A democratic and Republican senator are working together to gain access to Supreme Court justices’ travel documents as part of a larger ethics investigation into whether senior public officials need better transparency requirements.
Rhode Island Democratic Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse and Louisiana Republican Sen. John Kennedy sent a letter Friday to the Justice Department asking for the travel records all nine justices’ trips outside of Washington, D.C., since 2011, including where the trip was and the cost to taxpayers.
Whitehouse, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and Kennedy, a top Republican on that panel, said that senior government officials must disclose outside income, gifts and reimbursements on an annual basis to comply with the Ethics in Government Act of 1978 and Ethics Reform Act of 1989.
