-

Critics are calling for a justice to recuse himself from two cases involving former President , asserting that failing to do so will cause “irreparable damage” to the Court.

On Wednesday, The Times reported that another Jan. 6-aligned flag was seen flying at one of Justice 's residences, this time at his New Jersey vacation home. Last week, the paper published a report detailing how an upside-down American flag flew at the Alitos' Northern home days after the U.S. Capitol riot.

In light of recent developments, some of the most vocal critics of Trump, such as Rep. Dan Goldman (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), are calling for Justice Alito to recuse himself from the landmark Trump presidential immunity case. They are also requesting his recusal from a case involving a former Pennsylvania police officer and Jan. 6 participant, specifically regarding whether obstruction charges against him should stand.
