Cory Booker: Doesn’t Matter if He’s ‘Innocent or Guilty,’ Kavanaugh Should Be Beyond ‘Reproach’

Senator Cory Booker (D-N.J.) claims that having strong emotional reactions could be grounds to disqualify Judge Brett Kavanaugh from serving on the Supreme Court.

During a press conference on Tuesday, Booker said that Kavanaugh should not be confirmed, regardless of the conclusion of the FBI investigation.

“Ultimately — not whether he’s innocent or guilty, this is not a trial … have enough questions been raised that we should not move on to another candidate?” said Booker.

The senator questioned if the uncorroborated accusations against Kavanaugh were enough to deny him a seat on the Supreme Court. He also brought up Kavanaugh’s emotional testimony and labeled it as shocking.

“Is this the right person to sit on the highest court in the land for a lifetime appointment — when their credibility has been challenged by intimates, people that knew the candidate well as a classmate, when his temperament has been revealed in an emotional moment where he used language that, frankly, shocked a lot of us?” asked Booker.

Watch:

Booker finished by claiming that those on the Supreme Court cannot make any wrong decisions.

“This is a sacred institution, and the people who should be on it — whether you disagree with their political or judicial philosophy at all — the people who are on the Supreme Court should preserve the integrity of the court and be beyond the reproach of these difficult partisan times,” said Booker.

However, Booker himself has admitted to forcing himself onto a young woman in high school and being drunk at parties. The question is not if Kavanaugh has integrity, but whether unproved situations and arguably typical college behavior for some should disqualify him from the Supreme Court.

Beyond reproach IS innocence. So yes, it does matter if he is innocent.

What about when Spartacus was ripping, screaming and hollering at Nikki Haley. I thought his eyes were going to pop out of his head. Double Standard strikes again.

Having his name drugged through the mud and back, false accusations of sexual assault, his wife and kids going through hell and recieving death threats, I would say he has held his temperament pretty well. He’s a better man than I am cause I would have already knocked the shit out of Corey Booker.
