(Congress Report) – Members of the GOP are accusing the Department of Justice of “actively” attempting to “dissuade” the United States Marshal Service from enforcing 18 USC 1507, which orders them to defend and protect Supreme Court justices. This would not be that surprising given the track record Attorney General Merrick Garland and his DOJ have for the weaponization of federal law enforcement. The corruption runs so deep that these individuals are willing to silence their political opposition by any means necessary, including allowing those supposedly under their protection to be harmed.
The Daily Signal reported that a letter was sent to Attorney General Merrick Garland on May 3 by Sens. Katie Britt from Alabama, Tom Cotton of Arkansas, Ted Cruz of Texas, and last but definitely not least, Mike Lee from Utah. It says that they have, in their possession, “post orders” that are dated for May 19, 2022, which claim that the Marshal Service is not in a position to enforce federal and state law.
“This is the exact kind of thing from the Biden DOJ that continues to cause people across Alabama and America to fear that there is a two-tiered system of justice in our country,” Britt went on to say in an emailed statement given to The Daily Signal. “The simple fact of the matter is that the Administration agreed with the protestors’ politics and willfully chose not to enforce the law.”
“The U.S. Marshals Service should not engage protesters ‘unless they attempt to enter private property,’ the post orders said, according to the senators. This matches what members of the U.S. Marshals Service told The Daily Signal on the ground at Chief Justice John Roberts’ home in January,” the report says.
“June 4 post orders, which came four days before authorities arrested a man for attempting to assassinate Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, reportedly warned the marshals that they ‘should not engage in protest-related enforcement actions beyond that which are strictly and immediately necessary and tailored to ensure the physical safety of the Justices and their families,'” the Daily Signal continued.
The post orders also go on to allegedly give personnel working for the Marshals Service orders that “[a]ny contemplated USMS enforcement action should be coordinated in advance” with the correct U.S. attorney’s office.
“In light of all the clear evidence that DOJ actively sought to dissuade USMS personnel from enforcing Section 1507,” the senators state in their letter, “the Deputy Attorney General’s April 19th testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, the March 29th statement made by USMS Director Davis, and your continued failure to amend your March 1st testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee all raise a number of troubling questions regarding DOJ’s dishonesty and impropriety with respect to its handling of this matter.”
Not long after the leaked draft opinion hit the internet indicating that Roe v. Wade was about to be overturned, a radical left-wing pro-abortion group known as Ruth Sent Us started pushing its protesters to show up at the private residences of the justices who were voting to overturn the controversial decision. This included Justices Amy Coney Barrett, Samuel Alito, Brett Kavanaugh, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, and Chief Justice John Roberts.
Another radical group, ShutDownDC, who previously protested outside of Missouri Republican Sen. Josh Hawley’s house and the home of now former Fox News host Tucker Carlson, also wanted its members to show up outside the houses of the aforementioned justices and went so far as to offer bounties for sightings of them.
The Daily Signal stated, “This protesting has frequently occurred in spite of 18 U.S. Code 1507, which forbids picketing or parading ‘in or near a building or residence occupied or used by such judge, juror, witness, or court officer’ with the intent of intimidating or influencing that person.”
“As the senators pointed out, Garland has since admitted that it is a federal crime to protest outside a judge’s home with the intent of influencing that judge, but he has not enforced that law, though both Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin and former Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan requested that he do so. Garland also claimed in March that the U.S. marshals “on scene” make the decision ‘whether to make an arrest,'” the article added.
Rep. Jim Jordan, an Ohio Republican serving as the Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, has launched a probe into the directives given to the marshals, stating in a letter of his own addressed to U.S. Marshal Service Director Ronald Davis that “the training materials provided to the U.S. Marshals strongly suggest that the Biden Administration is continuing to weaponize federal law enforcement agencies for partisan purposes.”
“While authorities apprehended the man who intended to do harm to Justice Kavanaugh, we are aware of no other arrests or charges for agitators demonstrating outside of the justices’ homes—despite the actions clearly violating federal law,” Jordan commented in the letter, as per a story published by The Hill.

Time to quit “charging” and investigating. Start impeachment and commence arrests, starting at the white house.
We need protect all Judges that have been threatened by these criminals! If we need to send out our Military men and women to protect them. The President must be stopped and replaced! This action is criminal, and
he must be taken out of office! This should be the end of his Presidency! If the DOJ is at fault here by not protecting these Judges!
Time to threaten and intimidate Garland at his home and harass his family…. Just like the protesters did at the homes of the Justices…. You know a Quid Pro Quo, of sorts
Protecting all judges stay jobs and I support them. DOJ is fault to choose Biden’s president worse and they must remove out officials. Trump in 2024
Garland is a puppet for Biden.Remember he was turned down from being a Justice!
How about adding “deliberately leaving ” the US Border Open and allowing the invasion of illegal aliens and their unprotected children to storm our country. I guess the current governments need to supply their
