Chief Justice John Roberts Blasts 'Inappropriate Political Influence' in Year-end Report


Chief Justice John Roberts of the U.S. Supreme Court blasted attempts to exert “inappropriate political influence” in his year-end report for 2021, as President Joe Biden and the Democrats consider proposals to expand or pack the Court with liberals.

“The Judiciary’s power to manage its internal affairs insulates courts from inappropriate political influence and is crucial to preserving public trust in its work as a separate and co- equal branch of government,” Roberts said in the 2021 report.

Roberts has defended the independence of the judiciary in the past, notably in 2020, when then-Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) threatened justices that they “will pay the price” if they rule against abortion.
