Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) on Wednesday released a new set of “confidential” documents from Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s White House tenure despite threats of an Ethics Committee investigation.
Booker released 50 new pages of emails, some of which have “committee confidential” stamped across the body of the email. Other pages have “committee confidential” written at the bottom of the email page.
The article goes on to state the following:
The designation means the documents, which were given to the Judiciary Committee, have not been cleared for public release.
It is the seventh batch of “committee confidential” documents Booker has released since late last week, saying he is breaking committee rules in the name of transparency.
Booker said the documents raise “more serious and concerning questions” about whether Kavanaugh was “honest” with Judiciary Committee members.
“These documents suggest Judge Kavanaugh misled the Senate Judiciary Committee during his prior testimony. This a grave and worrisome prospect given the fact that Judge Kavanaugh is up for a lifetime appointment to our nation’s highest court with the potential to change American law for decades to come,” Booker added.
Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas was asked about the politicization of the court and preserving its “legitimacy” while talking to the Federalist Society.
Thomas said justices need to be “honest,” and that they should “follow the law,” adding comments about being “honorable.”
Thomas said, “Honorable – if we could use that word about more people who are in public life, people who actually ask the questions at confirmation hearings, instead of ‘Spartacus’…”
Booker claimed to be “Spartacus” last week when he initially began releasing the “committee confidential” stamped documents, which were entrusted to the Senate Judiciary Committee by President George W. Bush’s presidential library on condition they be limited to members’ eyes.
I will continue releasing so-called ‘committee confidential’ docs because it is important that American people see Kavanaugh’s entire record. No effort to intimidate me into silence will keep me from my moral & Constitutional duty. https://t.co/Yptiy4q0W4
