Washington, DC – Following the Supreme Court decision to hear International Refugee Assistance Project v. Trump, Rep. Ron DeSantis (FL-06) sent a letter with 57 of his colleagues demanding that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg recuse herself due to her demonstrated bias against President Donald Trump.
"Justice Ginsburg has launched a number of political attacks against Donald Trump and such attacks are incompatible with her judicial role," DeSantis said. "Ginsburg has demonstrated an anti-Trump bias and her actions have caused her impartiality to be in question. She must follow the law and recuse herself from this case."
The letter states, in part:
“As an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, you are required to recuse yourself in cases in which your “impartiality might reasonably be questioned,” and where you have “a personal bias or prejudice concerning a party.”
…There is no doubt that your impartiality can be reasonably questioned; indeed, it would be unreasonable not to question your impartiality. Failure to recuse yourself from any such case would violate the law and undermine the credibility of the Supreme Court of the United States.”
