His actions are inexcusable!
In a recent interview with Fox News, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) opened fire on Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) for his senseless attack on Supreme Court Associate Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.
Cruz demanded Schumer apologize for this unacceptable comments.
According to Breitbart, “He wasn’t talking to Senate Republicans, he was talking to those two justices,” Cruz said. “He was threatening them quite directly. You — you will reap the whirlwind, you will pay the price. That is an unambiguous threat. Now, whether it’s a threat of — of political retribution, or something even worse, that’s not clear. But whatever it is, it’s judicial intimidation. It’s not right. It is unacceptable. And I think Chuck Schumer should apologize.”
“His spokesperson ought to apologize to lying that — for lying to people too,” he then said. “And I’ll tell you, I think the Senate should seriously consider taking disciplinary steps when you have the leader of one of the two parties going to the steps of the Supreme Court, threatening and trying to intimidate Supreme Court justices, that undermines the rule of law, it undermines the judiciary, and it’s just flat out wrong.”
