A protester got rare access Tuesday to deliver a direct protest of Donald Trump as he entered the capitol to talk tax cuts with Republican senators.
“Why are you talking about tax cuts when they should be talking about treason?” the protester yelled as Trump passed by. “This president has conspired with agents of the Russian government to steal an election. We should be talking about treason in Congress ...”

The protester has been identified as “Ryan Clayton, same activist who tricked CPAC attendees into waving Russian flags during Trump's speech.”
