Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.) has joined the call for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas to resign due to the communications of his wife, Virginia “Ginni” Thomas, with lawyer John Eastman supporting the certification challenge. It is still unclear what that email contains, but Ginni Thomas was a vocal supporter for former President Donald Trump in both public and private. Pascrell called Thomas “a corrupt jurist” and said that he could not be considered “neutral” given the fact that his wife is a political activist. Pascrell’s demand comes after Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse called for an investigation into the matter. The demand is entirely without legal or ethical merit absent new evidence that Justice Thomas himself engaged in political advocacy while ruling on related cases.
Rep. IIhan Omar (D., Minn.) was the first member of Congress to call for Thomas to be impeached when it was revealed that the Jan. 6th Commission found 29 messages of his wife, Ginni, to the White House. MSNBC’s Mehdi Hasan echoed the call for impeachment as did former Sen. Barbara Boxer and others. Boxer was particularly ironic since she used the same underlying federal law to challenge the certification of George W. Bush’s election, which was central in former President Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election.
As previously noted, the position of Ginni Thomas on the election was no surprise. She is a well-known Republican activist and Trump supporter. In her communications, Thomas encouraged then-White House chief of staff Mark Meadows to pursue legal and legislative challenges to what she viewed as a stolen election. That was a position supported by millions of voters.
We have come a long way from the days when spouses were viewed as mere extensions of their husbands. Ginni Thomas is an activist and the couple has often discussed how they keep their professional lives apart. Yet, these members are suggesting that Justice Thomas can be investigated or impeached because he essentially failed to keep his wife in line and silent on this national controversy.
Pascrell declared “Clarence and Ginni Thomas have participated in one of the worst breaches of trust ever seen in our court system. 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.”
The attack on Justice Thomas is grossly unfair and untrue. There was no breach of trust in our court system due to these challenges. The court system functioned exactly as it was intended. So did the other two branches. The high court has handed down at least 10 rulings on the 2020 election In January, Justice Thomas was notably the only dissenting justice. Being a minority of one does not make you corrupt. It is a position that virtually every justice has held at some point on the Court.
Justice Thomas did not write the email to Eastman. It was his wife who has a separate career. Justices are not expected to silence their spouses on political matters or associations. Nor are spouses expected to place their career or views on hold due to their husband or wife sitting on the Court.
Indeed, even justices have been accused of crossing the line on occasion. This includes justices on the left of the Court. I recently criticized Justice Sonia Sotomayor for encouraging law students to oppose new abortion laws. The late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg also drew such criticism. Despite repeated controversies in speaking publicly on political issues, Ginsburg was undeterred. Ginsburg continued such speeches in discussing issues like the ERA to the joy of liberals. Shortly before that, Ginsburg again repeated her view that sexist voters prevented Hillary Clinton from being elected president — a repeat of controversial comments in her 2017 speech. Again, the comments thrilled liberals. As in her 2017 speech, Ginsburg again repeated her view that sexist voters prevented Hillary Clinton from being elected president.
Justice Ginsburg started another firestorm over public comments on how she would move to New Zealand if Donald Trump was elected. Ginsburg apologized for that public controversy, though I discussed in a column how the incident spoke to a much larger problem on the Court.
These were political statements as opposed to direct involvement in advocacy. In this case, it is not Justice Thomas but his wife who was expressing support for certification and election challenges.
It is not clear if Pascrell has access to emails not seen by other members or the public. We know that Thomas texted with then-White House chief of staff Mark Meadows in the aftermath of the presidential election to encourage the White House to fight the certification. She said on Thursday “I look forward to talking to them,” adding, “I can’t wait to clear up misconceptions.”
Pascrell has long sought retaliatory actions against those who hold a different view on the 2020 election. He previously called for the disqualification of 120 House Republicans — including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) — for simply signing a “Friend of the Court brief” (or amicus brief) in support of an election challenge from Texas.
