(FreedomWire.org) – A gathering of roughly 100 demonstrators appeared outside the homes of Supreme Court justices Brett Kavanaugh and John Roberts. These demonstrators are taking to the streets after a draft of the Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade was leaked.
Douglas Blair, who works as a news editor for The Daily Signal, described what he witnessed outside Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh’s home.
Blair called the protests an “attempt at intimidation” and said that Joe Biden and the Democrats have failed to condemn the demonstrations.
“This is an attempt at intimidation,” Blair said. “And I think it really says a lot, too, that the Biden administration is willing to absolutely let these justices out to dry.”
“They’re not going to say, ‘It’s not acceptable for you to go to somebody’s house and yell and scream.’ That’s not how we do it in this country,” he continued.
“I did not see Justice Kavanaugh. My hope is that he wasn’t home,” Blair said.
“My hope is that he was safe with his family somewhere else because it was genuinely one of the scariest things I’ve ever witnessed.”
Senator Ted Cruz revealed that some Republicans believe the person who leaked the draft Supreme Court decision is “one of those twelve law clerks” who work directly for the justices.
Cruz continued, “Well, that was the intent of this clerk, we’ve got left-wing groups now that have published the addresses of justices.”
“The intent of this clerk was to bully and threaten and intimidate the justices to changing their votes and I’ve got to say this week, it was shameful that the White House refused to condemn violent protesters threatening the families of the Supreme Court,” he said.
Whoever leaked the draft of the Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade was committed a crime and could be charged with obstruction of justice, according to former Attorney General Bill Barr.
Chief Justice JohnRoberts has reportedly ordered the marshal of the court to begin an investigation into the leak. The goal of the investigation is to discover who leaked Justice Samuel Alito’s ruling striking down the landmark 1973 decision.
“It really is unprecedented,” former Attorney General Barr explained, adding that the person could face charges of obstructing the administration of justice and “the due process of justice. Obstruction means you’re attempting to influence through some kind of wrongdoing. I don’t think it’s a stretch,” he said.
Cruz added, “This is the culmination of a multiyear campaign from Senate Democrats to politicize and destroy the court, and it’s had many aspects.”
“It is disgraceful, and Joe Biden used to be chairman of the Judiciary Committee,” Cruz said. “Joe Biden knows it’s disgraceful, he’s literally threatening the lives of these justices by the mob they’re unleashing, it’s the same thing we saw with Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots where the left embraced them, and now they’re embracing mob violence to get their partisan outcome.”
Bill Barr explained, “The chief would’ve had the option, perhaps he still will, to appoint a counsel. A special counsel. Not in the classical criminal sense, but the court can appoint a counsel and bring in a former US attorney or someone with a law background. I’m sure he would get the support he needed from the FBI or any other law enforcement agency.”
“Our institutions have become increasingly politicized, but I never imagined this could happen to the Supreme Court, which has always protected its confidentiality, and for someone to let this out in order to influence the final decision is really beyond the pale,” Barr added.
In response to the leak and subsequent protests, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas said, “We can’t be an institution that can be bullied into give you the outcomes you want. The events from earlier this week are a symptom of that.”
Senator Cruz argues that the Left has been inciting violence with their rhetoric. “It featured Chuck Schumer standing on steps of the court calling out justices by name, threatening to unleash the whirlwind, that they won’t know what hit them if they don’t vote the way Schumer wants, that’s incredibly destructive to the court,” he said.
“It features Senate Democrats threatening to pack the supreme court, to add four left-wing justices immediately and grow it to thirteen justices,” Cruz said, “and I think what happened here is you had some left-wing, woke twit who decided that he or she was so upset, that they were going to violate the trust they owe to their justice, to the court, to the rule of law, and, Maria, it is difficult to overstate just how destructive this is to the court.”
