Pearson could not name an instance when the Justice Department investigated a Supreme Court justice because of a ruling. Nor did he seem concerned with the invasive nature of an administration questioning the judiciary -- about a ruling that the executive branch opposed.

No worries, Pearson explained. The feds probably wouldn't have to interrogate Scalia or Thomas. They could question Koch associates or employees at resorts where the events were held.

There is no such thing as one investigation in America. If Republican-appointed justices sit in the hot seat, then be assured, Democrat-appointed justices will warm it later.

All hail the new civility.
