Video: Texas doctors witnessed protesters paid in cash to disrupt Kavanaugh hearing

On Tuesday, Real Clear Politics reported that author and commentator Adam W. Schindler interviewed three Texas doctors who claimed they witnessed protesters being paid in cash as they waited in line to attend the contentious hearing for Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

Real Clear Politics posted a partial transcript of the video:

ADAM W. SCHINDLER: We are here in the line for the public tickets at the Supreme Court hearing in Washington D.C…. day one… there has been a little bit of chaos here, some interesting things were going on on the line… These are not random protests, and we’ve got some eyewitnesses here to tell you what happened in line this morning in D.C.

TOM SCHLUETER, TEXAS: Hello, I’m Dr. Tom Schlueter from Texas, we came here to participate in the hearings, to get in the line. They told us to be here at 8:00, 8:30 at the latest, to get in line to go inside and hear the hearings. We got here at about 8:15 and there was already 100 people in line, and most of them would be probably classified by me as ‘opposing everything going on with Judge Kavanaugh,’ and so we began to see a process of things unfolding as we were standing in line that kept the line from going ahead.

One thing was there were people who had come along… who had a bag of money, and people would hand them a piece of paper, and then they would give them money. So we know money was exchanged for some of the people to be here, just to protest.

There was no depth to what their understanding, they were just here to be a disruption, protesters. They were actually told, we heard them say this, ‘when you go in, we want you to yell, to scream, and even possibly to get arrested.’ So that was some of the processes we saw happening…

DOCTOR CHRIS DUNDAS, CORPUS CHRISTI: Hey guys, I’m Dr. Chris Dundas from Corpus Christi in Texas, we’re up here for these hearings. I gotta tell you, it was very sad. This is a very time-honored institution in the past, and these young people (mostly young people, but some old people) they seem to have no heartfelt convictions about why they are here. If you have to pay somebody to protest, that’s a good tell… Being arrested and being proud of it. Some women came back from these hearings and they seemed disappointed they were not arrested…

DOCTOR BURTON PURVIS, ARLINGTON: Good afternoon, I’m doctor Morton Purvis from Arlington. This experience I shared with these other three guys was quite an enlightening one. I took off my credentials and walked among the people to get more information and be more acceptable to those around us. It was quite interesting as we listened to their attitudes and actions about why they were here and what they wanted to do.

Schindler also posted a photo showing proof protesters were paid off:

As we and others reported, a number of protesters, including Islamist Linda Sarsour, were arrested at the hearing.  Reports also indicated Senate Democrats, led by Chuck Schumer, plotted to disrupt the hearing, but it’s not known if they were part of this effort.  According to Schindler, the activists were paid by anti-Trump groups.

“I respect their right to pay people to exercise free speech. But make no mistake, these disruptive views are not representative at most of America. They are paid political operatives working at the direction of their superiors, not the people,” Schindler said on YouTube.
