Trump Says Biden Should Be Removed From 2024 Ballot, You Agree?

Democrats Move To Take Over The Supreme Court

Democrats are doing everything to gain control of the Supreme Court.

Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) has reignited the debate on Supreme Court ethics following recent criticism of Justice Samuel Alito. The controversy arose over an incident in 2021 when an upside-down American flag was reportedly seen outside Alito’s Virginia residence.

During an appearance on MSNBC’s “The Weekend,” Nadler emphasized the necessity of ethical reforms within the Supreme Court. “None of them have clean hands, none of them have clean hands,” he stated. “We need to enforce a code of ethics and establish term limits for the Supreme Court.”

Nadler, the ranking member on the House Judiciary Committee, joined a growing list of legislators scrutinizing Alito after The New York Times revealed that the flag was displayed outside his Alexandria, Va., home on January 17, 2021, and possibly for several days thereafter. This period closely followed the January 6 Capitol attack.

In a conversation with Shannon Bream on “Fox News Sunday,” Alito did not deny the flag’s extended display. Nadler interpreted this as an implicit acceptance, remarking, “If it had been flown for a couple of hours and he found out about it and said ‘take it down,’ that might be a different thing, but it was flown for several days.” Nadler further argued that Alito should recuse himself from any cases related to January 6 or former President Trump due to his perceived association with the ‘Stop the Steal’ movement.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) was the first to urge Alito to step aside from cases involving the 2020 election and the January 6 insurrection. Following suit, House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) suggested that Alito, appointed by George W. Bush, should at the very least apologize for what was seen as a disrespectful act towards the American flag.

In response to the report, Alito denied any involvement with the flag display, attributing it to his wife, who he claimed placed it briefly due to a neighbor’s offensive yard signs.

Judicial experts have highlighted that Alito’s actions potentially breached ethics rules, raising concerns about his impartiality in cases related to January 6 and the presidential election. The ethical scrutiny extends beyond Alito, with Justice Clarence Thomas also facing criticism over undisclosed luxury trips with wealthy benefactors. This has fueled legislative calls for a stringent and clear ethical code for the Supreme Court.
