Susan Rice's Son, John Rice-Cameron, Presses Charges on Kavanaugh Protester Over Stanford Shoving Incident

John Rice-Cameron, the son of former national security adviser Susan Rice, who served under former President Barack Obama, has pressed charges against a fellow student who he claimed shoved him in the chest when he was displaying support for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh at Stanford University last week, according to a report.

Sophomore Melissa Hernandez was handed a citation for misdemeanor battery after the on-campus incident, according to Stanford Department of Public Safety spokesman Bill Larson.

Rice-Cameron is an outspoken supporter of the GOP and serves as president of the Stanford College Republicans. The incident occurred on Tuesday afternoon at White Plaza, where several students from the organization conducted a display of support for Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court.

Hernandez responded to the allegations on Wednesday via Twitter.

The Stanford College Republicans released a statement via Facebook calling the incident an example of "the violent and totalitarian behavior of the unhinged Stanford left" and added that Rice-Cameron is "pressing full charges" against Hernandez.

Rice served as a U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations and as national security adviser during the Obama administration. She hinted at potentially running against Senator Susan Collins, the Maine Republican who cast a deciding vote for Kavanaugh's approval, according to The New Yorker.

Kavanaugh was confirmed following a senatorial battle that stemmed from accusations of sexual misconduct from multiple women, including Christine Blasey Ford, who works as a research psychologist at Stanford and teaches psychology at Palo Alto University.
