"This kind of behavior is obviously, we will not tolerate it," Garland said. "Last month I met with the Marshal of the [Supreme] Court, I convened a meeting with her, as well as the deputy director of the FBI, the director of the  [U.S.] Marshals Service and with our own law enforcement, our own prosecutors to ensure every degree of protect available is possible."

But after an assassination attempt of Justice Brett Kavanaugh earlier in the day, leftist activists again descended on his home

Despite it being illegal to do so, Garland did not have them arrested.
