Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

House Democrats trying to take SCOTUS action

House Oversight Democrats, led by ranking member Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), are holding a roundtable on Supreme Court ethics next Tuesday.

It’s the latest attempt by Hill Democrats to attempt to rein in the high court as liberal fury mounts at potential conflicts of interest among the right-wing justices.

Raskin and AOC will be joined by Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), a Senate Judiciary Committee member who has long called for court reform.

The roundtable will focus on Democratic arguments that the right-wing Supreme Court is rolling back civil rights and economic protections as well as undermining democracy.

We reported on Tuesday how Senate Democrats are frustrated by their failure to meaningfully cajole the Supreme Court into adopting an enforceable ethics code.
