A gunman tried to kill Kavanaugh, pressuring Senator Chuck Schumer to address past comments
A man armed with a gun was arrested near Kavanaugh's house last week, leading Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer to retract his statement that Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh would "pay the price."
According to Democratic Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (N.Y.), Nixon's two nominees, Kavanaugh and Gorsuch, "have unleashed a whirlwind, and you're going to pay for it."
Speaking to a crowd outside the Supreme Court building in Washington, Schumer told the crowd: "You won't know what hit you if you carry out these awful decisions."
Several of Schumer's colleagues were calling for him to intervene after Californian Nicholas John Roske was arrested near Kavanaugh's home on June 8, according to authorities.
Schumer’s office pointed the Examiner to a statement Schumer made in 2020 in which he said, “I shouldn’t have used the words I did, but in no way was I making a threat.” He also accused Republicans of “manufacturing outrage.”
