Earlier this week, the Senate unanimously passed legislation to beef up security for SCOTUS and its justices.
The legislation, the Supreme Court Police Parity Act, should have been a quick pass in the House as well.
However, according to Senator John Cornyn (R-TX), House Dems are making “unnecessary” changes to delay the legislation from being approved.
What Are They Doing?
Once signed, the legislation will provide 24-hour security for justices and their families.
If Dems make changes to the legislation, it would have to go back to the Senate for approval again.
That, of course, could lead to more changes before a vote, which would then mean it would have to go back to the House again for approval.
Meanwhile, the far-left gets its way by being able to hassle justices with no repercussions.
Cornyn stated, “Now the House wants to do things like add law clerks and other staff to this, which is really unnecessary because virtually all the law clerks are anonymous.
“They’re not highly visible or recognizable like the justices are, so they’re unlikely to need that kind of protection.
“Plus, our staff here even in Congress is not provided that sort of protection.”
He continued, “While they’re at the Supreme Court, the justices are pretty well protected, but two of the justices have school-aged children.
“They leave to go to the court where they’re protected and their children are left at home or school and are vulnerable to threats or intimidation.
“When Justice Jackson takes over for Justice Breyer, it’ll go from two justices with families to three.”
If this was liberal justices being threatened, you better believe that bill would have already been on Biden’s desk.
I firmly believe Pelosi and company WANT pressure on these justices, so expect them to tinker with this bill, possibly until the Supreme Court has released the formal decision on Roe v. Wade.
