Governor Wolf: Attempt to Impeach Judges is Undemocratic

March 21, 2018

Harrisburg, PA – Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf released the following statement on legislation introduced by a group of House Republicans to impeach four Supreme Court justices over their disagreement with the Supreme Court’s redistricting decision:

“This is an unprecedented and undemocratic attempt to retaliate against the judicial branch. The legislature should be helping people, not settling personal grudges. This is nonsense and a waste of precious time and resources.

“The U.S. Supreme Court and a separate federal court have settled the matter.  This abuse of power should be stopped and House Republicans should start doing the real work the people elected them to do.”
