Democrats in Congress do not have the power to subpoena wealthy benefactors of Supreme Court justices. However, some Democratic lawmakers have called for further investigations into possible conflicts of interest among Supreme Court justices due to payments they have received from well-funded organizations same idea as organizations whose cases they have heard in their court. The exact motives behind these payments are yet to be determined, but some Democratic lawmakers believe that the benefactors could be attempting to buy influence. This could be done by donating to the justices directly or providing support for political causes which they endorse. However, without subpoena power, it is unlikely that Congress will be able to demand the disclosure of any payments or see the documents related to them.
