Prof. Richard Painter Interviewed on NPR’s Here & Now About the Need for Justice Samuel Alito to Recuse Himself From Jan. 6-Related Cases

Professor Richard Painter was interviewed on NPR’s Here & Now about whether Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito should recuse himself from any Jan. 6 or Trump cases. The symbol of many insurrectionists, the upside down American flag, was flown outside of Alito’s home just after the storming of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. Prof. Painter, a former White House ethics lawyer under President George W. Bush, helped to prepare Justice Alito for Senate confirmation hearings in 2006.
