( – CPAC is urging the Senate and House to investigate the “sabotage” of the Supreme Court.

On Tuesday, the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) sent a letter to Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina), member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, requesting that they open a congressional investigation in Supreme Court “sabotage.”

They point to increased media scrutiny of Supreme Court Justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas.

Alito has become the subject of scathing media reports that detail a dispute the Justice had with his liberal neighbors in 2021. Thomas has been subjected to harsh reports and critical questions about his judicial decisions, with the media increasing its reporting of gifts Thomas received from Harlan Crow, a Republican donor and billionaire.

Speaking to the Daily Caller, Matt Schlapp, Chairman of CPAC, noted that the organization had become increasingly frustrated with the “orchestrated attack… on constitutionalists on the Supreme Court.”

Schlapp added that these attacks are “especially unAmerican,” given they’re targeting the Justices for “political and religious beliefs” exhibited by their spouses.

Schlapp revealed that CPAC would incorporate into its mission “defending those illegitimately and cruelly attacked,” adding that Republicans in Congress must use their authority to uncover “who is behind this assault” of the predominantly conservative Justices.

Matthew Whitaker, former acting U.S. Attorney General, also voiced his opinion that “Congress should investigate” the “progressive left and their media allies” who are attempting to “intimidate” Alito by targeting his wife for “flying a flag.”

Whitaker noted the media attacks are “part of a coordinated effort” to pressure the conservative appointees on the bench “in high profile cases.”
