The push to censure Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is gaining steam. According to FOX News, the Coalition of African-American pastors is urging Congress to censure the Senate Minority Leader for threats he made against Supreme Court Justices Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh during an abortion-rights rally last week. The coalition's petition to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) reads, in part:
"(T)he comments were threatening in nature and were made with the intent of stirring up animus (and possibly violence) against the justices. This behavior is an affront to the dignity of the U.S. Senate. It perpetuates a sense of division in our nation and encourages radicals to approach political disagreements as a forum for violent action. The Senate should demonstrate that Senator Schumer has gone beyond the bounds of acceptable behavior and take appropriate disciplinary action."
FOX News also reports that, on Monday, dozens of conservative leaders signed an open letter to U.S. Senators calling for an official reprimand:
"(It) says that Schumer's previous apology for the remarks was insufficient and cites Chief Justice John Roberts' statement which called Schumer's remarks 'not only inappropriate' but 'dangerous.' It calls for the Senate to censure him."
If Republican Senators hear from enough grassroots Americans, like you, they can try to force McConnell to call for a vote on a censure resolution introduced by Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) last week. But that's only likely if the chorus of outrage against the Senior Senator from New York intensifies even more!

The Senate CANNOT give Schumer a "pass" on his reckless and dangerous comments. As the top Democrat in the "Upper Chamber," he MUST be held accountable! But, with each passing day, chances increase that his verbal attack against two Supreme Court Justices gets "swept under the rug" or "thrown into the dustbin of history."
