Should Supreme Court Justices Be Investigated For Perjury?



Conservative justices

The leak of a draft opinion showing that the conservative majority in the Supreme Court has moved to overturn Roe v. Wade has sent political shockwaves through the country ahead of the November midterm elections, with many calling it “the October surprise” in May.

According to a Washington Post-ABC News poll conducted last week, a majority of Americans — 54 percent — think the 1973 Roe decision should be upheld while 28 percent believe it should be overturned — a roughly 2-to-1 margin.

With the Supreme Court poised to overturn the right to abortion, Democrats have seized the moment to rally voters while Republicans are trying to shift the focus to the leak itself.

While the leak is one of the most stunning breaches of secrecy in the court’s history and will certainly sow distrust among the justices and further damage the court’s already tarnished reputation, legal experts doubt that the breach could constitute a criminal act.

In fact, the leak has put a legal spotlight on the justices themselves.

Here’s why: Many are claiming that Brett Kavanaugh, Neil Gorsuch, Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, and Amy Coney Barrett lied under oath during their confirmation hearings, and some are even suggesting possible impeachment.
