Schumer threatens Supreme Court Justices Kavanaugh, Gorsuch over potential abortion doctor ruling: ‘You’ll pay the price’

Schumer demonstrates again he is no fan of federalism

By Tank Murdoch

(TNS) So much for an ‘independent judiciary.’



Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, whose party only controls one-half of one branch of government, felt the need to threaten constitutionalist justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh — both nominated to the bench by his New York nemesis President Donald Trump — they’ll “pay the price” if they take a legal position he doesn’t like in a case addressing the credentialing of doctors who perform abortions.



“I want to tell you, Gorsuch. I want to tell you, Kavanaugh. You have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price,” Schumer told a cheering crowd of abortion advocates in front of the Supreme Court.

We’re not quite sure how that works, given that Supreme Court justices have lifetime tenure. But perhaps Schumer knows something about the chances either of these two could be impeached, the only other constitutional remedy, that we don’t know.

“You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions,” he added.

On Wednesday the high court heard the case, June Medical Services v. Russo, which considers the constitutionality of a 2014 law passed in Louisiana that requires physicians who do abortions to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of their clinic. Many abortionists do not have those credentials.

Backers of the law say it’s not a matter of halting abortions but rather ensuring that women who may suffer a medical problem during the procedure can be adequately cared for by the same doctor who performed the procedure.

Critics argue that the law would shutter all but one abortion clinic in the state.

In fact, the Unsafe Abortion Protection Act was actually introduced by a Democratic state senator, Katrina Jackson, who told National Review that her bill is just “a standard health law” that makes “very common sense.”

The Unsafe Abortion Protection Act was introduced by Democratic state senator Katrina Jackson, who told National Review she considers her bill “a health standard law” that is “very common sense.”

“Basically, Louisiana, unknowingly to us, had a lower standard of care for women who elected to have abortions in some places,” Jackson said. “And so what we did was make sure that that standard of health care that we established in Louisiana for years also applied to abortion.”

The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans has already ruled in favor of the law in September. Now, justices will consider whether to side with the appeals court or whether the state law conflicts “with Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt, the 2016 Supreme Court precedent ruling that Texas cannot restrict abortion in a way that creates an undue burden for women seeking abortions,” National Review noted.



It’ll be the first abortion litmus test, if you will, for Gorsuch and Kavanaugh. And recall that Democrats went nearly insane in an attempt to keep Kavanaugh off the bench because they fear he will team with Gorsuch and, perhaps at some point, a third Trump-nominated justice, to eventually return the question of whether to allow abortions back to the states, where it originated before the high court’s controversial 1973 decision legalizing it everywhere.

Schumer, as usual, is simply demonstrating he’s no fan of that founding constitutional principle of federalism.

First Satan is on video talking to his empty seat in the Senate. Now he is publicly threatening Supreme Court Justices. I wonder what his ally John Roberts thinks about the threats

Chuck is going to find himself deep in his own doo doo if the GOP wakes up. His improper interference in a judicial proceeding is not only unethical, it might be illegal. Senate Judiciary Committee needs to get on this ASAP.

Pretty sure threatening Supreme Court judges is illegal along with attempting to subvert them.

Time for Schumer to step down. He is a failed lawyer who has never practiced law. He is a failed politician. An honorable senator would take the chastisement of the Supreme Court Justice and button his mouth. He is a loose cannon and more dangerous than Bernie Sanders, who at least, has some scruples and brainpower left. Schumer is an extinct breed bent on taking down America.

Clearly a threat. Arrest him, try him, and McConnell should have a censure vote.

Unhinged, Schumer must be feeling proverbial walls of the NXIVM sex cult walls falling in on him – why were his personal details and banking information left on a subpoenaed computer server ? – perhaps an indictment would explain – try lying out of this one, Chucky

A perfect use of NSA intercepts would be to investigate the hell out of Schumer and then prosecute the hell out of him.

For God’s sake Republicans, arrest this guy and give him the same treatment
a “normal American” would get for the same thing. i.e. Going broke defending himself, then jail for a long time. The two tier justice system is getting worn out.

This is all the more reason to want the Republicans to take over the House and extend their Senate share to be able to over-ride the filibusters.

There can be few things worse in a civilized, law abiding nation, than a United States Senator openly, and for all to see and hear, threatening the Supreme Court or its Justices. This is what Chuck Schumer just did. He must pay a severe price for this!

That’s what President Trump says, you dirty khazar-sodomite mamzer buttclown!

We all know that Schumer is probably the most pompous know it all in Congress, but this is beyond acceptable. He should be arrested and taken before a judge and jury for obvious threats against those two SC judges. He can blather all he likes in his denials that he was making threats, but he is convicted by his own words. Will New Yorkers ever learn that the rest of the country can’t stand his kind of smart ass bullying? At the ver least he should be publicly censured by the Senate. He needs to be put in his place,… Read more »

The evil hatred Schummer and the abortionists are displaying here is because Louisiana wants to require abortionists to have nearby hospital privlages. Imagine the evil Schumer and the abortionists will unleash if we try to make the killing of innocent unborn children illegal. How sad.

What has happened to the Democrat Party?

Truly vile people now claim to be Democrats-Talib, Omar, Pelosi, AOC, Nadler, Schumer, Watters, Schiff to name just a few.

They spend their time and our money constantly criticizing Americans, our Constitution and Greedy Capitalists while they get rich for doing nothing but bullsjht
