Jan 6th Hearings Call Out Conservatives and Ignore Liberals

  • Executive, The Hill

By: Ophelia Garrett

In Brief: 

The January 6 Committee opened its fourth public hearing Tuesday with complaints about protests at the homes of election officials across the country, while remaining silent about protests at the homes of Supreme Court justices; not to mention threatened violence and assassination attempts.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) condemned then-President Donald Trump for not condemning the 2020 protests, while failing to mention that the Biden White House has encouraged protests outside the homes of Supreme Court justices against existing federal law.

The Background:

During Tuesday’s hearings on the January 6th protest, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), as well as others, claimed to feel unsafe due to protesters outside the homes of lawmakers in favor of the Biden Administration. Yet, the White House has encouraged protesters to gather outside the homes of conservative Justices, breaking federal law. 

Protesters have gathered at the homes of Chief Justice John Roberts, Justice Brett Kavanaugh, Justice Samuel Alito, and Justice Amy Coney Barrett, as a response to the leak of the potential upcoming Dobbs v. Jackson decision. 

The Senate passed a bill in May that would provide more security, but the bill was stalled by the Democrat-controlled House for over a month. 

All of this has occurred while President Biden has yet to personally address or condemn the attempted assassination of Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
