Can You Believe This Guy!? Booker’s ‘Spartacus’ Was Just A Parade – Now He’s Preparing For One UNTHINKABLE Move

Share this:

Remember the grandstanding and “I am Spartacus” moment from Senator Cory Booker last week during the Kavanaugh hearings? There was talk that he was doing all of this because he’s planning on running in 2020. If you had any doubts, you might not after you read this clip from  The Guardian:

According to multiple sources, Cory Booker has placed four staffers on the ground in Iowa, helping Democratic candidates, as he moves to position himself for a potential presidential bid.

The New Jersey senator has long been mooted as a presidential possibility in 2020. This week he raised his national profile by daring Senate Republicans to bring ethics charges against him for releasing documents related to the supreme court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh.

He was rebuked by Grassley and then Cornyn but then said, “Bring it, bring it”.

Booker followed up that bravado with this comment: “This is about the closest I’ll probably ever have in my life to an, ‘I am Spartacus’ moment.”

During his grandstanding moment, that was carefully orchestrated for the cameras, the 2020 presidential hopeful was warned by Senator Cornyn to not break the committee rules, and release the documents as Booker was threatening,  warning him that such an action could cause him to be removed from his position as a US Senator.

Senate Rule XXIX (29) Section 5, which Booker may be subject to for releasing Kavanuagh email: “Any Senator..who shall disclose the secret or confidential business or proceedings of the Senate..shall be liable, if a Senator, to suffer expulsion from the body”

Booker declared to the Senators in the room that he was prepared to lose his position for the breaking of rules: “I am, right now, before your process is finished — I am going to release the email about racial profiling. I understand that the penalty comes with potential ousting from the Senate.”

Soon after the grandstanding moment, Booker’s team released the documents.

The fury over the documents led to a letdown for Democrats. The documents only demonstrated that in 2002, soon after the 9/11 attacks, Kavanaugh was against the racial profiling of people while working for the Bush White House. Kavanaugh told colleagues in the email that he favors “effective security measures that are race-neutral” for airports, and he is against “race-based” remedies for law enforcement in the aftermath of the attack. –Daily Caller

Here’s Booker’s tweet, where he released the documents that only served to boost the reputation of President Trump’s pick for our next US Supreme Court Justice:

Booker was roundly mocked on social media for his bloviating epic fail:

Twitter user Joe Savilla responded to Booker’s release of the emails by telling him, “I look forward to the Senate moving to remove you from your seat.”

Another Twitter suggested that Savilla not get his hopes up, as 67 votes are necessary to remove a Senator.

Savilla replied: Regardless if it happens or not, it’s the principal of the action to move for removal. Sen. Booker violated the rules, intentionally and knowingly. We, society must follow rules and laws. Senators should as well.
