Trey Gowdy

(BizpacReview) Rep. Trey Gowdy slammed grandstanding by Democrats whom he felt used Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation hearings to position themselves for 2020 politics. Kavanaugh faced intense scrutiny by Democrats in another day of questioning before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, getting grilled by potential 2020 contenders like California Sen. Kamala Harris and Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey.

Gowdy was especially disappointed in Booker’s antics who compared himself to “Spartacus” as he threatened to release confidential documents and challenged the Committee to penalize him. “That’s not the Cory Booker that I know, that I watched on television,” the South Carolina Republican said on Fox News’ “The Story” Thursday. “That is not the Cory Booker that I discuss criminal justice reform with. That is someone that is trying to position himself as the front-runner, so he can take on Donald Trump.”

After dramatically blowing hot air during the hearing Thursday, Booker eventually did release 12 pages of emails online which were marked “committee confidential” and included Kavanaugh’s post 9/11 discussions related to racial profiling. But even after likening himself to Spartacus, Booker’s stunt was a big flop as committee Republicans posted the same documents and scores of others since the restrictions on releasing the emails were already waived.

“They missed a wonderful opportunity, the Senate did, to have a robust, interesting hearing about judicial philosophy and whether you’re a strict constructionist or you’re a minimalist,” Gowdy told Fox News host Martha MacCallum.

“What I watched over the last couple days was a lot of people who want to be the nominee in 2020, and it’s sad,” he added, noting that Americans are probably tired of “four-year-long presidential election cycles.”

Naturally the revelation that Booker’s performance was just for effect as the documents were not an issue did not grab the same media attention, as liberals cheered on the self-titled gladiator for standing up to the GOP. But, Gowdy opined, it’s a “shame” to see what presidential politics can do to people.

“The shame of it all to me is that, that is what ambition and presidential politics can do to otherwise reasonable people” he said. “That was the shame of it to me.”

    Political Grand-standing at a Senate Judiciary Committe Hearing for Nominee for Supreme Court Justice, Judge Brett Kavanaugh. What a wasted opportunity to seriously question his qualification’s.
    Just another dog and pony show for the Democrat’s and MSM narrative.
    I hope the SJC decides to change the rules of the next committee hearing ( no side shows from the gallery ).
    Anyone voting for those clowns need a brain scan as does the Senator’s acting like children.
    What’s next, other than Barry popping up to spew his lies.

  2. I’ll say this, Gowdy is very good at playing the good guy. This chameleon has many fooled.

  3. Booker and Harris and others are NIGLET RACES AND IT SHOWED AT THIS SO CALLED CONFIRMATION HEARING.
    THEY ARE LOW LIFE SLIME.
    NOT QUALIFIED TO BE EVEN DOG CATCHERS, AND I FEEL THE SAME ABOUT ALL THOSE SCUMBAG COMMUNIST DEMORAT TRAITORS, THEY REALLY BELONG IN GITMO AWAITING THEIR TRIALS.
