Grassley Speaks On Kavanaugh Protesters

After several protesters confronted senators over their support of Brett Kavanaugh, Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) called on all people present at Capitol Hill to “set an example for civility.”

Grassley pointed fingers at Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) for inciting protesters to confront GOP lawmakers.

“I think that it’s a reflection of the incivility of American society, generally,” stated Grassley.

“We as senators ought to be setting examples for civility — not encouraging incivility,” he added. “You’ve heard about the resistance since November 2016. You’re seeing the resistance headquarters right here on Capitol Hill — all among Democrats.”
