Mitch McConnell Slams Chuck Schumer On Senate Floor For Threats To Supreme Court Judges (VIDEO)

Chuck Schumer’s threats to the conservative justices on the Supreme Court this week were shocking.

He might be in some real trouble for it, too.

Republican leader Mitch McConnell took Schumer to the woodshed for his comments on Thursday.

McConnell slams Schumer on Senate floor for controversial remarks directed at Supreme Court justices

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., called out Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., on the Senate floor Thursday morning for his controversial warning a day earlier that Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh would “pay the price” for decisions in abortion cases.

“There is nothing to call this except a threat,” McConnell said.

Schumer made the statement during an abortions rights rally hosted by the Center for Reproductive Rights as the court was hearing arguments in a case over an abortion-related Louisiana law.

“I want to tell you, Gorsuch. I want to tell you, Kavanaugh. You have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price!” Schumer warned. “You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”…

Schumer spokesman Justin Goodman previously insisted that Schumer was addressing Republican lawmakers when he said a “price” would be paid — even though Schumer had explicitly named Kavanaugh and Gorsuch.

McConnell did not buy that, saying that Schumer was trying to “gaslight the entire country” by claiming he was not addressing the justices.

“But if he cannot even admit to saying what he said, we certainly cannot know what he meant,” McConnell said. “At the very best his comments were astonishingly reckless and extremely irresponsible.”

Once again, McConnell is the adult in the room.
