Top House Republicans asked President Biden’s chief of staff Ron Klein if the White House is coordinating with protesters who have targeted the homes of conservative members of the Supreme Court.
“We write to seek information about the White House’s role and awareness of the unfair and potentially illegal left-wing intimidation and harassment campaign directed at Supreme Court justices,” Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio-) and Rep. James Comer wrote. (R-Kentucky) In Friday’s letter.
The letter accused the White House of previously “colluding” with the National School Boards Association, urging federal law enforcement to take action against parents opposing far-left school boards.
Jordan and Comer asked the White House to “identify all communications between the President’s Executive Office and left-wing activist groups” that were involved in the demonstrations and “affirmatively confirm that any employee of the President’s Executive Office No. There has been no such communication.”
Passion has raged around the court since earlier this month a leak of a draft ruling by Justice Samuel Alito overturning Roe v. Wade. The landmark 1973 decision enshrined abortion rights in the United States, which conservative jurists have spent decades working to reverse.
Jordan and Comer are ranking members of the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees and are in line to become Speakers in the mid-2022 midterm to take Republicans back to the House.
