Democrats walk out of committee hearing in protest of Kavanaugh vote

Democratic Senators Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii), Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) and Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) walked out of the Senate Judiciary Committee's hearing room Friday after the committee set a 1:30 p.m. vote on sending Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination to the full Senate.

The details: The Democrats who left then held an impromptu press conference outside the committee room. They said the move was not coordinated.
