      How judges, at any federal level, decide a case before them cannot be the basis for impeachment unless they were paid a bribe and the evidence is available to Congress. Only one justice of the SCOTUS has ever been impeached and only a dozen or federal judges have been impeached in the entire history of the USA. Unless they are convicted of a crime, or nearly so, you really can't remove a federal judge. There is also the policical reality that it takes the votes of 67 Senators to remove a justice. At this time, I don't think you could find ten Senators who would vote to impeach Roberts. That is due in part to the fact that many liberal lawyers, including some on this site, while they don't like the effect feel the majority in the Citizens United case were right on the law.
