Two demonstrators were removed Wednesday morning from the confirmation hearing of Andrew Wheeler —President Trump’s pick to lead the EPA.

Protesters in the hallway and hearing room objected to the business in front of the Environment and Public Works Committee, because the EPA remains closed as part of the partial government shutdown. The group of over a dozen protesters included people representing Code Pink and The Moms Clean Air Force, some with strollers and their children in tow.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday praised Capitol Police  for their work as Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court was underway — but also took a few verbal shots at the “far left.”

“To the men and women of the United States Capitol Police and all the other law enforcement officers who kept members, staff and citizens safe, even in extremely difficult and often hostile circumstances, we really can’t thank them enough,” he said in his opening remarks on the Senate floor.
