Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) declined Thursday to speak against controversial “bounties” from a liberal activist group on conservative Supreme Court justices.

ShutDownDC offered $50 for confirmed sightings of Brett Kavanaugh, Samuel Alito, Amy Coney Barrett, Clarence Thomas, and Chief Justice John Roberts, and $200 if these conservative justices are still at a location 30 minutes after the initial sighting.
The payment offer came after Kavanaugh was forced to exit a Washington, D.C., restaurant earlier this month where protestors had gathered.
Fox News correspondent Hillary Vaughn questioned Warren Thursday about these rewards for Supreme Court sightings and received silence in return.
“An activist group is offering to pay people if they send in the locations of justices,” Vaughn said to Warren. “Do you think that this has gone too far at this point?”

According to Fox News, Warren did answer other questions about abortion before closing the car door.
As CBN’s Faithwire has reported, Warren has been a fierce critic of the Supreme Court’s recent decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision legalizing abortion across the U.S.
She has vocally called for expanding the high court and has pledged to fight on for abortion.
“This court has lost legitimacy. They have burned whatever legitimacy they still may have had after their gun decision, after their voting decision, after their union decision,” Warren recently said. “They just took the last of it and set a torch to it with the Roe v. Wade opinion.”
The senator has also gone after crisis pregnancy centers, calling these organizations that come alongside pregnant women deceptive. She has implored federal and state governments to take action against them.
“These are deceptive outfits that front for groups that are trying to harass or otherwise frighten people who are pregnant to keep them from seeking an abortion, and they do so under the cover of pretending to offer abortion services,” Warren said during a recent press conference.