The attack on Justice Thomas for the advocacy of his wife is a race to the bottom by some Democrats. The Thomas’ have not received support from most law professors or legal experts in the media. Likewise, liberal feminist groups are silent in defense of a woman who maintains a separate career in Washington. Nevertheless, this attack is inflammatory and wrong. It does a disservice to the Court and the country in fueling a national rage addiction that is tearing us apart.

I hope Joe Biden’s bicycle is OK.
OMG – Putin just caused Joe Biden to fall off his bike -and yes, I’m laughing my azz off. 😂
Everything about President Joe Biden exudes weakness, from his stumbling on steps, stairs, with bike pedals, and not to mention his stumbling over simple facts, his word salads, etc. Then we watch his horrid wife interupting saying “we gotta go” and pulling on his arm, as the President of the United States is trying to answer press questions (which he usually avoids doing). Biden exudes weakness to the world. America has never been more unsafe, insecure, unstable due to Joe Biden’s failed policies, weakness and incompetence.
I heard “Jersey Bill” complaining loudly once that his likeness besides the word “dumb” in the dictionary was outrageous when the spot next to “dunce” was still open. Hope he got his way. Looks like he did.
Would you take me as a client in spite of the fact that I find you personally abhorrent?
The first cut is the deepest.
Those are the nagging lacerations of jealousy; you would, no doubt, benefit from, at least a modicum of, analysis.
Americans find Marxists like Democrats abhorrent, which is why Mayra Flores won in Texas against a staunch Democrat incumbent
This Tuesday, Mayra Flores (R) beat Dan Sanchez (D) 51%-43% to become the first Republican to win a congressional seat in that part of the valley in 150 years. She will also become the first congresswoman in the nation’s history to have been born in Mexico.
Flores, who is married to a Border Patrol agent and often wore a Border Patrol hat at her campaign events, ran a law-and-order campaign under the slogan “God, Family, Country.” In her campaign ads, she said the valley “is under attack,” adding that “we must secure our border and keep our families safe.”
Border security, admittedly, was not the only issue in the race. Flores’s ads also said, “Washington liberals are killing the American dream, attacking oil and gas, and causing prices to skyrocket.” Hispanics, like everyone else, identify “inflation” as their top issue and, also like everyone else, correctly blame Biden’s spending and environmental policies for causing inflation to rise to 40-year highs.

Can’t afford analysis. Would you guys kick-in to a GoFundMe if you are serious about my worsening TDS?
Absolutely, YES. A thousand times “yes!”
It is a pity that none of you Trumpists live in the Bay Area so that we could down a few shots as I try to talk some sense into you. Thankfully, you would not be able to carry a concealed firearm in California.
When did that ever stop a dedicated Trumper?
Okay, I like the Clock Bar at the St. Francis or Sotto Mare on Green and the Trattoria Contadina for some Carlesimo!
Thanks for the tips. I prefer to drink at dive bars with lots of character. It’s also alot cheaper.
Oh come on. Grow up. Sotto Mare is fabulous and the Carlesimo at TC is $22 bucks.
I don’t know about “trumpists”, but there are those in the Bay Area that are happy with most of what Trump did. I don’t think most of them are too happy today despite any type of feelings toward Trump. Are you that unaware of the people that live in close proximity?
“Trumpists” are those who believe that the election was rigged or otherwise stolen on account of massive voter fraud. I have never met someone face-to-face where I live who will state that lie out loud.
Do you think rigging an election never happens? It’s always a legitimate question because one wants our laws followed. I am sure you want that as well. Wouldn’t you always look to guarantee things are correct?
How would you know if a person from the Bay Area has a different opinion than you? It is not a small area, by size or population, even if you limit it to the San Fransisco Bay Area.
I find it difficult to believe that no one close to you would be a Trumpist (based on your definition), no matter how strongly affiliated they are to the Democratic Party. Maybe you can clarify what you are saying.
I am familiar with the area and its politics, but I can see why some are disturbed by this election. Just think of all the changes made because of Covid before voting started. That should make anyone believe that problems likely occurred even if they don’t think it altered the election.
