    Once upon a time, Corey Anthony Booker seemed like a statesman. As mayor of Newark, New Jersey, he talked to everybody, made deals, comported himself with dignity. He stood out from the pack; he was seen as an up-and-comer. Yet move him to the Senate and place him in front of national cameras? He has become something of a loon. This is about the closest Ill probably ever have in my life to an I am Spartacus moment, he said, referring to his leakage of confidential information about Supreme Court nominee Brett Michael Kavanaugh during this weeks hearings. Say what?...

    While the chaos and disruption from Democrats during Judge Brett Kavanaughs Supreme Court confirmation hearing has sparked derision and mockery from Republicans and some media commentators, some on the party's liberal wing think Democratic leadership is not doing enough. Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., interrupted Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, within seconds of the hearing beginning on Tuesday, setting the scene for a chaotic few days that included a number of theatrical displays -- including a regular stream of protesters being dragged from the public gallery. Sen. Cory Booker, D-NJ, dared Republicans to have him expelled for releasing committee confidential...

    Fresh from his preposterous antics in the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the Kavanaugh nomination to the Supreme Court in which he characterized himself as a "Spartacus fighting against tyranny," Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) brushed aside Wall Street Journal reporter Byron Tau's attempt to ask him a question about it, asserting that "it is unconstitutional for anyone to question me about anything I said in Congress in any other place." Booker's heroic moment came when he made a show of releasing what he called "wrongly classified documents that Republicans are trying to hide from the American people. I know that...

    Sen. Cory Booker claimed Thursday that a journalist with The Wall Street Journal was violating the Constitution by asking him a question regarding his failed Spartacus moment before the Senate Judiciary Committee. The New Jersey lawmaker who made national headlines with his assertion that he was releasing confidential documents on Judge Brett Kavanaugh (which turned out not to be confidential), was in no mood to answer Byron Taus questions on it. Mr. Booker seemingly referenced a Speech or Debate Clause of the Constitution to dodge a question on political theatrics. Democrats knew full well that the documents that Booker and...

    If only Sen. Cory Booker had insisted on having an I am T-Bone moment at the Senate confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. It would have truly been heroic, with supporters of the Democratic presidential hopeful from New Jersey shouting that they, too, were T-Bone, the name of Bookers imaginary drug dealer friend from the mean streets of Newark. I am T-Bone! No, I am T-Bone! Sadly, Booker didnt want to play T-Bone on national TV. So, he became Spartacus. This is about the closest Ill probably ever have in my life to an I am Spartacus moment,...

    Democratic senators put on quite a show Thursday at Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing. Desperate for a "gotcha" moment that would disqualify the Trump nominee, the senators asked pointed questions and gave lectures about transparency. But, they embarrassed themselves in the process. Sen. Cory Booker (NJ) got the loudest laugh.Booker's theatrics came at the very beginning of the hearing. He interrupted Chairman Chuck Grassley's opening remarks to announce that he had broken Senate rules and released "committee confidential" documents about Kavanaugh's opinions on racial profiling. He even referred to himself as "Spartacus," as if he was some kind of...

    It started out as brilliant political bad-assery: U.S. Sen. Cory Booker warned his colleagues on the Senate judiciary committee vetting U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh that he would violate Senate rules and release a confidential document about the federal judge's views on racial profiling. "The fact that there's nothing in that document that's personal information, nothing national security related, the fact that it was labeled 'committee confidential' exposes that this process is a bit of a sham," said Booker, throwing shade at U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, the chairman. Then Booker, a New Jersey Democrat, really threw down, challenging...

    Well, its clear that Democrat Sen. Cory Booker is already running for President in 2020. He made a spectacle of himself today at the Confirmation Hearing of Brett Kavanaugh for the U.S. Supreme Court. Booker made a big show of releasing Committee Confidential documents pertaining to Kavanaugh, saying he was willing to suffer the consequences of doing so. But as it turns out, Booker was told last night the documents in question were being made public! Booker flat out lied this morning as he put on his drama queen show for the cameras. Even CNNs Brooke Baldwin called Booker out...

    An attempt by loudmouth liberal Sen. Cory Booker to hijack Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaughs confirmation hearing Thursday blew up in his face big time. It all started when the obnoxious New Jersey Democrat threatened to commit an act of civil disobedience by releasing a confidential Kavanaugh email. I am going to release the e-mail about racial profiling and I understand that the penalty comes with potential ousting from the Senate, the arrogant senator, who had the gall to liken himself to Spartacus, bloviated during the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Thursday. While working for the administration of then-President George W....

    Day two of the Brett Kavanaugh hearings were once again riddled with theatrics. Guy will have a more in-depth analysis later, but let’s discuss Sen. Cory Booker’s nonsense stand to release documents supposedly relating to racial profiling that were deemed confidential. He called it his Spartacus moment. Give me a break—it was more 2020 posturing. He didn’t violate a Senate rule by doing this, which comes risks expulsion from the body, though he said he was willing to do so for the sake of the republic. There are not enough eyes to roll on this one. This set off more...

    In a dramatic interaction during Senate Judiciary Committee hearings on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to serve on the Supreme Court on Thursday morning, Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) deliberately violated rules against releasing protected information, risking, in his own estimation, the loss of his position. Here's why he did so and what's likely to happen as a result. At issue are documents provided to the committee before the hearing process began. (Kavanaugh must be approved by the committee before his nomination can be sent to the full Senate for full confirmation.) Booker took issue with how and when some...

    Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) on Thursday released emails from Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's time as a White House counsel, escalating a heated fight over his documents. Booker released approximately 12 pages of emails tied to discussions Kavanaugh had on racial inequality including one email thread titled "racial profiling." The documents are marked "committee confidential," meaning they are not supposed to be discussed or released publicly. But the move comes after Booker said during a heated debate on Kavanaugh's third day before the Judiciary Committee that he would release the email thread. "I am right now, before your process is...

    Sen. Cory Booker said he is prepared to “knowingly violate” Senate rules and release an email from Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Booker, D-N.J., said during Thursday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing that it is “civil disobedience” that the email from when he served as a lawyer for former President George W. Bush is not available for the public. The email with the subject line “racial profiling,” Booker said, shows that Kavanaugh was sympathetic to racial profiling by police. “I knowingly violated the rules that were put forth,” Booker said of his handling of committee confidential information. “If Sen. Cornyn believes...
