Texas Senator Ted Cruz issued an official demand that Attorney General Merrick Garland answer for his lack of interest in protecting the Supreme Court Justices from dangerous illegal protestors. Cruz is a member of the Judiciary Committee.

Cruz sent a letter Thursday about Garland to Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which will hold the hearing titled “A Post-Roe America: The Legal Consequences of the Dobbs Decision.”

“Attorney General Garland was quick to condemn parents who attended school board meetings to protest radical policies pushed by some board members,” Cruz writes in the letter to Durbin. “Yet he has shown little urgency to protect Supreme Court justices despite calls from the Supreme Court marshal and multiple governors to do so.”

Cruz questioned why Garland hasn’t investigated the SCOTUS leak that sparked the protests, to begin with. He also noted that Garland hasn’t done a thing to protect Justices as liberal thugs tried to intimidate them into changing their vote. Cruz was referring to the protests that are still taking place outside of the Justices’ homes:

“Article III of the Constitution guarantees judicial independence by granting judges life tenure and salary protection so they are not influenced by anything but the law and facts in the case before them. Unfortunately, despite clear evidence that federal law was violated by mobs of protesters at the justices’ homes, the head of the Department of Justice, and chief law enforcement officer of the United States, flatly refused to enforce federal law.”

Cruz backs up the fact that his concerns of violence are not unfounded and slammed Garland for not acting after the failed assassination attempt of Justice Kavanaugh:

“In response to these threats, Attorney General Garland merely stated, ‘The Justice Department will not tolerate violence or threats of violence against judges or any other public servants at work, home, or any other location.’ Attorney General Garland’s refusal to act, however, calls into question the sincerity of this statement.”

It is A CRIME in this country to intimidate and threaten any judge. Cruz’s letter demands that Garland answer to the Senate Judiciary Committee for his failure to enforce federal law:

“Attorney General Garland should be asked, under oath, why he refused to act in this instance, as well as detail his plans to uphold judicial independence and the rule of law in the face of future such intimidation campaigns.”
