Chuck Schumer’s chickens have come home to roost, folks.
According to reports, Schumer has been hit with multiple ethics complaints about his unhinged threats against Supreme Court justices Kavanaugh and Gorsuch.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., is the subject of several ethics complaints following his controversial remarks directed toward Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.
In the days following Schumer’s statements at an abortion rights rally outside the court building – comments some described as a threat – complaints were sent to the Senate Ethics Committee and the New York bar’s Grievance Committee, alleging that the Democratic leader’s remarks violated ethics rules.
“At a minimum, Attorney/Senator Schumer’s statements appear to be improper conduct that reflects upon his character and fitness to practice law in New York,” attorney Joseph Gioconda wrote in a letter sent Monday to New York’s Grievance Committee for the Second Judicial District, where Schumer is admitted.

This comes as no surprise since his comments were condemned by not only the GOP but some big Democrats like Pelosi did as well.
One of the only things she’s done correctly in decades.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called it “unfortunate” that Democratic New York Sen. Chuck Schumer issued a warning to Supreme Court Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch.
“I believe he also said on the floor today that his words were not appropriate, and I support him in that,” the California Democrat told reporters on Thursday. “It’s unfortunate because, as you see, I think the Republicans say, ‘It’s okay if the president does it, but it’s not okay if other people do it.’ It wasn’t right for anybody to do it, and Chuck recognized those words.” [Washington Examiner]
Schumer’s threats against two Supreme Court justices were honestly so inappropriate that he should really be facing more than an ethics complaint.
Really, he should be censured for this crazed behavior.
