Booker gets Judiciary panel seat

By David Wildstein

U.S. Sen. Cory Booker has joined the Senate Judiciary Committee, giving the potential presidential candidate an opportunity to question President Trump’s nominees for federal judgeships and other key posts.

In a tweet, Booker said: “Excited to join the Judiciary Committee. It’ll be my mission to check awful actions by Trump & Sessions; keep working to advance the cause of reforming our broken justice system; and to bend the arc of history closer toward equal justice for all.

Booker and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-California) were given seats on the committee.  One replaced Al Franken and the other reflects a changed ratio of Republicans and Democrats based on the pickup of a Senate seat in California.
