According to CNN political director David Chalian, Sens. Kamala Harris (D-CA) and Cory Booker (D-NJ) are trying to weaponize the Supreme Court confirmation hearings of Judge Brett Kavanaugh ahead of their speculated 2020 presidential campaigns. Speaking on ‘Newsroom’ Chalian said, “Kamala Harris in questioning Kavanaugh late last night had a moment that went viral…Her potential 2020 rival, Cory Booker, who sits next to her on the panel, comes out swinging this morning saying, ‘I’m breaking Senate rules. This is my only chance to have a Spartacus moment.” The trouble is it’s really difficult to discern when Democrats are posturing for advantage ahead of an election or if they’re just being Democrats. The circus in the hearings is either a sign that 2020 is kicking into gear or that it was a Thursday.

She got a lot of attention for it in the overnight hours about questioning him about any comments he had with a lawyer or a member of a law firm about the Mueller investigation, indicating she knows there’s something there. Her potential 2020 rival, Cory Booker, who sits next to her on the panel, comes out swinging this morning saying, ‘I’m breaking Senate rules.
