FLASHBACK: Schumer Blasts President Trump for ‘Attacking a Judge,’ Asks Chief Justice to ‘Defend Judiciary’

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.06.20

Sen. Chuck Schumer faced a growing backlash from his Congressional colleagues this week after directly threatening two US Supreme Court Justices; ignoring comments from just weeks ago where he blasted Donald Trump for “attacking a judge.”

“With President Trump publicly attacking a judge: Now would be the time for Chief Justice Roberts to speak up. Now would be the time for the Chief Justice to directly and specifically defend the independence of the federal judiciary. I hope he will see fit to, and do it today,” said Schumer on February 13th.

Schumer directly threatened two Justices earlier this week, saying “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!”

“This morning, Senator Schumer spoke at a rally in front of the Supreme Court while a case was being argued inside,” Roberts said in a written statement Wednesday. “Senator Schumer referred to two Members of the Court by name and said he wanted to tell them that ‘You have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price. You will not know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.'”
