Enforce subpoenas for Supreme Court ethics investigation

To: Sen. Butler, Sen. Padilla

From: A verified voter in Lincoln, CA

July 1

Senator Durbin has issued subpoenas to Harlan Crow and Leonard Leo as part of his investigation into undisclosed financial ties between wealthy donors and Supreme Court justices. However, these subpoenas remain unenforced despite overwhelming evidence of misconduct uncovered by investigative reports. The Supreme Court's own precedents confirm Congress' broad authority to pursue oversight through subpoena powers, especially in cases involving suspected corruption of government officials. As the Senate Judiciary Committee chairman overseeing the federal judiciary, Senator Durbin has a constitutional duty to uphold the rule of law and maintain checks and balances on the Court. Failing to enforce these subpoenas would be an abdication of his responsibilities and would enable the Court's unethical conduct to continue unchecked. Senator Durbin must act decisively to compel compliance from Crow and Leo through civil or criminal contempt proceedings, or consider stepping aside if he is unwilling to perform this essential oversight role. The integrity of the nation's highest court is at stake.
