Lawmakers are informed by an advocate of “stealth” attempts to sway the Supreme Court.

Schenck recruited Christian couples to serve as “stealth missionaries” at the Supreme Court. His testimony was part of an effort by House Democrats to strengthen ethics rules for justices. Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, dismissed some of Schenck’s allegations as “fake”. Measure would require amicus briefs to disclose who funded and participated in drafting those briefs. It would also strengthen recusal requirements and require anyone filing an amicus brief to disclose details about who paid for it. A companion measure is awaiting action in the Senate; the House has not yet voted on it.
