The entire hearing by the Senate Judiciary Committee was heavily watched around the nation. Thousands of people even streamed the hearing live online while the debate and testimonies occurred.
Judge Kavanaugh made an emotional appearance on Thursday to discuss the allegations leveled against him by Dr. Christine Ford. Many felt his appearance and testimony showed how horrible the entire ordeal has been for the Kavanaugh family.
After the grilling of Judge Kavanaugh and the prosecutor's questions of Dr. Ford, many were anxious to hear the responses from the sitting Senators regarding their statements. Few expected the powerful moment that ensued when Lindsey Graham took the floor.
Watch the amazing moment in the video below.
Conservatives around the country took to social media to praise Graham. Some news outlets even reported that Graham's speech was a turning point for the hearing.
"Enter Graham. Unlike his Republican colleagues before him, Graham, a former member of the Air Force's Judge Advocate General corps, didn't cede his five minutes of questioning to Mitchell. He seized it -- and with an impassioned attack that displayed his clear anger, frustration and impatience with both the process and the Democrats sharing the dais with him, he gave Republicans from the White House on down a shock to the system -- a wake-up call that fundamentally altered the remainder of the Kavanaugh hearing," reported CNN.
One of Graham's most powerful lines came when discussing the way he feels the Democrats have tried to use the hearing and allegations to destroy Kavanaugh. His words were quickly printed online and circulated on social media thousands of times.
"'What you want to do is destroy this guy's life, hold this seat open, and hope you win in 2020,' Graham angrily accused his Democratic colleagues. 'To my Republican colleagues, if you vote 'no', you're legitimizing the most despicable thing that I have seen in my time in politics.'"
