The smoking gun linking Schumer to the assassination plot is a speech he gave to a pro-choice rally in 2020. Was Schumer threatening a violent response? Schumer was threatening a political response, not a violent response. You can fairly impugn Schumer (whose home is the site of regular protests) for having endorsed the right of protesters to gather outside the homes of Supreme Court justices. Whatever you wish to say about Schumer, he is not a violent extremist nor the sort of politician who encourages violent extremism.
