Democrats are still so bent out of shape over the leaked SCOTUS draft, authored by Justice Samuel Alito, that appears to show the high court ready to overturn Roe v. Wade, that they’ve resorted to calling for criminal charges — against Alito.
According to Mediaite, Glenn Kirschner, a former federal prosecutor and current MSNBC legal analyst, actually suggested during a radio interview with host Dean Obeidallah that “perjury” charges should be considered for Justice Alito, or at the very least, face hearings.
Sadly, Kirschner appeared to be sober during the interview, which means he was actually serious when suggesting that because Alito’s viewpoint on Roe was slightly different during his confirmation hearings, that his position now, which includes overturning the 50-year-old decision, means he’s in some kind of criminal trouble.
As @glennkirschner2 said on my @SXMProgress show: Congress should at least hold hearings about Supreme Court justices lying under oath that they believed that Roe v Wade was “settled law.” Congress can’t simply ignore it. He’s 100% right! https://t.co/EqchYUmdZp via @mediaite

The idea garnered equal amounts of support — from the pro-baby-killing left, and extreme criticism from anyone with half a thinking brain.
“Well, my take is all of those justices misrepresented and deceived the senators and by extension, the American people under oath during their confirmation hearings. Why? Because they couldn’t speak the truth,” Kirschner said when asked about the issue.
He added: “Look, Sammy ‘The Bull’ Alito is not as smart as he thinks he is because he, in that draft opinion, put the lie to his confirmation hearing testimony when he communicated under oath. Hey, settled precedent, stare decisis entitled to respect.”
“And at the end of the day, maybe it doesn’t result in articles of impeachment, but gosh dang it, we deserve to have hearings and look into it, get to the bottom of it. And if a perjury charge can be made and the articles of impeachment ought to be drawn up. Then we have to consider it.”
No wonder the Democratic Party is in such disarray — as it’s being guided by absolute whackjobs.
