Staffer releases GOP senators’ personal information to intimidate following Kavanaugh hearing

By Peter Hasson

An unknown person located in the House of Representatives on Thursday posted the personal information of Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, as well as Mike Lee and Orrin Hatch of Utah.

All three senators sit on the Senate Judiciary Committee, and their personal information was posted shortly after each questioned Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh during Thursday’s hearing.

“They appear to be targeting Republican members of the committee after they question Judge Kavanaugh,” a Hatch spokesman told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

The staffer noted the change revealed Hatch’s home address and that Thursday was the senator’s wife’s birthday.

The changes were immediately highlighted by a watchdog account that monitors Wikipedia changes made using IP addresses located in the House.

A Lee staffer confirmed the senator’s home address in Utah and personal cell phone number were posted to the public page.

A spokeswoman for Graham did not immediately return TheDCNF’s request for comment. The information posted on Wikipedia and Twitter matched with a listed personal address for Graham.

Wikipedia appears to have removed the changes.

Graham delivered a fiery criticism of Senate Democrats shortly before his personal information was posted, a technique known as “doxxing.”

“What you want to do is destroy this guy’s life, hold this seat open, and hope you win in 2020,” Graham told Senate Judiciary Democrats.

“You’ve said that. Not me. You’ve got nothing to apologize for. When you see Sotomayor and Kagan, tell them that Lindsey said ‘hello’ because I voted for them. I would never do to them what you’ve done to this guy,” the senator said.

Other Republican Senate offices have already faced a deluge of threats meant to intimidate their votes on Kavanaugh.

  1. Unbelievable as to what this nation is becoming. These liberals have no boundaries. They will do or say anything to crush the conservatives and it’s getting worse. They are an embarrassment to our nation and the rest of the world.

  2. When wavering Republicans see how their fellow Republicans are being treated by the shameless Democrats, they should stand tall and vote with their party on this important hearing. They know that Brett Kavanaugh is an exemplary jurist, and they should not let the Democrats scare them into voting against his nomination.

  3. I hope that these Republican senators open up the “Wrath of God” on these liberal fools, time to turn the table. Follow the Money, you’ll get your answer, now this needs an “FBI” Investigation and then lower the hammer. Liberal DemocRATS, what a sorry bunch.

  4. The Democrats have opened a great big ugly box, and it’s going to come back to bite them and any of their children who may have political ambitions in the future. It’s unfortunate none of them have the mental capacity to see where this will go.
