Amid protesters confronting senators over their support of Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) on Friday called on everyone on Capitol Hill to “set an example for civility.”
Grassley blamed Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) for encouraging people to confront GOP lawmakers and urged senators and others on Capitol Hill to set examples of civility.
“I think that it’s a reflection of the incivility of American society, generally,” said Grassley.
“We as senators ought to be setting examples for civility — not encouraging incivility,” he added. “You’ve heard about the resistance since November 2016. You’re seeing the resistance headquarters right here on Capitol Hill — all among Democrats.”
