Cruz tweeted:

As TCO reported, Senate Minority leader Chuck Schumer took a more remorseful tone over his incendiary comments about Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh that drew a rare rebuke from Chief Justice Roberts.

Schumer said “”I shouldn’t have used the words I used yesterday…They did not come out the way there were intended to.””

However, Schumer did not explicitly apologize or say “i’m sorry” to either conservative justice.

Jonathan Turley tweeted “Schumer’s “apology” sounds more like a diminished capacity defense: his anger over injustice led to threatening two sitting justices. So would this be the same defense recognized for Trump in his anger over immigration and other rulings?”

Schumer’s comments even drew some criticism from the left along with widespread condemnation from conservatives.

Liberal professor Laurence Tribe wrote “These remarks by @SenSchumer were inexcusable. Chief Justice Roberts was right to call him on his comments. I hope the Senator, whom I’ve long admired and consider a friend, apologizes and takes back his implicit threat. It’s beneath him and his office.”
