Pelosi is trying to change the Supreme Court.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said on Wednesday that the Supreme Court should have its own code of ethics.

Pelosi is the latest lawmaker to make a statement supporting the rules for over overseeing the high court which has been highlighted because of the controversy surrounding Justice Clarence Thomas’s wife and the messages she sent to then-White House chief of staff Mark Meadows regarding an overturn of the 2020 Presidential election results. 

Pelosi on Thursday during her weekly press conference said, “The justice of the Supreme Court has to at least have a code of ethics, A, and B, why should they have lower standards than members of Congress in terms of reporting and the rest?”

The Speaker specifically noted that Congress should pull out the section of H.R. 1, referred to commonly as the For the People Act, which asks the Judicial Conference to issue a code of conduct that will be followed by all justices and judges. The voting rights legislation was passed by the House in January, but because of the opposition from both some Democrats and Republicans, there have been delays. Pelosi said that she would like a portion of that bill to potentially be in a hearing. 

“In our H.R. 1. our bill to have cleaner government, we have called for the Supreme Court to have a code of ethics. They have no code of ethics. And really? It’s the Supreme Court of the United States, they’re making judgments about the air we breathe and everything else, and we don’t even know what their ethical standard is?” Pelosi asked.

“So I would like to see that bill have a hearing. Not the whole bill, but taking out that piece, we’ve already passed the whole bill, but to focus on the Supreme Court ethics standard legislation,” she said. 

Pelosi also noted that a hearing on this issue “pretty soon” was possible. 

The demand that a code of conduct should be implemented for the overseeing of the Supreme Court has gained traction in the past few days after the reports regarding Justice Thomas’s wife, conservative activist Ginni Thomas, came out.
