In Wisconsin, police are investigating after an unknown assailant threw at least one Molotov cocktail into an office of Wisconsin Family Action (WFA), a pro-life group.
Radical leftists have a disturbing history of resorting to violence when policy decisions don’t go their way.
President of the pro-life group, Julaine Appling, told police that someone had thrown the cocktail into her offices at roughly 6 a.m. on Sunday. Someone also vandalized the outside of the building with the statement: “if abortions aren’t safe then you aren’t either.” Take a look:

Police released a statement that reads: “The Madison Police Department understands members of our community are feeling deep emotions due to the recent news involving the United States Supreme Court.”
“Early Sunday morning, our team began investigating a suspicious fire inside an office building on the city’s north side. It appears a specific non-profit that supports anti-abortion measures was targeted.”
The arson incident is an ongoing investigation and police believe it’s connected to recent revelations in Washington that the Supreme Court is likely to overturn Roe v. Wade in June.
A gathering of roughly 100 demonstrators has also appeared outside the homes of Supreme Court justices Brett Kavanaugh and John Roberts, armed with signs as they march along chanting slogans.
One reporter described the protest outside Justice Kavanaugh’s home as an “attempt at intimidation” and “one of the scariest things” he’s ever witnessed.
Douglas Blair, who works as a news editor for The Daily Signal, appeared on Fox & Friends to describe what he witnessed outside Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh’s home.
He called the protests an “attempt at intimidation” and noted that Joe Biden and the Democrats have failed to condemn the demonstrations.
“This is an attempt at intimidation,” Blair said. “And I think it really says a lot, too, that the Biden administration is willing to absolutely let these justices out to dry.”
Senator Ted Cruz revealed that some Republicans believe the person who leaked the draft Supreme Court decision is “one of those twelve law clerks” who work directly for the justices.
Cruz continued, “Well, that was the intent of this clerk, we’ve got left-wing groups now that have published the addresses of justices.”
“The intent of this clerk was to bully and threaten and intimidate the justices to changing their votes and I’ve got to say this week, it was shameful that the White House refused to condemn violent protesters threatening the families of the Supreme Court,” he said.
Whoever leaked the draft of the Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade was committed a crime and could be charged with obstruction of justice, according to former Attorney General Bill Barr.
Chief Justice JohnRoberts has reportedly ordered the marshal of the court to begin an investigation into the leak. The goal of the investigation is to discover who leaked Justice Samuel Alito’s ruling striking down the landmark 1973 decision.
“It really is unprecedented,” former Attorney General Barr explained, adding that the person could face charges of obstructing the administration of justice and “the due process of justice. Obstruction means you’re attempting to influence through some kind of wrongdoing. I don’t think it’s a stretch,” he said.
Cruz added, “This is the culmination of a multiyear campaign from Senate Democrats to politicize and destroy the court, and it’s had many aspects.”
“It is disgraceful, and Joe Biden used to be chairman of the Judiciary Committee,” Cruz said. “Joe Biden knows it’s disgraceful, he’s literally threatening the lives of these justices by the mob they’re unleashing, it’s the same thing we saw with Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots where the left embraced them, and now they’re embracing mob violence to get their partisan outcome.”
Bill Barr explained, “The chief would’ve had the option, perhaps he still will, to appoint a counsel. A special counsel. Not in the classical criminal sense, but the court can appoint a counsel and bring in a former US attorney or someone with a law background.”
“I’m sure he would get the support he needed from the FBI or any other law enforcement agency,” Barr said.
“Our institutions have become increasingly politicized, but I never imagined this could happen to the Supreme Court, which has always protected its confidentiality, and for someone to let this out in order to influence the final decision is really beyond the pale,” Barr added.
