Senator Cory Booker hinted at the Democrats’ potential plot to block President Trump’s future Supreme Court Pick Friday, saying the White House should only nominate a candidate after the Mueller probe wraps up.
Booker was speaking with MSNBC when he was asked to weigh-in on Justice Anthony Kennedy’s recent retirement announcement, saying Trump should wait because he’s still the “subject of a criminal investigation.”
“This president is the subject of a criminal investigation,” Booker said. “Here you have a president that’s making a whole lot of loyalty tests and other things from people.”
“Should that person be able to right now, while this criminal investigation’s going on, be allowed to make an appointment? I say no,” Booker added.
BOOKER BREAKDOWN: Cory GOES NUCLEAR, Says Releasing FISA MEMO ‘Treasonous’
New Jersey Senator Cory Booker continued his all-out anti-Trump rampage this week, saying he believes that releasing the House Intelligence Committee’s FISA memo would be “tantamount to treason” and jeopardizes the lives of those in the intelligence community.
The liberal legislator was speaking with SiriusXM when he made the outlandish remarks, adding that GOP lawmakers who wish to release the classified material are “betraying” the men and women who work to keep our country safe.
“This fury and fire that has been created around this, is to me tantamount to a dangerous conspiracy theory that can undermine the important work our Justice Department and intelligence communities do,” said Booker.
“I might say tantamount to treasonous in the sense of -when you violate the intelligence community’s mandate around classified documentation and what should be released- you could be betraying, or especially if you’re revealing sources and methods, you are actually endangering fellow Americans in the intelligence community,” he added.
“To me, this is something that could be potentially viewed as treasonous,” said Booker.

BOOKER GOES NUCLEAR: Cory Compares DHS Secretary to NAZIS, Trump to HITLER
New Jersey Senator Cory Booker continued his non-stop rampage against President Trump’s “tough talk” on immigration reform on Friday, breathlessly claiming DHS Secretary Nielsen was enabling Trump’s “racism,” adding “we know what happened in Europe” when leaders acted this way.
Booker was speaking with “The Breakfast Club” radio program when he was asked to comment on his recent rant against Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, where he “cried tears of rage” and labeled the DHS boss as “complicit” in Trump’s “racism.”
“People who stood by and did nothing when they hear bigotry are complicit in that bigotry. We know this from history and we know this from recent experiences in our communities, and it’s outrageous to see it in the highest office in the land,” said Booker.
“I don’t care who you are […] If you come after Jews, if you come after Muslims, if you come after Haitians, El Salvadorians, come after my fellow American citizens, I will not tolerate it,” he added.
“She should be the same way as opposed to just doing her job. We know what happened in Europe when people just did their jobs,” said the Senator.
