[WATCH] Former Federal Prosecutor: SCOTUS Justices Who Lied About Roe Could Be Charged With Perjury

Did the Federalist Society’s–sorry, Trump’s–Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett lie under oath about their opinions on abortion during their rushed confirmation hearings? Despite the Conservative majority on the Court, their supporters felt assured that they would uphold settled law. But that turned out to be careful lawyerspeak, as the recent overturning of Roe v Wade clearly shows.

Many current and former politicians, pundits, and activists are charging that the Justices lied under oath when they appeared to endorse the view that Roe was an unassailable precedent, even though legal precedents have been overturned dozens of times. Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York is just one member of Congress calling for an investigation and impeachment if it’s found they intentionally mislead the Senate. “I believe lying under oath is an impeachable offense,” AOC said. “And I believe that this is something that should be very seriously considered.”

Senate Democrats plan to take up a bill on May 11 that would codify abortion rights in federal law, but it is all but certain to come up short of the 60 votes needed to overcome a Republican filibuster.

Gorsuch said in 2017 that a good judge would consider Roe “as precedent of the U.S. Supreme Court worthy as treatment of precedent like any other.” In 2018, Kavanaugh said Roe was “important precedent” that had been “reaffirmed many times, while Barrett said in 2020 that she would “follow the law of stare decisis”—meaning showing a respect for precedent. All three voted to overturn 1972’s Roe and 1992’s Planned Parenthood v. Casey when they joined the majority opinion in Dobbs. They found that the right to an abortion is not constitutionally protected.

Former federal prosecutor Shanlon Wu believes there’s a way to impeach the Trump Justices because they all told Congress that they respected the Roe Decision. Wu says they can absolutely be charged if it’s found they perjured themselves under oath. Click through his thread, below.
