Cory Booker Drops More Confidential Documents That Bust Kavanaugh For Lying Under Oath
The Democratic senator released more “committee confidential” documents on Wednesday exposing that Kavanaugh lied during a Senate Judiciary Committee testimony. The new emails released by the Senator bring the total number of released documents to 75.
According to a news release from Booker’s office, “The emails reveal that Kavanaugh’s involvement in the [controversial federal judge Charles Pickering’s] nomination was significant and far-reaching, calling into question how truthful he was in 2006 testimony he gave to the Senate Judiciary Committee, in which he seemed to indicate he wasn’t substantively involved in the Pickering nomination.”
Sen. Booker said, “These latest documents raise more serious and concerning questions about Judge Kavanaugh’s honesty before the Senate Judiciary Committee. It’s clear that Kavanaugh was far more involved than he previously claimed with the nomination of a controversial federal judge who once defended a state law banning interracial marriage and campaigned for an avowed segregationist.”
