Goodlatte Seemed 'Remarkably Open' To Criminal Justice Reform At White House Meeting

The Republican chairman of the House Judiciary Committee was "remarkably open to many aspects of criminal justice reform" during a White House meeting on Tuesday, Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) told The Huffington Post.

Booker, in a HuffPost Live interview immediately following the meeting, said the discussion among a bipartisan group of congressional lawmakers and President Barack Obama was "phenomenal." He said he told those at the meeting that criminal justice reform would have to be led by the House chairman, Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.).

"I believe -- and, God willing, I'm gonna go see him -- that he's gonna be a leader on significant reforms," Booker said.
