Never Before In The History Of The Senate

So much for the ‘peaceful transition’ that the Democrats said they would facilitate. Democrat Senator Cory Booker is set to testify against Republican Senator Jeff Sessions in an unprecedented move during his attorney general confirmation.

This is going to be the first time in history that a sitting senator will testify against another sitting senator for a Cabinet post during a confirmation.

From CNN:

“I do not take lightly the decision to testify against a Senate colleague,” Booker said. “But the immense powers of the attorney general combined with the deeply troubling views of this nominee is a call to conscience.”…

…Booker called Sessions’ record “concerning in a number of ways,” citing his opposition to bipartisan criminal justice reform and immigration reform, criticism of the Voting Rights Act and his “failure to defend the civil rights of women, minorities, and LGBT Americans.”

Booker’s criticisms of Sessions are laughable considering the fact that Mr. Booker has a tenuous relationship with the truth.

Cory Booker’s ‘Imaginary Friend’

Cory Booker’s friend, T-Bone, may just be a figment of his imagination or bet yet Cory Booker is just a flat out liar.

From the National Review:

Go back and listen to Cory Booker’s stump speeches over the years, and, as in those of any politician, you’ll hear many of the same stories. But Booker’s are more dramatic and heart-rending than most…

sources tell National Review Online that the central character in one of Booker’s oft-repeated stories — T-Bone, the drug pusher who the mayor has said threatened his life at one turn and sobbed on his shoulder the next — is a figment of his imagination, even though Booker has talked about him in highly emotional terms and in great detail…

…In Booker’s mind, according to the city councilman, “It’s not so much the details of the story” that matter… “if Cory had to tell a story or two and mix details up for Newark to get the funding for it…[then it’s worth it]”…

…The T-Bone tale never sat right with Rutgers University history professor Clement Price, a Booker supporter who tells National Review Online he found the mayor’s story offensive because it “pandered to a stereotype of inner-city black men.”…

Price considers himself a mentor and friend to Booker and says Booker conceded to him in 2008 that T-Bone was a “composite” of several people he’d met while living in Newark. The professor describes a “tough conversation” in which he told Booker “that I disapproved of his inventing such a person.”

Instead of testifying against Senator Jeff Sessions perheps Cory Booker should just stick to making people up.
