What a waste of a click....

I went to the source and nowhere in the article is there a “threat” to Justice Roberts.

Yes, Leahy lectured Justice Roberts. Yes, Leahy said that overturning Obamacare would “erode” the credibility of the court.

But there was no “threat.”

No threat? A United States Senator claimed that a Chief Justice of the Supreme Court would “erode the reputation and LEGITIMACY of the Court” if he should rule in a particular way. Pointing a gun at someone is not the only way to threaten them. Leahy is threatening the reputation and legacy of John Roberts and accusing him of potentially destroying the legitimacy of the Court itself should Roberts rule the ObamaCare mandate unconstitutional. That represents one hell of a threat to someone in Robert’s position. He’s being threatened with responsibility for great damage to the Court.
