Biden DOJ 'legitimizing' attacks on pro-life centers by not prosecuting Kavanaugh home protesters: Sen. Lee

Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, said Sunday that he believes the Biden administration, in not condemning ongoing protests outside Supreme Court justices’ homes, is condoning actions against justices who might sign the opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade. 

“What we’ve seen is a deliberate attempt to isolate, demonize, and intimidate those justices signing Justice Alito’s opinion, which everyone should read by the way – it is fantastic,” Lee said in an appearance on “Fox News Sunday.” 

“The Justice Department has turned a blind eye to blatant violations of 18 US Code § 1507 – the provision that prohibits people from showing up at the home of a Supreme Court justice to protest,” he added. “By not condemning those, by not prosecuting them, the Biden administration is propelling this and legitimizing the attacks.”

Pro-abortion protests resumed outside the Maryland home of Justice Brett Kavanaugh just hours after a California man showed up with a gun, knife, zip ties, and burglary tools as part of an alleged assassination plot. Lee’s remarks to Fox News host Shannon Bream came after President Biden last week signed a bill providing more protection for justices and their families.
