I do a lot of research and writing about judicial corruption in the federal judiciary and I noticed a very interesting posting by Representative Katie Porter (D-CA) on her Facebook page on July 1, 2022 where she said “No one is above the law, including judges and justices. I'm urging my colleagues to crack down on corruption in the courts and tighten ethics requirements for the federal judiciary.” This definitely caught my attention. I then noticed a video of Representative Porter addressing Congress where she very eloquently stated:
“All government officials must be held accountable, especially those entrusted with the power to interpret our country’s laws. Repeated scandals and lax ethics requirements for federal judges are eroding Americans’ confidence in the impartiality of our courts….The American people should not have to question if cases are being decided fairly. We need stronger ethics rules to prevent these abuses of power from happening again. I’m backing legislation that will root out corruption, prevent conflicts of interest, and increase transparency in all three branches of the federal government. To restore public trust in our institutions, we must hold government officials to the highest standards. No one is above the law.” https://www.facebook.com/watch/?ref=saved&v=1081944189393725.
