Government watchdog agency Judicial Watch officially filed an ethics complaint against Democratic Sen. Cory Booker Wednesday; saying the liberal lawmaker violated rules by intentionally flaunting Congressional procedures.
Sen. Booker made headlines last week when he claimed he was “breaking Senate rules” by leaking Judge Kavanaugh’s confidential emails surrounding 9/11 and other issues; daring GOP leadership to “bring the charges.”

“By publicly releasing Committee Confidential records, Sen. Booker appears to have violated provisions 5 and/or 6 of Rule 29 of the Standing Rules of the Senate (Rev. Jan. 24, 2013),” says the letter from Judicial Watch.
“We hereby request that the Senate Ethics Committee conduct a preliminary investigation into whether Sen. Booker violated Senate Rules by releasing Committee Confidential records through his social media accounts,” adds the letter.

“We say an oath that we are a nation of liberty and justice for all, but that’s just words… How are we living our civic gospel that demands for us to reject the normalcy of injustice?” asked Booker.
“I’m a big believer that if this country hasn’t broken your heart then you don’t love her enough. There are things that are savagely wrong in this country,” he added.
