Kirsters Baish| As you are probably already aware if you follow politics, Democratic Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey is a part of the Senate Judiciary Committee that is responsible for questioning Supreme Court Justice Nominee Brett Kavanaugh on his record. Interestingly enough, Booker is also a possible 2020 presidential candidate for the Democratic Party. And, according to Booker, he is also similar to Spartacus. Although, his Spartacus moment never actually came.
Take a look at the video below for some background into what we are referring to:
“I will say that I did willingly violate the chair’s rule on the committee confidential process,” Booker said in the hearing room.
He continued, “I take full responsibility for violating that, sir. And I violate it because I sincerely believe that the public deserves to know this nominee’s record. And in this particular case, his record on issues of race and the law. And I could not understand, and I violated this rule knowingly, why these issues should be withheld from the public. Now, I appreciate the comments of my colleagues. This is about the closest I’ll probably ever have in my life to an ‘I am Spartacus’ moment.”
The thing is that Booker is a liar. Seung Min Kim wroteTwitter, “NEW statement from Bill Burck, GWB’s records representative who led the review of Kavanaugh’s records.” She attached the image of a quote reading, “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 face, we have said yes to every request made by the Senate Democrats to make documents public.”

Conservative Tribune writes on the matter:
…This is a bit like William Jennings Bryan dramatically telling the 1896 Democrat convention, “You shall not crucify mankind upon a cross of gold!” getting a standing ovation, and then someone casually striding up to the podium and informing the crowd the gold standard had been abandoned some time ago and we were all on fiat currency now. Except picture the entire convention laughing at Bryan to begin with and then laughing harder when he got proven wrong.
It’s fairly hilarious the way all of these potential 2020 Democratic candidates keep embarrassing themselves on such public platforms. It was just earlier in the week that Senator Kamala Harris made herself look like a fool when she badgered Kavanaugh repeatedly about Special Counsel Robert Mueller, only to find out that Kavanaugh had worked with him. It’s time for these Democrats to sit down and let the White House deal with the big issues.
