The Biden Justice Department has Been Silent on Whether it Will Enforce a Federal Law Prohibiting Protests at Federal Judges’ Homes
Republicans and others are concerned about the safety of Supreme Court justices who signed on to a draft rule overturning Roe v. Wade after demonstrators showed up at the residences of at least two over the weekend.
Protesting at a private residence of a judge is against federal law.
Despite the federal statute’s text, Attorney General Merrick Garland has not made a public remark on the protests outside conservative justices’ residences.
According to Fox News, Andrew McCarthy, a senior scholar at the National Review Institute and a former federal prosecutor for national security, feels the Justice Department is politicized and has remained mute on the topic.
Dereliction of Duty
“They are elevating their political interest in portraying the draft Supreme Court opinion as extreme over their constitutional duty to execute the laws faithfully and protect both the Court and the justices,” he said.
“I would note that months ago, when Attorney General Garland unjustifiably dispatched the FBI to investigate parents who were protesting the inclusion of racist and anti-American materials in school curricula, Garland claimed that the Justice Department had an interest in protecting teachers and school administrators,” McCarthy added.
