Day two of Brett Kavanaugh's hearing before Congress brought more protests, following the arrests of 70 people for disorderly conduct or unlawful demonstrations by U.S. Capitol Police on Tuesday. As Sen. Chuck Grassley gaveled in the hearing this morning, protesters’ voices could be heard as they were hauled out of the room. In response to Tuesday's protests, President Trump, in an interview with a conservative news site, suggested the demonstrations should be illegal. “I don’t know why they don’t take care of a situation like that,” Trump said. “I think it’s embarrassing for the country to allow protesters. You don’t even know what side the protesters are on.” He added: “In the old days, we used to throw them out. Today, I guess they just keep screaming.” (Photos by @melinamara/The Washington Post)

For decades, men and women have tried to reach the North Pole. They have struggled on skis, hauled sleds and endured a litany of miseries — including death — in pursuit of that goal. But now, the top of the world has become a tourist destination: an extraordinarily expensive one, and one reached only infrequently, but nonetheless achievable with far greater ease than anyone might have imagined even 50 years ago. In 1977, a nuclear-powered icebreaker, the Arktika, became the first surface ship to reach the Pole. The journey has been completed multiple times by several vessels in the decades since. Read more about how global warming has changed what it’s like to travel to the North Pole by clicking the link in our bio. (Photos by Mark Chilvers/for The Washington Post)

The @nytimes published an explosive opinion column Wednesday, written by someone described as “a senior official” in the Trump administration, that said top government officials are actively working to “frustrate” President Trump’s agenda and “worst inclinations.” The person wrote: “We believe our first duty is to this country, and the president continues to act in a manner that is detrimental to the health of our republic. That is why many Trump appointees have vowed to do what we can to preserve our democratic institutions while thwarting Mr. Trump’s more misguided impulses until he is out of office.” The column drew immediate and extraordinary attention from the news media and a public rebuke from the president, who immediately called it “gutless” during a meeting and ceremony with sheriffs shown above. In a statement, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders called the column “just another example of the liberal media’s concerted effort to discredit the President.” Trump later tweeted a one-word, all-caps reaction: “TREASON?” In this photo, Trump turns to the sheriffs before answering a question from a reporter regarding the anonymous op-ed in the East Room of the White House.

Fire trucks pass the Delta Fire, which ignited parts of California's Shasta-Trinity National Forest on Wednesday. The fire erupted in the afternoon and in hours had devoured nearly 8 square miles of timber and brush on both sides of Interstate 5 near the Oregon state line. Parked trucks lined more than two miles of roadway as both directions remained closed to traffic. (Photo by Noah Berger/AP Photo)

In an intense moment during Brett Kavanaugh's hearing Thursday morning, Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) said he is prepared to violate Senate rules and release confidential committee documents — and to risk the consequences. Booker questioned Kavanaugh Wednesday night about his use of the term “naked racial set-aside” and said he would make public documents backing up that assertion. “I openly invite and accept the consequences of releasing that email right now,” Booker said. “The emails being withheld from the public have nothing to do with national security.” Under the committee’s rules, Booker could be expelled from the Senate for releasing such records.
