Chuck Schumer is in hot water.
The New York Democrat crossed an unthinkable line.
Chuck Schumer instantly regretted this one giant mistake that could land him behind bars.
This week, Chuck Schumer caused a national uproar when he threatened Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh with mob violence if they voted to uphold a pro-Life law in a highly charged case before the Supreme Court.
Schumer ranted that “they will pay a price” and promised that Gorsuch and Kavanaugh would “reap a whirlwhind” if they stood up for the unborn.
Former U.S. Attorney Guy Lewis appeared on Fox News’ “Outnumbered Overtime” program to discuss Schumer’s remarks.
Lewis stated that what Schumer said could constitute a criminal threat against the Justices and that he put someone in jail for a similar offense.
“Look, the ABA [American Bar Association] is no friend of the Republican Party. I got to tell you, and Schumer is kind of backtracking, we’ve heard today. I think it’s a day late and a dollar short. Listen, as a young prosecutor down here in Miami, I actually prosecuted, put somebody in jail for about three years, if I recall correctly, under a similar circumstance where they had threatened a federal judge that had a case pending before her,” Lewis told host Harris Faulkner.
Schumer offered a weak apology claiming his harsh words were just how people from Brooklyn talk and that he never meant his words to come across as a threat.
Lewis was not buying this excuse.
“Listen, I don’t think this is bad judgment. This may very well be criminal,” Lewis added.
The double standard was obvious.
When Donald Trump called out liberal judges for political bias the fake news media and Democrats claim Trump’s words are one step removed from turning American into 1930s Germany.
But when Chuck Schumer commits what many believe is a criminal act the so-called “mainstream” media largely sits silent.
