Of course that’s not the point! Senator Cory “Spartacus” Booker (D-NJ) made clear his beliefs in a Tuesday press conference that SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh should not be confirmed as the next Justice based on guilt or innocence but rather on his display of anger over being accused of sexual assault. Quoth Booker: such “temperament” and “language” disqualify Kavanaugh from serving as part of the “sacred institution.” “[T]he people who are on the Supreme Court should preserve the integrity of the court and be beyond the reproach of these difficult partisan times.” Which begs we ask Booker, whose own temperament and language have been questionable over the course of his entire tenure in the senate, whether truth matters at all. But of course it’s only relevant when it serves his political interest.
Here’s more from The Daily Wire…
Democratic Senator Cory Booker admitted in a press conference on Tuesday that his belief that Brett Kavanaugh should not be confirmed to the Supreme Court has nothing to do with whether he is “innocent or guilty.” The very fact that his name has been sullied by uncorroborated allegations and that he displayed anger at being accused without evidence and pushed back against the politically-motivated handling of the allegations by Democrat senators, Booker argued, “ultimately” disqualifies Kavanaugh from a lifetime appointment to the “sacred institution.”
With the FBI investigation close to wrapping up and most expecting that it will confirm what has already been publicly revealed in sworn statements to the Senate — that the named witnesses by Ford all either deny any knowledge of the alleged incident or directly refute it — the New Jersey senator said that, in the end, it doesn’t matter if Kavanaugh is innocent or guilty, just that his “credibility has been challenged” enough by supposed “intimates” of Kavanaugh from high school — despite the dozens of Kavanaugh’s female friends from that period who have publicly vouched for his good character.
