GOP senator pushes to censure Chuck Schumer for threatening Supreme Court justices

Sen. Josh Hawley is introducing legislation to censure Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer for saying that two Supreme Court justices “will pay the price” for voting against the wishes of abortion advocates.

Hawley, a Republican from Missouri, announced on Twitter Wednesday that he plans to introduce a motion to censure the New York Democrat for threatening Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh. Hawley’s announcement follows a torrent of criticism toward Schumer for his comments, including from Chief Justice John Roberts.

“I would call on Schumer to apologize, but we all know he has no shame. So tomorrow I will introduce a motion to censure Schumer for his pathetic attempt at intimidation of #SupremeCourt,”
Hawley wrote.

Abortion advocates rallied outside the Supreme Court on Wednesday as it prepared to hear opening arguments in June Medical Services v. Russo. The case focuses on a Louisiana law that critics say unconstitutionally limits access to abortion by placing onerous regulations on the operation’s providers.
