Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh apologized last week to Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar following an exchange at the Senate Judiciary Committee.

But according to South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, it's Klobuchar who should have been the one issuing the apology.

Speaking with Sean Hannity on Fox News Tuesday evening, Graham denounced last week's proceedings, which saw senators question Kavanaugh and Dr. Christine Blasey Ford over her allegation of attempted sexual assault.

Graham said Ford "has been used an abused" by the Democratic Party, saying: "My beef is with the fact that they’ve done everything they can do to destroy her life,."

As for Klobuchar, Graham was not happy that Kavanaugh apologized for how he responded when the Minnesota senator asked if he had ever blacked out from too much drinking, asking her: "Have you?"

"This is the one that bothers me the most," Graham said. "He apologized to Amy Klobuchar for snapping at her.

"What would you do if you were accused of all these things? Here’s what I think, Amy Klobuchar should apologize to Judge Kavanaugh and his family for being part of a smear campaign I haven’t seen in over 20 years in politics.”

Here's the line:

Sen. Klobuchar hasn't responded to Graham's comments as of Wednesday morning.

Graham has become one of Kavanaugh's staunchest defenders in the Senate, and indeed one of President Donald Trump's biggest supporters since he took office.
