Protesters arrested at Kavanaugh hearing

Capitol Hill police say they arrested 70 protesters who disrupted Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing on Tuesday.

Sixty-one demonstrators were charged with disorderly conduct and another nine were charged with “crowding, obstructing, or incommoding.”

The protesters, mostly women, loudly objected inside the hearing room to Kavanaugh’s confirmation, saying his appointment would be a setback for women’s rights and gay rights, among other things. Authorities escorted the protesters out of the hearing room.

The demonstrations added to the chaotic nature of the hearing. As it began, Democrats demanded that the hearing be adjourned to give senators time to review more than 42,000 pages of documents related to Kavanaugh’s record that were released Monday night.
