Amy Schumer among those arrested before Kavanaugh vote

Amy Schumer and Emily Ratajkowski Arrested in Washington D.C. for Protesting Brett Kavanaugh

Amy Schumer and Emily Ratajkowski are among two of the names of the 302 people who were arrested for the sit-in in Capitol Hill, which hoped to block the increasing likelihood of Kavanaugh's confirmation.

The Trainwreck actress joined demonstrators at the #CancelKavanagh event at Capitol Hill, which occurred a day before the Senate will begin voting on Republican President Donald Trump's pick. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.). The protests came as a last-ditch effort to halt Kavanaugh's nomination, after the completion of the FBI investigation into claims of sexual assault from multiple accusers. The comedian wasn't alone in receiving her marching orders, it is believed that 300 other individuals, including Emily Ratajkowski, were arrested during the mass protest.

Protesters initially planned to hold their rally on the East Front of the Capitol, but Capitol Police cordoned off the area Thursday morning.

Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh has been accused of sexual assault by three women. "I demand from the government the same understanding, respect and support women, like men", wrote Ratkowski in Instagram.

"When I texted my daughter, Zola, a picture of Amy Schumer she got very excited and said she was reading Amy's book today".




According to CNN, senators are now reviewing the results of an FBI investigation into the allegations against Kavanaugh, and may vote as early as this weekend.

Schumer is not arrested in the clip, but a subsequent video he posted shows Schumer following an officer and a line of women to another location.

As one of the protestors put it: "We do not do 10 days of marching and then go back to our lives, because nothing is the same any more". Nine people were reportedly interviewed, but not Judge Kavanaugh, 53, or the woman who first accused him of sexual assault.

Let's say it together: let's fight!

The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee has had a long couple of weeks calling the shot during the hearings for Kavanaugh's approval to the Supreme Court.
