If the allegations against Scalia and Thomas are true — and I genuinely hope that this issue is seriously investigated within the Obama Administration — then these Justices need to face formal investigation, and potentially impeachment. There was perhaps little question that Scalia and Thomas’ rulings contained a definitive political influence — more so than any Justices over the past 75 years. The role of any jurist should be to keep a firm distance from politically-motivated influences and decisions. Such a principle is fundamental to our system of justice. If these Justices violated this principle, then they should resign or face investigation and, ultimately, removal.