I’m familiar with the Bay Area and think people there think more deeply than you give them credit. Yes, I know there is a strong, solid Democrat voice, but that doesn’t mean they don’t think.
Turley has expressed no belief that there was massive voter fraud. Barr, whose integrity he trusts implicitly, scoffs at the notion.
Why then should I believe it? It did not happen. Accept it.
Turley believes and trusts many others who believe massive voter fraud occurred. The question is not whether or not such voter fraud happened, it did, but whether we can competently show Biden lost. Biden is President. I think the evidence shows that Biden more likely lost the election, but to prove such facts requires us to do things that I believe are beyond our ability.
You might have a different opinion, but that shouldn’t matter because Biden will remain President. What matters is we clean up the election process with in person voting, voter ID, etc. There should be very few if any mail in ballots. Any irregularities caused by the voter should cancel the vote. We did this in Iraq where war had just occurred. We can do it here.
Get your retainer up front and make sure he doesn’t steal. Lock the bathrooms, but if you are too late doing so, call the cleanup crew. Make sure you have a room spray for when he leaves the room, then leave it lock it, and decontaminate it.
I can understand that even the worst people have a right to an attorney, so I admire you for allowing JS to be a client.
Did you know I represented the head of the Republican Party in Virginia and the comptroller of the Democratic Party in Virginia and then both parties said I have no shame. I only care about the legal questions I represent not who asks them..
No, I didn’t. That is the way it is supposed to be. The legal profession over-steps its bounds when they use the law in ways to politicize politics rather than assisting in making things run according to law. A good defense attorney will not willingly place his client on the witness stand to lie. A good doctor doesn’t use politics to decide how to treat a patient. A good teacher doesn’t indoctrinate their students.
What I see are people like JS who have no morality or ethical standards. JS gives himself and the people around him a bad name.
There is no shame when one is ethical and moral even if that deviates from the ethics and morality surrounding you.

Another Trumpist exclaims:
“Democrats today are by and large, God-less, evil mf’ers. They destroy everything they touch.”
Hey, Turley, you reading this hate? How is it that you so masterfully bring out the best in people?
I think truth is an absolute defense.
Your alternative facts are not truthful.
mespo727272 stated that he is a mouth for hire.
Well, to be fair, lawyers are. Turley often acts as if he were Fox’s lawyer as opposed to an impartial legal analyst. If he was hired to be a pseudo-lawyer for Fox, that would explain his defending Fox against attacks from its media competitors as well as his ignoring the same but more egregious faults at Fox which he dutifully points out in the MSM.
Again, we can’t hold him accountable because he is incommunicado.
Turley often acts as if he were Fox’s lawyer as opposed to an impartial legal
All you have to do is point out even one of our hosts, FOX apperances and point out were he got the low wrong.
But like a good little leftist, you parrot a talking point. You lack the intellect to engage with facts. That’s why all you do is ad hominem
I don’t think it’s professor Turkey that brings out the best or worst in people. TDS is an awful ailment to have.
Hey Jeff said:
“Another Trumpist exclaims:
“Democrats today are by and large, God-less, evil mf’ers. They destroy everything they touch.””
Yes, I stand by my words. Just one example. Rep. Adam Schiff is back on the “news” shows telling lie after lie after lie….yet AGAIN! It’s called propaganda. It’s called Fake News. Schiff is immoral, unethical, a sociopath, and a Pelosi “tool” doing her dirty work. Schiff lied about Russia collusion. Shiff coordinated with the “whistleblower” in Trump impeachment number 1…or was it number 2? Schiff spied on fellow Intel committee members and subpoenaed phone/bank records of private citizens. Schiff is a know liar who constantly leaks to the media. Any sane, rational person can see that Schiff is just one of the Godless and evil Democrat pols doing nothing but tearing apart this country, and destroying every institution, with every word uttered from his lips — all under the direction and approval of the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi. Yes, to repeat again: Democrats today are by and large Godless, evil, mf’ers destroying the country. Intentionally.
