Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio is demanding U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland turn over documents that could explain why the Department of Justice has repeatedly refused to prosecute any threats against Republican-nominated Supreme Court justices following a leak of the Dobbs v. Jackson draft opinion.
In a letter to Garland, Jordan demanded President Joe Biden’s DOJ head turn over all documents and communications with the White House, “including those sent or received by employees of the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Maryland and the United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Virginia,” related to the intimidation campaign against certain SCOTUS justices.
“For several years, prominent Democrats have intimidated and bullied the Supreme Court to resist legal challenges to the left’s radical progressive agenda,” Jordan wrote. “The Biden Administration’s reluctance to condemn these radical efforts—Court-packing proposals, threats to justices and their families, and unsupported recusal demands—has created an environment in which the far left now feels emboldened to harass justices at their private residences.” Jordan said coordinated campaigns from shady left-wing organizations such as Ruth Sent Us — which published the addresses of Supreme Court justices’ homes, downplayed an assassination attempt against Justice Brett Kavanaugh and his family, and encouraged its followers to target Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s children — “appear to be attempts to intimidate and influence the justices’ rulings.”

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
