  • Did Justice Kavanaugh lie to Senator Susan Collins about overturning Roe?

    Short answer: Of course not. Neither Kavanaugh nor any other justice would pledge privately to rule a particular way in a future case. To do so would be unethical.…although Kavanaugh did pledge *publicly* to rule a particular way in certain future cases in yesterday’s Dobbs concurrence.Longer answer: If this NYT story is accurate, he strongly implied to Collins that he wouldn’t dump Roe. “Lie” is too strong a word, but you can understand why she feels misled.Jazz has a post coming up about the political predicament in which Collins now finds herself. She’s one of two pro-choice Republicans left in...

    Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) on Friday said conservative Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch misled her about their views on the importance of Supreme Court precedent during their confirmation proceedings in 2017 and 2018. Collins, who voted to confirm then-President Trump’s first two conservative nominees to the court despite her support for abortion rights, has said she believed those justices would hold up important precedents such as Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 decision that established a constitutional right to abortion. A court majority that included Kavanaugh and Gorsuch struck down that right on Friday. “This decision is inconsistent with...
  • Joe Manchin and Susan Collins accuse Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch of misleading them about Roe v. Wade when the senators voted to confirm them

    U.S. Senators Joe Manchin and Susan Collins slammed Supreme Court Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch for their votes in overturning Roe V. Wade on Friday. The senators had voted to confirm the Donald Trump appointed justices despite fears that they would overtrun the landmark abortion ruling, with the senators saying at the time that they trusted Kavanaugh and Gorsuch to uphold the law. Now Collins, a Republican, and Manchin, a Democrat, are accusing the justices of misleading them as they criticized the court's 5-4 ruling to end women's federal right to an abortion.
  • Huffy Pelosi insists SCOTUS not in danger after Brett Kavanaugh assassination attempt

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi got in a huff with a reporter while insisting Thursday that Supreme Court justices have adequate protection — even after a serious bid to assassinate Justice Brett Kavanaugh at his Maryland home was foiled just a day earlier. As Pelosi left her weekly press conference, she stopped to address a reporter who shouted: “You said the justices are protected, but there was an attempt on Justice Kavanaugh’s life.” “And he’s protected,” Pelosi snapped back. “He’s protected. The justices are protected.” Congressional Republicans have urged the House to approve a Senate-passed bill that would give the nation’s...

    Nicholas Roske, 26, is from Simi Valley, California. A LinkedIn page in the name of Nicholas Roske of Simi Valley says that he worked as an office manager at a pest control company. A criminal complaint accuses Roske of “attempts to kidnap or murder, or threatens to assault, kidnap or murder a United States Judge, to wit: a current Justice of the United States Supreme Court.” It outlines a number of items he’s accused of bringing with him to Kavanaugh’s neighborhood, including duct tape, zip ties, and a pistol. The suspect also goes by the names Nicholas Roske and Nick...
  • Chief Justice Roberts Is Right: An Unelected Official Should Not Cast Tie-Breaking Votes

    The Federalist ^ | February 1, 2020 | Erielle Davidson
    Roberts’ unwillingness to interfere in the proceedings of the trial will undoubtedly infuriate the left, but despite the hysteria, he's absolutely correct. On Friday evening, Chief Justice John Roberts announced that should a tie arise during the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump, he would not step in to break it. Given the near-even split of the Senate along party lines, Roberts’ comments put an end to the extensive speculation that had been bubbling around Washington.Senate Minority leader Chuck Schumer prompted Chief Justice Roberts by asking the Justice if he was aware of two instances in which Chief Justice Salmon...

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer was quickly mocked Friday after praising Chief Justice John Roberts of the U.S. Supreme Court for rebuking President Trump’s recent “Obama judges” comment -- while at the same time slamming Roberts’ “partisan decisions.” “I don’t agree very often with Chief Justice Roberts, especially his partisan decisions which seem highly political on Citizens United, Janus, and Shelby,” the Democrat wrote in a Twitter message. “But I am thankful today that he — almost alone among Republicans — stood up to President Trump and for an independent judiciary.” Critics on social media and elsewhere pointed out that...

NEW stmt from Schumer spox: “For Justice Roberts to follow the right wing’s deliberate misinterpretation of what Sen Schumer said, while remaining silent when Pres Trump attacked Justices Sotomayor & Ginsberg last week, shows Justice Roberts does not just call balls and strikes.”— Frank Thorp V (@frankthorp) March 4, 2020 Let’s go in order.

