Protesters chased Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh on Thursday night outside an event in Washington, welcoming him with a shout of "Impeach Kavanaugh" and a big screen that replayed the accusations of congressional witness Christine Blasey Ford.

Demonstrations outside the annual party of the Federalist Society, where Kavanaugh was the main speaker, continued a series of public harassments against conservatives in recent years.

The screen showing Ford's testimony – in which he accused Kavanaugh of sexual harassment when they were teenagers – was in a truck rolled into the event by the liberal activist group Demand Justice, The Washington Post reported.

Kavanaugh has repeatedly denied the allegations and confirmed them to the Supreme Court with a narrow margin in the Senate in October 2018, shortly after Ford gave his testimony to Congress.

"Brett Kavanaugh apparently thinks one year is enough time for the public to forget his lies from the confirmation process," Brian Fallon, executive director of Demand Justice, said, according to USA Today. "The more public presence he asserts, the more damage he does to the legitimacy of the court."

Thursday's engagement engagement was the first for Kavanaugh in front of a large group since he was confirmed, The Post reported.

Once inside, Kavanaugh spoke to more than 2,000 people who were more supportive.

"I signed up for what I knew would be a bad process – maybe not that bad – but my friends did not," he said in his speech. "But in the midst of it all, they stand, and they stand by me."

Kavanaugh added that he was "optimistic about the future of America and our independent court."

Leonard Leo, executive vice president of the Federalist Society and White House adviser on judicial appointments, said he thought Kavanaugh was teaching attendees a lesson about persistence in the face of adversity.

"In today's culture, when you support certain principles, you will be attacked, and you must have the courage to go through it," he said, according to USA Today.

Other conservatives targeted by protesters in recent years include Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, former White House press secretary Sarah Sanders and former Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.
