Schumer's comments to justices 'new low': McCarthy

Kevin McCarthy, the top Republican in the U.S. House of Representatives, described controversial comments made by Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer to two new U.S. Supreme Court Justices a 'new low'.

Chuck Schumer, the top U.S. Senate Democrat, expressed regret on Thursday for remarks he made a day earlier that two Supreme Court justices appointed by President Donald Trump would "pay the price" if they rule in favor of abortion restrictions.

"I'm from Brooklyn.

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," Schumer said on the Senate floor amid calls from Republicans that he apologize for his comments about Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.

Schumer seemed to stop short of a full apology, saying instead that the words he used during an abortion rights rally outside the Supreme Court building directed at the two conservative justices "didn't come out the way I intended to."