I just wish Turley could hear you say these unhinged accusations. I know my words mean nothing to you, but hopefully you’ll listen to him deny what you are saying.
He wouldn’t deny it, b/c it’s all true honey.
I’d bet my life that he would tell so.
Call the un truths out. Where’s the lie?
Did Schiff lie over and over on TV about Russia collusion? Yes.
Did Schiff surreptitiously “coordinate” with the whistleblower in the Trump impeachment? Yes.
Did Schiff actually spy on his fellow Intel Committee members? Yes.
Did Schiff subpoena the phone and bank records of PRIVATE citizens? Yes.
Did Schiff leak to the media over and over again? Yes.
Does Pelosi put him on committees to do her unethical dirty work (ie, promulgate lies, misinformation, disinformation, and leaks all over cable TV) with her full approval? Of course she did/does. Swallowell too.
Again, Jeffrey, where’s the lie?
You heard what I said. You and Turley do not agree on the basics:
Trump’s 1/6 speech was “reckless” with which you do not agree;
Turley called for Trump’s Congressional censure which you obviously opposed;
And you bitterly resent his dismissing Trump as a liar, or to use his humorous description of the same, “carnival snake charmer.”
I’d bet my life that Turley would disagree with your opinion of Democrats just as he disagrees with your opinion of Trump.
Hello? One ringy dingy?
I thought we were debating my “unhinged accusations” listed above, that I then laid out, one by one, for you to address as “un-truths.”
Then you come back with this?
Yes, because it demonstrates how far apart Turley and I see things compared to Trumpists.
When it comes to civil liberties Turley and most of the people on this blog are in tune. You are not.
How many lives do you have left? I mean, really.
“I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol
building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.” DJT
I CYA line which did too little to stem
the months of lies and rage which Trump had been infusing into his followers. Despite this one throwaway disclaimer, Turley called his speech “reckless” notwithstanding. Trump could have stated more emphatically and repeatedly that violence would not be tolerated. Had he done so, the storming of the Capitol may not have happened.
Sorry but no.
Chuck Schumer is out there shouting “We’re coming for you!” threatening justices by name, screaming “You won’t know what hit you”….and nothing happens to Schumer? The fake news barely reports on it.
Schumer let it be known what they wanted and then some crazies get the message and act on it, like the guy who drove across the country one week ago with his weapons and a plan to assassinate Justice Kavanaugh.
Why is Chuck Schumer not charged with incitement to violence? He and his fellow Democrats are literally driving their people to violence. They are becoming truly dangerous now. Their followers are succeptible to their messages, and some will act on it, as we have already seen!
Then there is almost no reporting on what actually took place with the attempted assassination of a supreme court justice! Dems and their media are downplaying the seriousness of all that is happening. Because they want it to happen.
Then AG Merrick Garland refuses to enforce the federal law that says you cannot protest, threaten or intimidate a justice, a federal judge, at their family home with the intent to intimidate them on pending cases! But Garland allows the lawlessness to continue.
Another MSNBC-watching lefty lunatic was ‘driven to violence’ by Democrat rhetoric when he drove from another state and went to a baseball field outside Washington DC with a plan to shoot and kill a bunch of Republicans and almost succeeded. That was in 2017.
Again, most are unaware of this kind of violence coming from left wing crazies who are being driven to anger and rage by Dems because their propaganda media won’t report on it and always downplay all of it.
The Democrat politicians of today, and their reckless minions/media/dupes/useful idiots are, by and large, dangerous, immoral, unethical, evil, political whores hell bent on destroying everything around them.
They are the ones instigating and driving people to violence. You cannot prove my statement wrong because it is true.
Turley believes in propriety and leans left. He will criticize any actions that do not co-exist with the table manners he sets at his own table. He thinks a lot worse of the civility abuses by Jeff Silberman. He disagrees with most of the civil rights abuses seen coming from the Democratic Party and has stated their dangers.
