Justice Samuel Alito schools Senate Democrats on 'unsound' demand he recuse himself
Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito issued an unusual statement to Sen. Dick Durbin's request, calling his argument invalid

Justice Samuel Alito on Friday flatly rejected demands from Senate Democrats that he recuse himself from an upcoming Supreme Court case, calling their argument invalid.

In an August 3 letter, Democrats led by Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., urged Chief Justice John Roberts to "take appropriate steps" to ensure that Alito recuse himself from Moore v. United States. The demand was made because Alito had sat down for a Wall Street Journal interview with opinion journalist David B. Rivkin, a practicing attorney who is a lawyer in the case.

"This argument is unsound," Alito wrote in an unusual statement added to a list of Supreme Court orders. "There is no valid reason for my recusal in this case."

Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee have been highly critical of Alito and the rest of the court for failing to adopt an ethics code, following reports of undisclosed paid trips taken by Justice Clarence Thomas and, on one occasion, by Alito. The committee approved an ethics code for the court on a party-line vote, though it is unlikely to become law.

Can someone please inform me as to what Dick Durbin, or ANY of his Democrat friends for that matter, would know about ethics.
