Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) threatened two conservative Supreme Court justices as he spoke at a pro-choice rally in front of the Supreme Court Wednesday.
Schumer delivered his unhinged threat as the Court heard a Louisiana case on restricting abortion, June Medical Services v. Russo, described by ScotusBlog, “Whether the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit’s decision upholding Louisiana’s law requiring physicians who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at a local hospital conflicts with the Supreme Court’s binding precedent in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt.”
Schumer turned and pointed at the Supreme Court building behind him and menacingly screamed as he shook his fist:
“I want to tell you Gorsuch! And 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…”
Twitter exploded with shock at such an unprecedented threat from such a high official in Washington.

It sounds like the @SecretService needs to be involved.— StickSez (@SezStick) March 4, 2020
The FBI ought to do something about this. Who protects the Supreme Court? Capital Police? Someone has a duty to act against threats like this. The media is owned by leftist extremists, they are useless.— d_s_umbra_314159265359 (@d_s_umbra_31415) March 4, 2020
One Tweeter recalled a previous threat Schumer made against Trump regarding the “intelligence community” — one which actually predicted its entire coup attempt against the new president:

Will the Senate censure Schumer for his outrageous comments? We are still waiting for a statement from Leader Mitch McConnell. Stay tuned.
