Senator Cory Booker recently spoke to reporters and stated that he doesn't care if Kavanaugh is guilty or innocent. Regardless of the outcome, Senator Booker doesn't think Kavanaugh should be confirmed.

According to the Daily Caller:

New Jersey Senator Cory Booker on Tuesday told reporters that Judge Kavanaugh’s actual guilt or innocence regarding the allegations against him is irrelevant to the question of whether or not President Trump should rescind his nomination and pick someone else.

“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.

Booker questioned Kavanaugh’s “temperament” and that fact that he used “language that frankly shocked a lot of us” before making the remark, then justifying it by stating that this “is not a trial.”

“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,” said Booker.

Booker went on to urge Trump to pick someone else, who he will likely oppose.
