WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) delivered the following remarks today on the Senate floor regarding the Supreme Court:
“Speaking of public safety, as the Supreme Court prepares to issue its final opinions of the term, far-left activists are openly calling for riots and violence in the streets.
“For months, many of the country’s most prominent Democrats have indulged in reckless talk and irresponsible rhetoric, fanning the flames of fear and rage among their supporters.
“This poisonous climate has illegal mobs assembling outside Justices’ private family homes, and prompted one unhinged person to travel across the country for the purposes of committing an assassination.
“The far left is promising that all this will only be the prelude to the main event if they don’t like the rulings coming down the pipe. One activist group is promising that our cities will be submerged in, ‘a night of rage.’
“Well, yesterday, the Senate unanimously passed some supplemental funding for law enforcement to protect the rule of law and keep the Court, its staff, and the Justices safe from all this.
“This noncontroversial funding passed here unanimously last night. Zero objectors.
“The House of Representatives must pass this urgent bill without delay.”
