2 senators are requesting travel records of Supreme Court justices as part of a larger ethics investigation
Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse and John Kennedy want to see 10 years worth of travel records

By Marisa Schultz | Fox News

A bipartisan pair of senators are seeking travel documents for the Supreme Court justices as they question whether the High Court needs better transparency requirements.

Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., and John Kennedy, R-La., sent a letter dated Friday requesting travel records for all Supreme Court Justice's trips outside of Washington, D.C., since Jan. 1, 2011, including the name of the justice traveling, the location and the cost for security on each of those trips for the last decade.

The senators, both members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, say they are reviewing financial disclosure standards for the receipt of gifts and travel by senior government officials – including judges – under the Ethics in Government Act of 1978 and Ethics Reform Act of 1989. They raise concerns that members of the judiciary have far less stringent rules on financial disclosures than members of Congress and the executive branch, with the nine Supreme Court justices especially facing little scrutiny.

The Judicial Branch’s comparable guidelines are significantly less stringent," Whitehouse and Kennedy said in the letter. "Even those requirements, however, do not formally apply to the justices of the Supreme Court.  As a result, the justices of our highest court are subject to the lowest standards of transparency of any senior officials across the federal government."

The letter was addressed to AG Garland -- nothing will become of this, unless they are trying to get one of the conservative justices to step down.
