The tweet of the day comes from Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) who just nails Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) over his attempted “I am Spartacus” moment yesterday.
For those who may have missed it, Booker ostensibly released an email from Judge Brett Kavanaugh that was marked “committee confidential” in what he wanted to be a gotcha moment. When he released it Booker said he would be violating Senate rules by doing so. What he failed to say and what we later found out is that the email was no longer classified committee confidential and Booker knew it. Oh, and by the way, the email showed Kavanaugh arguing against racial profiling post 9-11.
On this day in 71B.C. the Thracian gladiator Spartacus was put to death by Marcus Licinius Crassus for disclosing confidential scrolls. When informed days later that in fact the Roman Senate had already publicly released the scrolls, Crassus replied “Oh, ok, my bad”.
