And how can we forget Judge Clarence and Ginni Thomas? Ginny Thomas recommended for the overthrow of the government. Meanwhile, Judge Thomas continued to rule on SCOTUS cases that had a direct impact on the aftermath of the insurgency, including Donald Trump’s attempt to block the Jan. 6 select committee from obtaining documents of the White House. In fact, Thomas was the only judge to dissent in that case. SUSPICIOUS!

Supreme Court judges must be held accountable for flouting the rules of ethics that apply to all other judges in the country. We must restore public trust, transparency, and accountability to the United States Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court Ethics, Recusal, and Transparency Act, recently reintroduced in Congress, would directly address accountability and transparency in the Supreme Court. This legislation would require the creation of a code of ethical conduct for the United States Supreme Court and the appointment of an adviser on ethics investigations, as well as the obligation for judges to publicly disclose recusal decisions.
We call on Congress to pass the Supreme Court Ethics, Recusal, and Transparency Act and try to start saving the suspicious SCOTUS.
Sign the petition to Congress: We must restore public trust, transparency, and accountability to the United States Supreme Court. Pass the Supreme Court Ethics, Recusal and Transparency Act.
