There has been a lot of talk about Justice Clarence Thomas as well as the three Trump-appointed justices as of late.
However, Biden's appointed justice, Ketanji Brown Jackson, was just hit with an ethics complaint that raised some eyebrows on the right.
The left has been notorious for going after Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas since his first day on the bench.
Over the last year, Democrats have been pouring over his activities, claiming gifts and vacations from a friend were more or less bribes. Mind you, Thomas was reporting (or not reporting) these items per the existing rules, but that did not matter to Democrats. In response, Chief Justice Thomas published a code of conduct for the court members, which was a regurgitation of the rules for lower court judges.
I have openly questioned why conservative watchdogs were not firing back at the attacks against Thomas, and it has finally happened.
The Center for Renewing America, a think tank led by former senior Trump White House official Russ Vought, has filed an ethics complaint with the Judicial Conference regarding unreported income by Justice Jackson's husband.
Vought, in part, stated:
"Justice Jackson thus cannot claim ignorance of EIGA's gift disclosure requirements, and there is no serious argument that this 'massive event featuring performances by several musicians and groups' celebrating her investiture is not a 'thing of value.'"
Vought continued that the omissions by Jackson seemed purposeful to hide possible conflicts of interest.
I am not sure what will come of this complaint, but people need to realize that the justices on the liberal side of the bench are not squeaky clean. The media and Democrats have been on the attack since Trump was in office, and Thomas has had every piece of life dissected since he was put on the bench.
We can go back to trips that the late Justice Ginsburg took on the cuff, with one in particular standing out.
In 2018, Justice Ginsburg was given a private tour of Israel that was financed by Morris Kahn, an Israeli billionaire who had recently had business before the court, which fell in his favor, but nobody ever raised an eyebrow over this.
I am all for enforcing a code of ethics, but let's ensure it is enforced equally against all members, not just the conservative members of the court.
