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:

  • The Coalition of African American Pastors has launched a petion†asking Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to censure Schumer. "We, the undersigned, appeal to you and the Senate as a whole to officially censure fellow Senator Charles Schumer for his threats to Supreme Court Justices Kavanaugh and Gorsuch. Those remarks, made during a rally at the Supreme Court on a pending case, were clearly intended to influence the decision on that case. Despite Sen. Schumerís later excuses, the comments were threatening in nature and were made with the intent of stirring up animus (and possibly violence) against the justices," the petition states.
  • WND reported Schumer is facing ethics complaints filed with the Senate Ethics Committee and the New York bar's Grievance Committee. "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," wrote Joseph Gioconda, a lawyer who sent a note to the grievance committee. The nonprofit National Legal Policy Center also filed complaints.
  • Harvard Law School professor Laurence Tribe called Schumer's statements "inexcusable," and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said it was nothing "except a threat."
  • Among the leaders who have called for censure are former South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint, Republican Attorney General's Association Chairman Jeff Landry, former Ronald Reagan campaign adviser Ed Rollins and Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk.
  • Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., has proposed a Senate resolution to censure Schumer.
  • In a rare public statement, Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts rebuked Schumer for his "dangerous" threats.
  • A number of states' attorneys general have condemned Schumer's statements.

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.


Democrats wouldn't buy a clue if it was government subsidized.
