Youngkin Offers Security for SCOTUS Justices after Biden Admin Refuses

'Without an adequate explanation, one can only assume that you have weaponized federal law enforcement against your party’s political opponents...'

(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.

Not only has the Department of Justice turned a blind eye to the illegal protests outside of the homes of Supreme Court Justices, but the Biden administration has openly endorsed them.

“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.

Youngkin explained that he and Gov. Larry Hogan, R-Md., sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland, calling on him to enforce federal law and stop the protests.

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.

Townhall reported that Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., also called out Garland in a letter, demanding to know why the illegal protesters are not being prosecuted.

“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.
