New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker quoted the Bible during a speech on Capitol Hill Tuesday while calling supporters of the president’s Supreme Court Justice pick Judge Brett Kavanaugh “complicit in evil.”


Booker said “there’s a saying in the Abrahamic faiths one of the Psalms that says ‘Yea though we walk through the valley of the shadow of death.’ We are walking through the valley of the shadow of death. But that doesn’t say ‘Though I sit in the valley of the shadow of death,’ it doesn’t say, ‘I’m watching on the sidelines of the valley of the shadow of death, it says, ‘I am walking through the valley of the shadow of death.'”

The Senator also stated that supporters of Judge Kavanaugh are “complicit in evil.” (RELATED: Sen. Cory Booker Accuses Anyone Supporting Kavanaugh Of Being ‘Complicit’ In ‘Evil’)

Booker added, “There is so much at stake here — this has nothing to do with politics. This has to do with who we are as moral leaders” and that “in a moral moment, there is no neutral.”

Edit: There was a correction made due to a transcription error. The original post stated Booker misattributed the Psalm to Abraham, when instead Booker attributed the Psalm to “Abrahamic faiths.”
