[ Editor’s Note: Never one to mince his words, Glenn takes the position that Alito lied under oath in his confirmation hearing with his answers to the Roe v. Wade precedent case, where he said at the time it was settled law, but now claims, just months out from the midterms, that it was an abomination.
So Glenn wants a perjury investigation, which seems like a long shot, but his call for an impeachment is the better route, as the issue can be vetted fully and sooner in that Congressional process.
The bigger concern for me is this signals that the majority of six Catholic and Republican Justices may have been sleeper agents and are being ‘activated’ at this critical time as part of our fellow citizen Republicans’ announcement that they would win the 2024 election one way or the other, and permanently rule.
Silly me, I would have thought they would have sprung it at the last minute as a big surprise, and maybe they did.
If we survive this new attack on our democracy, we will have to dig deeper into the Supreme Court’s communications, as agents for a particular political group, which could be considered a breach of their oath of office.
Even more crazy, if Clarence Thomas were convicted in an impeachment trial, would this current Supreme Court rule on his final appeal? It’s going to be a busy political and legal year, folks… Jim W. Dean ]

We have seen clear examples of misconduct on the Supreme Court. Justice Clarence Thomas engaged in deeply unethical misconduct by participating in a case involving his wife’s incriminating text messages to Mark Meadows urging an insurrection.
We have also seen a draft opinion authored by Samuel Alito seeking to overrule Roe v. Wade, revoking the constitutional privacy rights of women. Some of the language of Alito’s opinion directly contradicts Alito’s sworn confirmation hearing testimony, as well as the sworn testimony of other justices.
This unethical and possibly illegal conduct can not go unaddressed. This video sets out why Congress must open public hearings in the nature of an impeachment inquiry.
If misconduct by Supreme Court Justices goes unaddressed it will result in yet additional misconduct by Supreme Court justices.
