Trump faces kickback after claiming Kavanaugh protesters financed by Soros

Kavanaugh has faced a series of sexual misconduct allegations that, according to the accusers, occurred decades ago. The protests were part of a series of events that helped convince Flake, a key swing-vote senator on Kavanaugh's nomination, to call for an FBI investigation in the claims against Kavanaugh.

More than 300 protesters were arrested, including comedian Amy Schumer, who is a second cousin of Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of NY, and model Emily Ratajkowski.

Hitting back, an American liberal advocacy group Right Wing Watch said: "On the surface, Trump's tweeting of a Soros conspiracy theory acts to explain-away opposition to Kavanaugh". Those allegations have prompted an outcry and multiple demonstrations, including Thursday, when thousands of protesters, a lot of them female, gathered in the capital.

The Senate on Friday morning is set to hold a crucial vote on whether to advance Kavanaugh's nomination to the highest court in the nation.

Last week, sexual assault survivors confronted Sen.

Hatch was approached by protesters as he was getting into an elevator on Thursday, waving his hand at them and telling them to "grow up".

Activists, including female survivors of sexual assault, have in recent days been confronting senators as they enter elevators in the US Capitol and in Senate office buildings.

"Do you believe George Soros is behind all of this, paying these people to get you and your colleagues in elevators or wherever they can get in your face?" The two women confronted Sen. "Great decision. I very much appreciate those 50 great votes and I think he's going to go down as a totally brilliant Supreme Court Justice for many years".

Other Republicans have echoed Trump's frustration. "The other side did it", he told reporters after Kavanaugh's confirmation.

The idea that anti-Trump protestors are paid off by his political enemies is a recurring claim by the president, who previously advocated investigating the 2017 Tax March protestors to determine whether they were paid. "Flake talking about how to talk to an elected official, and what I said to her was, 'Speak from your heart, '" Archila said.

Ms Archila said: "This is what he does, he's a bully".
