Republican Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin revealed on “Your World” on Wednesday that he and Maryland Governor Larry Hogan sent a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland urging him to prosecute those protesting outside the homes of Supreme Court judges on an early ruling that could overturn Roe v. Wade.

According to a copy of the letter obtained by TmZ Blog, Youngkin and Hogan called on Garland to “provide appropriate resources to protect judges and enforce the law as written.” Both Republican governors offered help from their respective states to secure the homes of judges, but said they needed Garland and the Justice Department to “take the lead.”

“There is simply too much at stake,” reads the last line of the two-page letter.


During an appearance on TmZ Blog, Youngkin pointed to the feds US Code 1507which states that anyone who “pickets or marches” with the “intent of interfering with, obstructing or obstructing the administration of justice, or with the intent of influencing a judge, a juror, witness, or judicial officer” near a United States court or “in the vicinity of a building or residence occupied or used by such judge, juror, witness, or judicial officer” shall be subject to a fine, or “imprisonment not exceeding one year, or both”.

“The status is incredibly clear,” Youngin told host Neil Cavuto. “It basically says that if you parade or picket to try to influence a judge, it’s punishable by up to a year in jail. It seems illegal to me. Of course, this leak was done in order to influence and intimidate our judges. . And that’s exactly what these parades and picket lines are trying to do.”

Over the weekend, protesters picketed the homes of Justice Brett Kavanaugh and Chief Justice John Roberts. Large crowds demonstrated outside the home of Judge Samuel Alito in Virginia on Monday.
