Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas needled Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., for the "Spartacus" comment he made during a confirmation hearing for high court nominee Brett’s Kavanaugh.

Thomas’s remarks came in an interview with the Federalist Society’s Leonard Leo, which was aired by C-SPAN.

The exchange was detailed in a story posted by CNN on its website.

"Honorable -- if we could use that word about more people who are in public life, people who actually ask the questions at confirmation hearings, instead of 'Spartacus,'" Thomas said

Booker had drawn attention after he said he was releasing "committee confidential" records to the public, CNN noted.

"This is about the closest I'll probably ever have in my life to an 'I am Spartacus' moment," Booker said.

CNN said the records had already been approved for release earlier in the day.
