Here is Laurie Higgins:
On Wednesday, Chief Justice John Roberts issued a sharp public admonition to U.S. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer following this irresponsible threat expressed by the always divisive Schumer at a pro-feticide rally on the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court where the Justices were hearing a case on abortion:
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.
In response Roberts chastised Schumer through a rare public statement:
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.
In an embarrassing effort to clean up the yucky mess Schumer left on the U.S. Supreme Court steps, Schumer’s lackey Justin Goodman released an incredible—as in not credible—statement claiming that Schumer’s threat was directed—not at the two Justices Schumer specifically named—but at the Republican Party:
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.
