Two dozen demonstrators poured into the office of Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Chuck Grassley Thursday, in an attempt to stop Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s ongoing confirmation hearings.

The protests, which appeared peaceful, began shortly after 9:00 am and featured chants, speeches, and picket signs.

WATCH:

Grassley staffers told Capitol Police that the protesters also banged on doors and windows. Officers responded to the scene almost immediately, and closed the main entrance to the senator’s suite because the demonstrations were audible throughout the Hart Senate Building, effectively sealing the activists inside.

Almost 20 officers were present as of this writing.

It is not clear if Grassley was in his office when the protests started. This reporter saw the chairman near the hearing chamber one floor above his office moments before the demonstrations started.
