Lewis Calls On Smith To Disavow SCOTUS Threat

March 5, 2020

WOODBURY, Minn. — U.S. Senate candidate Jason Lewis released the following statement calling for Senator Tina Smith to disavow Senator Chuck Schumer’s attack on the Supreme Court:

“Democrats reached a new low yesterday when Senator Tina Smith’s main political and financial benefactor, Chuck Schumer, threatened Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh. Schumer’s unprecedented assault on the independence of the judiciary even earned a rebuke from Chief Justice John Roberts. Rather than standing up for decency and condemning the despicable attack, Democrats have remained silent. This is inexcusable.

Today I’m calling on Senator Tina Smith to disavow Schumer’s threats. Failure to do so would be even more evidence that Smith is all in with the radical “resistance” left that uses harsh, even violent rhetoric to attack those they disagree with, as we saw with Schumer’s despicable commentary yesterday. This shouldn’t be a hard decision. Do the right thing, Tina.”