Jeff has a problem. He has no mind of his own, so he will agree with Turley when Turley says something bad about the opposition but will attack Turley when Turley says the same things against Democrats. Jeff is a lost creature and is always smelling his own backside.
Hypocrite is Jeff’s middle name.
Call the un-truths out, Jeffrey. I’ll wait.
What part of the remark do you take issue with ?
I am sure that not all democrats are atheists. But certainly many are. Regardless, few seem to take religion or the ethics and morality that often come from it seriously.
Or do you take issue with the statement “they destroy everything they touch” – maybe a bit hyperbolic – but still a pretty good approximation of reality.
“Evil Mf’ers” that must be it ? Given the number of times I am accused of being mentally ill or in myriads of other ways disparaged.
I have had leftists insult my family – or use my family to try to insult me. So Turn about is fair play.
Regardless, what was posted that was more “hateful” than what you post all the time ?
There is no way Clarence Thomas will resign. Firstly, there is nothing whatsoever to warrant resignation. Secondly, anyone who has read anything he has written about his life knows the steel within; he will not be pushed around by anyone.
At the time of his appointment, I was skeptical about his qualifications. The quality and originality of his opinions over the years have proved me wrong. Long may he serve!
“Communists Democrats at war. Keep pushing. I think the cold civil war is going hot this summer.
At some point We the People will have had enough communism.”
More of the same rage. What would Turley say to him if he stood up in his classroom to shout this out?
And yet – who is committing the actual violence ?
Arson at pro-life clinics – with leftists admitting responsibility.
It is a crime for the proud boys to occupy the capital – but not for left wing nuts to plan a summer of rage ?
“Time for Republicans to Remove All Bi-Partisans RINOS….Democrats want Civil War…lets give it to them!”
Turley’s *good speech* condemning our “age of rage” has had little to no effect on the Trumpists here. Turley needs to redouble his efforts to calm the hotheads which gather around him.
Are there some Trumpists out there actually trying to assassinate Rino’s ?
There are obviously democrats trying to assassinate supreme court justices.
If you are going to blame speech for violence – you have a problem – nearly all political violence in this country is from the left.
We are now at 50 pro-life clinics that leftists have ADMITTED to attacking, frequently arson.
Aparently “Trumpists” are not the moron’s that leftists are – they understand that “hunting Rino’s” means VOTING THEM OUT.
Not Assassinating them.
Charles Dickens answers Mr. Pascrell:
“It was all Mrs. Bumble. She would do it,” urged Mr. Bumble; first looking round, to ascertain that his partner had left the room.
That is no excuse,” returned Mr. Brownlow. “You were present on the occasion of the destruction of these trinkets, and, indeed, are the more guilty of the two, in the eye of the law; for the law supposes that your wife acts under your direction.”
If the law supposes that,” said Mr. Bumble, squeezing his hat emphatically in both hands, “the law is a ass — a idiot. If that’s the eye of the law, the law is a bachelor; and the worst I wish the law is, that his eye may be opened by experience — by experience.”
“Bachelors know more about women than married men; if they didn’t they’d be married too.”
“Clarence Thomas should have dignity and final respect for our democracy and resign.”
– Bill Pascrell
Bill Pascrell’s “democracy” is the anti-American communist “dictatorship of the proletariat” – the unconstitutional War on Poverty, the unconstitutional Great Society, the unconstitutional Great American Welfare State.
Ben Franklin’s [restricted-vote] “republic” was of the severely-limited-constrained-government-maximally-free-citizens variety.
Everything Pascrell and the communists (liberals, progressives, socialists, democrats, RINOs) in America have imposed on American taxpayers is unconstitutional.
The American thesis is Freedom and Self-Reliance, not “from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs,” central planning, control of the means of production, redistribution of wealth, or social engineering.
By imposing the principles of communism on America, the communists (liberals, progressives, socialists, democrats, RINOs) have all committed treason and “levied War against them [the United States and Constitution], or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.”
