Sara Carter: There’s People That Could Take Schumer’s Threats Seriously

Sara A. Carter told Fox Business host Lou Dobbs Wednesday that Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer’s, D-NY, threats against Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, could be taken seriously by “people out there” who aren’t stable.

Schumer made the comments at a Planned Parenthood rally Wednesday that was convened as the Supreme Court heard arguments on an abortion case. The case, which involves a law in Louisiana that requires abortion doctors have admitting privileges to the state’s local hospitals, remains under deliberation.

“What we’re seeing now is a ramping up of the Democrats, Lou. This is what happens and it is very dangerous because when Schumer makes a statement like this publicly… I mean he’s really calling on other people,” said Carter, “It’s a very heated moment, we don’t know what those threats really mean to other people, you know, there’s people out there that are not stable and they could take that seriously and that’s a very serious threat.”

Schumer threatened the Justices earlier Wednesday. He said, “Republican legislatures are waging a war on women, all women, and they’re taking away fundamental rights. 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.”

Chief Justice John Roberts responded to Schumer in a written statement released shortly after the threats were made.

“Justices know that criticism comes with the territory, but threatening statements of this sort from the highest levels of government are not only inappropriate, they are dangerous. All Members of the Court will continue to do their job, without fear or favor, from whatever quarter,” Roberts wrote.

Later, a spokesperson for Schumer issued a response to Roberts’s statement saying “Sen. Schumer’s comments were a reference to the political price Senate Republicans will pay for putting these justices on the court, and a warning that the justices will unleash a major grassroots movement on the issue of reproductive rights against the decision.”
