Sen. Thom Tillis (R-NC) called out the Democratic members of the Senate Judiciary Committee for plotting to protest Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh at his confirmation hearing on Tuesday.

Senate Democrats started off the confirmation hearing by staging what appeared to be a coordinated protest.

Following this grandstanding, NBC’s Kasie Hunt reported that “Democrats plotted coordinated protest strategy over the holiday weekend and all agreed to disrupt and protest the hearing.”

“I just want to be clear, none of the members on this committee participated in that phone call or that strategy before the documents were released yesterday?” Tillis asked the committee. “Are you suggesting that this allegation is false?”

“There was a phone conference yesterday and I can tell you at the time of the phone conference, many issues were raised,” Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) said.
