For a historian, when present-day news events touch on something you've researched, the reaction is usually "Hey! Cool! I know some stuff about this!" followed immediately by "Holy crap, I can't believe this is still a thing. AAAARRRGGG." Anyhoo....impeachment.

1. Lots of people, based on this week's shitshow, have asked "can a Supreme Court Justice be impeached?" And the answer is YES; the Constitution says any officer of the federal government who commits "high crimes and misdemeanors" can be impeached (indicted) & tried by the Senate
2. Not only CAN a SC Justice be impeached, but one has, actually. Samuel Chase, a Maryland Federalist (and by all accounts, a supreme jerkface), was impeached and tried in 1804-early 1805. He was acquitted, but there's more to the story. I WROTE ABOUT THIS THING ONCE WOO HOO 😁
