Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell scolded protesters Wednesday after weeks of harassment towards Republican members of the Senate for not actively opposing the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
“Sometimes this intimidation campaign [against Kavanaugh’s confirmation] has been aimed at the nominee … and when that didn’t work, then the far left tried to bully and intimidate members of this body — Republican United States senators,” McConnell said on the Senate floor. “They’ve tried to bully and intimidate us.”
“One of our colleagues and his family were effectively run out of a restaurant in recent days by these people,” the Kentucky senator continued. “Another reported having protesters physically block his car door, and some have seen organized far left protesters camp out at their homes.”
Republican senators, especially members of the Senate Judiciary Committee have seen an increase in protests, disturbance and threats since President Donald Trump revealed Kavanaugh’s nomination in July. Committee chairman Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona were even assigned special protection in response to the heightened levels of harassment. More
