Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee is off to a rocky start, with Democrats demanding the hearing be halted because regular order isn’t being followed.
On Sunday night, 42,000 pages of documents related to Kavanaugh were released by the National Archives; Democrats say the hearing should stopped because they have not had sufficient time to review them. Chuck Grassley, the Republican committee chairman, initially refused the request, at some points talking over shouts from the audience.

Meanwhile, outside the proceedings, women lined the hallways dressed as handmaids from The Handmaid’s Tale.
