Remember during the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings when Sen. Cory Booker announced he was going to release committee confidential documents even though breaking the rules might cost him his Senate seat? It didn’t matter: opposing Kavanaugh was too important.
Among those not impressed by Booker’s stunt were the folks at Judicial Watch, who filed a Senate ethics complaint against him.
"Government watchdog Judicial Watch filed an ethics complaint against Democrat Senator Cory Booker for deliberately breaking Senate rules & releasing confidential Senate Judiciary Committee documents for political gain."

Gee, for political gain … you think so?
In any case, Spartacus will not be intimidated into silence:
I will continue releasing so-called ‘committee confidential’ docs because it is important that American people see Kavanaugh’s entire record. No effort to intimidate me into silence will keep me from my moral & Constitutional duty. https://t.co/Yptiy4q0W4

Everything you've released about the man has helped him.
Carry on, Spartacus. https://t.co/1K6vXvuGxS

Imagine your surprise when Kavanaugh still gets confirmed https://t.co/8kEeBMAxND

We’re sure Booker will calmly accept the Senate vote to confirm and show Justice Kavanaugh the respect he deserves.
WOW: Even Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg thinks Senate's handling of Kavanaugh confirmation is wrong https://t.co/yI07YYghG8
