Sen. Cory Booker walked out of Friday's Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh, claiming that it is a "moral moment" in America.

Christine Blasey Ford and Kavanaugh both testified before the committee on Thursday regarding Ford's sexual misconduct allegations.

Booker (D-N.J.) questioned if the committee would "brush aside" Ford's testimony, asking chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) if its members would listen to her.

He added that Kavanaugh was "privileged," noting his past academic and personal achievements.

"A seat on the Supreme Court is not an entitlement," he said. "Just because you went to Yale Law School or were the captain of your basketball team."

He asked if the committee would rush to put Kavanuagh on the high court, and that Ford's accusations were a "cloud" hanging over him.

"I cannot stomach that we are going to move forward," he said.

He concluded, before exiting, that Kavanaugh's confirmation will be looked at as a "dark moment" similar to Anita Hill's accusations against then-nominee Clarence Thomas in 1991.

Earlier in the hearing, a group of Democrats walked out of the room in protest after committee Chairman Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) scheduled a vote for the afternoon.
