The Guardian reports:
This hearing is off to a turbulent start. Democrats interrupted Chairman Chuck Grassley, a Republican of Iowa, the moment he started his opening statement. They’re demanding a delay in the hearing until more documents are released and there is more time to review the documents that have been released.
The first request came from Senator Kamala Harris, a Democrat of California. Senator Richard Blumenthal, a Democrat of Connecticut, then asked for the meeting to be postponed. The small gallery of observers erupted in applause. And then several women began shouting “Vote no on Kavanaugh”.
One woman shouted as she was removed from the hearing: “If you vote for Brett Kavanaugh we will replace you.” Another shouted: “My daughter deserves the right to choose.”

California senators and other Democrats object to moving forward with the Senate Judiciary nomination hearing for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. In the background, protesters scream and shout out that this is a “mockery and travesty of justice.” https://t.co/r467tDyQ3m pic.twitter.com/vk28NwItPY
