A few weeks back, it was reported that conservative judges at the Supreme Court were planning to overturn Roe vs. Wade. Many judges, when asked about this during their confirmation process, spoke of the importance of precedent. However, once they get the chance, they’re happy to overturn the law. Former federal prosecutor Glenn Kirschner said the judges should be investigated.
Dean Obeidallah recently asked Kirschner, “Any talk about the possibility of investigating them to impeach or impeach them, because they will come out that these people have lied and they will say, no, no who talked about it. And I guess they know they won’t win in the Senate. And is it too close to a line? But will you take in what you’ve heard? And what do you think these people are exposing themselves to or should be exposed to? ”
The former federal prosecutor replied:
“Well, my reasoning is that all of those judges misrepresented and misled senators and by extension the American people under oath in their confirmation hearings. Why? Because they can’t tell the truth. Can you imagine, Dean, if Alito swore what he put out in that opinion manuscript? ‘Roe was gravely wrong from the moment it was decided, and that is an abuse of judicial power.’ It’s a quote. Did he say or communicate anything about Roe v Wade anywhere nearby? He communicated the exact opposite.”
Kirschner then continued, “The message is, you have nothing to worry about the continued viability of Roe v. Wade, if you confirm with me. In essence, it was a false lie. And don’t let him go, Dean! ”
