House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy weighed-in Thursday on Chuck Schumer’s outrageous remarks aimed at the US Supreme Court; suggesting Democrats may want to “change their leadership” over his “inappropriate” threats.
I don’t think we should take this lightly… You have the leader of the Democrats in the Senate standing over the Supreme Court before they’re going to hear a case, threatening two new judges. Threatening them, being cheered by it, we’re so much better than that,” said McCarthy.

“It is a new low. It’s inappropriate. It goes beyond just an apology. Is that what he really meant? To take it to that level, it almost brings a threat to members of the Supreme Court. I don’t know if Democrats want to change their leadership over it,” he added.

“I want to tell you, Gorsuch, I want to tell you, Kavanaugh, you have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price,” Schumer said.
“For Justice Roberts to follow the right wing’s deliberate misinterpretation of what Sen. Schumer said, while remaining silent when President Trump attacked Justices Sotomayor and Ginsburg last week, shows Justice Roberts does not just call balls and strikes,” said Schumer spokesman Justin Goodman.
