Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) on Thursday released emails from Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's time as a White House counsel, escalating a heated fight over his documents.

Booker released approximately 12 pages of emails tied to discussions Kavanaugh had on racial inequality including one email thread titled "racial profiling."

The documents are marked "committee confidential," meaning they were not supposed to be discussed or released publicly.

The move comes after Booker said during a heated debate on Kavanaugh's third day before the Judiciary Committee that he would release the email thread.
