“his failure to disclose income from right-wing organizations, recuse himself from matters involving his wife, and his vote to block the Jan 6th commission from key information must be investigated and could serve as grounds for impeachment”
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is now calling on Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas to resign or be impeached.
This stems from the Democrat/media feeding frenzy over Thomas’ wife Ginni and her involvement with pro-Trump activists following the 2020 election.
John Kruzel writes at The Hill:
Ocasio-Cortez to Clarence Thomas: Resign or face impeachment
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Tuesday called on Justice Clarence Thomas to resign or face impeachment for what she depicted as a pattern of ethical breaches.
“Clarence Thomas should resign,” she wrote on Twitter. “If not, his failure to disclose income from right-wing organizations, recuse himself from matters involving his wife, and his vote to block the Jan 6th commission from key information must be investigated and could serve as grounds for impeachment.”
Ocasio-Cortez is just the latest in a series of Democratic lawmakers and legal experts to intensify ethical scrutiny of Thomas in the wake of explosive reports last week that exposed his wife’s aggressive efforts to help overturn former President Trump’s electoral defeat.
Those revelations raised fresh questions about the justice’s refusal to step aside from related cases before the Supreme Court, including at least 10 rulings concerning the 2020 presidential election, without any indication of him recusing.

Clarence Thomas should resign.
If not, his failure to disclose income from right-wing organizations, recuse himself from matters involving his wife, and his vote to block the Jan 6th commission from key information must be investigated and could serve as grounds for impeachment.

Chris Enloe of The Blaze sees three problems with AOC’s argument:
First, Ocasio-Cortez claims Thomas has failed “to disclose income from right-wing organizations.” But there is no substantive evidence showing that Thomas makes money from “right-wing organizations,” let alone evidence that he has failed to disclose such income.
Second, the Supreme Court has not heard a case involving his wife, thus Ocasio-Cortez’s assertion that Thomas has breached judicial ethics by participating in a court case from which he should have been recused is moot. If the Supreme Court had heard a case involving Thomas’ wife, he would have undoubtedly recused himself from the proceedings.
Finally, it is true that Thomas voted to block Trump-era White House documents from being turned over to the House committee investigating Jan. 6. Thomas’ critics point to his vote — and in fact, he was the lone dissenting vote — as evidence that he is compromised.
Stephen Miller makes two excellent points about this:
Every House Dem currently out campaigning for their seat should be asked if they agree with this. https://t.co/05aNWS9guD

These lunatics are going into a midterm election with record high inflation and their message is "impeach the black SCOTUS justice" and "we don't know what a woman is"
Please please do this. https://t.co/lBgkXXwJLI

AOC is one of the reasons Democrats are facing a red wave in November. If they continue down this path, they do so at their own peril.DONATE
