Impeachment and the Democrats


The Daily Caller reports that Congresscritter Keith Ellison has noted that a Democrat-controlled House of Representatives could impeach a Republican-appointed Supreme Court justice. He’s correct. A handful of federal judges have been impeached by the House, and some convicted by the Senate.

Indeed, the Democrats could use one of their members as an expert to guide such a process. Before being elected to Congress, Rep. Alcee Hastings was impeached, convicted, and removed from his office as a U. S. District Judge.

  1. These Democrats really ought to learn which stuff they’re not supposed to say out loud.

    Sure, the Dems could do this *IF* they gain power. So the GOP, which has power, could do it right now.

    Keith Ellison would have a hard time objecting to it.

  2. This is a good time to point out that “impeach” means “to bring charges against.” The House impeaches, but the Senate holds the actual trial and the Senators vote on guilt, not the House members.
