White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki declined to say whether President Joe Biden condemned efforts to intimidate Supreme Court justices by posting their addresses online and protesting outside their homes.
A leftist group called Ruth sent us published the home addresses of the court’s six conservators judges online, he called them “extremists” and on Tuesday announced a May 11 protest outside their homes after a leaked draft opinion revealed the probable overturning by Roè v. WadeMonday. Psaki refused to say whether Biden supported the group’s shares at a press conference on Thursday.
“Look, I think the president’s point of view is that there is a lot of passion, a lot of fear, a lot of sadness from many, many people across the country for what they saw in that leaked document,” Psaki said when he was told. Fox News’ Peter Doocy was asked if Biden supported these actions.
“Obviously we want people’s privacy to be respected. We want people to protest peacefully if they want to, to protest, “Psaki said.” This is certainly what the president’s point of view would be.
Doocy: These activists have posted a map with the home addresses of the Supreme Court justices. Is this the kind of thing this president wants?
Psaki: “I think the President’s point of view is that there is a lot of passion.”
