As Twitchy told you, Cory Booker’s “Spartacus” was revealed to be an even bigger sham than we initially thought. We couldn’t wait to see how Booker would try to dig himself out of that grave.
Well, now we know, and it’s as pathetic as we’ve come to expect from him:

(The way practiced hands at legalistic parsing and Capitol Hill spin know to read this: he indeed knew that the docs were cleared for release. My God, Booker is such a self-defeating fool.) https://t.co/NWjPUaizp1
