    Please quote or paraphrase what lie Clarence Thomas told on the stand.

    I can paraphrase easily enough. At his confirmation hearing he denied that he had sexually harassed Anita Hill. There is mounting evidence that he did sexually harass Anita Hill. Ergo, he perjured himself.

    Like I said already, even if McEwen's assertions are proven, they don't contradict anything that Thomas said 19 years ago. He didn't say that he doesn't like women or doesn't like porn.
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    Even if her statements weren't incredibly dubious, and even if you're and hazl's arguments were not as worthlessly devoid of real logic as they are, and we foolishly went along with believing this woman as absolute truth...

    It still wouldn't means you could charge him with perjury.

    USC Title 18 Sec. 3282 sets the statute of limitations on perjury at a federal level at 5 years, which this would be WAY outside that 5 year mark.

    So even your suggested end game is ignorantly devoid of facts.

    Making sexual advances toward another person is NOT necessarilly sexual harassment.

    Sexual harassment is : "intimidation, bullying or coercion of a sexual nature, or the unwelcome or inappropriate promise of rewards in exchange for sexual favors."

    How exactly does Thomas' supposed actions fall under harassment?

    Incorrect. You culled the first line in Wiki for your definition.
    If you look at the EEOC guidelines, exchange of sexual favors for employment security is only one condition. Sexual harassment also includes acts which "unreasonably interferes with an individual's work performance or creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment".

    While the initial awareness of sexual harassment in the workplace focused on job security being used as a weapon to curry sexual favors, the sexual harassment definition goes beyond that and did so at the time of Anita Hill's testimony.

    I don't disagree with your definition.

    Making sexual advances is NOT necessarily sexual harassment. Do you understand that?

    Now please demonstrate that Thomas indisputably sexual harassed someone.

    Guy, do you believe that the accusation is enough to remove someone from a post held within the government?

    Heck, while we're at it, why don't we just impeach ALL of the conservative Justices for perjury?

    conservatives own the court, and it's going to stay like that. No judge is going to be impeached(Hell, how many have been impeached for the last 200 years?
