WASHINGTON, DC — In a stunt designed to buoy his nascent, shadow presidential campaign, Save Jerseyans, an increasingly unhinged U.S. Senator Cory Booker (D-Twitter) said he was prepared to break U.S. Senate rules by releasing ‘committee confidential’ documents on Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s executive branch tenure during Thursday’s confirmation hearing.
If the documents were still classified committee confidential?
He could’ve faced expulsion from the Senate for his behavior.
“I openly invite and accept the consequences of releasing that email right now,” Booker said during the hearing. “The emails are being withheld from the public have nothing to do with national security.”
But Booker wasn’t playing the hero.
“We cleared the documents last night shortly after Senator Booker’s staff asked us to. We were surprised to learn about Senator Booker’s histrionics this morning because we had already told him he could use the documents publicly. In fact, we have said yes to every request made by the Senate Democrats to make documents public,” said Bill Burck, former President George W. Bush’s records representative, after Booker’s Thursday meltdown.
The e-mails, by the way, were thin anyway; nothing that would interest anyone other than the most devoted constitutional law nerd.
What matters for the rest of us? I don’t care whether you’re right, left, center or somewhere NOT on the ideological slide-scale:
How long are we going to continue letting this moron embarrass us on the national stage? All as a part of a grasping attempt to launch a presidential campaign?
Forget “beneath a Senator”; his behavior throughout these hearings, and in the months leading up to him, are beneath a Kindergartner. You can’t pretend to be offended by President Trump’s coarse candor and NOT care about… this? Not without lying to yourself and doing your home state quite a bit of harm in the process.
