Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is conservative and therefore has been in leftist crosshairs since his confirmation. A recent attack has reached a new low using his wife’s viewpoints against him.
Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-NJ) has called for Thomas to resign after it was revealed that wife Virginia “Ginni” Thomas emailed attorney John Eastman, The Hill reported. Although details of their conversation weren’t released, Pascrell believes the relationship with the Trump attorney is enough to call Thomas “a corrupt jurist.”
Eastman was instrumental in arguing former President Donald Trump’s points about possible fraud in the 2020 presidential election. Ginni Thomas’s casual connection sent Pascrell calling for the justice’s head.
“Over the last few years, we have become numb to bad acts by powerful actors, but Clarence and Ginni Thomas have participated in one of the worst breaches of trust ever seen in our court system,” Pascrell claimed in his statement. “Clarence Thomas cannot possibly be seen as a neutral actor but instead as a corrupt jurist who has poisoned the High Court.”
“Clarence Thomas should have dignity and final respect for our democracy and resign,” Pascrell charged. Both Thomas and his wife supported Trump during the time of the Jan. 6, 2021 incident at the U.S. Capitol and therefore are being targeted by bloodthirsty Democrats.
Pascrell claimed that the justice’s dissenting opinion in a case involving whether it was lawful to release White House records to the committee was enough to ensnare him. “Last night, 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 wrote.
“And while she was doing all this, her husband, Justice Thomas, was hearing litigation related to the 2020 election at the High Court,” he seethed. Pascrell is not the first but just the latest to call for his resignation, joining others like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).
Democrats can’t let go of Jan. 6 because they have nothing else. Thomas is a good man and a great justice — and that’s truly the reason he’s being targeted.
