WASHINGTON — Mike Davis, Founder and President of Article III Project (A3P), issued the following statement after President Biden signed the Supreme Court Police Parity Act into law.
“It is inexcusable that it took Democrats 46 days from the illegal leak of the draft Supreme Court decision — including daily illegal intimidation campaigns at justices’ homes and even a middle-of-the-night assassination attempt — to pass a simple measure to increase security.
“It is also inexcusable—impeachable—that Attorney General Merrick Garland has refused to prosecute those obstructing justice under Section 1507 of the federal criminal code by illegally intimidating justices and their families in their homes while they are deciding a pending case.
“President Biden, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senator Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, and too many other Democrat politicians fanned the flames of hatred and violence that directly led to these illegal home protests, the doxxing of federal judges, and the predictable and predicted assassination attempt.
“In 2020, U.S. District Judge Esther Salas witnessed her 20-year-old son Daniel’s murder and her husband Mark’s serious wounding by a deranged gunman who came to their home. Biden, Pelosi, Schumer, and Garland have recklessly endangered the lives of justices and their families,” Davis said.
The Article III Project (A3P) was founded by veteran GOP operative and attorney Mike Davis, who, after helping win the Senate confirmation battles of Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, developed the reputation as a “take-no-prisoners conservative eager to challenge the left with hardball tactics,” as reported in The New York Times. A3P defends constitutionalist judges, punches back on radical assaults on judicial independence (like court-packing) and opposes judicial and other nominees who are outside of the mainstream.
Davis previously served as Chief Counsel for Nominations to Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) on the United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary and led the Senate confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh and a record number of circuit court judges.
