During President Trump's visit to Capitol Hill on Tuesday, a protester broke through the media pool and tossed a number of Russian flags at the President.

Reports indicate that the man yelled "Trump is treason" as the President and Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell flashed a thumbs up and walked away.

Watch the footage here:

 

The man was whisked away by security after tossing the flags. He identified himself to reporters as Ryan Clayton of Americans Take Action.

 

 

In February, Clayton and Americans Take Action passed out Russian flags emblazoned with the word "Trump" at the Conservative Political Action Conference, according to a column Clayton wrote for the Huffington Post .

Trump is currently on Capitol Hill to garner support for tax reform. 

More on this as it develops.
