Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) told Fox News Sunday, he will listen to the accusations Dr. Christine Blasey Ford is making against Supreme Court Justice Nominee Brett Kavanaugh if she appears before the Senate Judiciary Committee, but without more details, he won’t “play a game here” and "ruin this guy's life."

“I want to listen to her but I'm being honest with you and everybody else. What do you expect me to do? You can't bring it in a criminal court. You would never sue civilly. You couldn't even get a warrant,” Graham told Fox News Sunday morning.

“What am I supposed to do? Go ahead and ruin this guy's life based on an accusation? I don't know when it happened, I don't know where it happened, and everybody named in regard to being there said it didn't happen. I'm just being honest.

Unless there's something more, no, I'm not going to ruin Judge Kavanaugh's life over this - but she should come forward. She should have her say. She will be respectfully treated.

What did you expect us to do with an anonymous letter to begin with? What do you expect somebody to do with an accusation this vague, not verified in any way?

Bring it forward, I will listen. But I'm not going to play a game here and tell you this will wipe out his entire life because if nothing changes, it won't with me.”
