Rep. Biggs Introduces Resolution Condemning Schumer ‘Pay the Price’ Remarks


Rep. Andy Biggs(R-AZ) introduced a resolution Thursday to condemn Senate Minority Leader, Chuck Schumer (D-NY) recent remarks towards U.S. Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh would “pay the price.” 

“Threats towards any elected or appointed member of the three branches of our constitutional government are wrong and cannot be tolerated. Minority Leader Schumer is the leader of his conference, and, while he may offer public criticism about decisions with which he disagrees, he should not use rhetoric that is threatening and intimidating towards members of our independent judiciary” Biggs said in a statement. “Even after he was called out by many of his own colleagues and the Chief Justice, Leader Schumer would not apologize for his threats. I am introducing this resolution today to send a message that this threatening rhetoric has no place in the U.S. Congress – especially from a leader of one of our parties. I hope my colleagues will join me on this resolution.”
