Schumer’s threat that Kavanaugh ‘will pay the price’ comes back in worst way after arrest of murder attempt against justice

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer’s words against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh about abortion have returned in a painful way following the arrest of a man in an attempted murder against the justice.

Some are now calling for Schumer’s impeachment for inciting violence against Kavanaugh.

The speech

“Now, we stand here today because behind me, inside the walls of this court, the Supreme Court is hearing arguments, as you know, for the first major abortion right cases since [Justice] Kavanaugh and [Justice] Gorsuch came to the bench. We know what’s at stake,” Schumer said in 2020.

“Over the last three years, women’s reproductive rights have come under attack in a way we haven’t seen in modern history. From Louisiana, to Missouri, to Texas, Republican legislatures are waging a war on women, all women, and they’re taking away fundamental rights.

“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,” he added.

The outcome

The arrest of a man this week in the attempted murder of Kavanaugh shows the results of what Schumer has encouraged.

“Speaker Pelosi, I implore you: please pass my SCOTUS Security bill,” Texas Republican Sen. John Cornyn tweeted on Thursday.

“Every day they don’t the threat to the Justices grows, the potential for tragedy becomes more likely & House Democrats achieve a new apex of political dysfunction,” he added.

The contrast between Democrats failing to support security for justices while calling for action against them is a growing concern.

The threats against our nation’s leaders are real, and it doesn’t require added threats from Democrats to make it worse.
