One day after a leftist was arrested for attempted murder at the home of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, Nancy Pelosi insisted to the press that the judges of the Supreme Court are safe.
Republicans have been trying to pass a bill that would extend protection to the families of the justices but Democrats are holding it up for some reason.
Even the liberal media seemed confused by Pelosi’s response when she was asked about this.
The New York Post reports:
Huffy Pelosi insists SCOTUS not in danger after Brett Kavanaugh assassination attempt
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi got in a huff with a reporter while insisting Thursday that Supreme Court justices have adequate protection — even after a serious bid to assassinate Justice Brett Kavanaugh at his Maryland home was foiled just a day earlier.
As Pelosi left her weekly press conference, she stopped to address a reporter who shouted: “You said the justices are protected, but there was an attempt on Justice Kavanaugh’s life.”
“And he’s protected,” Pelosi snapped back. “He’s protected. The justices are protected.”
Congressional Republicans have urged the House to approve a Senate-passed bill that would give the nation’s leading jurists and their families the same level of security as legislators and White House officials. The Senate passed the bill by unanimous consent, but the measure has languished before the House for the past month.
Here’s the video:
YESTERDAY, there was an assassination attempt on a sitting Supreme Court Justice's life.
TODAY, instead of passing the Senate's bipartisan security bill, House Democrats are still in denial…

This looks political and intentional.
The reason @SpeakerPelosi won’t move on a bill protecting Supreme Court Justices is that she wants them to be intimidated, or at least wants pro-choice donors and activists to feel she supports the intimidation effort. She won’t do what’s right even after an assassination attempt

America will be better off when she finally retires.
