Can a Supreme Court justice be impeached?

The Constitution provides that impeachment is only for “Bribery, treason or other high crimes and misdemeanors.” That generally means felonies. A felony is a crime for which the prison term is one year or more.

Impeachment is only an indictment, a formal charge. Only the Senate can remove a justice after they try him and find him guilty.

Samuel Chase was impeached in 1804 by the House and not 1805 and acquitted by the Senate in 1805!

The only USSC to ever be impeached!

Even if Democrats were to impeach all of Trumps nominated and confirmed USSC Justices they ( Democrats ) lack the votes in the Senate for any convict and remove!

The wikipedia biography says this: "The House of Representatives served Chase with eight articles of impeachment in late 1803".

He was impeached March 12th 1804 and not in 1803 or 1805.

So what's your point? Only one SC justice has ever faced impeachment. Even if Democrats win control of the WH, Senate, and keep the House for the next decade, no one is impeaching any sitting justice. You can't impeach a justice for politically slanted rulings. No one sitting on the court would be subject to that....even though I think personally Thomas and Kavanaugh are scumbags and don't deserve to sit on the SC.

Forgive us if we don’t believe the Democrats have enough integrity not to do this. They did impeach a President over a Quid Pro Quo, despite evidence to the contrary.

I don't care if God himself came down and asked that it be done. It's not going to happen. It's just a right wing talking point.

He tried to leverage a foreign power to dig up dirt on his political rival. I don't remember Obama, Clinton, or Carter doing that. And forgive me if I gently remind you that Republicans impeached a President for lying about a blow job in the Oval Office.
Let's compare those two "incidents" and decide which is the most worthy of impeachment. :)

True.

The Democrats PRESENTLY lack the numbers to convict in the Senate.

Lord knows whether that will continue to hold true in the aftermath of November 3, 2020.

It all depends upon how many Republicans that the Orange Baboon-God drags down with him.

You will never have the 2/3rd vote needed...

I swear many of you on the left are as unrealistic as those on the fringe right!

The friggin Dumbocrats keep babbling about impeaching Amy Barrett. I researched the law on the subject and was setting it straight. If ya don't like the Constitution, don't read my damn posts. I refer to it often.

You are probably right... but the LAST general election served-up a shocker... and turnout so far is genuinely and extraordinarily massive. I wonder...

...I swear many of you on the left are as unrealistic as those on the fringe right!
Nothing unrealistic in speculating about Rumpian Autocracy-Enablers fighting for their political lives (and justly so) in various Senate races.

Here is the reality and Biden will win November 3rd and the Senate will turn blue with a slight majority that will be around 51 to 54 which mean Dems will lack the votes to Convict and Remove...

If House Democrats decide to attempt the impeachment it will backfire and hurt them down the road...

With a little legal investigation into the history of the right-wing hacks the impeached president trump foisted off on the American people as USSC Justices and federal judges, the corruption among them would total tens-of-millions-of-dollars they received collectively in illegal honoraria.

Their impeachments would be a yearlong process, perhaps much longer. After all, political conservatives, by nature, are corrupt. A quick look back over the past five decades proves this. (Except to the RWNJs, they live in their fantasy world of denial, where facts never penetrate.)
