Some states have special courts to review misconduct by judges, up to and including the state supreme court justices.

That's how Roy Moore was fired, twice, as Chief Justice of Alabama. He broke the law, the AL Court of the Judiciary stepped in.

Why can't SCOTUS use that model?
I mean, I don't think such an system would be any threat to the separation of powers as long as the hypothetical "United States Court of the Judiciary" was itself an Article III court.
We don't even have to give such a court the power to actually remove justices from office (which would be a lot more constitutionally and politically fraught).

We could just give them the power to convene between cert and oral argument and rule whether a justice should recuse.
