House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) said Tuesday on Fox&Friends that Supreme Court justices are “still under threat” and pushed for the passage of a bill that would provide more security for them, their families, and other staffers.
The bill has been stalled in the Senate for over a month, and is currently being blocked in the House while justices are still being protested outside their homes and a man who intended to murder Brett Kavanaugh was arrested last week.
“They’re now saying they may bring it this week, but this should have been done weeks ago,” Scalise argued. “Again, over a month ago, it came over from the Senate unanimously. This could pass overwhelmingly if they put it on the calendar. I don’t know why they are delaying it, but the Supreme Court justices are still under threat.”
“Why the Justice Department, by the way, isn’t enforcing federal law that says you can’t go and try to intimidate and threaten Supreme Court justices in front of their homes — any kind of federal judges are not by law allowed to be threatened that way, and yet the Justice Department won’t take action. They need to. This is a real concern,” he continued.
It seems the reason why is obvious–the Justice Department and Democrat-controlled Congress is allowing the activists in the American public to threaten and punish the court because they have no way of doing it legitimately themselves. And it has got to stop before someone gets killed.
