Thursday on CNN’s New Day, grandstanding Sen. Cory “Spartacus” Booker declared that no more evidence was necessary in the Senate impeachment of Donald Trump to prove that the former President “violated his oath of office.”
“We do not need more evidence to come to the conclusion that Trump violated his oath of office,” Booker asserted, citing Trump’s rally, his “prolific tweeting,” and then his purported silence as participants in the Capitol break-in on January 6 were hunting for former Vice President Mike Pence and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
“They literally were saying they were taking direction from him. They were reading his tweet publicly out to other rioters as they chanted, ‘Hang Mike Pence,” Booker claimed. “I do not understand how you cannot look [at] this prolific tweeting that went on and then the silence afterward. This is a president that knows how to tell people to stop. I don’t know how you can’t look at the fact that it was well known that the riotous, murderous mob was in the Capitol for an hour plus, and then the two things you hear from the president is one, him replaying his own speech on Twitter and then telling the mob that Mike Pence had failed them.
“It is hard to even venture to say that the commander-in-chief who swore an oath to protect this sacred space did not fail in his duty, did not betray that oath,” Booker continued. “We do not need more evidence, in my opinion, to come to the conclusion that… Donald Trump violated his oath of office.”
By stating that his mind is made up, that he and his fellow Democrats don’t need to look at all the evidence, Booker is essentially admitting that this sham impeachment process is nothing but a kangaroo court.
