In case you missed it, here’s video of Sen. Jeff Flake being cornered in an elevator by protesters after he announced that he would support Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh:
As we all know, Kavanaugh was confirmed, so what’s on that protester’s mind now? Newsweek decided to track her down to talk about the “pain and rage” she went through during the Kavanaugh hearings.
Ana Maria Archila rose to prominence after confronting GOP Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona in an elevator, ahead of the Kavanaugh confirmation. I sat down with her to talk about how that viral moment could shape tomorrow's midterm elections. https://t.co/6CQ7unokHZ

Wow, was that a one-sided puff piece. One nice factoid from the video that we’d heard before: Ana Maria Archila is a professional community organizer, working with the left-wing Center for Popular Democracy.

Funny how Robert Valencia didn’t track down celebrity lawyer Michael Avenatti’s client Julie Swetnick to interview her; we’re sure Avenatti would have set up a meeting.
She does know that many of his “accusers” lied? It is a disgrace what she did without knowing if the accusations were true. How DARE she try to ruin a man’s life without all the facts.

Her rage is understandable. But this fight was not the place for it.
Not going forward upon murky, 36-year-old allegations that don't bear upon a man's present character are not an "affirmation of a culture that supports sexual violence."

She was doing her job.
65% think the press divides, this is why

‘WOW’! Senate Judiciary Committee releases all findings on allegations against Kavanaugh, and it’s BAD (Hint: NOT for Kavanaugh) https://t.co/xLhfpvL15K
