Senator Chuck Schumer Owes a Real Apology to Gorsuch and Kavanaugh
United States Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer directly threatened Supreme Court Associate Justices Neill Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh in an unprecedented manner.
Schumer was perched directly in front of The Supreme Court and yelled and pointed towards them while they were inside doing their job.
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.
Schumer’s unprecedented actions were so outrageous and unacceptable that SCOTUS Chief Justice immediately rebuked Schumer as follows:
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.
The United States Senate is considering a formal censure of Schumer. This is the very minimum that should take place.
Remember how the Democrats went ballistic and accused President Donald Trump of obstructing a co-equal branch of the federal government. It was fake news all the way.
Here, Schumer brazenly threatened a co-equal branch with grave consequences if they didn’t vote how he wanted them to.
President Trump said that Schumer “must pay a severe price” for threatening Gorsuch and Kavanaugh.
Schumer was advocating for the reversal of a Louisiana law that requires doctors who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at a local hospital.
Schumer’s outrageous behavior has been roundly criticized.
Schumer felt the heat and took to the well of The United States Senate to defend himself earlier today.
He should have simply offered an unambiguous, unconditional apology. Instead, Schumer played verbal gymnastics and tried to say that he didn’t say what he said.
He blamed his Brooklyn, New York, zip code for his poor choice of words.
It doesn’t count as an apology when you refuse to acknowledge what you did.
Let’s see if the media will hold Schumer accountable for his unacceptable public conduct.
