2020 hopeful Democrat U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) claims if she wins the President seat in 2020 threatened Supreme Court members if they vote against Roe V. Wade. The two Gillibrand specifically targeted were Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.
Gillibrand who is not doing well in the Democrat primary polls made these extreme statements on MSNBC when discussing the Alabama anti-abortion bill.
Gillibrand stated, “And I’m gonna lift this up, and as president of the United States, I will not appoint any justice that does not agree that they will support the precedent of Roe v. Wade or any other judges.”
Gillibrand continued, “That is the law of the land, and I think both Gorsuch and Kavanaugh lied to the Judiciary Committee when they said they would uphold precedent. And if they then go back on this — this statement they made during their confirmation hearings — I think we should look toward what we will do to address it, because we need far more oversight and accountability over these Supreme Court Justices, and if they lied in their hearings, then we should take action.”
