Kirsters Baish| Alt-left liberal and Women March leader Linda Sarsour was arrested on Tuesday after storming the confirmation hearing for President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court pick, Brett Kavanaugh.
The leftist activist made her way into the hearing room inside the Hart Senate Office Building shortly before 9:30 a.m. Initially, she sat alongside other liberal activists in silence. When the Kavanaugh hearing began, she rebuked Republican lawmakers with vigor. Then, she pushed them to adjourn. Police officers were forced to remove her from the room as she continued to scream at senators. Other activists were removed shortly after when they began making a commotion.
The Daily Caller reports:
Democratic members of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary similarly urged the GOP majority to defer the hearing until they could review some 42,000 records relating to Kavanaugh’s White House service which were released late Monday night.
Sasour was one of approximately 20 demonstrators forcibly removed from Tuesday’s hearing by Capitol police. The protestors said Kavanaugh would protect President Donald Trump on the Supreme Court and provide the fifth vote to overturn Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision which legalized abortion nationwide.

During the January 2017 Women’s March, Sarsour was a head organizer. She protested President Donald Trump’s election to presidency. She is currently a board member of the Women’s March. When asked to comment on the matter, neither Sarsour or any spokesperson for the Women’s March organization would make a statement.
Just hours after her arrest, Sarsour was back at the Senate building where authorities had arrested her. The Daily Caller writes of Sarsour that she has been arrested in the past. “She was arrested in March after leading a protest at Speaker of the House Paul Ryan’s office and demanding a meeting with him. She was also one of several activists arrested in March 2017 for disorderly conduct outside Trump Tower in New York City.”
