The Supreme Court is about to hear oral arguments for a case that could present a significant challenge for Joe Biden and Democrats in 2022.
Joe Biden campaigned on eliminating the death penalty, yet the DOJ is fighting to have a death sentence reinstated against the surviving Boston Marathon Bomber.
The initial sentence was tossed on appeal based on the initial trial judge allegedly excluding evidence.
Complications for Biden
This is a really interesting case for the Biden administration.
With three dead and more than 200 people injured in the attack he helped orchestrate, many liberals believe if there is anyone that should be put to death, it is this man.
The only people in this country that do not want to see Boston Marathon Bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s put to death are bleeding hearts that believe nobody should be put to death for their crimes.
After initially receiving the death sentence for his crime, the sentence was overturned on appeal.
However, the Department of Justice is now fighting that decision, which is surprising considering Joe Biden’s stance on the death penalty.
The DOJ, in its brief, stated, “The court of appeals improperly vacated the capital sentences recommended by the jury in one of the most important terrorism prosecutions in our nation’s history.
“This court should reverse the decision below and put this case back on track toward a just conclusion.”
As usual, when White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was asked to address the conflict of Joe Biden’s stance during the campaign and this appeal, she dodged the question, directing the journalist to address it with the DOJ, adding, “I don’t have anything more on this case.”
