Booker Accuses Reporter Of Violating Constitution For Questioning Him

Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) accused a Wall Street Journal reporter on Thursday of “violating the Constitution” by asking him a question related to the debacle that he created by lying during Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing.

Booker, in a political stunt, had claimed that he was breaking Senate rules by releasing “confidential” Kavanaugh emails. However, Booker’s claim was quickly debunked by multiple officials who said that records officials cleared Booker to release the emails after he made a request to do so.

After Booker was caught lying about the whole ordeal, WSJ reporter Byron Tau asked Booker if his debunked claims were a political stunt.

Booker responded by accusing him of violating the Constitution:

“We cleared the documents last night shortly after Senator Booker’s staff asked us to,” said Bill Burck, George W. Bush’s presidential records representative. “We were surprised to learn about Senator Booker’s histrionics this morning because we had already told him he could use the documents publicly. In fact, we have said yes to every request made by the Senate Democrats to make documents public.”

Then, during embarrassing CNN and MSNBC interviews on Thursday night, Booker bragged about how he thought he was breaking the rules by releasing the emails that he was cleared to release.

It is worth noting that CNN’s Brian Stelter, who regularly bemoans any criticism of the press made by Republicans, did not mention Booker’s lies during the confirmation or Booker’s accusation against Tau in his “Reliable Sources” newsletter.

    Will be so happy when all this lying and corruption come to a end. These people do not belong in Washington. They need to be voted out. They are a disgrace to America.
