As Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation hearing continues, Sen. Cory Booker has distinguished himself as one of the most vocal opponents of the proceedings. Booker released confidential emails pertaining to the hearing, acknowledging the penalty of such action could be expulsion from the Senate. Many of Booker's supporters lauded the action, saying Booker's act of civil disobedience was for the good of the country. Others, including Booker's Republican colleagues in the Senate, accused him of grandstanding for purely political reasons. What do you think?

Booker promptly followed up his statement in the hearing by releasing the documents online. 

Many liberals lauded the action as selfless and the sign of a true leader and patriot.

Republican Sen. John Cornyn immediately condemned Booker's actions and accused him of playing politics to promote his presidential candidacy. 

On his Twitter account, Cornyn claimed the documents had already been declassified and Booker's action was completely hollow. 

Conservatives were quick to paint Booker as a hollow grandstander.
