Brett Kavanaugh protesters ignore police barricades, occupy the U.S. Capitol
It’s very likely that alleged sexual assaulter Brett Kavanaugh will be confirmed on Saturday as a U.S. Supreme Court judge. The #resistance is having none of that noise.
With hours to go before the Saturday afternoon Senate vote, protesters gathered in front of the United States Capitol took steps to make sure they’d be heard. As a group, they busted through police barricades and took up residence on the Capitol Building’s east steps.
The dramatic moment was captured on camera and quickly went viral.
