CAN A SUPREME COURT JUSTICE BE IMPEACHED?
Ever since Roberts and Alito got confirmed to the bench, and ever since all of those 5-4 decisions with House Negro Clarence Thomas acting as the swing guy on all of them, I've been wondering, because Roberts and Alito were questioned about their ideologies and would they allow them to influence how they rule on the Court.
They said their personal ideologies would have no influence.
They've been influencing their opinions ever since convening of their session last Fall.
So, in other words, they lied, and they lied under oath to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Isn't lying under oath to Congress is not only an impeachable defense, but one for which a person can be sent to jail?
And the Rude Pundit agrees with me:
As long as we're all talking about impeaching people, shit, let's gear up for a post-2008 impeachment of Roberts and Alito for lying to the Senate Judiciary Committee by saying, without any hint of hedging, that they believed in the principle of stare decisis, or respecting precedent. Shit, the tortured way in which Roberts attempts to wedge a respect for precedent into the integration case is a genius turn of Rovean rhetoric: "If I just say I'm upholding Brown, then no one can accuse me of not upholding it." Or, in other words, they won't say they're overturning precedent - they'll just make it impossible to enforce the precedent.
Well, I don't know about impeachment of anybody in this corrupt administration, since Nancy Pelosi took impeachment off the table...
