To Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell:
We, the undersigned, appeal to you and the Senate as a whole to officially censure fellow Senator Charles Schumer for his threats to Supreme Court Justices Kavanaugh and Gorsuch. Those remarks, made during a rally at the Supreme Court on a pending case, were clearly intended to influence the decision on that case. Despite Sen. Schumer’s later excuses, the 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.
