Really, Really Bad Day for Garland on the Hill – Takes Three Big Punches from Senators…



The statute:

Whoever, with the intent of interfering with, obstructing, or impeding the administration of justice, or with the intent of influencing any judge, juror, witness, or court officer, in the discharge of his duty, pickets or parades in or near a building housing a court of the United States, or in or near a building or residence occupied or used by such judge, juror, witness, or court officer, or with such intent uses any sound-truck or similar device or resorts to any other demonstration in or near any such building or residence, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both.

The blather:

Attorney General Merrick Garland told Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, that he does not know whether the Department of Justice has brought any charges against protesters under the law banning “picketing or parading” outside a courthouse or judge’s home with the intent to interfere with a case.

Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO drilled down into the anti-Catholic, threatening assault on a family who prayed outside an abortion clinic.

Two…the dems hated “long guns” get a shout out here.

Three…(The asylum rules get a belting there)

Four..and it’s a knockout

Cruz accused Garland of politicizing the Justice Department and prosecuting pro-life groups and conservatives more aggressively than liberal groups. Cruz cited mass protests outside the homes of conservative Supreme Court justices after the Dobbs v. Jackson decision leaked last year.
