Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY–who has been widely condemned for his alleged threat to a Supreme Court Judge Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh–just last month asked Chief Justice John Roberts issued a statement condemning President Trump”to attack a Federal judge.”
In a Wednesday rally outside the Supreme Court, in the court hearing the case of abortion, Schumer told Gorsuch and Kavanaugh,”you won’t know what hit you if you go forward these terrible decisions.”
But at the same time in the Senate in February, Schumer begged Roberts to”defend the independence of the Federal judges”, after the ACE, on Twitter,to go after, the magistrate presiding over the trial of his former Deputy, Roger Stone.

“Don’t speak, now, in the middle of this brouhaha of a judge being attacked by the President before she makes a sentencing decision, and that’s when we really need the Chief Justice said,”Mr. Schumer said of the time. “So now is the time to Chief Justice Roberts’s statement. Now is the time to the chief judge directly and specifically to defend the independence of the Federal judges. I hope he will see fit to do, and do it today.”

Robert, who had publicly accused Trump in the past comments he had made about a Federal judge after they make a decision, the President does not like, does not make a public statement about Trump’s comments, in the stone case.
However, he did not condemn Schumer’s comments aimed at Gorsuch and Kavanaugh less than a month later.
“This morning, Senator Schumer spoke at the rally before the Supreme Court while the case is being considered internally,”Roberts said in a written statement Wednesday. “Senator Schumer said the two members of the Tribunal by name, said he wanted to tell them that’you must release the cyclone, you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward these terrible decisions.'”

Robert continued:”the justices know that criticism relates to the territory, but the threatening rhetoric of this highest level of government is not only inappropriate, they are dangerous. All members of the court will continue to do their work without fear or favour, from whatever quarter.”
Schumer’s office issued a statement to hit back at Roberts, which said that the Chief Justice deliberately put Schumer opinion of the case, also accused Roberts of prejudice. “Justice Robert’s not just calling balls and strikes,”the statement said.
On Thursday, Schumer apologized for his comments on the floor of the Senate, but not the more combative statement from his office late Wednesday cited a criticism from George Conway, the anti-king husband Kellyanne Conway, counsel to the President.
‘The judges know, the criticism relates to the territory, but the threatening rhetoric of this highest level of government is not only inappropriate, they are dangerous.’

“To his credit, Schumer walked back to his aggressive rhetoric. ‘I should not have used the words I did, he said, in the Senate four,”Conway wrote in the Washington Post op-ed. “This is a start, but he made no mention of a disturbing statement, his spokesperson released on Wednesday, had attacked Roberts.”
