Biden Attorney General Merrick Garland has already made it clear that he has no problem targeting conservatives for lawful, constitutional political activities. Last year, he sent out a notice to the Department of Justice that demonized and effectively criminalized parents who protested against critical race theory being taught at their schools.
While he has been eager to persecute conservative activists, he seems far less interested in protecting conservative Supreme Court Justices from unlawful intimidation and violence, including Justice Kavanaugh who just had a protester break into his home with the intent to murder him.
There is written law on the books that would allow him to protect Supreme Court Justices, 18 U.S. Code § 1507 – Picketing or parading states that:
Whoever, with the intent of interfering with, obstructing, or impeding the administration of justice, or with the intent of influencing any judge, juror, witness, or court officer, in the discharge of his duty, pickets or parades in or near a building housing a court of the United States, or in or near a building or residence occupied or used by such judge, juror, witness, or court officer, or with such intent uses any sound-truck or similar device or resorts to any other demonstration in or near any such building or residence, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both.
As Breitbart reported, this makes it unlawful to protest outside the home of a judge with the intent to influence a decision they are making.
Garland could have prevented the violent attack against Justice Kavanaugh before it happened, but chose not to. It might be because top politicians within the Democratic party approve of the protesters tactics.
FLASHBACK to May 10:
"Are you comfortable with protests that we saw outside the homes of Supreme Court justices over the weekend?"
