Flaming: Sen. Cory Booker comes in hot at Homeland Security Sec’y in fiery tirade

Published

on

The junior senator from New Jersey shocked Capitol Hill Tuesday with his over-the-top ranting at Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen during her testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Sen. Cory A. Booker (D.-N.J.), a bachelor, went after Nielsen with a hostility that is rarely seen with female witnesses, while concentrating on the secretary’s assertion that she did not hear President Donald J. Trump used a swear word to refer to developing countries.

The senator told those in at the hearing, that when Sen. Richard J. Durbin (D.-Ill.) told him his version of the president’s remarks he wept.

“I hurt,” he said. “When Dick Durbin called me, I had tears of rage in my eyes.”

Booker said that the secretary was callous if she did not share the senator’s emotional crisis.

“For you not to feel that hurt and pain and to dismiss some of the questions of my colleagues saying: ‘I’ve already answered that line of questions,’ when tens of millions of Americans are hurting right now, because you are worried what happened in the White House? That’s unacceptable to me,” he said.

The senator then told the secretary of homeland security that he is anxious about threats against his own life: “There are threats in this country people are plotting–I receive enough death threats to know the reality.”

Like other Democrats, Booker also accused Nielson of lying under oath when she repeated that she had not heard the comments that Durbin attributed to the president.

Wednesday, Nielsen released this statement regarding Senate Democrats, led by Booker, accusing her of perjury: “I decline to spend any more of my time responding other than to say the obvious — I did not and will not lie under oath and say I heard something I didn’t.”

PATHETIC: National Guard Booted to Parking Lot After Democrat Congressman Complained They Weren’t Wearing Masks

The Democrat complained about masks.

New reports suggest that a detachment of National Guard personnel present in Washington, DC for Inauguration duties were kicked out of their spartan lodging in the Capitol to a parking lot after a Democrat Congressman complained that one of the guardsmen wasn’t wearing a mask at a Dunkin’ Donuts inside the Capitol.

Breitbart News has learned that Massachusetts Democrat Will Keating reported that he encountered a soldier at the Capitol without a mask. When Keating told the guardsman to wear a mask, the service member told Keating, “I appreciate my freedom.”

This event reportedly led to the entire National Guard detachment being kicked out of their lodging inside a Capitol lobby to an outdoor parking lot, where they were exposed to freezing temperatures.

Keating has declined to comment on the exchange, with reports suggesting he reported the incident to Capitol Police. This led to the Guard being booted outside as a punishment.

Yesterday dozens of senators and congressmen walked down our lines taking photos, shaking our hands and thanking us for our service. Within 24 hours, they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of a parking garage. We feel incredibly betrayed,” one Guard member told Politico about being kicked to the curb.

Establishment Democrats had been eager to use the military service members as political props, even after a fiasco in which they were caught trying to purge conservative-leaning Guard personnel for insufficiently loyalty to the Biden government. Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida and Greg Abbott of Texas recalled the detachments of their state National Guards from DC following the second incident of disrespect to the troops, with the former rejecting the idea of FL Guard members being utilized as Nancy Pelosi’s personal servants.
