President Donald Trump Monday night called on Supreme Court Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg recuse themselves from any cases involving the president, a demand critics denounced as an \u0022outrageous\u0022 attack on the nation\u0026#039;s highest legal body.\u0022Justice Sotomayor issued a reasoned dissent noting a pattern among the justices of allowing the Trump administration to ignore the appellate courts and skip to the SCOTUS to secure their desired outcome.\u0022 —Kristen Clarke, Lawyers\u0026#039; Committee for Civil Rights Under LawTrump\u0026#039;s demand came in response to Sotomayor\u0026#039;s scathing dissent in the Supreme Court\u0026#039;s 5-4 decision to allow the president\u0026#039;s so-called \u0022wealth test\u0022 for immigrants—also known as the public charge rule—to take effect in Illinois. Sotomayor accused the court\u0026#039;s five conservative justices of favoring one litigant over all others—the Trump administration—in their ruling.\u0022This is a terrible thing to say,\u0022 Trump tweeted of Sotomayor\u0026#039;s dissent. \u0022Trying to \u0026#039;shame\u0026#039; some into voting her way? She never criticized Justice Ginsburg when she called me a \u0026#039;faker.\u0026#039;\u0022\u0022Both should recuse themselves on all Trump, or Trump related, matters!\u0022 the president added. \u0022While \u0026#039;elections have consequences,\u0026#039; I only ask for fairness, especially when it comes to decisions made by the United States Supreme Court!\u0022Trump doubled down on his demand during a press conference in India Tuesday morning, calling Sotomayor\u0026#039;s dissent \u0022innappropriate\u0022 and accusing Ginsburg of going \u0022wild\u0022 against him in the 2016 presidential election.Trump, during news conference in India, explains that he thinks Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg should recuse herself from cases involving him because she didn\u0026#039;t support him in 2016. He also calls on Justice Sotomayor to recuse herself for an unspecified \u0022inappropriate\u0022 statement. pic.twitter.com/fb0WqOXKvp— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) February 25, 2020\u0022This is outrageous,\u0022 Kristen Clarke, president and executive director of the Lawyers\u0026#039; Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, wrote in response to Trump\u0026#039;s tweets.\u0022Justice Sotomayor issued a reasoned dissent noting a pattern among the justices of allowing the Trump administration to ignore the appellate courts and skip to the SCOTUS to secure their desired outcome,\u0022 added Clarke. \u0022The slight to Ginsburg and call for recusal are absurd.\u0022Brian Fallon, executive director of court reform group Demand Justice, tweeted that \u0022Justice Sotomayor\u0026#039;s dissent is a call to action, and now Trump is attacking her for speaking the truth.\u0022Fallon said Demand Justice and other progressive groups are planning to protest conservative justices\u0026#039; \u0022pro-Trump bias\u0022 at the Supreme Court next week.
