PA Chief Justice of the Supreme Corp scolds his own party

Yeah, the Chief is a Repugnantan himself and voted against the Court re-drawing the district map. Nevertheless he said to the PA legislators threatening to impeach the Dem Judges in favor of the new map:

"As Chief Justice of Pennsylvania, I am very concerned by the reported filing of impeachment resolutions against Justices of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania related to the Court’s decision about congressional redistricting. Threats of impeachment directed against Justices because of their decision in a particular case are an attack upon an independent judiciary, which is an essential component of our constitutional plan of government.”

Bravo for at least this Republican who can stand up for constitutional institutions instead of destroying them for the sake of rabid partisanship, and worse, promoting oligarchy at the expense of democracy.
