WASHINGTON (Circa) — Newly released video shows Sen. Ted Cruz and his wife being forced to leave a restaurant in Washington, D.C. as protesters chanted at them saying "we believe survivors."
The protesters are referring to two women, Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez, who have accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual harassment during his high school and college days respectively.
A group known as Smash Racism DC captured video of Cruz's removal from the restaurant tweeting, "Fascists not welcome! #<b>CancelKavanugh"</b>

The group says in a separate tweet that a sexual assault survivor questioned Cruz about his upcoming vote to place Kavanaugh in the Supreme Court. The woman can be seen in the video asking Cruz, "do you believe survivors?"
"Senator, I have a right to know what your position is on Brett Kavanaugh," the woman continued.
Cruz replied to the woman by saying "God bless you ma'am."
The woman then addressed Cruz's wife saying, "I'm a survivor of sexual assault ma'am. I believe survivors. There are now three people who have come forward who have said that Brett Kavanaugh has attacked them. I know that you're close friends with him. Would you talk to him about that?"
She then turned back to Cruz and asked again, "how are you gonna vote sir?"
