The media never, ever learns, even after a disaster like The New York Times ill-advised excerpt from two reporters’ new book on the Brett Kavanaugh hearing, which had to have an editor’s note appended to add some critical information left out of the piece.

But that “mistake” has done its job, and now people are calling for Kavanaugh’s impeachment, though Rep. Jerry Nadler says his committee’s busy right now working on President Trump’s impeachment. And that meant that Vox had to jump in head-first and publish an “explainer” of just how Kavanaugh could be impeached.

About that “good behavior clause”:

In 2006, years before Christine Blasey Ford publicly accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of attempting to rape her when they were both in high school, the Yale Law Journal published a provocative paper.

The paper, “How To Remove a Federal Judge” by law professors Saikrishna Prakash and Steven D. Smith, lays out a road map for, well, how to remove a federal judge without resorting to the impeachment power. It argues that a provision of the Constitution stating that federal judges and justices “shall hold their offices during good behaviour” is widely misunderstood.

Oh, please.
