Former FBI Intelligence Chief Warns of Threats to Conservative Judges

The man who wanted to kill Judge Kavanaugh used information about his home address, uncovered by the 'anti-fascist' group RuthSentUs.

Former FBI Assistant Director of Intelligence Kevin Brock, has warned of the danger posed to the United States by threats from self-described anti-fascist groups to several conservative judges. ShutDownDC , an Antifa-style group, is offering rewards for tracking down conservative judges who defended a pro-life abortion law in Washington. The organization tweeted that it would pay up to $250 to DC industrial workers if they offered information on the judges.

Because of the violence perpetrated by pro-abortion groups against pregnancy centers and pro-life organizations, Brock alleges that the Justice Department treats threats from these groups lightly and that the groups seek "at a minimum, to intimidate judges and, at worst, physically harm them, so it should be interpreted as a threat by any reasonable person." Brock warns that "the main concern is that the Justice Department is not responding to threats of violence emanating from the left side of the political spectrum as diligently as they do when they emanate from the right side of the political spectrum."

The silence from Democratic politicians also worries Rep. Glenn Grothman (R-Wisc.) "You don't hear left-wing politicians attacking or criticizing leftist groups like Black Lives Matter or Antifa," he commented.

Harassment of Judge Brett Kavanaugh

Fox News host Tucker Carlson mentioned the ShutDownDC group's tweet, during his TV show, to which they responded by saying they received many false ads after Carlson's show, but also got a spike in donations.

The group's tweet, came after protesters disrupted Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh's dinner at a Washington, D.C. restaurant last Wednesday after ShutDownDC tweeted that someone had sent them a tip that he was there.

Judge Kavanaugh was the subject of a failed assassination attempt produced after Dobbs v. Jackson, which overturned the earlier Roe v. Wade ruling. The arrestee is a 26-year-old man, and faces a sentence that could reach life in prison.

The man was able to go to Judge Kavanaugh's home because the extremist organization RuthSentUs had made public the addresses of members of the Supreme Court. This leftist organization has called for the harassment of the justices who passed Dobbs v. Jackson.

Previous attacks unanswered by the judiciary

Taking advantage of limited police resources during the vacations, Antifa demonstrated violently in Portland, Oregon, on July 4, vandalized businesses and terrorized citizens attending a downtown fireworks show and attempted to burn down the federal courthouse.

Portland police asked the FBI to step in to "assume control of specific investigations," allowing "police resources to be used to identify and arrest suspects."

Portland's Democratic mayor, Ted Wheeler, declined to comment on police reports that approximately 100 black-clad rioters vandalized buildings and attacked a hotel security guard who asked them to leave the property.
