As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following opinion editorial written by attorney and political strategist Michael Starr Hopkins, and published by FOXNEWS.COM:

The Senate narrowly approved Brett Kavanaugh’s appointment to the Supreme Court on Saturday on a 50-48 vote, but serious questions remain about allegations against him of sexual misconduct and lying under oath. These might lead to his impeachment if Democrats win control of one or both chambers of Congress in the midterm elections.

At this point, any impeachment effort against Kavanaugh would be premature – and couldn’t realistically begin as long as Democrats are in the minority in the House.

The article goes on to state the following:

Instead, a real, in-depth FBI investigation of allegations against Kavanaugh is needed. This investigation should not have a time limit and FBI agents should interview far more witnesses than they did in their quickie 5-day mini-investigation that concluded Wednesday. If Democrats win majority control of the House they could authorize such a new investigation.

The impeachment process for Supreme Court justices is spelled out in the Constitution and it works just about like the impeachment process for the presidents. First, House members would consider articles of impeachment on charges of “treason, bribery or other high crimes and misdemeanors.” Those last two terms are only vaguely defined, essentially giving House members the power to determine what they cover.

If a majority of House members vote to impeach Justice Kavanaugh he would have to stand trial in the Senate. But he could only removed from office if convicted by a two-thirds majority vote – meaning 67 of the 100 senators.