    Supreme Court justices have in the past few weeks faced a thwarted assassination attempt, tense protests outside their homes, and death threats. Yet some Democrats in Congress don't think they need extra security. The Senate in May unanimously passed a bill to provide armed security for the families of Supreme Court justices following the leak of a draft opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade. House Democrats responded by stalling the bill for more than a month, even as leftist groups drafted battle plans to shut down the Supreme Court and an assassin traveled across the country to murder Justice...
  • ‘Following Orders’: Republicans Point to Schumer Telling Kavanaugh He’ll ‘Pay the Price’ in Wake of Would-Be Killer’s Arrest

    Republicans have been highlighting a past video of Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) warning Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh he will “pay the price” in the wake of a would-be assassin being arrested outside the judge’s home. The video of Schumer is from a 2020 protest outside the court. Schumer spoke to the crowd of activists as the judges heard a case on a Louisiana law restricting abortion access. The armed man who was arrested outside Kavanaugh’s Maryland home this week reportedly told police he was angered by a recent opinion draft leak out of the Supreme Court suggesting Roe v....

    During an appearance on Wednesday’s broadcast of FNC’s “Jesse Watters Tonight,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) warned there could be more trouble ahead in the wake of the threat aimed at Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s life uncovered earlier in the day. Graham blamed rhetoric from Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and the inaction of Attorney General Merrick Garland for what he deemed to be the “logical extension” of the threat of violence.

    Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said the two Trump-appointed conservative Supreme Court justices “will pay the price” for “awful decisions” in abortion rights cases. Schumer addressed justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh in front of a crowd at the Supreme Court and appeared to threaten Senate Republicans and the administration if the court voted in favor of the Louisiana abortion law that could result in the court revisiting the protections provided in the Roe v. Wade ruling. “I want to tell you, Justice Kavanaugh and Justice Gorsuch, you have unleashed a whirlwind, and you will pay the price,” Schumer...

    A California man who said he was angry that the U.S. Supreme Court may soon overturn Roe v. Wade has been charged with threatening to murder Justice Brett Kavanaugh outside his Maryland home early Wednesday morning. Heavy reports court records identified the man as Nicholas John Roske, 26, of Simi Valley, California. Roske was arrested around 1:50 a.m. Wednesday morning near Kavanaugh’s home, according to authorities. Police said he was armed with a pistol, knife, pepper spray, zip ties, a hammer and crowbar, according to USA Today. Roske allegedly threatened to kill Kavanaugh because he was upset that the justice...

    The Democrats should be held accountable for last night’s attempt on the life of Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Most notably, of course, Chuck Schumer issued a fatwa against Kavanaugh and Justice Neil Gorsuch, which last night’s would-be assassin apparently attempted to execute. -snip- The truth is that Biden and Democrats are directly responsible for this assassination attempt, excusing and encouraging activists for weeks to target justices and their families at their homes: May 5: Press Secretary Jen Psaki refused to condemn activists posting the justices’ home addresses online. May 6: Psaki refused to say if Biden “has a view” on activists...

    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) called out President Biden, Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and other Democrats Wednesday while urging the House to approve legislation boosting protection for Supreme Court justices “before the sun sets today” after an armed man was arrested outside Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s Maryland home. “This is where we are … an assassination attempt against a sitting justice or something close to it,” McConnell said on the Senate floor. “This is exactly the kind of event that many worried that the unhinged, reckless, apocalyptic rhetoric from prominent figures ​t​oward the court​, ​going back many months, and...

    In a statement, the Supreme Court said the man was armed and “made threats against Justice Kavanaugh.” The suspect was taken to a local police station after he was arrested at about 1:50 a.m., the court spokesperson said. He was carrying an unspecified weapon and burglary tools, according to the Washington Post.

    Nicholas John Roske was arrested today and charged with attempted murder when agents of the FBI took him into custody. He has been charged with the attempted murder of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Initial indications are that Roske is not entirely cogent with his crime. Yes, it is serious no matter the condition of the alleged perpetrator, and there was premeditation during his confession to police during the initial interview by the arresting officer. In no means is this an excuse to his behavior, and he should be looking at both serious criminal ramifications and punishment, in addition to...

    A series of actions by the left has shown America exactly how deranged the Justice system in this country is. In March 2020 Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) threatens the Supreme Court, specifically Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh. I want to tell you, Gorsuch, I want to tell you, Kavanaugh, you have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions. On May 2, some unappreciative little maggot SCOTUS clerk leaked an Alito opinion to Politico in an effort to pressure Alito to change it. Then things...

    Comedian Bill Maher said Friday on HBO’s “Real Time” that The New York Times “buried” on page A20 the story about the attempted murder of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Mahar said, “OK, and they stopped him. OK? But he was, he’s from California, Chuck Schumer said some very inflammatory words, the kind of thing that people on the right to say and there’s a horrible shooting and they blame it is rather comparable. And Chuck Schumer did walk it back. Nobody on the right ever does that. He did. I saw this. He did. He said, ‘We’re from Brooklyn....

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez self-hyped her effort to block a Senate-approved bill that would step up security protections for Supreme Court justices and their immediate family members Thursday — a day after an armed man was arrested for attempting to murder Justice Brett Kavanaugh. The Bronx Democrat posted a video on her Instagram feed of her running up the steps to the Capitol so she could be present on the House floor to stop a unanimous consent request by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) to move the measure. In a subsequent video, the “Squad” member claimed McCarthy was trying to...
