Schumer Gets More Rebukes After Attacking Supreme Court Justices

Sometimes letting one’s mouth run just gets the person into big trouble. Take Senator Chuck Schumer for instance. On Wednesday, Chuckie stood in front of the Supreme Court building where a case was being argued regarding a Louisiana abortion law. The law states that abortion-providing doctors must have to admit privileges at a hospital.

For some reason, the abortion industry objects to this, so the case made it all the way to the Supreme Court where two of the justices who are President Donald Trump’s picks for the high court are sure to side with the state on the matter.

And Senator Schumer made a statement that did not go over very well with other people in the swamp.

“I want to tell you, Gorsuch. I want to tell you, Kavanaugh. You have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price!” Schumer warned. “You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”

This didn’t go over too well with Gorsuch and Kavanaugh’s boss. Chief Justice John Roberts fired off a statement rebuking Schumer, an extremely rare move from the one branch of government which is supposed to be apolitical.

That prompted a response from a Schumer staffer.

This back and forth has now been followed up with two of Schumer’s fellow senators speaking out against his perceived threat to two Supreme Court justices.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., will call out Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., on the Senate floor Thursday morning for his controversial warning a day earlier that Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh would “pay the price” for decisions in abortion cases, Fox News has learned….

McConnell is not the only senator who plans on addressing the statement as Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., said he would introduce a resolution to censure the minority leader.

“I would call on Schumer to apologize, but we all know he has no shame,” Hawley wrote Wednesday. “So tomorrow I will introduce a motion to censure Schumer for his pathetic attempt at intimidation of #SupremeCourt.”

Schumer’s words were also met with a rare rebuke from Chief Justice John Roberts, as well as the American Bar Association and President Trump.

“It was a disgrace to the Supreme Court and to the U.S. Senate,” Trump said in an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity.

What motivated Schumer to make such a statement is unclear, but now that he has said what he did, the man is due for some serious censure.
