McConnell ‘will not be intimidated’ after protests over Kavanaugh vote

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Wednesday he won’t be intimidated as protesters vow to keep fighting against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Meanwhile, a political group taking credit for getting in the face of the Kentucky Republican as he walked through a Washington, D.C., airport on Monday said it was a “last resort” to oppose Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

“How many stories of sexual violence do you need to hear in order to believe women,” an activist can be heard asking McConnell in a video released by the Center for Popular Democracy.

The confrontation comes as McConnell faces scrutiny for emphatically backing Kavanaugh amid allegations of sexual assault during his high school and college years.

McConnell was unfazed by the women who confronted him, telling the Senate floor on Wednesday that Republicans’ opinions won’t be swayed by protests.
