Sen. Cory Booker openly defied Senate rules during Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing this week; announcing his plan to intentionally leak a prior email exchange from his time as a lawyer for President George W. Bush.
Booker exploded during Kavanaugh’s confirmation process over an email surrounding “racial profiling,” saying his office will publicly leak the message knowing it could result from a “potential ousting from the Senate.”

“When this process is finished I’m going to release the email about racial profiling. I understand that the penalty comes with potential ousting from the Senate,” said Booker.
“If Sen. Cornyn believes that I’ve violated Senate rules then I openly invite and accept the consequences,” he added.
