Senate Judiciary invites chief justice to testify on ethics
The Senate Judiciary Committee is calling on Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts to testify on ethics rules for the Court.
The request comes after revelations from ProPublica that Justice Clarence Thomas has close ties to a billionaire Republican donor. Thomas received luxurious vacations from the donor, which he did not report. The justice said he had been advised that personal hospitality from friends did not need to be reported the same way justices are required to report other gifts.
