Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer apologized for the words he used at a pro-choice rally outside the Supreme Court Wednesday where he said Associate Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh will “pay the price” on abortion-related cases. “Of course, I did not intend to suggest anything other than political and public opinion consequences for the Supreme Court, and it is a gross distortion to imply otherwise,” Schumer said Thursday morning. “My point was that there would be political consequences… for President Trump and Senate Republicans if the Supreme Court, with newly confirmed Justices, stripped away a woman’s right to choose,” the Senator said on the Senate floor. “I’m from Brooklyn,” Schumer explained. “We speak in strong language. I shouldn’t have used the words I did, but in no way was I making a threat. I never — never — would do such a thing. And Leader McConnell knows that. And Republicans… manufacturing outrage over these comments know that too.” Via FOX News’ Chad Pergram:
