Almost 300 protesters were arrested at a US Senate building on Thursday afternoon as crowds of activists descended on Capitol Hill while lawmakers reviewed the FBI's report on the allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Protesters marching arm in arm from the Supreme Court to Senate office buildings Thursday wore shirts that said "Believe women" while chanting "Hey hey!"

A reporter observed a group of pro-Kavanaugh advocates with regalia from a large conservative lobby on Friday - hours after President Donald Trump complained on Twitter that the "elevator screamers" who confronted Sen. Don't fall for it! He also claimed the signs, which look professionally made, were identical - therefore paid by Soros.

Trump did not provide any evidence to support his claims. "These are not signs made in the basement from love!" the president added, referring to the billionaire investor and liberal donor.

The protest was one of many throughout the week against the Supreme Court nominee who has been accused of sexual assault and whose drinking in high school and college have been under scrutiny.


Arizona's Jeff Flake was challenged in a Senate elevator by two women who said they had been sexually assaulted.

The procedural vote to start debate on Kavanaugh's nomination in the full Senate is set to take place at 10:30 a.m., which would clear the way for a final vote on Saturday afternoon.

The names of the protesters have not been confirmed by police "due to the large number being processed", but some famous faces in the crowd have identified themselves.

Comedian Amy Schumer was seen being arrested, and model Emily Ratajkowski tweeted that she had also been arrested.
