Leading GOP Senators slammed their Democratic colleagues Tuesday morning after several prominent legislators routinely interrupted Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley; accusing the lawmakers of inciting “mob rule” during the Supreme Court confirmation process.
Senators Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, and others repeatedly harassed Grassley within seconds of his opening statement, with dozens of protesters screaming “Vote NO” as the leading Democrats urged an indefinite postponement of the hearings.
“This is the first confirmation hearing subject to mob rule,” said Sen. Cornyn.
“Judge Kavanaugh is one of the most qualified nominees – if not the most qualified nominee – I have seen,” said Grassley after an hour of interruptions and protests.

BOOKER GOES BERSERK: Cory Says Kavanaugh Supporters ‘COMPLICIT IN EVIL’
Hyper-liberal Senator Cory Booker exploded on those supporting the President’s pick to join the Supreme Court Tuesday; saying those in favor of confirming Brett Kavanaugh are “complicit in evil.”
Booker was speaking alongside fellow Democrats -including Sen. Elizabeth Warren- when he viciously smeared those behind Kavanaugh’s nomination; adding the United States was in a “moral moment.”
“There’s so much at stake here, this has nothing to do with politics, it has to do with who we are as moral leaders… In a moral moment there is no neutral. In a moral moment there are no bystanders. You’re either complicit in evil […] or you’re fighting against it,” said the Senator.

But that doesn’t say ‘Though I sit in the valley of the shadow of death,’ it doesn’t say, ‘I’m watching on the sidelines of the valley of the shadow of death, it says, ‘I am walking through the valley of the shadow of death,’” he added.

Sen. Cory Booker slammed Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley moments later, saying the proceedings violated his “sense of decency.”
“I think you are taking advantage of my decency and my integrity,” Grassley fired-back.
