Full title: Confidential Kavanaugh emails posted by Cory Booker were cleared, despite dramatic claim of defying rules
In yet another bizarre turn of events at Brett Kavanaughs Supreme Court confirmation hearing, Republicans have revealed that documents Democratic Sen. Cory Booker published Thursday morning in supposed defiance of Senate rules had already been cleared for release.
All of this drama this morning apparently was for nothing and its unfortunate, Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, told reporters after a chaotic start to the third day of Kavanaughs hearing.
Earlier Thursday, Booker dramatically said he would knowingly violate Senate rules to release emails marked "committee confidential" that showed Kavanaugh discussing racial profiling as a White House lawyer in 2002. Booker referred to his actions as an act of civil disobedience and said he was prepared to face punishment.
I am going to release the e-mail about racial profiling and I understand that the penalty comes with potential ousting from the Senate, said Booker, a possible 2020 Democratic candidate for president.
At another point, Booker said, This is about the closest I'll probably ever have in my life to an, I am Spartacus moment.
But it turns out, Booker didnt actually break any rules. The Republicans on the Judiciary Committee said they worked with the George W. Bush library and the Justice Department overnight to clear the emails. The restrictions were waived early Thursday morning.

Thats very sad, what a waste of the countrys’ time.
He sure is, in everything he does.
Tucker Carlson nneds to get hold of this guy on his show, that would be entertainment.
T Bone Part Two!
Love the fact that Corey is such a STUPID liar, so easily busted for his lies.
Support Free Republic, Folks!
All hail...’Spartacus’ Booker.
I can see the campaign now.
Cory Booker. Drama queen,
Booker’s a buffoon - best I can say is I didn’t vote for him.....
so does that make Booker a liar? Would I be a racist if I called him a liar???
Drama Queens find him embarrassing!
Liar liar panties on fire!
I would rather see a "THIS IS SPARTA" moment where Booker plays the part of the ambassador to Sparta, and Trump is the one who kicks him into the black hole.
He is quite the drama queen. Quite the faux outrage queen. Can picture him practicing different looks in the mirror.
Low IQ senator vs a high IQ nominee.
