The Department of Justice appears to have discouraged the U.S. Marshals Service from arresting protesters illegally demonstrating at the homes of the Supreme Court justices, according to internal materials obtained by a United States senator.
During a hearing Tuesday, Sen. Katie Britt, R-Ala., revealed training slides reportedly from a “whistleblower in DOJ who was concerned about the attorney general’s misleading testimony before the Judiciary Committee.” Those slides were used to prepare U.S. Marshals personnel for their protective details outside of justices’ homes, according to the senator.
Britt said the DOJ explicitly discouraged U.S. Marshals from enforcing the law against the protesters without coordination with the relevant U.S. attorney’s office, warning that it would be “counterproductive” for the marshals to make arrests on cases that the DOJ “will not charge and prosecute.”
“Not a single person has been prosecuted for illegally harassing Supreme Court justices outside of their homes,” Britt said after the hearing. “The reason is crystal clear: The Department of Justice has willfully chosen not to enforce federal law.”
The slides stand in contradiction to Attorney General Merrick Garland’s previous assertion to lawmakers that the decision to arrest the protesters lies with the U.S. Marshals. Garland also admitted that it is a federal crime under 18 U.S.C. § 1507 to protest outside a judge’s home with the intent of influencing that judge.

A clear violation of law and the left does nothing. Meanwhile, garland had boasted they would arrest one thousand more j6 attendees.
We are supposed to believe that when hoards of left wing terrorists were harassing Supreme Court Justices in open violation of a law, Obergruppenfuhrer Garland didn’t wonder WHY the terrorists weren’t being arrested, as is required by law? No doubt, Democrat supports are that stupid and naive, but most are not.
