Ted Cruz Busts Schumer for Disgraceful Threats Against Supreme Court Justices, Showing How He Even Loses MSNBC's Chris Hayes

When even MSNBC’s Chris Hayes gets that Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) threatened Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh and can’t defend it, you know that Schumer is busted.

Initially, Hayes seemed to toe the line that Schumer was somehow just quoting Kavanaugh. Except that Kavanaugh’s comments were in no way a threat to anyone. Indeed, Kavanaugh’s comments were about the politicization that Democrats had let loose which he felt compromised and threatened the process and was harmful to America.

But Hayes then apparently saw the light.

Amazingly, Hayes even appears to be calling out Schumer’s prior remarks where he seems to warn/threaten that the intelligence community would/could go after President Donald Trump if he dared criticize them: “You take on the IC, they have 6 ways from Sunday at getting back at you.”

That’s pretty darn astonishing, as Ted Cruz pointed out with one word in highlighting Hayes’ comments.

Cruz blasted Schumer directly.

He also pointed out other liberals who called out Schumer.

Nice job, Ted. This cannot be countenanced and Schumer should not be allowed to spin this away.

Enough with Democrats encouraging harassment of anyone they feel doesn’t toe their line. This isn’t the first threat they’ve directed at the Court or at Gorsuch and Kavanaugh. They are trying to intimidate them and it should not be permitted.
