Booker: ‘Trump Betrayed His Office…Worse than Watergate’

Senator Cory Booker claimed on Monday during SiriusXM’s “The Joe Madison Show,” that President Trump has betrayed his office and our “ideals.” This was in response to Trump calling Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky and speaking about Joe Biden.

The 2020 presidential hopeful even compared the situation to Richard Nixon and Watergate, but says that Trump is even worse than that.

“It is a betrayal of the office at the scale of which I haven’t seen in my lifetime. I’d have to go back to, God, I don’t think Watergate even compares to what this is,” Booker whined.

“This is such a betrayal of our ideals. It is such a betrayal of Congressional intent. And he needs to answer for this should the facts bear out. So I hope that this is not people saying, ‘Oh, it’s just Trump being Trump.’” He continued, “No, this is a deep potential violation of our Constitution, of our values. And it is an impeachable offense.”

“By the way, the fact that we don’t even have the whistleblower’s report in Congress is a violation of Congressional rules. It says in the whistleblower rule that the Inspector General shall give this information to the Intelligence Committee,” Booker added.

He concluded, “Shall do it. And then not giving it to Congress alone to me is a violation of our law. So I think this is a moral moment. I think this is a moment of patriotism, Republican or Democrat, to be demanding the truth come out, and hold this president accountable for his actions.”