Bill Pascrell’s “democracy,” the entire communistic American welfare state, is unconstitutional including, but not limited to, matriculation affirmative action, grade-inflation affirmative action, employment affirmative action, quotas, welfare, food stamps, minimum wage, rent control, social services, forced busing, public housing, utility subsidies, WIC, SNAP, TANF, HAMP, HARP, TARP, HHS, HUD, NLRB, Agriculture, Commerce, Education, Labor, Energy, Obamacare, Social Security, Social Security Disability, Social Security Supplemental Income, Medicare, Medicaid, “Fair Housing” laws, “Non-Discrimination” laws, etc.
Article 1, Section 8, provides Congress the power to tax ONLY for debt, for the common defense, and for the “…general Welfare…,” or infrastructure, omitting and, thereby, excluding any power to tax for individual welfare, specific welfare, particular welfare, favor or charity. The same article provides Congress the power to regulate ONLY money, the “flow” of commerce, and land and naval Forces. Additionally, the 5th Amendment right to private property is not qualified by the Constitution and is, therefore, absolute, allowing Congress no power to “claim or exercise” dominion over private property, the sole exception being the power to “take” private property for public use.
Government exists, under the Constitution and Bill of Rights, to provide maximal freedom to individuals, while it is severely limited and restricted to merely facilitating that maximal freedom of individuals, through only the provision of security and infrastructure.
The Historic Inflection Point: Abraham Lincoln ended American freedom, nullified the rights and freedoms of the Constitution, and initiated the unconstitutional incremental implementation of the principles of communism when he undertook his steps toward “…the RECONSTRUCTION of a social world…,” effectively under orders from Karl Marx who congratulated and commended Lincoln for his efforts in Marx’s letter of 1864, beginning with the mass illegal immigration of 4 million illegal aliens per illicit and unconstitutional “RECONSTRUCTION Amendments,” of whom immigration law required compassionate repatriation.
Lincoln adopts Karl Marx’s pejorative, “capitalists,” and anti-free enterprise position in 1837:
“These capitalists generally act harmoniously and in concert, to fleece the people.”
– Abraham Lincoln, from his first speech as an Illinois state legislator, 1837
“Everyone now is more or less a Socialist.”
– Charles Dana, managing editor of the New York Tribune, and Lincoln’s assistant secretary of war, 1848
“The goal of Socialism is Communism.”
– Vladimir Ilyich Lenin
“The workingmen of Europe feel sure that, as the American War of Independence initiated a new era of ascendancy for the middle class, so the American Antislavery War will do for the working classes. They consider it an earnest of the epoch to come that it fell to the lot of Abraham Lincoln, the single-minded son of the working class, to lead his country through the matchless struggle for the rescue of an enchained race and the RECONSTRUCTION of a social world.”
– Karl Marx and the First International Workingmen’s Association to Lincoln, 1864

Ginny is using her husband’s status to do what she is going. So yes, this absolutely involves him and he needs to resign.
Sam tells us that Clarence Thomas’s wife should have no autonomy. Sounds like an ancient religious requirement that remains in Sam’s religion. Get her to a nunnery Sam declares.
Cue Hillary Clinton baking cookies:
In response to accusations that Bill Clinton steered favorable contracts to Hillary Clinton’s law firm as governor of Arkansas, Clinton explained (video) to a hounding press that she had ambitions outside the traditional role of first lady and wife:
I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas, but what I decided to do was to fulfill my profession, which I entered before my husband was in public life.
The comment provoked a firestorm of backlash, as expressed in letters to Time Magazine in 1992:
“If I ever entertained the idea of voting for Bill Clinton, the smug b!tchiness of his wife’s comment has nipped that notion in the bud.” Then add the annoyance of homemakers like Cindy Berg of La Crosse, Wis.: “I resent the implication that those of us who stay at home just bake cookies. We hardly have the time!”
Ginny is not autonomous by her own choice. She used her husbands contacts to try to plan a coup. If she was doing this about his contacts then it would be different. He can’t help her plan a coup and not be in any way responsible for it.
