Schumer's 'uniquely ugly' moment to appear in 2020 campaigns - WND
Democratic Senate leader threatened Supreme Court justices
The threats by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. to two Supreme Court justices will get plenty of air time in the coming months.
But it's going to be a lot more familiar in coming weeks and months.
Washington Examiner columnist Paul Bedard wrote Friday†that Schumer will become the "poster boy" for many 2020 campaigns.
"Get ready to see more of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumerís threatening rant against Supreme Court Associate Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh on the 2020 campaign trail," he reported.
At a pro-abortion rally in front of the U.S. Supreme Court while it was hearing a major abortion case, he threatened Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.
"I want to tell you, Gorsuch! I want to tell you, Kavanaugh! You have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price! You wonít know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions," he said March 4.
Several conservative groups told Bedard they are planning to use the images and angry words of Schumer in key battleground states, warning that if Trump loses or the Democrats win the Senate, such attacks on conservative judges will become the norm.
Carrie Severino of the Judicial Crisis Network called Schumer's threats a "uniquely ugly moment."
"Voters should see the kind of extreme tactics that are condoned by the Democrats," she told Bedard.
He noted Democrats have been muted in their reaction, but others have not.
Jenny Beth Martin of the Tea Party Patriots said, "Our supporters are motivated by the Supreme Court more than anything else."
And, Bedard pointed out, Mallory Quigley of the Susan B. Anthony List, said, "Is this unhinged person the one who voters want to lead the United States Senate? The Susan B. Anthony List and Women Speak Out PAC field team are working tirelessly to ensure voters in battleground states have all this information in hand before they go to the polls in November."
The columnist said the National Republican Senatorial Committee also is "teeing Schumer up."
Some of the reaction to Schumer's threats:
Schumer has tried to walk back his comments, saying he didn't mean them as a threat. But he didn't apologize or withdraw them.
