Spartacus is at it again – this time, with a very weird line of questioning aimed at yet another Trump appointee.

New Jersey Democratic Sen. Cory Booker, an up-and-coming progressive leader and a 2020 presidential contender, took aim at D.C. Circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeals nominee Neomi Rao during a Senate hearing Tuesday, demanding to know whether she’d ever hired an LGBTQ law clerk and grilling her on her personal and religious beliefs on the morality of homosexuality.
