Pelosi Unclear About Booker Breaking The Law

While being interviewed with Christiane Amanpour on CNN, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said she isn’t “absolutely sure” that Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) violated the law by allowing documents relating to Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh to be released. She also criticized Republicans for blocking the release of documents and said that “is the violation of the regular order that we should be paying attention to.”

Pelosi noted, “I’m not absolutely sure that Senator Booker broke the law. I think the night before they said it was OK to go forward with those items, but that’s neither here nor there. The point is, that the Republicans are departing from any sense of decency and responsibility to the American people by saying, we do not want to see all of these documents that will tell us something. If there’s nothing to hide, release the documents. Why are they so protective of hiding those documents? That is the violation of the regular order that we should be paying attention to.”
