    Attorney General Merrick Garland is facing growing political pressure
    to enforce federal law that prohibits picketing outside of Supreme
    Court justices’ homes for the purpose of influencing a decision.

    Federal U.S. code 1507, states that any individual who "pickets or
    parades" with the "intent of interfering with, obstructing, or impeding
    the administration of justice, or with the intent of influencing any
    judge, juror, witness, or court officer" near a U.S. court or "near a
    building or residence occupied or used by such judge, juror, witness,
    or court officer" will be fined, or "imprisoned not more than one year,
    or both."


    The DOJ's hands-off approach has left critics baffled.

    Former Trump administration Attorney General Bill Barr told Fox News
    Digital that the "law is crystal clear" and that "protests at a judge’s residence to influence a judge is a federal crime, and the law should
    be enforced."


    Here we have an AG refusing to enforce federal law. There is only one solution, impeachment. Will Pelosi bring articles of impeachment
    against the AG? No.

    The Republicans have a lot of work to do this fall.
