Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) on Wednesday accused White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre of “sleeping” with a CNN correspondent after news organizations were able to obtain a new Department of Homeland Security (DHS) report on potential threats to Supreme Court Justices following the leak of a draft opinion on abortion.

The DHS memo warns that because of the national abortion debate, both the public and SCOTUS members could see a boost in threats, such as burning down the Supreme Court and murdering the justices.

The memo, which was dated May 13 and first reported by Axios on Wednesday, has gained traction among major news sites such as CNN. In response, Greene attacked Jean-Pierre, who officially assumed the role of White House press secretary following Jen Psaki’s exit from the role last week.

Greene was particularly furious that lawmakers didn’t get the information before the media.

“HOW does the press know about this terrorist plot to burn down the Supreme Court and murder Justices? And Members of Congress do not know. Is it because Biden’s new @PressSec is sleeping with a CNN National Corespondent?” Greene tweeted Wednesday.

The leaked SCOTUS draft opinion shows that conservative justices are ready to strike down Roe v. Wade, a prospect that has sparked outcry and protests among abortion-rights advocates.

The DHS report said that Supreme Court police noticed a major increase in threats of violence, including some that were directed at SCOTUS justices and the court’s building in Washington D.C., according to CNN. Some of those threats are already being investigated.

“Domestic violence extremists and criminal actors have adopted narratives surrounding abortion rights to encourage violence, likely increasing the threat to government, religious, and reproductive healthcare personnel and facilities and ideological opponents,” the momo says.
