As the left continues its relentless quest for power, Democrat Congresswoman Katie Porter has revealed her latest plan to control the conservative Supreme Court. During an appearance on “The View,” Porter suggested that Congress has the power to police the Supreme Court – and “should” do so.
“Congress absolutely can and should police the Supreme Court,” Porter said on the show.
“Residual power for our government is in Congress, not in the executive branch, not with the President, and not with the Supreme Court. And that’s because we’re the closest to the people. People elect and un-elect us every two years.”
Clearly, Porter’s grasp of the Constitution is as shaky as her commitment to reality. While it is true that members of Congress are elected every two years, the Supreme Court is designed to be insulated from political pressures and represent the rule of law.
Porter continued to spout her dangerous ideas, saying “Congress can pass the Judicial Code of Ethics for the Supreme Court. And when we do, by the way, we need to learn from our own mistakes with our congressional codes of ethics, in which we have seen this exact same play, which is ‘oops, I’ll tell you about it later,’ and people get off the hook for it.”
Not content with just trying to regulate the Supreme Court, Porter then went on to claim that her radical agenda is somehow virtuous.
“What it does is it erodes trust in government,” she said. “It makes people think that Congress is corrupt, the court is corrupt, that they can’t trust their federal officials.”

Porter’s suggestion that Congress can pass a Judicial Code of Ethics for the Supreme Court is in fact already in practice. The Judicial Conference of the United States has already established ethical guidelines that apply to all federal judges, including Supreme Court Justices.
Last week, court documents from Porter’s divorce resurfaced, bringing back to light a number of wild allegations levied against her by her now-estranged ex-husband.
