Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) scolded Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts at a hearing Tuesday for what he called the court’s “oblivious” response to the “obvious” ethical conflicts facing its members.
He chastised the high court for not adopting the same judicial code of conduct binding every other federal court and warned it had undermined public confidence in the court.
“The highest court in the land shouldn’t have the lowest ethical standards. That reality is driving a crisis in public confidence in the Supreme Court. The status quo must change,” the majority whip said in his opening statement at a hearing on Supreme Court ethics reform.
Roberts was not in attendance at the hearing, having declined an invitation from Durbin to appear.

This would be a great time for the Supreme Court to exercise their authority and Subpoena Durbin to testify to these statements in front of the Court, then JAIL HIM FOR CONTEMPT^
When Democrats talk about ethics you know someone they don’t like or someone they oppose has ethics that stand in their way.
Desperate Wicky Dick Durban and others, wanting to nullify the Trump appointees, now are caterwauling in public about establishing a 13 seat court to”balance the court."
What they are doing is trying to politicize Justice itself,and our constitutional law because they know they cannot stack the court with lefty commies through the Senate Judiciary Committee.
AMERICA NEEDS TO REJECT THESE RADICAL IDIOTS........AT THE POLLS.
Or soon there will be such disorder and crime that average , middle class Americans will have to resort to their 2nd amendment rights.
As for the SCOTUS Justices......I predict that assassination cannot be ruled out. They need full 24/7 security with armed guards at their homes prepared to shoot to kill.
Senator Durban is a raving lunatic, time to de-elect his a$$.........
Pot and kettle
Durbin is known for scrupulously adhering to the Constitution, especially when it comes to impeachments.
Durbin is the oblivious one.
In a government of three co-equal branches of government, which branch is the most powerful, Mr. Durbin? I know, a trick question...
Sen. Dirtbag is right. We still don't know the identity of the leaker.
“warned it had undermined public confidence in the court”
Ha! Any Illinois democrat machine hack talking about undermining public confidence is really laying it on thick. Haven’t had a legitimate election there in decades.
Oh, shut up Durbin. Just like BeijingBiden, Durbin has been an idiot his entire career.
DURBIN needs to learn how to read a calendar——
RULES were recently changed at USSC.
Thomas events were PRIOR-—For those in Rio Linda AND DURBIN-—that means BEFORE ANY RULES WERE CHANGED.
They need to drum up as much anti-Supremes propaganda as they can, they need to pitch “packing the court to fix all these injustices!” to their voters for the next election.
