Chief Justice John Roberts has fired back at Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), who appeared to threaten several justices on Wednesday. Roberts claimed Schumer’s recent comments about Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh were “inappropriate and dangerous.”

Earlier that same day, Schumer rallied a group of supporters outside the Supreme Court during hearings on a major abortion case. He said the justices will “pay the price” if they rule in favor of pro-life arguments.

The chief justice reaffirmed the Supreme Court will continue to do their job without fear or favor.

A much stronger rebuke came from President Trump, who responded to Schumer’s comments saying in a tweet, that “if a Republican did this, he or she would be arrested or impeached.”

He went on to say the senator must “pay a severe price” for these threats. Tweeting, “There can be few things worse in a civilized, law abiding nation, than a United States Senator openly, and for all to see and hear, threatening the Supreme Court or its Justices. This is what Chuck Schumer just did. He must pay a severe price for this!”

During an evening interview later that day, the president stated he was “amazed” by the “unequal justice” of the situation.

However, Senator Schumer’s spokesman, Angelo Roefaro, said the senator’s remarks were misinterpreted.

“For Justice Roberts to follow the right wing’s deliberate misinterpretation of what Sen. Schumer said, while remaining silent when President Trump attacked Justices Sotomayor and Ginsberg last week, shows Justice Roberts does not just call balls and strikes,” Roefaro said in a statement.
