A radical leftist Senator from New Jersey released confidential documents that only members of the Senate were privy to during the confirmation hearing for soon-to-be Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
“I’m saying I’m knowingly violating the rules, said Sen. Corey Booker (D-NJ). “Im saying right now that I’m releasing committee confidential documents.”
Booker was then blasted by fellow Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX).
“Running for president is no excuse for violating the rules of the Senate, or the confidentiality of the documents that we are privy to” Cornyn said, alluding to the fact that Booker is considering a 2020 presidential run. “This is no different from the Senator deciding to release classified information that is deemed classified by the executive branch because you happen to disagree with the classification decision. That is irresponsible and outrageous.”
The reaction to Booker’s decision was likewise fiery.
“Expel Cory Booker from the Senate,” said TPUSA founder Charlie Kirk.

@CoryBooker must be expelled from the US Senate. His actions today cannot and must not be tolerated. Mr. Booker has brought great shame upon himself,” said Fox News’ Todd Starnes.

Initial report regarding the contents of the documents indicate that they are not as explosive as Booker made them out to be. Grandstanding is indeed one of the greatest assets of elected officials.

Locked and Loaded: Pentagon Grants Soldiers in DC Power to use Lethal Force
The National Guard have been authorized to use lethal force, if needed.
Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy has authorized the twenty thousand National Guard members providing security around the U.S. Capitol to carry lethal weapons as Washington, D.C., braces for Inauguration Day.
“On January 12, 2021, National Guardsmen were given authorization to be armed in support of the U.S. Capitol Police to protect the U.S. Capitol and individual members of Congress and their staff,” according to a statement from the D.C. National Guard, which is commanding Guard forces in the city, including units deployed from six other states, to provide security for President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration next week,” the DC National Guard revealed in a statement “This was requested by federal authorities and authorized by the Secretary of the Army.”
The National Guard Bureau declined to specify what weapons troops would carry.
“National Guard members are postured to meet the requirements of the supported civil authorities, up to and including protective equipment and being armed if necessary,” said the statement. “The public’s safety is our top priority.”
Gen. Daniel R. Hokanson, chief of the National Guard Bureau, told media members on Monday that a force of up to 15,000 will deploy to D.C. with all their issued equipment, including their individual weapons. So if the need arises, “they are close by and they are readily accessible.”
The Pentagon initially authorized up to six thousand two hundred Guard members from Maryland, Virginia, New York, New Jersey, Delaware and Pennsylvania to deploy to D.C. on federal status to maintain security through Inauguration Day.
The history of National Guard members being a part of the presidential inauguration dates back to the first inauguration of President George Washington in 1789.
