President Trump claimed Wednesday that Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. was not protected by congressional “immunity” when he made threatening comments toward Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh at a pro-abortion rally outside the court, suggesting that Schumer was in line for some kind of punishment.

Trump told Fox News that he had wanted to sue Schiff, but was told the Democratic lawmaker was immune from any litigation. “Schumer did it outside on the streets in front of a rough crowd,” Trump noted. “It was a disgrace to the Supreme Court and to the U.S. Senate.”

“As far as Schumer is concerned, it was a terrible thing he said. I was amazed by it and if that were a Republican you would see really bad things happening,” the president went on. “It is very unequal justice, and it is a disgrace that he was able to say something like that.”

“He wasn’t shielded by the halls of Congress like Schiff was when he lied about my phone call,” the president continued.

Schumer made the comment earlier Wednesday during a rally hosted by the Center for Reproductive Rights. At the time, the justices were hearing a case challenging to a Louisiana law requiring doctors performing abortions to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital.

“I want to tell you, Gorsuch. I want to tell you, Kavanaugh. You have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price!” Schumer warned. “You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”

Later in the evening, Chief Justice of the United States John Roberts Jr. issued a rare and stern rebuke of the 69-year-old Democratic leader.

“Justices know that criticism comes with the territory, but threatening statements of this sort from the highest levels of government are not only inappropriate, they are dangerous. All Members of the Court will continue to do their job, without fear or favor, from whatever quarter,” Roberts said in a statement obtained by Fox News.

    He needs to be removed from the Senate. This is getting out of hand. He needs to be made an example of. When our most senior representatives start calling for violence against the judiciary; it’s only a matter of time before it happens. The Senate needs to come down HARD on Schumer. Scalise is lucky to be alive after congressional personnel called for making all Republicans unwanted anywhere, at anytime. He was subsequently shot several times. Should this stand, we will soon have anarchy in no time….or is that the objective?

    I really believe that ALL of the Democrats are Socialist or worse. Most of them, unlike Bernie, just want to ease it in on us (think frog in the pot) so we hold still for it. Schumer is an obnoxious pr*ck and if any of the rest of us had dared say what he said we would already be in jail with bail so high we would never get out. I hope his wahoo rots off…but I would give that up if there was just equal justice. So YES he should be run out on a rail!
