Justice Alito's Flag Controversy Brings Scrutiny to Supreme Court Ethics - Amanpour and Company PBS

In the U.S., controversy over the Supreme Court continues. According to The New York Times, a second provocative flag was flown at a home belonging to Justice Samuel Alito. This comes after an upside-down American flag, a symbol of Trump’s election deniers, was seen flying outside Alito’s house shortly after the January 6th insurrection. Several justices have now had their impartiality called into question with little consequence.

Aaron Tang, author of "Supreme Hubris," believes the Court is overplaying its hand. The author joins the show to discuss how to restore public trust to this vital institution. - Originally aired on May 23, 2024.
