(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin has stepped in to help ensure the safety of Supreme Court justices and their families after the Biden administration refused to do so, according to the Western Journal.
In the wake of the Roe v. Wade draft majority opinion leak, protestors have gone to the private homes of Supreme Court justices Samuel Alito, John Roberts and Brett Kavanaugh in Virginia and Maryland.
The profanity-laced leftist protests outside of the justices’ homes have not escalated to physical violence. Despite laws against protesting on private property, none of the protesters have been arrested.
Last night, radical leftists held threatening and intimidating protests outside Justice Alito’s Virginia home.
“F— you Alito” they screamed.

“This leak was done in order to influence—and, oh, by the way—to intimidate our justices,” Youngkin told Fox News host Neil Cavuto.
“And that’s exactly what these parades and picket lines and demonstrators are trying to do is influence and intimate our justices,” he added.
In the letter, they cited a federal law that makes it illegal to picket or parade at judges’ homes with an intent to influence them in their duties and decisions.
Today, @GovernorVA and I sent a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland calling on the Department of Justice to provide adequate resources to keep the Supreme Court justices and their families safe amid ongoing protests at their homes. pic.twitter.com/6D0bMGSp3q

“Without an adequate explanation, one can only assume that you have weaponized federal law enforcement against your party’s political opponents,” Cotton wrote.
He also suggested that he would impeach Garland in the next congress.
Senator Cotton’s letter to Attorney General Garland deserves wide distribution. More important by far is that the AG enforce the law immediately. pic.twitter.com/ISIKyaXjIq
