Democrat Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer continues to face intense backlash for threatening Supreme Court Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch.
On Wednesday, Chuck Schumer made it as clear as possible when he threatened Supreme Court Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch if they dared rule against an abortion case that was before the Supreme Court of the United States.
A spokesman for Senator Chuck Schumer tried to spin what he said in front of the SCOTUS into: ‘He was talking about payback against Republicans in the 2020 election.’
That excuse was almost laughable when weighed against the facts.
Chuck Schumer standing outside the Supreme Court said:
“I want to tell you, Gorsuch, I want to tell you, Kavanaugh… You have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”
There’s a hell of a lot of “YOU’s” in there For Chuck Schumer to claim later he was talking about “Republicans”
Chief Justice John Roberts later rebuked Schumer’s comments, saying the comments were “not only inappropriate, they are dangerous.”
Chuck Schumer Facing Censure
After Chuck Schumer’s comments became known Republican Sen. Josh Hawley’s (R-MO) indicated that he intends to introduce a measure to censure Schumer.
Hawley’s office released the following statement:
Tonight U.S. Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) announced he will introduce a motion to censure U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) for inciting violence against U.S. Supreme Court Justices. In a pro-abortion rally in front of the Supreme Court today, Senator Schumer threatened Justices by name saying, “I want to tell you, Gorsuch. I want to tell you, Kavanaugh. You have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”
I would call on Schumer to apologize, but we all know he has no shame. So tomorrow I will introduce a motion to censure Schumer for his pathetic attempt at intimidation of #SupremeCourt

Even Democrats Are Going After Chuck E. Sleaze
Jimmy Williams, a senior adviser to Democrat Tom Steyer’s failed presidential campaign, responded to Schumer’s threat by suggesting that Schumer may need to step down.
“Threatening a sitting Justice regardless of their politics is dangerous,” Williams tweeted. “What Schumer said is gross inappropriate and unacceptable. He should clarify his words immediately or step down from leadership. We must be better than this.”

Wait. What? Lawrence Tribe Is Going After Chuck Schumer Too?
The radical insane Leftist Lawrence Tribe has best known as the AOC of law professors, for throwing Resistance bombshells at President Trump.
But even Lawrence Tribe hit Schumer, writing on Twitter, “These remarks by
@SenSchumer were inexcusable. Chief Justice Roberts was right to call him on his comments. I hope the Senator, whom I’ve long admired and consider a friend, apologizes and takes back his implicit threat. It’s beneath him and his office.”
You know you’re doomed when this radical leftist nut calls you out.

A much more sane Professor also had a few words for Shumer’s Shiffshow
Democrat Jonathan Turley, Constitutional Law Professor at George Washington University, also slammed Schumer for his remarks, saying that he sounded like a “stalker.”
“Schumer’s threat to the Court that ‘you will pay the price’ is a direct attack on the integrity of our courts,” Turley wrote “I criticized Trump for his reckless comments about the courts. Where is the chorus of condemnation of Schumer? Schumer sounded more like a stalker than a statesman.”

Could we finally see a Democrat paying the price for spewing their Trump-Hate idiocy?
I won’t hold my breath, but say a little prayer for Justice to finally get served.
