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.

"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."

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?
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.

2001-2008: Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.
2009-2016: Dissent is the highest form of racism.
2017-? (Probably): Dissent is the highest form of misogyny.
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?
