to do away with civility in politics, saying, "Fear is not a proper motivator."
