Nadler questions Supreme Court ethics after Alito flag debacle: 'None of them have clean hands' [View all]

Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) brought the question of Supreme Court ethics back to light after Justice Samuel Alito was criticized earlier this week for an upside-down American flag allegedly flying outside of his Virginia home in 2021.

“None of them have clean hands, none of them have clean hands,” Nadler said during an appearance Saturday on MSNBC’s “The Weekend.” “And again, I would say we need two things. We need to enforce a code of ethics. And we need term limits on the Supreme Court.”

Nadler, the ranking member on the House Judiciary Commitee, is just the latest lawmaker scrutinizing Alito after The New York Times reported Thursday that the upside-down flag flew outside his home in Alexandria, Va., on Jan. 17, 2021, and potentially for several days, shortly after Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol.

He said Alito did not deny that the flag flew “for several days” when the justice spoke with “Fox News Sunday” host Shannon Bream Friday about the report. “That tells me that that was okay with him,” Nadler said Saturday. “If it had been flown for a couple of hours and he found out about it and said ‘take it down,’ that might be a different thing, but it was flown for several days.”
