Amy Schumer arrested at Capitol Hill protest against Brett Kavanaugh


WASHINGTON (CIRCA) - Comedian Amy Schumer was among those detained at the Hart Senate building on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., Thursday.

The funnywoman was protesting the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, who is facing at least three accusations of sexual misconduct.

Schumer was caught on camera interacting with a police officer. The officer asked Schumer if she wanted to be arrested, to which she replied, "Yes."

In another clip, Schumer is taking video in selfie-mode. The video is a clip Twitter user @Theboldtype_z says she received from her mother.

"Hi, Zola, I'm here with your mom. She loves you very much. I think we're going to get arrested and we're so proud of you," Schumer said.

"No matter how this goes, they cannot keep us down," Schumer said during the protest. "We will win. A vote for Kavanaugh is a vote saying women don’t matter."

Schumer is a cousin of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., who has also been critical of Kavanaugh.
