To much fanfare, Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) on Thursday released emails from Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s time as a White House counsel, escalating a heated fight over his documents.
Booker released approximately 12 pages of emails tied to discussions Kavanaugh had on racial inequality including one email thread titled “racial profiling.”
The documents are marked “committee confidential,” meaning they were not to be discussed or released publicly.
Booker claimed he was risking “ousting from the Senate” by releasing the emails. But no such drama. Apparently Booker forgot to check his email yesterday morning – these emails had already been cleared — and Booker was risking nothing.
