The political climate in the United States is at a boiling point, and that cannot be more evident than with the Democrats’ recent plan to subpoena wealthy benefactors who have supported the Supreme Court justices. This move, although largely seen as controversial, is being seen as a way to gain insight into why these ultra-wealthy individuals continue to show public support towards justices who have strongly argued in favor of pro-conservative legislation. The reasoning for this proposed subpoena has been seen by some as an effort to “even the playing field” and prevent the Supreme Court from becoming too biased towards one side of the political aisle. The wealthy individuals who have donated large sums of money and resources to those appointed on the Supreme Court have been rumored to be the main contributor to possible bias within the court. By effectively subpoenaing the rich donors of the Supreme Court, the Democrats hope to uncover the potential financial reasons and motivations behind each justice’s actions and decisions. This subpoena will not only further probe into the legitimacy of the Supreme Court’s decisions, but it will also open up a can of worms that could reveal a great deal of corruption and abuse of power. If the wealthy donors of the Supreme Court are found to have acted in a corrupt manner, then this information could potentially sway public opinion and serve as evidence to push for reforms in the judicial system. Ultimately, this proposed subpoena could open the door to more democracy throughout the United States. The proposed subpoena has received a considerable amount of backlash from Republicans who believe it to be a waste of time and resources. Their counter argument is that the Supreme Court justices are appointed based on their merits and abilities, not their donors. Whether or not the subpoena is approved, the Democrats’ plan to investigate the wealthy benefactors of the Supreme Court justices is a move that further highlights a growing divide in American politics. This investigation could very well uncover important information about the motivations and backgrounds of the Supreme Court justices, but the effects it may unleash could be more dangerous than some may expect.
