DOJ Silent On Abortion Protests Violating Federal Law

Written By Finish The Race

The Department of Justice (DOJ) was established following the ratification of the U.S. Constitution, which took place on June 21, 1788.

“The Office of the Attorney General was created by the Judiciary Act of 1789 (ch. 20, sec. 35, 1 Stat. 73, 92-93), as a one-person part-time position.  The Act specified that the Attorney General was to be “learned in the law,” with the duty “to prosecute and conduct all suits in the Supreme Court in which the United States shall be concerned, and to give his advice and opinion upon questions of law when required by the President of the United States, or when requested by the heads of any of the departments, touching any matters that may concern their departments.”

With this charter in mind, why have there not been any arrests, by the DOJ, of the abortion activists protesting outside conservative Supreme Court Justices’ homes? There are in direct violation of the federal law that prohibits protests with intent to “influence” federal officials and the outcome of a court case.

Publicly organized, these radical pro-abortion activists are intimidating the Justices who reportedly voted to uphold a Mississippi abortion law, which in effect overturns ROE v. Wade. The catalyst of the protests was an unauthorized leak of a majority draft opinion from the Supreme Court indicting what Justices voted in the affirmative, Chief Justice Roberts’ vote is still unknown.

Federal U.S. code 1507, states that any individual who “pickets or parades” with the “intent of interfering with, obstructing, or impeding the administration of justice, or with the intent of influencing any judge, juror, witness, or court officer” near a U.S. court or “near a building or residence occupied or used by such judge, juror, witness, or court officer” will be fined, or “imprisoned not more than one year, or both.”

Despite the language included in the federal statute, Attorney General Merrick Garland has not issued a public statement addressing the protests.

According to a senior fellow at the National Review Institute and Fox News contributor Andy McCarthy, the Biden DOJ is being silent on this for the same reason as the White House: “They are elevating their political interest in portraying the draft Supreme Court opinion as extreme over their constitutional duty to execute the laws faithfully and protect both the Court and the justices.”

“I would note that months ago, when Attorney General Garland unjustifiably dispatched the FBI to investigate parents who were protesting the inclusion of racist and anti-American materials in school curricula, Garland claimed that the Justice Department had an interest in protecting teachers and school administrators. Not only was it untrue that schools were under siege; the relationship between parents and schools is a state and local issue, not a federal one — hypothetically, if a parent were to assault a teacher, it would be a state crime, not a federal one,” continued McCarthy.

McCarthy referred to a DOJ memo from last fall, directing the FBI to investigate “threats of violence” at school board meetings in order to combat threats against school officials by angry parents. Garland received massive backlash for his directive because it came just days after the National School Board Association (NSBA) wrote a letter to Biden asking his administration to treat parent protests at school board meetings as possible acts of “domestic terrorism.”
