does anyone else worry about the safety of Federal judges?

since they are such big obstacles to Trump's plans... are we sure that it couldn't happen here? I obviously hope not, but this administration is beyond nuts, and clearly has authoritarian designs.

1. Nope. I used to work w US Marshals and they oversee Court security in all aspects.

They're in good hands.

3. No, for two reasons

First, court police officers, at every level, are first-rate LEO's who take their responsibilities seriously. They won't let their charges be endangered.

Second, each day, Donald Trump's support is diminishing. Notice how the Republican-led Congress isn't following his "direction." Read the transcript of his interview with Tucker Carlson: even this conservative journalist doesn't believe the president.

4. Blowback would be off the charts

The blowback from other judges and the public from a perceived killing would be major since it would signal totalitarianism. Same with killing politicians.

Corruption/bribery on the other hand is possible.
