Democrats are now threatening SCOTUS judges if they don’t do what they want.
Via Red State:
As Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s (D-NY) stalled presidential campaign grows increasingly desperate for attention in a crowded field, the Senator has turned to trying to “out-left” her own party on the issue of abortion.
Earlier this week, she essentially said that pro-life Democrats should no longer be allowed in the party, meaning that she’s on board with primarying the few remaining pro-life Democrats in the House and Senate.
But she made some disturbing comments on Wednesday that have been largely overlooked. Gillibrand suggested during an interview on MSNBC that “action” be taken against Trump-nominated Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch if they fail to uphold Roe v. Wade in a future case.
CNS News reports:
Gillibrand said President Trump has deliberately selected “radical justices” to “undermine basic reproductive freedoms and civil rights” of women.
“And I’m going to lift this up, and as President of the United States, I will not appoint any justice that does not agree that they will support the precedent of Roe v. Wade or other judges,” Gillibrand said.
“That is the law of the land, and I think both Gorsuch and Kavanaugh lied to the Judiciary Committee when they said they would uphold precedent. And if they then go back on this — this statement they made during their confirmation hearings — I think we should look towards what we will do to address it, because we need far more oversight and accountability over these Supreme Court Justices, and if they lied in their hearings, then we should take action.”
