MSNBC: Ari Melber speaks to Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR) who says the women protesting Kavanaugh are "gutsy" but a "crew of white Republican men" have treated them like criminals "that need to be prosecuted."
"It was a gutsy thing to do for women treated awfully by powerful white men as if they are the problem instead of an honest presenter of information. And what happened? Well, this crew of white Republican men proceeded to treat these individuals as if they are dishonest, unacceptable, and even as if they're the criminal that needs to be prosecuted. It's a horrific, horrific conduct by my colleagues," Sen. Merkley said Thursday night.
