During a session with reporters Thursday, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., snapped at a woman protesting Brett Kavanaugh’s potential nomination to the Supreme Court.
The woman shouted at Graham that Kavanaugh should submit to a polygraph test regarding allegations of sexual misconduct he faces.

Graham turned around, looked at the woman, and shot back: “Why don’t we dunk him in water and see if he floats?”
Protests have erupted on and around Capitol Hill on Thursday with news that the Senate plans to vote on confirming Kavanaugh within the next several days.
Graham has been a strong and vocal supporter of Kavanaugh throughout his nomination process and during Senate Judiciary Committee hearings regarding the allegations.
“You’ve humiliated this guy enough,” Graham told the protester. “And there seems to be no bottom for some of you.”
