DNC Deputy Chairman Keith Ellison said on Monday that if the Democrats retake control of the House and the Senate this fall that they could potentially impeach Supreme Court Justices.
“Assuming the Democrats take the House and Senate in November … is there any possibility that the legislative branch will remove a Supreme Court Justice?” a person asked Ellison at a Supreme Court Community Forum in Minneapolis.
Ellison paused for a moment, then replied, “We have to find some evidence of like corruption, something like that.”
Ellison pointed out that lower court judges have been impeached as he left the possibility of impeaching Supreme Court justices open.
Ellison said that while impeaching a Supreme Court justice is not likely to happen, it could “theoretically” happen.
