(Liberty Bell) – A report from The Western Journal has revealed that GOP Virginia Gov. Glenn Younkin is stepping into a gap that was created by Biden’s Justice Department in order to help ensure the safety of Supreme Court justices and their families in the wake of the draft opinion leak concerning the overturning of Roe v. Wade.
Crazy left-wing protesters have been going to the homes of conservatives justices such as Samuel Alito, John Roberts, and Brett Kavanaugh, all located in Virginia and Maryland following the leak of a draft majority opinion in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.
“Alito, who wrote the draft, Kavanaugh, Neil Gorsuch, Amy Coney Barrett and Clarence Thomas have reportedly signed on to the opinion, which would overturn the 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade. Roe struck down all state laws banning abortion, making it a national right,” the Western Journal reported.
Some of the protesters outside Justice Alito’s home could be heard yelling, “F*** you, Alito,” and “Abort the court.”
This is how desperate these folks are to protect their right to kill unborn children. If that isn’t the definition of sick and twisted I don’t know what is.
Last night, radical leftists held threatening and intimidating protests outside Justice Alito's Virginia home.
"F— you Alito" they screamed.

Youngkin, making an appearance on Fox News host Neil Cavuto’s program on Wednesday, said, “This leak was done in order to influence and, oh, by the way, to intimidate our justices. “And that’s exactly what these parades and picket lines and demonstrators are trying to do is influence and intimate our justices.”
“Youngkin said he and GOP Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland on Wednesday calling on him to enforce federal law and shut down the protests at justices’ homes,” the WJ report stated.
The letter stated, “While protesting a final opinion from the Supreme Court is commonplace when done on the steps of the Court or in the public square, the circumstances of the current picketing at the Justices’ private homes in residential neighborhoods are markedly different.”

The two then cited a federal law that makes it illegal to protest at judges’ homes with the intent to try and influence them to make a decision regarding a case.
Youngkin then went on to point out that the draft opinion is not a final ruling.
“It’s a draft ruling, and clearly these demonstrations are being pulled together to try to influence the final outcome, and that is prohibited based on federal statute,” he explained.
“This is wrong. We have justices who have small children. They have neighbors and families,” Youngkin said.

Youngkin then revealed that he has asked local law enforcement authorities to set up a perimeter around each of the justices’ homes in the state of Virginia. State police are also on standby and are ready to provide assistance if necessary.

In the letter to Garland, Youngkin and Hogan said, “It is in your hands to ensure that applicable federal law is enforced to preserve the integrity of our American judicial system and the safety of our citizens.”
They then concluded the letter by asking the attorney general to enforce the law.
“It is critical that our Department [of Justice] acts to preserve the safety and standards of the highest court in the land,” the governors went on to write. “There is simply too much at stake.”

“At a news briefing on Monday, White House press secretary Jen Psaki refused to concede that protesting outside of justices’ homes is wrong,” the report said.
“Yes, we are a country that promotes democracy, and we certainly allow for peaceful protest in a range of places in the country,” she stated.

Psaki then took things a step further on Tuesday by saying that “we certainly continue to encourage” protests at justices’ homes.
