Senator Chuck Schumer’s comments outside the Supreme Court building were reprehensible, dangerous, and beneath the dignity of Senate Minority Leader as well as Mr. Schumer himself. As bad as they were, though, it is understandable how Schumer, who rarely has an unscripted public moment, made those comments infinitely worse in his mealy-mouth explanation on the Senate floor. His inability to simply say, “I was wrong> I should not have said that. No one should ever say that. there is never a valid reason to threaten any Supreme Court Justice.”
Instead, what we got was some incomprehensible nonsense about being from Brooklyn. I was born in raised in Brooklyn, mostly in Flatbush. If I were to threaten Justice Ginsberg in the same way you threatened Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh, I would be facing what Chuck should be facing. Not censure, but jail.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., may still face consequences from his colleagues after facing criticism from conservatives and liberals alike for remarks he directed towards Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh at an abortion rights rally last week that some have considered threatening. Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., has continued to call for Schumer to be censured after introducing a resolution in the Senate to do just that. And dozens of well-known conservative leaders signed a letter Monday adding their voices to the calls. GOP SENATORS CALL FOR CENSURING SCHUMER OVER SUPREME COURT COMMENTS “Of course Schumer’s attacks were ‘inappropriate’ and ‘wrong’! He should be CENSURED,” Hawley tweeted Friday, in response to a video of CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin, who stated that Schumer’s remarks sounded “like a physical threat.”Schumer’s Supreme Court saga not over, as GOP presses forward on historic censure | Fox News
