Well, arguably the highest ranking elected public official of the Democratic Party has publicly and emphatically threatened two Associate Justices, by name, of the United States Supreme Court. Yesterday, Weds. March 4th, Schumer while standing on the steps of the Supreme Court Building before a rally of abortion rights supporters, while hearing is in progress inside, loudly spewed from his mouth the following: …"I want to tell you Gorsuch. I want to tell you Kavanaugh. You have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price. You won't know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.".....further...."The bottom line is very simple: we will stand with American people. We will stand with American women. We will tell President Trump and Senate Republicans who have stacked the Court with right-wing ideologues, that you're gonna be gone in November and you will never be able to do what you're trying to do now ever, ever again. You hear that over there on the far-right? You're gone in November."
Interestingly as you can readily see, he cannot keep his tenses straight. His remarks are delivered, clearly, in the past tense while in fact the hearing is in progress as he speaks. Now, a day later, he and his minions are trying to walk his remarks back by saying they were not a threat. No apology mind you, just his remarks were taken out of context and he intended no threat.
I can assure you as I watched and heard every word that any reasonable 6th grade English student would conclude the context was obvious and the intention was expressed in a clear and concise manner. As any reasonably intelligent person with walking around sense can see from the above quote it is most cogent and needs no interpretation no explanation.
