Huge victory today for empty measures as Congress passes a bill to have Marshals do what they already do for SCOTUS Justices while Senate Republicans still block a bill addressing lower court judges' security after a judge's son was killed at their home. https://t.co/3dHfR1xZp6

The bill that passed the Senate is fake, a trivial wording change describing what Marshals already do.
And there's not one word here about how Republicans are blocking a Democratic bill to genuinely improve the security of federal judges after a judge's son was killed at home. https://t.co/GLokenJ2La pic.twitter.com/I644Nxi5RU

“Conservatism consists of exactly one proposition, to wit: There must be in-groups whom the law protects but does not bind, alongside out-groups whom the law binds but does not protect…”
Ahhhhh! Now it all makes sense. They specifically want to make sure that *staff* are not protected because they think they should have to be scared if the name of the leaker gets out? Fascinating stuff! https://t.co/L9Q5cF77N0
