Article III Project Statement on Senate Judiciary Committee Hearing on Judicial Ethics

WASHINGTON — Mike Davis, Founder and President of the Article III Project, issued the following statement after the Senate Judiciary Committee held a hyperpartisan hearing on judicial ethics and reform around it.

“This sham hearing on Supreme Court ‘ethics’ massively backfired. Democrats’ talking points crumbled under even the most basic of scrutiny. This manufactured so-called scandal is an obvious attempt by progressives to undermine and destroy the legitimacy of the Court as revenge for its recent originalist rulings. Instead of making up problems with the Supreme Court, Congress should focus on passing a modernized ethics law for itself.”

The Article III Project (A3P) was founded by veteran GOP operative and attorney Mike Davis, who, after helping win the Senate confirmation battles of Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, developed the reputation as a “take-no-prisoners conservative eager to challenge the left with hardball tactics,” as reported in The New York Times.

A3P defends constitutionalist judges, punches back on radical assaults on judicial independence (like court-packing) and opposes judicial and other nominees who are outside of the mainstream. Davis previously served as Chief Counsel for Nominations to Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) on the United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary and led the Senate confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh and a record number of circuit court judges.
