Democrat Sheldon Whitehouse accuses Supreme Court of being in a 'fact-free zone as well as an ethics-free zone'

Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) claimed during an interview on NBC’s Meet the Press that the Supreme Court is “in a fact-free zone as well as an ethics-free zone."

It's one thing to debate the ideas that the Supreme Court holds, but to say that it is "ethics-free" is wrong and signals that Democrats are working hard to undermine the institution's legitimacy.

Whitehouse stated, "The work that we’re doing on ethics in the court ought to be easy, and yet it’s not; it’s partisan also. So I think that the first step is going to be for the judicial conference, the other judges, to put some constraints around the Supreme Court’s behavior and treat the Supreme Court the way all other federal judges are treated, and that happens inside the judiciary."

Whitehouse is angry with Chief Justice John Roberts for not listening to the demands of the left and punishing Justice Clarence Thomas for perceived transgressions.

Whitehouse's rant continued, "When Justice Thomas failed to recuse himself from the January 6 investigation that turned up his wife’s communications, he made the case that that was OK — he had no idea she was involved in insurrection activities. That is a question of fact. That’s something that could have and should have, been determined by a neutral examination, and then we’d all know. And so, the problem with the Supreme Court is that they’re in a fact-free zone as well as an ethics-free zone."

The Supreme Court has its own internal rules and processes for determining how justices must act. Democrats are simply angry that they have no control over the Court's internal processes and are now throwing around hyperbolic attacks.
