He said on CBS Sunday that Democrats had "betrayed" and "victimized" Blasey Ford during their "search-and-destroy" mission for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, adding that the breach in confidentiality would decrease the likelihood that women will come forward with sexual assault allegations in the future.
Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham defended Judge Brett Kavanaugh against some Democrats' criticism that his Senate testimony last week shows he lacks a judicial temperament.
"God helps us all as Republicans", Graham said to reporters.
Recalling that he voted for Obama nominees Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, the senator told Democrats, "I would never do to them what you've done to this guy". You should be ashamed...

Democratic senators pressed Kavanaugh over and over again to request an FBI investigation if he had nothing to hide.
"Maybe she didn't, but that was the worst body language I've ever seen", Trump said.
"Contrary to her wishes, Dr. Ford was thrust into the national spotlight". The case can be made that if it weren't for Graham, Kavanaugh's confirmation would have been in jeopardy.
Kavanaugh and Graham were both following the Trumpian model: When in doubt, deny, rage, downplay and then attack your accusers as partisan plants.
Highlighting the absurdity of a charge brought Wednesday by Julie Swetnick, Graham asked Kavanaugh: "Are you a gang rapist?" Just as Republicans were beginning to think this could be the end, it was Graham who dumped cold water on the Democrats and delivered a shot of adrenaline to the wobbly GOP.
"I've never heard that the White House, either under this president or other presidents, is saying, 'Well, you can't interview this person, and you can't look at this time period".
