Biden admin accused of essentially endorsing protests at homes of SCOTUS justices

Protests broke out last week after Politico published a leaked U.S. Supreme Court draft opinion which showed that a majority of the justices are set to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Some of the pro-abortion activists have turned up at the conservative justice’s homes, a practice that some critics say the Biden administration has all but endorsed. 

Psaki dodges, mostly

The Daily Wire noted that White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was asked last Thursday what President Biden’s position on such protests would be after a left-wing group revealed the justices’ home addresses.

“I don’t have an official U.S. Government position on where people protest,” Psaki was quoted as telling Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy. “I want it — we want it of course to be peaceful.”

“I think we shouldn’t lose the point here, the reason people are protesting is because women across the country are worried about their fundamental rights that have been law for 50 years,” she continued.

“Their rights to make choices about their own bodies and their own health care are at risk. That’s why people are protesting — they’re unhappy, they’re scared,” Psaki insisted.

Violating federal law

In fact, U.S. federal law actually prohibits demonstrating outside of a judge’s home “with the intent of interfering with, obstructing, or impeding the administration of justice.”

Conservative Twitter users were quick to point out the protests’ illegal nature, with Fox News host Marc Thiessen asking, “Where is the justice department? Why are these people not being told to disperse or face arrest?”

Fellow Fox News host Steve Hilton spoke as well, tweeting, “Biden’s mobs trying to disrupt the proceedings of the nation’s highest court, undermining the rule of law.”

Town Hall political editor Guy Benson seemed to agree with that assessment, complaining that the Biden administration had “effectively endorsed” the demonstrations.

For his part, former Attorney General Bill Barr told Fox News that he “was appalled” that the president “didn’t just come out and condemn this.”

“It really to me to, you know, to allow the doxxing of Supreme Court justices,” Barr said of the White House’s response.
