Flake in an elevator last week - claiming they are being paid to "make Senators look bad". Don't fall for it! "It is a attractive thing to see - and they are not paid professional protesters who are handed expensive signs". "Paid for by Soros and others", President Donald Trump said of the anti-Kavanaugh protests in Washington D.C. "These are not signs made in the basement from love!" the president added, referring to the billionaire investor and liberal donor.
The president struck a more upbeat note after the Senate pushed Mr Kavanaugh past a key procedural hurdle, saying on Twitter that he was "very proud". The protester, who is an activist and identified herself as a sexual assault survivor, yelled at Flake for supporting Kavanaugh, who has denied accusations of sexual assault.
Protesters returned outside the Capitol Friday morning, a day after 302 were arrested and charged with unlawfully demonstrating inside the Senate complex.
A final vote is expected Saturday on Trump's embattled nominee, who if approved would seal a conservative majority on the nine-seat court for decades. Critics feel the investigation was not extensive enough, creating tension between Senate Democrats and Republicans as they moved toward a vote on whether to advance Kavanaugh's nomination.

His Supreme Court nomination was roiled for weeks by allegations of sexual misconduct and drunken behavior when Kavanaugh was a high school and college student.
"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?"
"Don't you wave your hand at me", the protester continues. Flake said he was going to vote in favour of Kavanaugh's nomination, who has been accused of sexual assault by California professor Christie Blasey Ford.
The president's description of the protesters as "elevator screamers" seemed to be a reference to two women who confronted Republican Sen.
