Pro-abortion activists protested outside of Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s home on Wednesday evening after Jen Psaki encouraged the illegal protests.
Protesters are trying to intimidate conservative justices in an effort to change the draft opinion on Roe v Wade.
It is a federal crime to go to a judge’s residence to influence decisions.
“[It’s] not a valid form of protest because it’s a violation of the law. There is time and place for protests, and the federal statute makes it clear if you go to the house of a judge, the residence of a judge to influence the judge in his decisions and demonstrate that that’s a federal crime,” former Attorney General Bill Barr told Jesse Watters.
Jen Psaki on Tuesday said Joe Biden continues to encourage ‘peaceful protests’ outside of homes of conservative Supreme Court justices.
