Jim Jordan Opens Investigation into US Marshals Failing to Arrest Protesters Outside Supreme Court Justices’ Homes

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) has opened an investigation into the handling of protesters outside Supreme Court Justices’ homes by U.S. Marshals.

After the SCOTUS abortion ruling leaked, violent mobs gathered outside justices’ homes but the U.S. Marshals failed to arrest them.

Jordan said: “Following the Dobbs leak, some Supreme Court justices faced relentless protests at their homes, seemingly intending to influence the Court’s decision.

“These types of ‘protests’ clearly violate federal law.

“But U.S. Marshals were told not to make any arrests. Why?”

Jordan sent a letter to U.S. Marshals Service Director Ronald L. Davis that said: “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.”

Sen. Katie Britt (R-AL) said in a March Senate Appropriations subcommittee hearing that the training material said:

“Avoid, unless absolutely necessary, criminal enforcement actions involving the protest or protestors, particularly on public space.

“Do 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.”

Attorney General Merrick Garland told Britt:

“The marshals have been advised, and they know — the marshals on the ground have full authority to arrest people under any federal statute including that federal statue.

“But they have to make the determination on the ground whether they can do that in a manner that is safe and able to protect their main mission.

“But that doesn’t mean that they are in any way precluded from bringing other kinds of arrests.”
