Psaki Blasted For “Disgusting” Response to Doxxing of Supreme Court Justices [Video]
White House press secretary Jen Psaki caused an uproar after failing to condemn pro-choice activists planning to protest at Supreme Court justices’ homes.
A reporter asked Psaki about the administration’s stance on leftists sharing a map with Supreme Court justices’ home addresses.
“Look, I think the president’s view is that there’s a lot of passion, a lot of fear, a lot of sadness from many, many people across this country about what they saw in that leaked document,” Psaki said, referring to the leaked draft opinion showing that SCOTUS is poised to overturn Roe v. Wade.
“I don’t have an official U.S. government position on where people protest,” she said.
“We obviously want peoples’ privacy to be respected. We want people to protest peacefully if they want to protest. That is certainly what the president’s view would be.”
Judicial Crisis Network president Carrie Severino posted a clip of the press briefing, writing, “Disgusting that the White House is refusing to condemn this.”
“Does anyone in the Biden Admin have the courage [and] decency to speak out in defense of the physical safety of our nine Supreme Court Justices?” tweeted Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-N.Y.)
“The doxing & intimidation campaign targeting these Justices is illegal [and] Jen Psaki just used her platform to green light it.”
