Senator Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) has once again proven when Dems don’t get their way, they will resort to threats and violence.
During an event for the baby-killing factory Planned Parenthood, Schumer blatantly threatened two sitting Supreme Court Justices, and now he is paying the price for it.

You Can’t Say That
I have no problem with anyone disagreeing with a Supreme Court Justice.
We do it all the time here, however, we have never threatened them.
Schumer, as an elected representative, should know that this a line you simply do not cross, but he did.
The now-disgraced New York Senator stated, “I want to tell you Gorsuch, I want to tell you Kavanaugh, you have unleashed a whirlwind, and you will pay the price.
“You don’t know what will hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”
How serious of a threat is this?
Well, let me remind you of something Schumer said in 2017 when Donald Trump was upset about the briefings on Russian cyber-hacking threats were delayed.
Schumer then stated, “Let me tell you: You take on the intelligence community — they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you.”
I think it is fair to say that the intelligence community had taken more than a few shots at Trump since then.
Immediately Called Out
Chief Justice Roberts usually stays out of politics, but Schumer’s comments immediately drew his ire.
Roberts stated, “This morning, Senator Schumer spoke at a rally in front of the Supreme Court while a case was being argued inside. Senator Schumer referred to two Members of the Court by name and said he wanted to tell them that ‘You have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price. You will not know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.'”
“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.”
Schumer’s camp again went on the attack, questioning the integrity of Justice Roberts, issuing the following statement:
“Women’s health care rights are at stake and Americans from every corner of the country are in anguish about what the court might do to them.
“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.
“For Justice Roberts to follow the right wing’s deliberate misinterpretation of what Sen. Schumer said, while remaining silent when President Trump attacked Justices [Sonia] Sotomayor and [Ruth Bader] Ginsberg last week, shows Justice Roberts does not just call balls and strikes.”
The problem, though, is Schumer clearly aimed his comments at both Gorsuch and Kavanaugh, NOT Republicans, which is very clear when you hear his words.
Regarding what Trump said, we are talking apples and oranges.
Both Ginsburg and Sotomayor made anti-Trump comments and Trump merely stated they should recuse themselves from the bench on any case related to him… he surely did not send a threat the likes of what Schumer said.
It is all just lies, more lies, as though Schumer thinks he can tell us he said something different than we heard and we will believe him.
