The Latest Attack on Supreme Court Justices

“Squad” leader Andrea Ocasio-Cortez is among the most vocal of far-left Democrats screaming to bring perjury charges against conservative justices who swore under oath during confirmation hearings to uphold Roe v. Wade, but now voted otherwise.

Conservative Justices Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett, who voted to overturn Roe v. Wade in a 5-4 vote, have been accused by AOC and others on the left of misleading the public and members of the Senate about their intentions during their respective confirmation hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

The calls to impeach the justices for misleading the public have been led by AOC, who last month said that “there must be consequences” for upending democratic institutions with false statements.

“If we allow Supreme Court nominees to lie under oath and secure lifetime appointments to the highest court of the land and then issue — without basis, if you read these opinions — rulings that deeply undermine the human civil rights of the majority of Americans, we must see that through,” she said on NBC.

Several other House Democrats have joined in the calls to get answers on whether the justices misled the public about overturning Roe.

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), however, said removing a justice is “not realistic” when he was asked if Justice Clarence Thomas should be impeached. AOC had similarly called for Thomas’s impeachment because of his wife’s connection to Donald Trump and the Jan. 6 uprising.

The House can file articles of impeachment for a federal judge with a majority vote, but the Senate must secure a two-thirds majority vote to remove a judge. As a result, any impeachment effort for a Supreme Court justice would face a monumental uphill battle. Democrats now have 50 Senate seats, but not all 50 of those Democrats would be likely to vote to impeach a Supreme Court justice.

Only one Supreme Couth justice in the history of the institution has been impeached.

In 1805, the House impeached justice Samuel Chase, but the Senate acquitted him.

Chase, a federalist with a “volcanic personality,” was accused of bitter partisan rhetoric, refusing to dismiss biased jurors, and excluding or limiting defense witnesses in at least two cases, according to the Senate’s historical recounting of the event on its website.

Convincing the public and lawmakers that Kavanaugh, Barrett, and Gorsuch should be removed because of “perjury” could be difficult because their comments could be interpreted in different ways.

According to Factcheck.org, Gorsuch, in his 2017 hearing, said Roe was a “precedent” that deserves standing but also refused to say how he would rule on a case challenging it.

“If it looks like I am giving hints or previews or intimations about how I might rule, I think that is the beginning of the end of the independent judiciary if judges have to make, effectively, campaign promises for confirmation,” Gorsuch said.

During his confirmation hearing in 2018, Kavanaugh said Roe was an “important precedent” that has been “reaffirmed many times,” including through 1992’s Casey v. Planned Parenthood.

“That makes Casey precedent on precedent. It has been relied on,” Kavanaugh said, according to Factcheck.org.

However, Kavanaugh also said he would be open to new arguments on any case, adding that he has an “open mind” and that a justice should “listen to all arguments.”

As for Barrett, in her 2020 hearing said she would follow the doctrine of stare decisis, which means following a precedent, but she also said Roe was not a “super precedent.”

“Scholars across the spectrum say that doesn’t mean that Roe should be overruled, but descriptively, it does mean that it’s not a case that everyone has accepted and doesn’t call for its overruling,” she told the Senate.

The bottom line? Despite the rantings of AOC and those of her ilk, there is very little chance that impeachment proceedings will be brought against any of the Donald Trump-appointed and Senate-confirmed conservative justices.

  1. Seriously get so tired of seeing these it isn’t like these people voted to confirm the justices anyways so who cares. Do stupid people really fall for this . Yes we are a country moving back to killing mo more babies . You people don’t even know the half of what these evil people been doing . The satanic worshiping elites. Wait til you find out .

  2. IGNORANCE of the Constitution & the Rule Of Law is being displayed by the RIOTOUS SQUAD MEMBERS. They should be impeached for the mischief & trouble they are attempting to cause. Thankfully LITERATE FOLKS ignore them.

  3. Has anyone bothered to explain to this Ignorant, Big Booty Latinx Skank, that answering Hypothetical Questions is not Lying? That Judicial Nominees are frequently asked questions in which they have no facts or precedence with which to give anything more than yes/no in response to a question?
    How about Ginsburg, Beyer, Sotomayer and Kagen all saying “Yes” that they support the 2nd Amendment, yet all four consistently supported Unconstitutional Legislation or Dissented from majority opinions that supported the 2nd Amendment?
    Perhaps Pelosi and Schumer need to explain it to her, that her argument is as empty headed as she is.

    To the residents of New York’s 14th Congressional District, is AOC the best you can do? While you all support her lies, hysterics and hyperbole, the rest of the country thinks you all are dumber than she is. Are you really OK with that? Because, the rest of the country believes her district is inhabited by Morons.

  4. If AOC thinks anyone can be impeached for false statements, then the entire Democratic Congress can be impeached. Especially Pelosi, Nadler. Schumer, and SCHIFF IN PARTICULAR. Next Cassidy Hutchinson should be prosecuted for following the Democrats false directives.

  5. Democrats appeal to the most ignorant and arrogant segments of the population. Bring back literacy tests and you’ll get rid of many ignorant voters who should not be voting at all. Go after voter fraud, illegal immigration, enforce voter ID laws, defend gun ownership and religious freedom, reduce the black birthrate as a means of reducing crime and dysfunctional behavior, make it a federal crime to commit a crime with a gun and make a long prison term mandatory. Stop voting for Democrats period.

  6. Talking about ignorance. To you all the claim be smart. Can you please be honest an tell the world who was the immigrants who came to America. Who was living in America before it was discovered. Like always taking advantage of the other who have less power then you. Either you are republicans or democrats it doesn’t matter what party you believe in. At the end you all are the same.

  7. If ANYONE EVER NEEDED to be IMPEACHED, it’s AOC and her ENTIRE Squad! If for NO OTHER REASON than being a TRAITOR to our country! ALL of them are as despicable as they come! Un-American, Un-Patriotic, Groveling and as Un-Appreciative as a terrorist! They ALL need to be dropped over Afghanistan!😡👎💩

  8. IT’S SICKENING TO KEEP SEEING THE FAR LEFTIST LIBERAL HATERS so totally against the RIGHT SIDE OF LIFE, LIBERTY and the PROSUIT to happiness in the USA. They think anything they conger up to rid the Republicans out of any office because they disagree with them on everything!!! The only thing I keep on my mind is that we will win in the very end of this earth as we know it. GOD BLESS AMERICAN IF YOU STILL CAN!

  9. I just got this reply on my remarks which were not horrid by any means..Thanks Conservative FREE PRESS! for this message:

  10. Whan asked if they would support Roe V Wade it was the law of the land and they all said yes, they would obey the law. …..THEN a court case came before them as to the constitutionality of the law,,,,,and it was proven to be unconstitutional so they had to vote to have it stricken down. – Now it is NOT the law of the land. At no time did they lie about obeying the law.

    How can these mental midgets conclude that making a statement they follow the law of the land is perjury? The fact is under the weight of the evidence proving RVW was unconstitutional it’s the commie judges that voted to subvert the constitution are the ones that need to be impeached and removed from office.

    The problem is the NWO Marxists (democrats) and their RINO Republican collaborator pals can’t get it through their heads that the law is the law and if the constitution doesn’t say so you can’t do it. Laws have to be followed even when you don’t agree with them. ….If they don’t like it the only solution is to get the law changed…..which is what happened to Roe V Wade. . If they have a problem with that get an amendment to the constitution (good luck with that. People do NOT want to legalize unrestricted abortions)
