Welcome to Fox News’ Politics newsletter with the latest political news from Washington D.C. and updates from the 2024 campaign trail. 

The top Democrat in the House believes Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito is “insurrectionist sympathizer” due to the flag that flew in front of his property in 2021.

“It appears that Justice Alito is an insurrectionist-sympathizer, joined by his right-wing buddy Clarence Thomas,” House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries said at a press conference Friday.

Alito and his wife, Martha-Ann, continue to come under fire for previously flying the “Appeal to Heaven” flag, which features a pine tree on a white background. The flag was common in the Revolutionary War, but lately has become associated with extremism because it was flown by rioters who stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.

When asked about criticisms of Justices Alito and Clarence Thomas, Jeffries told Fox News’ Chad Pergram that “the American people almost uniformly agree that the right-wing justices on the Supreme Court are completely and totally out of control.”

Jeffries also commented that the high bench cannot police itself when it comes to ethics and that there have been significantly moreaggressively partisan, right wing, extreme decisions” since Trump nominated a trio of justices.
