“Boo hoo hoo,” Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) responded Thursday after hearing that Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) has received threats.

In a radio interview on WVOM, Collins, who offered protection to Kavanaugh’s accuser, said that both she and Kavanaugh have received “threats”:

“I think that she needs to come forward. And, I think we need to provide her with any protection that she may ask for, for herself and her family.

“I would note that Judge Kavanaugh also has received some threats and, goodness knows – and I don’t mean to equate myself with either of them – but, my office has received some pretty ugly voicemails, threats, terrible things said to my staff.”

Sen. Collins repeated on Twitter that threats had been made, to which Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) replied:

“Boo hoo hoo. You’re a senator who police will protect. A sexual assault victim can’t sleep in her home tonight because of threats. Where are you sleeping? She’s on her own while you and your @SenateGOP colleagues try to rush her through a hearing.”

But, as WUSA 9 reported after Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) was shot last year, most members of Congress do not get security details:

“Nine members of Congress and senators are protected by traveling Capitol Police bodyguards. The rest are on their own.”
