WASHINGTON D.C. (News4Utah)- Protestors against Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination flooded the hallways of Capitol Hill on Monday.

They’re calling for lawmakers to delay Thursday’s judiciary committee hearing after a second woman publicly accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.

Hawaii Democratic Senator Mazie Hirono says the Senate must delay the hearing to give the FBI time to investigate Kavanaugh’s past.

“I think if you were in a drunken stupor, do you think you’re going to admit to it? I would say not…That’s why I would say lying to the FBI is a whole ‘nother matter,” she said.

Senate Republicans say they want the committee to vote on the confirmation on Thursday.  They say Democrats are only trying to stall Kavanaugh’s nomination. 

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the Democrats have already made up their minds to “delay, obstruct, and resist”.

One of Kavanaugh’s accusers has agreed to testify at Thursday’s hearing.   In a letter to lawmakers, Kavanaugh calls the accusations smears and says “I will not be intimidated into withdrawing”.

President Trump’s public support for Kavanaguh remains unwavering.

“This could be one of the single most unfair, unjust things to happen to a candidate for anything, but I am with Judge Kavanaugh,” Trump said.

These protestors say they believe the women and they plan more protests before Thursday’s hearing
