Response to longship (Reply #2)

10. how on earth would that be even remotely considered an impeachable offense?

for anyone on the supreme court or their clerks, let alone anyone in the white house who merely picks up the phone and listens?

might a justice fire a clerk who leaked a vote? of course.

but where is it written, other than in books about supreme court traditions, that the outcome of their votes be kept secret until the opinions are released? what law would they be violating? what high crime or misdemeanor?


the separation of powers concept doesn't come into play here. that doesn't prevent communication or cooperation.
