Senator Cory Booker Reveals Jan. 6 Image That Will ‘Haunt’ Him for the Rest of His Life

There is one sight Sen. Cory Booker (DN.J.) will never forget from his experience at the United States Capitol during the Jan. 6, 2021, attack.

In an interview on “The Late Show” Monday, Booker described “hell” breaking loose on the Senate floor that day. Staff members were crying and several police officers were injured in the attack. But there is one image that still haunts him.

″[The image that] will affect me for the rest of my life was arriving at my desk and turning on my television and the first image I saw defiantly waving in our Capitol was the traitor’s flag, the Confederate flag,” Booker told host Stephen Colbert. “And as I continued to watch, I saw people with Auschwitz camp T-shirts, blatant racism and anti-Semitism. The black officers I know were called vile vicious names during of this attack. Hate reigned on our Capitol as people tried to stop the peaceful transfer of power.
