Protesters on Capitol Hill and across the country have erupted in outrage that the path is now clear to confirming Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

On Friday, after Republicans secured the votes needed to confirm Kavanaugh on Saturday, protesters angrily harassed senators and staged massive demonstrations.

The fever pitch of the protests led conservative pundit Sean Hannity to call for Congressional office buildings, which are normally open to the public on weekdays, to be placed on lockdown.

‘I really believe the people should be close to their elected representatives, and it’s sad what I’m about to say: Before somebody gets hurt or worse, these office areas of elected officials now need to be closed to the public,’ Hannity said on his Fox News program on Friday night. ‘This is now dangerous and out-of-control.’

After Republican Senator Susan Collins from Maine announced her decision to cast the deciding vote for Kavanaugh, she was rushed from the Senate floor by Capitol Police to a waiting vehicle.

The Women’s March responded by calling Collins a ‘rape apologist’ in a tweet.

Donations also poured into a fundraising page set up to collect campaign donations for a future opponent to unseat Collins, whose term ends in 2020.

The donation page had collected $2.8million in pledges on Friday night, with the donations to be triggered if Collins casts her vote for Kavanaugh on Saturday as she says she will.

‘If you fail to stand up for the people of Maine and for Americans across the country, every dollar donated to this campaign will go to your eventual Democratic opponent in 2020. We will get you out of office,’ the fundraiser’s organizers wrote.

Minutes after Collins’ speech, protesters mobbed Democrat Senator Joe Manchin from West Virgina, screaming ‘shame, shame, shame’ as he told reporters that he also planned to vote to confirm Kavanaugh.
