Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas facing calls to recuse himself over wife’s involvement with Jan 6th

Leftists often have rules for others that they don’t obey themselves. Such is the case for critics who claimed Ginni Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, has muddied the waters for her husband.

Critics claim that Ginni Thomas’ alleged involvement in the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol should preclude her husband from hearing cases at the high court, TheBlaze reported. Ginni Thomas has disputed those claims and renounced efforts to make Clarence Thomas recuse himself.

“Like so many married couples, we share many of the same ideals, principles, and aspirations for America,” she said during an interview with the Washington Free Beacon. “But we have our own separate careers, and our own ideas and opinions too. Clarence doesn’t discuss his work with me, and I don’t involve him in my work.”

Ginni Thomas has long been the target of critics because of her conservative activism. However, some are now saying the fact that she was at the rally that eventually led to the incursion will impact her husband’s ability to be impartial.

“I played no role with those who were planning and leading the Jan. 6 events,” Ginni Thomas told the news outlet. “There are stories in the press suggesting I paid or arranged for buses,” she continued.

“I did not. There are other stories saying I mediated feuding factions of leaders for that day. I did not,” Ginni Thomas said emphatically.

The left seems to have no issue when Democrat-appointed judges like Nina Pillard, who serves on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, having a high-profile, politically active spouse. Her husband, attorney David Cole, is the national legal director for the American Civil Liberties Union with nary a word from the left, Breitbart reported.

Ginni Thomas may have had some tacit involvement in Jan. 6, but that doesn’t mean she was involved in the unlawful aspects. The attempt to get Clarence Thomas to recuse himself is another way to get conservative opinions banned from the courtroom.
