Quickie- Rep. Peter DeFazio: "I'm investigating articles of impeachment against Justice Roberts"


Today's Quickie:

Standing O:

"I mean, the Supreme Court has done a tremendous disservice to the United States of America," Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.) told The Huffington Post on Tuesday. "They have done more to undermine our democracy with their Citizens United decision than all of the Republican operatives in the world in this campaign. They've opened the floodgates, and personally, I'm investigating articles of impeachment against Justice Roberts for perjuring during his Senate hearings, where he said he wouldn't be a judicial activist, and he wouldn't overturn precedents."

Here comes the inevitable However:

"This is neither well-advised nor plausible," said Geoffrey R. Stone, a professor at the University of Chicago Law School. "Nominees may not perjure themselves, of course, but nothing in Roberts' testimony along these lines can fairly be characterized as perjury.

I think DeFazio should go for a twofer. How about throwing in ol' Clarence "Loves Me the Porn" Thomas for good measure? Because I could have sworn he perjured himself at the Anita Hill hearings.

That was today's Quickie. Was it good for you?
