So it looks like Senator Booker didn't like the idea of "classified" documents being withheld (especially since it wasn't a matter of national security) and broke some rules to make them public.
Just today, roughly 12 pages of emails relating to Kavanaugh and Racial Profiling were released.
What do you think? Ok to break the rules in this situation? Does this change everyone's views on the Supreme Court Nominee? What will be the ramifications of this?
No, its not okay to break the rules of the Senate. He essentially released emails showing that Kavanaugh did not want racial profiling following 9/11, which is a good thing.. So i don't know what's up with the theatrics of Booker. But I will say this, he definitely deserves the Oscar for grandstanding.

These democrats are nit wits what the hell! They are setting all the precedent and unless they can find a way into power they are setting themselves up pretty badly! I would not doubt that the sealed indictments are that way so they can set more of their own precedence and so the American people know this fact before they bring them down with their own.

Oh definitely not acceptable, but it should be the voters that determine the punishment. If they vote for him they deserve what they get.
Everything released seems to point towards K not being influenced by Race, and equally so, not giving any preference to anyone or any group based on their race or ethnicity.

We can deny it until the cows come home, but every Supreme Court selection is political. Overturning Roe vs. Wade is the underlying reason for this conservative pick. For conservatives to always complain that government should stay out of the personal lives of Americans, it's rather hypocritical of them to decide upon a women's and family decision that could drastically affect their lives or that of the unborn.
Americans have every right to know everything about a Supreme Court appointment. In addition, we elect our representatives to be transparent and to negotiate in good faith on behalf of the interests of the American people. Conservatives have not been transparent with this appointment let alone honest and transparent about our current president. When over 60% of Americans support the ruling of Roe vs. Wade, all the complaints about this selection is justified. These Supreme Court candidates should all be extremely scrutinized since they are to be politically impartial on their decisions.
