Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) unleashed a threat directed at his GOP colleagues in the Senate in wake of Justice Ruth Bader Gingsburg’s death.

The unexpected vacancy on the high-court has shaken things up in Washington as President Trump is expected to announce his nominee to replace Ginsburg as early as this week.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had already signaled he would take up a vote in the Senate, but as to when that would happen is still unclear.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has been pushing for a new justice to be confirmed before November 3 out of concerns that there could be a contested election, and being short one justice could lead to a 4-4 tie on election-related litigation.

On the flipside, Democrat Sen. Richard Blumenthal fired off a warning on the prospects of Republicans pushing forward to fill the Supreme Court vacancy before the election.

“If Republicans recklessly & reprehensibly force a SCOTUS vote before the election—nothing is off the table,” Sen. Blumenthal tweeted.

Blumenthal is one of several Democrats to threaten the GOP with repercussions depending on how they handle the situation.

After seeing the Democrat senator’s statement, actor James Woods fired back by dropping a reminder about how Justice Brett Kavanaugh was treated during his confirmation hearings.

“Watching you in particular choke on this confirmation is one of the sheer unmitigated joys I anticipate over the coming weeks,” Woods wrote. “After what you lying savages did to Justice Kavanaugh’s family, this will be fireworks, champagne and caviar. Your threats are as empty as your soul.” See Below
