White House refuses to condemn protests at SCOTUS justices homes

Questions have been raised in the wake of the White House press secretary refusing to condemn protests taking place outside of the homes of several conservative Supreme Court justices over the possible overturning of Roe v. Wade.

According to The Daily Wire press secretary Jen Psaki said on Tuesday that the administration supports “peaceful” protests outside the homes of Supreme Court justices.

Her statement came in the wake of reports that Justice Samuel Alito had to be moved to an undisclosed location by the Secret Service over growing safety concerns.

“I think I said yesterday, but I’m happy to repeat because I think it’s important for everybody to hear that the president’s long-standing view has been that violence, threats, and intimidation of any kind have no place in political discourse,” Psaki said Tuesday. “And we believe, of course, in peaceful protests.”

“So, I know that there’s an outrage right now, I guess, about protests that have been peaceful to date, and we certainly continue to encourage that outside of judges homes,” Psaki later added. “And that’s the president’s position.”

Frustration by the left erupted after a leaked draft resolution was revealed by Politico, which stated that the high court is likely set to overturn Roe this summer.

The pro-abortion left has protested continually since the leak, and some pro-abortion groups have moved the stage from public demonstrations to taking their demonstrations to the justice’s homes, seemingly in an attempt to put pressure on the right-leaning justices.

Multiple Republicans have called out the administration for not condemning the protesters going to the homes of the Supreme Court justices.

“None of these Democrats care. Joe Biden won’t condemn it. The White House won’t condemn the leak. Instead, they sit back and say, ‘Oh, isn’t that interesting,’” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said.

He added: “These thugs have no business at the private homes of any government official, these Supreme Court justices or anyone else.”

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) tweeted, “We can’t tolerate intimidation as a political tool It’s 1 thing to peacefully demonstrate & another to undermine institutions like SCOTUS+harass justices at home bc of a decision u might not like And ANYONE making threats of violence should be arrested & prosecuted.”
