Chaos in the Senate as Kavanaugh confirmation hearings begin
Twenty-two protestors have been arrested for causing disruptions during Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing Tuesday, while Democrats attempted to delay the process over concerns about a lack of transparency and questions about President Trump's legal troubles.
The bottom line: Committee chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), who was forced to give his opening statement an hour later than scheduled, refused to allow a vote on the Democrats' motion to adjourn and has pledged to continue the confirmation hearing despite interruptions.
