Impeachment: 2 of the Most Powerful Men in America Hope To Avoid It

Good Day World!

The "I" word has been careening through the halls of Capitol Hill for two years as Trump's corruption has slimed the office of the President of the United States daily.

It looks like Justice Brett Kavanaugh's past college experiences have returned to haunt him again...

Kavanaugh was hit with another accusation of unwanted contact by a male classmate who said he saw Kavanaugh expose himself and press his genitals against a woman without her consent.

The most troubling thing about this accusation (from Day One of his confirmation hearing) was the coverup by the Republican Party and AG Barr to demonize one of his victims from college.

The classmate said he told the FBI about Kavanaugh's actions before the confirmation hearings, but they ignored him and never investigated.

Everyone from our womanizer president to his ethic-free minions knew there was bad shit in Kavanaugh's past, but chose to ignore it in order to get a majority on the Supreme Court.

A bit of history

Is it even possible to impeach a sitting justice on the Supreme Court? Yes. But, I need to qualify my answer:

First off, impeachment is rare. In 1804 the House did vote to impeach Associate Justice Samuel Chase, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence who had been appointed by George Washington.

At the time everyone knew the move was politically motivated. The Senate later acquitted him and he stayed on the court until his death in 1811. 

Here are the rules for removing a Supreme Court Justice.

The other conversation on impeachment continues to revolve around Trump.

When I think about how two of the most powerful men in our country are corrupt liars with no ethics troubling them, I don't imagine a swamp...

Oh! Hell no! I imagine a tar pit.

Time for me to walk on down the road...
