Judicial Watch has filed an ethics complaint against Democrat Senator Cory Booker.

The conservative watchdog group is claiming he broke Senate rules by releasing confidential documents regarding Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

The group president –Tom Fitton — submitted the complaint Wednesday, requesting an investigation into Booker’s alleged violation of Senate rules.

Under those guidelines, any senator who releases confidential information is subject to be expelled.

Booker repeatedly announced he was breaking the rules during Kavanaugh’s hearings last week, causing many to claim the Democrat senator was grandstanding to gain favor in his party ahead of the 2020 elections.
