[Ed. – In keeping with new Democratic Party slogan: Hey, hey, ho, ho, [fill in the blank] has got to go.]
DNC Deputy chair Keith Ellison told attendees at a Supreme Court Community Forum in Minneapolis Monday that Democrats could theoretically impeach Supreme Court justices if the party regains a majority following the 2018 midterm elections.
Transcript is as follows:
ATTENDEE #1: Assuming the Democrats retake the House and Senate in November. Would the first matter of business to be to the separation of powers, is there any possibility that the legislative branch will remove a Supreme Court justice? I know it’s constitutionally possible. I also know it’s never been done.
ELLISON: You have to find some evidence, of like, corruption, something like that. … I will say that there have been no court judges that have been impeached. And I will say there were some things that came up with Justice Thomas that were very concerning to me in terms of his impartiality, so I agree that it could theoretically happen.
