Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has done it now.
The once revered Senator just showed the nation his true colors.
And Chuck Schumer fell apart when he had to answer for one violent threat.
Chuck Schumer has made the greatest mistake of his life.
While at a pro-abortion rally, he openly called for violence against the two Trump-appointed pro-life Supreme Court Judges, Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch.
His words enticed the crowd, but caught the attention of the nation.
Schumer declared at a Center for Reproductive Rights rally last Wednesday that the two conservative judges will “pay the price” if they vote against pro-choice advocates in a case regarding a Louisiana abortion law.
“Over the last three years, women’s reproductive rights have come under attack in a way we haven’t seen in modern history. From Louisiana, to Missouri, to Texas, Republican legislatures are waging a war on women, all women, and they’re taking away fundamental rights,” he warned. “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.”
After blowback from the right, Schumer tried to walk back the words he said, but did not apologize for their meaning.
Following this outrageous call for violence, the National Legal Policy Center filed complaints against Schumer with both the Senate Ethics Committee and New York Bar.
“It strains credulity to believe that, regardless of his Brooklyn pedigree, Sen. Schumer, who is a Harvard-educated lawyer, Senator minority leader, and vocal opponent of both Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh, did not intend to choose the exact words he spoke as he turned and pointed to the Supreme Court behind him to further emphasize his point,” the NLPC’s complaint reads. “In short, his non-apology is a lame excuse for inexcusable conduct.”
Several other foundations, including the Landmark Legal Foundation, also submitted complaints to the upper chamber’s ethics panel this week.
“The Senate must immediately reprimand, if not censure, Sen. Schumer for his outrageous and dangerous attack on Supreme Court Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh,” said the complaint, alleging that the lawmaker’s comments could amount to “improper conduct which may reflect upon the Senate.”
In a separate complaint, attorney Joseph Gioconda wrote to New York’s Grievance Committee for the Second Judicial District: “At a minimum, Attorney/Senator Schumer’s statements appear to be improper conduct that reflects upon his character and fitness to practice law in New York.”
Schumer even received a remark from Supreme Court Justice John Roberts, which is rare. Roberts called his threat both “inappropriate” and “dangerous.”
“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,” he said.
Schumer will not be allowed to get away with this threat.
He will face justice for inciting violence towards the peaceful judges of this country.
