Back in March 2020, Schumer made a speech outside the Supreme Court as justices heard a case about a Louisiana abortion law, warning Kavanaugh and Justice Neil Gorsuch—former President Donald Trump's other appointee at the time—that they could face dire consequences for their "awful decisions.""I want to tell you, Gorsuch, I want to tell you, Kavanaugh, you have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price," Schumer, who was then minority leader, said at the time. "You won't know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions."On Wednesday, GOP Representatives Marjorie Taylor Greene, Vicky Hartzler and Mike Johnson quoted the Democratic leader after it was reported that an armed man was detained near Kavanaugh's home overnight.
They initially refused to condemn the protests, alleging that they were “peaceful” — even though federal and state laws prohibit attempting to sway the opinions of Supreme Court justices or protesting outside of private residences. Then-White House press secretary Jen Psaki said on May 5, “the president’s view is that there’s a lot of passion, a lot of fear, a lot of sadness from many, many people across this country about what they saw in that leaked document.”She elaborated in a later press briefing that President Joe Biden “certainly…encourage[s]” protests at the Supreme Court justices’ homes.“So I know that there’s an outrage right now, I guess, about protests that have been peaceful to date and we certainly continue to encourage that outside of judges’ homes and that’s the president’s position,” Psaki said on May 10.

"I am hopeful that we will get a verdict that says, 'guilty, guilty, guilty,' and if we don't, we cannot go away," she added. "We've got to get more confrontational."
