Kavanaugh had stressed his adherence to this principle at the beginning of the hearing, arguing the standard was key to preserving his judicial independence should he be confirmed, and reiterated those sentiments to Feinstein.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., commented on Booker's defiance. "If you're coming after @SenBooker for releasing these documents, count me in".
