Amy Schumer among 302 arrested for Senate office protests on Kavanaugh

After two key Republicans boosted the judge's chances of a nomination by expressing satisfaction with the scope and findings of an Federal Bureau of Investigation report into the claims, activists gathered outside the Hart Senate Office building on Capitol Hill to call on Susan Collins, a key Republican senator, to vote against Mr Kavanaugh.

"At this time, we are unable to confirm the names of those arrested due to the large number being processed", the statement read, according to The Hill. While Ratajkowski took to social media to say she was arrested. Men that hurt women can't hold managerial positions.

Film star Amy Schumer was one of a crowd of approximately 300 protestors who were arrested at a protest against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on Friday. "Hey, hey, ho, ho - Kavanaugh has got to go", the black-clad demonstrators shouted in the cavernous central area, circled by police officers. "I demand a government that acknowledges, respects and supports women as much as it does men".

A viral Twitter video shows police appearing to herd a large group of protesters, including Schumer, inside the area.

Schumer added that during the arrest, she herself was not wearing a bra either.

Three women have accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct; the first, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, recounted her allegations that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a party during their teen years at a hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week.

Two other women have since come forward with alleged separate instances of sexual assault, both of which have been categorically denied by Kavanaugh. She told the crowd: We're going to keep showing up and no matter how this goes they can not keep us down.

"A vote for Kavanaugh is a vote saying women don't matter", Schumer said. "Let's fight. Let's keep showing up".
