The Alito Scandal Just Got Worse. A Dem Senator Explains What’s Next.



Earlier this week, Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito refused to recuse himself from hearing January 6–related cases amid controversy over an upside-down U.S. flag outside Alito’s home that’s associated with Donald Trump’s “Stop the Steal” effort. Then, on Thursday, Chief Justice John Roberts denied Democrats’ demand for a meeting, adding to the imperiousness around the conservative justices and making the Alito scandal look worse. We talked to Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, a senior member of the Judiciary Committee, about what he called the “omerta” code for right-wing justicesand whether it’s time for hearings into the Alito mess. Listen to this episode here.
