Chaos Erupts at the Capitol After Collins Assures Kavanaugh Confirmation

Protesters increased in their aggressive demonstrations on Capitol Hill after Senator Susan Collins (R-Mass.) pushed the Kavanaugh confirmation over the top Friday.

Several instances of the aggressive tactics by angry and frustrated protesters were caught on video and shared on social media.

Protesters drowned out Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.V.) while he was trying to speak to reporters with chants of “shame on you! Shame on you! Shame on you!” Manchin was the only Democrat to indicate that he would vote positively to confirm Kavanaugh. . .

“This is what the U.S. Capitol was like today as I walked to the Senate floor for the vote on Judge Kavanaugh,” Kennedy tweeted.

Many demonstrators were targeting Senator Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), who had asked for the Kavanaugh vote to be postponed in order to allow for an FBI investigation.
