It’s not everyday that you see the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court go after the Democrat leader in the United States Senate. Today is that day.
Earlier today Senator Chuck Schumer threatened Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh at a pro abortion rally in the capital. You can read about it here.
“This morning, Senator Schumer spoke at a rally in front of the Supreme Court while a case was being argued inside,” Roberts said in an extraordinary written statement. “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.'”
The Chief Justice continued..
“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.”
As they should. It’s always amazing that it’s the Democrats who are always the ones doing what they attack others for doing. Strange how that works, isn’t it?
