Grassfire reached out to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's (R-KY) office this morning. We asked our contact there about a possible vote to censure Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) for threatening two Supreme Court Justices at an abortion rally last week. Here's the email reply we received:
"To be determined. There are other matters at hand right now."
By "other matters," we assume he means the widening panic about the Chinese Coronavirus. While this illness is serious and requires every American to take necessary precautions, we can't let fear-mongering media and big-government Democrats push everything else aside.
Right now, the Left is STEAMROLLING the rights of law-abiding Americans! The National Guard is "containing" part of a city in New York. Government officials are discouraging (and in some cases, prohibiting) citizens from assembling in large crowds. They're also encouraging us NOT to travel freely inside our own country. To top it all off, the highest-ranking Democrat in the Senate brazenly threatened two Supreme Court Justices last week -- and might get away with it!Read more
Since emailing you this morning, Grassfire has learned more about GOP efforts to censure Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) for his threats against two Supreme Court Justices last week. Republican Senators are pushing ahead on a resolution introduced by Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) that officially condemns Schumer for his verbal attacks targeting Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh. FOX News reports:
Hawley's resolution, which was co-sponsored by 14 senators, called for Schumer to be censured for the comments, which it describes as "an attempt to unduly influence the judicial decisions of the Supreme Court of the United States and to undermine the vision of the founders of the United States of the 'complete independence of the courts of justice.'"
FOX News also says that even left-leaning legal experts have called Schumer's rhetoric "inexcusable," "inappropriate" and "wrong."

Sign The National "Censure Schumer!" Petition NOW!
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) may have thought he was simply delivering an "applause line" in front of a "friendly" crowd of abortion supporters on the front steps of the Supreme Court of the United States on March 4, 2020. But, in fact, it was a totally inappropriate threat against two excellent and esteemed jurists: Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.
"I want to tell you Gorsuch, I want to tell you Kavanaugh, you have released the whirlwind," Sen. Schumer yelled. "And you will pay the price! You won't know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions."
As a direct response to Schumer's hateful rhetoric, Grassfire is empowering our team members to call on Congress for the immediate censure of the Senior Senator from New York. His totally inappropriate verbal attack against the judicial branch, which exists to protect the rights of EVERY AMERICAN, demands a retraction, full apology AND his immediate resignation.
The "Censure Schumer!" Petition States:
I'm calling on members of Congress to censure Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) for his appalling threats against two highly esteemed jurists for the Supreme Court of the United States: Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh. In fact, I think the Senior Senator from New York should resign immediately for his offensive, inappropriate verbal attack on members of the judicial branch.
Americans are tired of the hateful rhetoric that has infected Congress and its so-called "leaders." The fact that it came out of the mouth of the highest-ranking Democrat in the United States Senate is especially troubling. The Senate Minority Leader knows better and should immediately retract his awful, threatening statements, personally apologize to the Justices and resign from the Senate. Please respond to this petition by taking swift action to censure Mr. Schumer and see him removed from office.
