WATCH: Democratic Senators Walk Out of Judiciary Committee in Protest
Several Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee walked out of Friday’s vote on Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh in protest.
According to CNN’s Manu Raju, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) led the walkout. Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) and Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) followed behind.
Committee chairman Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) chastised photographers for scrambling to capture the protest.
“Hey, you folks that are photographers know that you’re supposed to sit down,” Grassley said. “Maybe you just ought to leave the room if you don’t know what the rules are.”
Harris and Blumenthal went on to address the media as the committee proceeding continued.
