Senator Ted Cruz grilled the Assistant Attorney General for the Criminal Division today on why the DOJ won’t follow the law and arrest activists who protest at the homes of the Supreme Court Justices.
Cruz even asked why their selective decisions to follow that law mirror political decisions coming from the White House.

Cruz noted the law that Congress established in 18 U.S. Code § 1507 makes it illegal for anyone to protest outside of the homes of Supreme Court Justices.
He also noted the one deranged criminal, spurred on by the violent rhetoric encouraged by Democrats, who tried to assassinate Justice Kavanaugh.
Cruz grilled Kenneth A. Polite Jr. on why they won’t follow this law, and Polite kept dancing around the issue, noting they had prosecuted one person for their conduct during these protests.
But Cruz pressed him further and it turns out that even that one prosecution wasn’t charged under 18 U.S. Code § 1507. In other words, they have arrested no one and Polite couldn’t explain it. Or at least he chose not to.
To everyone watching it’s clear that the DOJ isn’t following this law because they want protesters there. This White House and DOJ want abortion to be the law of the land again and now they are fighting to make that happen, by not arresting these protesters and suing states who dare to ban abortion, among other things.
It’s an absolute lie in my opinion when Polite claims politics doesn’t influence their decisions. This DOJ is as political as Obama’s DOJ in nearly everything they do, if not more so.
