Can the other judges on the Supreme Court force her to recuse herself? Can anyone? Can a Republican majority Congress impeach her?

I believe but am not certain that a justice has to recuse themselves. A justice can be impeached but that's very doubtful I'd guess.

Justices are impeachable is all I know. The process surely is similar to the other two branches of government’t but haven’t a clue on the exact process.

Yes they can but not until they have a majority in the Senate. You see, the House votes to impeach (meaning: to charge) and the Senate tries the case (Meaning: guilty or not guilty.

This would be a most interesting situation and I for one, hope it happens!

Nope.

Can a Republican majority Congress impeach her?

Takes a 2/3rds vote in the Senate to impeach. It's very rare feat to pull off. The GOP isn't getting 2/3rds.

Force? No. Persuade? Maybe.

>> Can a Republican majority Congress impeach her? <<

Any majority in the HOUSE can impeach. Doesn’t have to be a “Republican” majority. They can impeach ANY executive or judicial branch government official, any time, for any reason.

But a conviction and removal from office takes 2/3 of the SENATE, not just a simple majority. And there’s simply no way that’s gonna happen.

Democrat Judges never recuse themselves. They are corrupt.

She can be impeached, which won’t happen, and would be after the fact anyway. Recusal is a function of her moral compass.

I don’t know.

No, because Republicans [as-a-party] have shown they do not have either the will or the moral-conviction to do so by applying the Constitution.
