Senator Cory Booker had his self-described “Spartacus moment” early when he said he would defy a Senate rule by releasing confidential documents related to Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Not long after having that potential footage for his 2020 campaign ad captured on tape, Sen. Spartacus then backtracked and claimed the rule he admitted to defying does not in fact exist:
Senator Cory Booker boldly declared he is knowingly violating Senate rules.
30 minutes after his grandstanding for the cameras, Booker says he didn’t violate any Senate rules.https://t.co/9DLlgapDxM

We’re not sure if Spartacus or T-Bone had more to do with Booker’s reversal.
I said I will break the rule and accept the consequences before I said there was not a rule. Brilliant! Spartacus!
