Calls for Chuck Schumer's Impeachment over Kavanaugh Assassination Attempt

•, By: Jay Greenberg

Calls are mounting for Democrat Sen. Chuck Schumer to be impeached after an assassination attempt against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was foiled on Wednesday.

During a pro-abortion speech in March 2020, Schumer promised Kavanaugh he would "pay the price" for his pro-life views.

Earlier Wednesday, armed leftist Nicholas Roske of Simi Valley, California was arrested near Kavanaugh's home in Chevy Chase, Md.

Roske allegedly arrived in a cab around 1 am, according to police.

He was armed and carrying a rucksack full of "burglary tools."

After recognizing U.S. Marshals surveilling the residence, he reportedly called 911 to turn himself in to the Montgomery County Police Department.

Roske later appeared in a Greenbelt, Md., federal courtroom after allegedly telling law enforcement he intended to kill Kavanaugh.

On Wednesday's broadcast of Fox News's "The Five," co-host Jesse Watters pointed to Schumer's 2020 public warning to conservative justices who may decide to overturn Roe. v. Wade and return abortion regulation to the states.

Schumer pledged that Kavanaugh, among others, would "pay the price" after having "released the whirlwind."

By Schumer's party's own standards, Watters said, the New York Democrat should be impeached over his incitement.

If Roske were a right-wing agitator, he argued, Democrats would tie his independent actions to someone like Donald Trump.
