More than 300 anti-Kavanaugh protesters arrested


More than 300 protesters were detained in Washington on Thursday for protesting against US President Donald Trump`s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh has been accused of sexual harassment.
Meanwhile, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley claimed that FBI found `no hint` of Kavanaugh`s misconduct. This Republican senator said he had heard from the summary of the secret report. His claim is that the report does not have anything new.
However, the Democrats alleged that the investigation was interrupted due to the intervention of the White House.
Brett Kavanaugh`s nomination in the Supreme Court is only a matter of time now. On Thursday, US citizens mainly women protested against the accused Kavanaugh. They converged on Capitol Hill and held a rally outside the Supreme Court, chanting "Kavanaugh has got to go!"
United States police say they have arrested 302 people because of illegal protests.
