As Twitchy told you, Cory Booker, aka “Spartacus,” was willing to put his job on the line in order to take down Brett Kavanaugh. Booker vowed to release confidential documents and dared his Senate colleagues to expel him.
Well, Booker released the documents, and they’re indeed damning. But not for Kavanaugh:
So the documents that Cory Booker violated committee rules to release shows that Kavanaugh rejected the use of race or national origin in airport security screening and law enforcement generally in the immediate aftermath of 9/11 https://t.co/aNIkqWeN01 pic.twitter.com/bhyBG17uz2

Democrats have all the Committee Confidential documents.
Booker's bombshell was to reveal that Kavanaugh was against racial profiling after 9/11.

This has tens of thousands of retweets – did anyone read the documents?
I suppose it's nice that left-wing twitter is so eager to promote the proof that Kavanaugh is against racial discrimination. https://t.co/WdxKCMRqEv

Another great victory for Sen. Booker!
Apparently…he…wanted more racial targeting?

This has to be a drip tactic, right? .. there’s got to be more… He can’t be this dumb, right?

Of course he can.
They continue to cause fake outrage only to shoot themselves in the foot. Keep it up please… #RealityIsStrangerThanFiction

Lo and behold! It looks like Booker didn’t really risk anything at all:
Grassley’s office says Booker and Hirono didn’t break the rules by releasing committee confidential documents about Kavanaugh; the GOP contends those documents were cleared for release before 4am today

'So, he's NOT Spartacus?' Looks like Cory Booker's grandstanding was an EVEN BIGGER joke than you thought https://t.co/7C2eppeDpY
