Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is facing increased pressure to resign after the House January 6th Committee finally requested an interview with his wife Ginni Thomas about her seditious efforts to overturn the 2020 Election.
Ginni Thomas communicated with disgraced attorney John Eastman, a key Trump ally who pushed the fake elector scheme to keep Donald Trump in the White House despite President Joe Biden rightfully winning the popular and electoral vote count by wide margins. Eastman was also instrumental in Trump’s decision to pressure former Vice President Mike Pence into refusing to certify the election and to declare Trump the winner even though such a scheme is illegal. Thankfully, Pence refused to bow down to the pressure.
Thomas’ involvement is especially scandalous since her husband sits on the Supreme Court. And Clarence Thomas did not recuse himself from a case to decide if Trump had to hand over documents to the committee. In fact, Clarence Thomas ended up being the only vote in favor of allowing Trump to continue refusing to cooperate with the investigation and complying with a congressional subpoena. The other eight Justices rejected Trump’s arguments.
Again, this is incredibly shady because Thomas should have recused himself. After all, his wife was directly involved in the scheme to keep Trump in power, the scheme to overthrow democracy.
As more evidence of her involvement comes to light, Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.) is calling for Clarence Thomas to resign.
“Clarence Thomas cannot possibly be seen as a neutral actor but instead as a corrupt jurist who has poisoned the high court,” Pascrell said according to a report. “Clarence Thomas should have dignity and final respect for our democracy and resign.”
“We read yet more reports that the wife of the longest-serving justice on the Supreme Court was actively conspiring with Donald Trump and his allies to overturn the election and overthrow American democracy,” Pascrell continued. “And while she was doing all this, her husband, Justice Thomas, was hearing litigation related to the 2020 election at the high court.”
Clarence Thomas already had no credibility as a Justice. His wife’s involvement in the plot to overthrow democracy and his refusal to recuse himself from cases makes it clear that he’s a threat to the Constitution and should not be allowed to serve one day more on the bench.
