WASHINGTON, June 25, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The six U.S. Supreme Court justices who voted to uphold ObamaCare should be impeached for abandoning the rule of law, explains attorney Larry Klayman. Klayman stated Thursday morning: "These six Justices have violated their own long-established rules of interpretation for applying statutes to instead advance their own political objectives or burnish their public persona. Such personal goals corrode the role of the Court. The Justices abandoned the rule of law and have become merely a political focus group."
As Justice Antonin Scalia makes clear in his dissent, the Justices actually rewrote the Affordable Care Act instead of interpreting it. Scalia wrote in dissent that the legacy of the Roberts Court will be "forever the discouraging truth that the Supreme Court of the United States favors some laws over others, and is prepared to do whatever it takes to uphold and assist its favorites." Scalia explained that the Court engaged in "somersaults of statutory interpretation" to save ObamaCare, rather than applying neutral and consistent rules to all laws equally.
Freedom Watch has grown especially concerned about the independence of the Supreme Court due to reports from a whistleblower that private information about Chief Justice John Roberts, and other judges and justices, were "harvested' illegally by the U.S. Government. Although it is illegal for the Central Intelligence Agency to operate within the domestic United States, a contractor whose company was hired to perform the "harvesting" for the CIA has come forward to blow the whistle. He claims to have proof that the CIA harvested personal and private information about Roberts and other federal judges and may be intimidating or subtly threatening the U.S. Supreme Court with the fear of personal attacks.
To preserve the Republic in its last gasps, Congress must impeach these Justices. The U.S. Constitution provides in Article III, Section 1 that "The Judges, both of the supreme and inferior Courts, shall hold their Offices during good Behavior," It does not give judges a term for life but only "during good Behavior."
Klayman is a former federal prosecutor, head of Freedom Watch and previously founder of Judicial Watch.
