Graham was one of Kavanaugh's most outspoken defenders and has remained so. 

He launched into a fiery speech in the midst of Kavanaugh's testimony regarding the allegations of sexual misconduct leveled against him.

A Senate Judiciary Committee report released last week said no evidence has been found to corroborate the accusations against Kavanaugh, which the Justice has passionately denied.

On Tuesday night, Graham retweeted a post by Frank Thorp, who quoted the Senator as saying, "The Kavanaugh-effect is real...I think the caravan was a nightmare for Trump-state democrats."
