Senator Hawley to File Motion to Censure Chuck Schumer for Threatening Supreme Court Justices

Yesterday we reported that U.S. Senator and Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) went off the deep end so to speak, with implied threats against Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh. Schumer “warned” them that they have “released the whirlwind and you will pay the price” at a pro-abortion speech.

Immediately Steve Scalise and many others called out Schumer for the outrageous idea he had to “threaten” the justices. Justice Roberts issued an official rebuke of Schumer’s actions, a rare thing to do for a sitting Supreme Court member.

Now Schumer is in hot water in the senate, and unlike the House, the Republicans hold the power. That means Schumer could actually be in real trouble. It was announced by Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) that he would be filing a motion to censure minority leader Schumer.

Hawley stated in one tweet: “Now @chuckschumer is threatening Supreme Court Justices personally, to the point of implying their physical safety is endangered. Disgusting, shameful, and frankly, WEAK”. His quote was a caption of the rebuke from Chief Justice Roberts. Hawley then calls on Schumer to apologize, but says he “has no shame”. He then goes on: “So tomorrow I will introduce a motion to censure Schumer for his pathetic attempt at intimidation of #SupremeCourt“. See the tweet string below:

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Fox News moments ago said, “the Senate should consider disciplinary steps against Schumer” with a censure. More on this story to unfold as it happens in real-time.
