: Chief Justice Roberts invited to testify in Senate after Clarence Thomas ethics controversy


The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday invited Chief Justice John Roberts to testify before the panel next month about ethics and the Supreme Court. The invitation by Sen. Dick Durbin, an Illinois Democrat, comes in the wake of revelations about Justice Clarence Thomas accepting luxury trips paid for by a Republican megadonor. “The time has come for a new public conversation on ways to restore confidence in the court’s ethical standards. I invite you to join it, and I look forward to your response,” Durbin wrote to Roberts. A hearing is planned for May 2.
