Why would we fall under judgment if we swear by something rather than saying a simple yes or no?

Because we do not have the way to guarantee anything, only God can do that......   You can't even promise even a single breath past the one you are taking now as you read this.

Matt. 5:33-37 NKJV Again you have heard that it was said to those of old, You shall not swear falsely, but shall perform your oaths to the Lord. But I say to you, do not swear at all: neither by heaven, for it is God's throne;; nor by earth, for it is His footstool; nor by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King. Nor shall you swear by your head, because you cannot make one hair white or black. But let your yes by yes and your no, no. For whatever is more than these is from the evil one.

The footnote in James for judgement is that it also means hypocricy. For what it is worth.
