WATCH: Sen. Cory Booker Admits It Doesn't Matter If Kavanaugh Is 'Innocent or Guilty'

New Jersey Democratic Sen. Cory Booker (a.k.a. "Spartacus") admitted Tuesday that the question isn’t really whether Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is “innocent or guilty” of sexual misconduct against women in high school, but merely whether “enough questions have been raised” to move on to another nominee.

“Beyond the vicious partisan rancor that is going on, beyond the accusations, 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," he told reporters.

“When their credibility has been challenged by intimates, people that knew the candidate well as a classmate, when his temperament has been revealed in an emotional moment where he used language that frankly shocked a lot of us. And then ultimately, not whether he’s innocent or guilty, this is not a trial, but ultimately, have enough questions been raised that we should not move on to another candidate? In that long list put together by the Heritage Foundation and the Federalist Society, move on to another candidate.”

It seems Booker is plainly admitting that the issue here isn’t truly whether Kavanaugh is guilty of trying to sexually assault a woman in high school – those accusations have already been searched and found wanting.

Now, it seems Democrats have moved the goal post yet again, demanding that Kavanaugh’s name be withdrawn from consideration simply for having “enough questions” raised against his character. Given this low and easily acheivable standard, it's laughably absurd to assume they'd treat any other candidate any differently than they have treated Kavanaugh.
