Booker: ‘Innocent or Guilty,’ Kavanaugh Shouldn’t Be Confirmed

Democrat Sen. Cory Booker told reporters Tuesday that it doesn’t matter if Judge Brett Kavanaugh is “innocent or guilty” — his Supreme Court nomination should be withdrawn and he should not be confirmed.

“So my hope is that beyond the vicious partisan rancor that is going on, beyond the accusation, we don’t lose sight of what this moral moment is about in this country, and ultimately ask ourselves the question – Is this the right person to sit on the highest court in the land for a lifetime appointment?” Booker told Capitol Hill reporters.

“And then ultimately, not whether he is ‘innocent or guilty’ – this is not a trial – but ultimately, have enough questions been raised that we should not move on to another candidate,” he added.
