Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell weighed-in on Sen. Cory Booker’s “unusual behavior” during Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings this week; saying he “wouldn’t be surprised” if there was an ethics inquiry into his bizarre antics.
McConnell was speaking with radio host Hugh Hewitt when he was asked to comment on Booker’s repeated assertions that he was “breaking the rules” by intentionally leaking Kavanaugh’s confidential emails.

Booker fired-back at McConnell over the possible ethics investigation, telling the leading Republican to “bring it!”
“I have really two words to say to Mitch McConnell if he wants to do ethics charges — bring it!” he said.
