David Barton has written much on the relationship of Christianity and the founding of the United States. In this book, I think he does a good job in convincing me that the checks and balance system when it comes to the court include the right to impeach a judge without having to have an actual previously written law that the judge has broken (murder, perjury, etc). The author brings many treasure trove of quotes (some of which are now in the public domain and can be searchable online!) to support his case that this was the historical interpretation from Founding Fathers, early Jurists, law text books, etc. I got to admit that at first I was skeptical but I am convinced that "high crimes and misdemeanor" does not mean only current statutory laws, but anything that Congress might find wrong as a means of checking the Supreme Court and the Court in general. Even if readers disagree, it's worth looking into his citation and historical legwork
Barton really traces the corruption some still mistakenly call a Justice System. This clearly points the way back to Original Intent..
How do we find a politician with the backbone to make these changes?
This book will give you a better perspective on what is wrong with courts than any Law School could (recommend Liberty adopt it as a text).
