Confused Cornyn

These people...

Except yesterday the Republicans said this:

Later Thursday, Bill Burck, a lawyer who oversaw the process of providing Bush administration documents, undercut Booker's grand gesture, saying that the material in question had been cleared on Wednesday night at the request of the senator's staff.

"We were surprised to learn about Senator Booker's histrionics this morning because we had already told him he could use the documents publicly. In fact, we have said yes to every request made by the Senate Democrats to make documents public," Burck said in a statement.

The office of Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, an Iowa Republican, also said that senators, including Booker, were notified "before they spoke today" that the restrictions on the documents had been waived.


I guess Cornyn wants him investigated for saying he was doing something they later said he didn't actually do. That must be one of the more obscure Senate rules.

Cornyn was a member of the Texas Supreme Court. I have never been able to get over that.
