Amy Schumer Spotted Protesting In Senate Office Building — Tells Police She’s Willing To Get Arrested
Actress Amy Schumer protested Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh in the Hart Senate office building Thursday, telling police she was willing to be arrested, and was subsequently arrested.
Schumer joined a large group of protesters in a march in Washington, D.C., from the courthouse Kavanaugh currently works in to the Supreme Court. Hundreds of protesters then funneled into the Hart Senate office building.
After nearly an hour, the office building was slammed. All floors were covered with protesters.
Capitol Police jumped in, giving final warnings to the large group. They told other protesters if they did not want to be arrested, they had to clear out of the lobby.
Schumer was seen on video telling police officers “yes” when asked if she was willing to be arrested.
Women’s March leader Linda Sarsour was also spotted in the crowd, but she refused to answer questions from The Daily Caller News Foundation. (RELATED: This Is Why Linda Sarsour Can Get Arrested So Often And Still Go Home For Dinner)

Police arrested protesters who remained in the circle in the middle of the lobby.
Protesters have continued to confront Republican members of Congress at restaurants, airports, and their offices. Several members of Congress have also had their private contact information and home addresses leaked to the public.
