Just a few months ago Chief Justice John Roberts issued a warning and it has come to pass.
In January 2022, Chief Justice John Roberts sent President Biden and the Democrats a very stern message calling out their attempts to enforce “inappropriate political influence” against the court.
“The Judiciary’s power to manage its internal affairs insulates courts from inappropriate political influence and is crucial to preserving public trust in its work as a separate and co-equal branch of government,” Roberts said in the 2021 report.
Roberts called out Senator Chuck Schumer for threatening the court and planning to expand it from 9 to 13 seats if they make rulings the Democrats don’t like.
“We are not packing the Supreme Court, we are unpacking it,” Rep. Jerrold Nadler, House Judiciary Committee chair said at a news conference in front of the Supreme Court.
Nadler (D-NY), who consistently made a fool out of himself during the first impeachment of President Trump claims he will “restore balance to the nation’s highest court after four years of norm-breaking actions by Republicans led to its current composition.”
Democrats are also trying to find a way to legislate the court.
Democrats in the House have repeatedly introduced reasonable legislation that would require the Supreme Court to adopt a code of conduct while leaving the actual content of the provisions up to the justices themselves. The recent Presidential Commission on the Supreme Court has also recommended the adoption of an “advisory code of conduct.”
Under the guise of conduct regulation, the Democrats are trying to control the court but Justice Roberts addressed this in his report:
The Administrative Office is already working with the Judicial Conference’s committees—including Codes of Conduct, Financial Disclosure, and Judicial Conduct and Disability—with jurisdiction to address these problems. Among the steps underway, the Administrative Office and committee staff have begun a review of the current case-management software to improve automated detection of potential conflicts.
Democrats are doing everything they can to get their greasy hands on the court.
