Republican Sen. Marco Rubio poked fun at Democratic Sen. Cory Booker’s “Spartacus” moment on Thursday when he claimed he released “confidential” documents.

“On this day in 71B.C. the Thracian gladiator Spartacus was put to death by Marcus Licinius Crassus for disclosing confidential scrolls. When informed days later that in fact the Roman Senate had already publicly released the scrolls, Crassus replied ‘Oh, ok, my bad’,” Rubio tweeted on Friday.

Booker was mocked after he claimed he was breaking Senate rules during the third day of Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing. Booker purported to release “committee confidential” emails, but it turned out the documents had already been cleared by the George W. Bush presidential library the night before.
