Jim Jordan Says Impeachment ‘On the Table’ for AG Garland

Appearing on Newsmax’s “Rob Schmitt Tonight” on Thursday, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) revealed that impeachment is “on the table” for Attorney General Merrick Garland, as the Biden administration official has refused to take action against protesters who are illegally demonstrating outside of the homes of conservative Supreme Court justices.

Following the June 24 overturning of Roe v. Wade, radical pro-abortion activists doxed conservative Supreme Court justices, posting their addresses online for the world to see. This led to protests outside of the homes of several justices, which are illegal according to 18 U.S. Code § 1507, which prohibits demonstrations outside “a building or residence occupied or used by such judge” with the “intent of influencing any judge.”

The protests soon escalated, as a man showed up outside of the home of Justice Brett Kavanaugh with burglary tools, a handgun, a knife, and pepper spray allegedly planning to kill the justice.

Yet, the Biden administration — more specifically the Department of Justice and AG Garland — has refused to take any action against the protesters who have clearly violated the law by demonstrating outside of the homes of the SCOTUS justices.

Republicans in Congress, including Jordan, have spoken out against the attorney general, saying that he needs to be held accountable for his inaction.

“I think everything’s on the table,” Jordan said.

But first things first, according to the Ohio congressman, the Republicans must win back the majority in Congress before they can take any action.

“The main thing is, we got to take our message to the American people, not get overconfident in campaigning,” Jordan said.

Once the voters give “us the majority in the House, I think everything should be on the table when it comes to the attorney general,” he added.

Jordan went on to point to the section of the U.S. Code which prohibits picketing or parading outside a judge’s or jurist’s home in an attempt to influence the opinion in a case. Judges must be able to make decisions based on the Constitution and the law, not based on the whims or demands of the mob. Allowing these protests means potentially allowing the mob to intimidate a judge into changing their minds regarding a case.

“And he refuses to prosecute any of these protesters, confirming something that I think is very scary,” Jordan stated. “We now have one of the key agencies in the executive branch joining in the effort to intimidate a separate and equal branch of government, the judicial branch. That is scary when that kind of stuff goes on.”

“That’s certainly what it looks like, so that this is one of the reasons I think so many people have concerns,” the GOP congressman added.

Jordan is currently running for reelection in Ohio’s 4th Congressional District against Democrat Tamie Wilson. The general election for his seat will be held on November 8.
