Protesters against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh chased down Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., at Reagan National Airport just outside Washington, D.C.
As Paul was exiting the airport Monday, the group of several women began shouting at Paul, asking him if he would call for an investigation into Kavanaugh. Paul did not respond and continued walking, to which one of the women said, “Women deserve better than silence, Mr. Paul.”
WHY ARE DEMOCRATS SO VIOLENT? “Unprecedented Activity:” Republican Senators Hit With Death Threats Amidst Kavanaugh Fight.
Republican senators are reporting a sharp uptick in threats of violence in the wake of a prolonged battle over Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) and other members of the GOP’s Senate coalition reportedly met behind closed doors Tuesday to discuss how to handle threats to their families, staffs, and offices.
“There’s a lot of unprecedented activity taking place,” Corker told senators at the meeting.
“We’ve been through this in the past, but this is the worst it’s been since I’ve been here,” he continued. “I think we need to recognize that it’s not going to go away with the final determination of whether he’s is going to be on the Supreme Court. There’s something underlying there that we’re experiencing throughout the country right now that we’ve got to figure out a way to address.”
While threats against senators have become a routine occurrence in the Trump administration, some members of Congress say the behavior has become shocking and even dangerous over the last several weeks.
“The level of intensity is probably unlike anything I’ve seen in three and a half years,” Sen. Thom Tillis (R-NC) told local D.C. media.
Capitol Hill police on Wednesday were investigating two additional doxxing incidents after a former Democratic congressional intern was accused of posting the personal information of at least three Republican senators during last week’s Judicial Committee hearing, sources said.
Fox News has learned that the latest alleged doxxing incidents involve at least two more senators, including Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky.
The probe comes amid the arrest of Jackson Cosko, 27, a democratic congressional intern, who earlier Wednesday was arrested for allegedly publishing the private information of at least three Republican senators during last week’s hearing about sexual assault claims against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, authorities said. Paul called for an investigation at the time.

To be fair, it’s a tactic that’s approved by the Washington Post.
