Washington CNN  — 

Cory Booker, who is running for the Democratic presidential nomination, channeled Democrats’ fury at the unexpectedly light sentence for Paul Manafort, which the senator from New Jersey learned of the day he released a new sentencing plan and as he was just about to appear on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”

Manafort’s sentence was less than a quarter of what prosecutors had recommended, a lenience that Booker said probably wouldn’t be offered to a drug offender or a minority offender. There’s plenty of data to back Booker up.
