WASHINGTON D.C. — REP. DAN GOLDMAN (NY-10) joined Courts Subcommittee Ranking Member Hank Johnson (GA-04) and other colleagues in a letter on Tuesday urging Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito to recuse himself from upcoming cases dealing with the events surrounding Jan. 6 and the 2020 presidential election. This move follows a shocking report describing the display of an upside-down American flag — a ‘Stop the Steal’ symbol — at Alito’s residence less than two weeks after the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. Alito claimed the inverted flag was hung at his house by his wife in response to “a political statement” from a neighbor. Goldman has repeatedly called on Chief Justice John Roberts to establish an ethics counsel within the Supreme Court.

“Today, we are compelled to request that you recuse yourself from any further participation in the cases of Trump v. United States, Fischer v. United States, and any other cases that may arise from the events surrounding January 6 or the 2020 election,” the lawmakers wrote in their letter.
