ANALYSIS/OPINION:

President Trump has the right to be incensed about the conduct of ‘left coast’ courts. Although the president’s tweet about Seattle Federal District Court Judge James Robart was misinterpreted, Mr. Trump was correct that the judgment against his immigration suspension is not the act of a judge, but is instead a political act.

The standing of the states to challenge the ruling is very questionable. Their arguments against the clear language of the Constitution and congressional law can only be persuasive on political, not judicial, grounds.

The proper resolution of this politicizing of the federal judicial process is found in the Constitution, Article 1, Section 3: “The Senate shall have the sole power to try all Impeachments … “

Judge Robart and the majority voters in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals should be impeached for judicial malfeasance. They are not empowered to make Law to conform to their preferences.
