Former police chief: DOJ is too busy hassling school parents to investigate Supreme Court harassment

0

WASHINGTON, DC- Hey, who needs to protect members of the third branch of government when there are school parents to harass. Such is the case with the Department of Justice, led by Attorney General Merrick Garland, who unleashed federal law enforcement to target parent who committed the “crime” of wanting what’s best for their children. Pro-abortion zealots breaking federal law by harassing Supreme Court justices? Crickets.

Now, Republicans on the House Oversight Committee are looking into the failure of the DOJ to investigate the protests that have been taking place since a criminal leak of a draft opinion overturning Roe v. Wade was released, Fox News reports.

Garland was missing in action as protests took place not only outside of the Supreme Court itself, but also outside conservative justices’ homes over the past week, a violation of federal law which makes it a crime to attempt to “influence” federal officials to affect the outcome of a court case. Think along the lines of “tampering with a witness” or “tampering with the judicial process.” There is a specific violation of the 18 U.S. Code, 1507, which prohibits such conduct.

It wasn’t until Wednesday that the DOJ addressed the issue in a statement:

“Attorney General Garland continues to be briefed on security matters related to the Supreme Court and Supreme Court Justices,” DOJ spokesman Anthony Coley said.

“The Attorney General directed the U.S. Marshals Service to help ensure the Justices’ safety by providing additional support to the Marshal of the Supreme Court and Supreme Court Police.”

Under U.S. Code 1507, it says that any person who “pickets or parades” 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” near a U.S. court or “near a building or residence occupied or used by such judge, juror, witness, or court officer” will be fined, or “imprisoned not more than one year, or both.”

James Comer (R-KY), ranking member of the Oversight Committee, sent a letter to Garland Friday, asking the DOJ for details on its efforts to “enforce federal laws protecting the integrity of the Supreme Court.”

“In the wake of the unprecedented lead of a draft opinion on a matter currently pending before the Supreme Court, a reactionary wave of violence by radical idealogues has descended upon the country, as crisis pregnancy centers, pro-life organizations and churches have been vandalized and subject to arson attacks and theft of sacred objects,” committee Republicans wrote.

“Other protestors are picketing at Supreme Court Justices’ family residences with the goal of influencing or intimidating the Justices: This likely violates federal law, notwithstanding the Biden Administration and other prominent Democrats stating their support for these unlawful actions. We request further information regarding steps the Justice Department is taking to enforce federal law and ensure the protection of Supreme Court Justices.”

Republicans are demanding the DOJ “stand firm” against any attempt to illegally influence the justices, while asking about any current investigations into protestors who may have violated the law.

“It is unclear whether the Justice Department has been investigating or prosecuting any cases related to the current protests at the Justices’ homes. The recent leaked draft opinion has the potential to undermine the ability of Justices to deliberate on cases of national import. Our system of law and order must stand firm against any illegal attempts to intimidate Justices by mobbing their neighborhoods.”

Fox News Digital reached out to the DOJ for comment, which was not returned.

The DOJ has been under fire for months after Garland directed the FBI to harass and target parents whom he accused of making “threats of violence” at school board meetings last fall.

However it was soon discovered that his threat was prompted by a letter from the National School Board Association (NSBA) found its way to the Biden administration asking for federal intervention against school parents, calling such parent concerns “domestic terrorism.”

Since the draft opinion leaked, the source of which has still not been found, unhinged leftists targeted at least five pro-live crisis pregnancy centers across the country; Catholic churches have also been threatened and vandalized, with some angry pro-abortion zealots interrupting church services recently.

The official opinion in the case, Dobbs v Jackson Women’s Health Organization, is expected to be rendered by the Supreme Court by July.
