THE CAPTAIN REPORTS:

Senate Removes Judge Thomas Porteous Jr. Following Impeachment Trial .....

The Senate found U.S. District Judge G. Thomas Porteous Jr. guilty on four articles of impeachment Wednesday, removing him from his lifetime appointment to the federal bench in Louisiana and denying him his federal pension. Porteous, 63, sat in the well of the Senate as members cast their votes against him. He just the eighth judge in American history to be removed from office by the Senate.

During the Senate's day-long impeachment trial Tuesday, senators heard from House members who acted as prosecuting attorneys, presenting evidence that Porteous had taken bribes from local attorneys and businessmen with cases before his court over the course of several decades. Attorneys said Porteous then lied about his conduct to the FBI and the Senate Judiciary Committee to ease his confirmation proceedings to become a federal judge. He was also accused of filing for bankruptcy under a false name.
