The Senate Judiciary Committee met on Tuesday to vote on President Trump’s attorney general nominee, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL). During the hearing, a protester was forcibly removed from the room for interrupting the proceedings.
The protester interrupted Sen. Patrick Leahy’s (D-VT) remarks when she started shouting, “I say no to Jeff Sessions, no to hatred, no to racism, no to the ban on refugees.”
At this point, the Capitol Police had heard enough and forcibly dragged the protester out of the hearing.
“I’ll go out, but you don’t need to drag me. I’ve got a hip replacement,” the protester can be heard telling the police. “I’m 70 years old and I can make it out on my own.”
