Cory Booker dodges CNN, MSNBC questions on publicity stunt, I am Spartacus lies during Kavanaugh confirmation

Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) dodges questions from CNN and MSNBC on Thursday after he was caught in his apparent lie earlier in the day about documents he released that were connected to Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation hearing.

His “I am Spartacus” moment has gone bust after claiming that that he was breaking Senate rules by releasing “confidential” Kavanaugh emails.

Not only did the move completely backfire as the documents showed that Kavanaugh opposed racial profiling and racial bias, officials revealed that they had cleared the emails for Booker to release at his request and that they gave him the green light to release them.

We cleared the documents last night shortly after Senator Booker’s staff asked us to,” said Bill Burck, George W. Bush’s presidential records representative. “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.”

In an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Booker refused to answer whether or not he knew that the documents were released before pulling his stunt.

Booker bragged that he was taught growing up that he has “an obligation” to “stand against” what he deems to be “unjust” laws. Booker then repeatedly bragged about how he thinks he violated the rules of the Senate, even though he didn’t.

Check out the clip below.

In an interview with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, Booker repeatedly dodged questions on whether he knew that the documents were cleared to be released before this stunt.

Booker also accused a Wall Street Journal reporter on Thursday of “violating the Constitution” by asking him a question related to the debacle.

It’s clear that Booker was posturing to the leftists in his base for a possible 2020 presidential bid.

RNC chair Ronna McDaniel tweeted a hilarious response to another member, framing Booker as a petulant child.
