Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) confessed to Democrats being behind attempts to disrupt the Brett Kavanaugh hearings in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Kavanaugh is answering questions as part of the nomination process for the Supreme Court.

Durbin revealed that Democrats took part in a conference call over the Labor Day weekend to use protests and interruptions to show a groundswell of opposition to Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

During the hearing Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) called out Democrats on this report saying, “I’m reviewing a tweet by NBC that said ‘Democrats plotted coordinated protest strategy over the holiday weekend all agreed to disrupt and protest the hearing, sources tell me.’ And, subsequent, ‘Dem leader Chuck Schumer led a phone call, and committee members are executing now.’ So, I just want to be clear: none of the members on this committee participated in that phone call or that strategy before the documents were released yesterday? Are you suggesting that this allegation is false?”

Durbin responded but did not address whether they discussed interrupting the procedures.

MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt made the initital report, tweeting “Democrats plotted coordinated protest strategy over the holiday weekend and all agreed to disrupt and protest the hearing, sources tell me and @frankthorp

“Dem leader @chuckschumer led a phone call and committee members are executing now”

NBC News also reported that Democrats staged these protests:

CBS News also confirmed the report of Democrats childishly staging these protests.
