Initiate Justice Alito's impeachment to safeguard judicial impartiality.

To: Rep. DeGette, Sen. Hickenlooper, Sen. Bennet

From: A constituent in Denver, CO

May 25

The integrity and impartiality of the Supreme Court are fundamental pillars of our democracy. Recent events, including the display of partisan symbols at Justice Alito's residence, have undermined public confidence in the Court's ability to render fair and unbiased judgments. As an esteemed legal scholar has rightly pointed out, if the Court's rulings are perceived as purely political, there is no reason for the public to defer to them. This erosion of trust strikes at the very heart of the judicial system. To restore faith in the Court's impartiality, decisive action is warranted. Alito's refusal to recuse himself from cases involving the former president, despite reasonable doubts about his objectivity, constitutes a dereliction of duty. His conduct falls short of the ethical standards expected of a Supreme Court Justice. Failure to hold him accountable would set a dangerous precedent, essentially condoning overt partisanship on the nation's highest court. Therefore, I urge you to initiate impeachment proceedings against Justice Alito. This measure, though extraordinary, is necessary to uphold the principles of impartial justice and maintain the public's trust in the judicial branch. The Supreme Court's legitimacy rests on its perceived fairness and independence from political influence. Allowing blatant partisanship to go unchecked would undermine the very foundation of our judicial system.
