Schumer Just Threatened Supreme Court Justices Kavanaugh and Gorsuch ‘You will pay the price’
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer attended a Planned Parenthood rally Wednesday and openly threatened Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, just as the Supreme Court is hearing arguments about a law in Louisiana requiring abortion doctors to have admitting privileges to the state’s local hospitals.
“I want to tell you Gorsuch, I want to tell you Kavanaugh, you have unleashed a whirlwind, and you will pay the price,” said Schumer. “You don’t know what will hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”
Rep. Mark Meadows, R-NC, questioned his threat on Twitter saying “Did Senate Democrat leader Schumer just threaten two conservative justices? Where is the media?”
Should we should take Schumer’s warning seriously? Maybe, remember it was Schumer who said in early 2017, that the intelligence community would target President Donald Trump when the he questioned why his briefing on Russia’s cyberattacks were delayed.
“Let me tell you: You take on the intelligence community — they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you,” said Schumer to MSNBC host Rachel Maddow.
Just look at what happened to Trump over the past three years and ask yourself this one question: Could the Democrats use similar tactics to make life for our Supreme Court Justices just as difficult?
