Introduced in House (02/07/2017)

Expresses the sense of the House of Representatives that:

  • the legislative, executive, and judicial branches are co-equal;
  • an independent judiciary is fundamental to the checks and balances embodied by the separation of powers, is essential to maintaining respect for the rule of law, and is critical to our constitutional democracy;
  • attacks against the judiciary threaten to weaken public confidence in the courts; and
  • it is inappropriate for sitting Presidents or other government officials to engage in ad hominem attacks against a judge, to otherwise place political pressure designed to undermine the independence of that judge, or to erode trust in the court system.
