Cory Booker Has Not Yet Called For FBI Investigation Into Allegations of Sexual Assault Against Him
A Democrat Senator from New Jersey is ducking allegations of sexual assault levied against him by a man over the weekend, just weeks after demanding an FBI investigation into unprovable sexual assault claims against now Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
An extraordinarily detailed letter accusing Sen. Corey Booker (D-N.J.) was released on Twitter Saturday. It reads:
I stopped to use one of the building’s single-occupancy restrooms. Upon washing my hands prior to leaving, I hear knocking on the door. When it comes to these restrooms, it is customary to knock first in case someone is using it, even though there is an inner lock. When I opened the door, Mr. Booker was there. He smiled and very gregariously said, “Hey!” We engaged in some brief idle chitchat in the entryway and then he asked me to speak in private. What happened next, happened so fast that it was hard for me to comprehend what was going on. It was one of those surreal moments where what was happening was such a deviation and such a perversion of one’s natural daily routine that I hardly knew how to react. He pulled me into the bathroom, albeit not too forcefully, and slowly pushed me against the restroom wall. He said that “Being a hero was a serious turn-on.” He continued, “The Senate appreciates fine citizens like you. Especially this senator.” He then put his left hand on my groin, over my jeans, and began to rub. I seem to remember saying something like “What is happening?” It was a bit like having vertigo. He then used his other hand to grab my left hand with his right and pulled it over to touch him. At the same time, he disengaged from rubbing me and used his left hand to push me to my knees from my shoulder for what was clearly a move to have me perform oral sex on him. At that point, I pulled away quite violently and told him I had to go. I did not see him again before he left.
These are serious allegations, and the alleged assault occurred while Booker was a duly elected member of the Senate.
Weeks ago, Booker called for an FBI investigation into sexual assault allegations against Kavananugh.
“I was encouraged by the good faith discussion with my judiciary colleagues earlier this afternoon, and Senator Jeff Flake in particular” Booker said on Twitter. “Per that discussion and in accordance with Senator Flake’s public request, it’s my hope that the Senate will take one week to conduct a full, fair and thorough investigation into the alleged allegations against Judge Kavanaugh.

It would only make sense that Booker would want a “full, fair and thorough” investigation into the accusations levied against him, too. But instead, he is putting the Democrat double-standard on full display. He has not even addressed the allegations publicly, let alone discussed possible repercussions.
After numerous attempts to contact Booker’s office, he did not respond to Big League Politics’ comment requests seeking to find out whether the Senator will encourage federal law enforcement to engage in an investigation into his accuser’s allegations.
