WATCH: Sen. Schumer warns conservative Supreme Court justices

At a pro-choice rally, the Democrats’ leader in the Senate, Chuck Schumer (D-Calif.) issued a direct warning to Supreme Court justices Neil Gorsuch and Bret Kavanaugh.

Schumer told the two Trump-nominated justices that they will “pay the price” if they make court rulings on abortion that are contrary to Schumer’s interests.

The threat was reminiscent of Schumer’s threat to President Trump in January 2017 that the intelligence community had “six ways from Sunday” to get back at Trump. That was followed by improper FBI wiretaps of a Trump campaign associate, among other actions.

After the video of Schumer threatening the Justices was circulated on social media, a Schumer spokesman reportedly said that “paying the price” referred to the “political price” Republicans will pay for putting Gorsuch and Kavanaugh on the court. However, Schumer’s speech clearly referred to what would supposedly happen to Gorsuch and Kavanaugh directly, not the Republicans who supported them.

    Sure sounds to me like a threat. I wonder if the justice department will investigate. They would if it was a Republican saying something like this about Schumer and Nancy while standing on the steps of the capital.

  2. Schumer is trying to show he has a pair; He just lacks the brain power to use them properly. Mr. Schumer should just go fishing.

  3. The Senator should not be allowed to vote on any legislation involving this issue. He should be censured and perhaps lose his seat.

    It is sad to see this issue so polarized. It is really complicated. Thoughtful discussion and debate are not possible given the level of vitriol that is demonstrated here with Schumer’s actions.

    We are in a broken place on this and so many important things.

    (paying the price)…That is exactly what the lliberal progressives/tyrannical left want, to see… if they can create an aggressive response, from the “alt right”whereby thier supposed minions will predominate in an emergency situation.
