Updated, 2:50 p.m. EST: Brennan had barely opened his mouth to begin his testimony when a protester interrupted him. The woman, who appears to be a member of antiwar group Code Pink, was swiftly escorted by police at the request of Sen. Feinstein.
Seconds later, a man in the chamber interrupted Brennan again shouting against the U.S. drone program. Then another woman stood up to repeat the message. “Do your job” the protester shouted at Feinstein, decrying the death of civilians in Yemen and Pakistan.
Feinstein has now asked to clear the chamber, calling a recess. She says that Code Pink protesters will not be permitted back into the hearing.