Sammy You should get over that AC inversion.
“Ginny is using her husband’s status to do what she is going.”
So What ?
As has Michelle Obama, and Jill Biden, and myriads of women married to powerful men, and sometimes even the reverse.
“So yes, this absolutely involves him and he needs to resign.”
If Ginni Thomas assassinated Biden – Clarence Thomas would not be obligated to resign.
Jonathan: This post and the one before are a feeble attempt to defend Clarence and Ginni Thomas. Clarence and his wife are joined at the hip when it comes to their political views. Both support Trump’s false claim of a “rigged” 2020 election. Clarence’s role is to provide judicial support for Trump. Ginni does it on the political front. Clarence was the sole dissenting vote back in January when the SC ruled (8-1) that Trump could not assert “executive privilege” to prevent turning over WH docs to the Jan. 6 Committee. It’s revealing that Thomas did not publish his dissent. There were 3 other election-related cases that came before the SC in which his wife was actively involved. Thomas should have recused himself but he refused. Another reason why the SC needs a code of conduct.
When it comes to Ginni Thomas let’s try to unwrap some of your unsupportable claims. You repeat your claim that Ginni only encouraged Mark Meadows to “pursue legal and legislative challenges”. That’s a gross distortion of what Ginni was engaged in just after the election. She sent emails to at least 29 GOP lawmakers in Arizona pressing them to overturn the Biden victory–despite several recounts that confirmed Biden’s victory. Ginni’s actions were illegal.
It’s ludicrous for you to argue Ginni and Clarence Thomas “keep their professional lives apart”. That defies logic and the evidence. At the end of your post you say: “The attack on Justice Thomas for the advocacy of his wife [ an admission that they intertwined in their political views and activities] is a race to the bottom by some Democrats”. The real “race to the bottom” is Clarence Thomas who has almost singlehandedly destroyed the reputation of the Court in the minds of a lot of Americans that think the Court has become too “political”. That why, for the good of the SC, Thomas should resign and his wife needs to be prosecuted.
Thomas should stay. Roberts should resign. Anyone would be an improvement over Roberts.
For the good of the court, Thomas should be made Chief Justice and Roberts should resign.
Dear Dennis McIntyre, does your wife listen to you when you tell her what to say. More than likely her response would be , “What you talkin about fool.” Maybe you should be impeached from your job because your wife has her own opinions that may conflict with her bosses opinions. You should research the term fair handed dealing. You should then tell your wife not to have an opinion on anything so that you can receive another dose of “What you talkin about fool.” You deserve it.
More leftist mind reading. Are your clairvoyant ?
Regardless, If Gini Thomas has her had up Clarences but and the words from his mouth are hers – you STILL have no argument.
If GINI had been a progressive woman married to a conservative justice – you would be begging her to freeze him out in the bedroom until he changed his vote – and you would have no problem with that.
Whether you like it the opposite is also true.
Can you make ANY argument that is something beyond – “I do not like the outcome – therefore it is wrong, illegal or unconstitutional” ?
Hillary proven to have started and pushed the Russia Russia Russia overthrow and nothing done. These same people part of the attempt to overthrow and right back with this BS, what hypocrites.
The Republicans better stay vigilant for the coming election, the Democrats are capable of everything/anything and will not stop until they are removed from office.
The people voted for Trump and the Democrats said the election was stolen.
Kemp beat Stacey Abrams by 50,000 votes (IN ONE STATE) and the Dems said the election was stolen.
The Dems impeached Trump twice, once without an investigation and after he was out of office.

Last, but not least, the Dems want to install a “Disinformation Board” under the auspices of Homeland Security, ban conservatives from social media, boycott Fox News and cry that they are in danger from a SITTING SENATOR’S column in the NY Times.

“The Dems pushed the Russian collusion hoax that was promulgated by their candidate for president.”
They corrupted the FBI.
When Democrats whine about “losing our Democracy” they are referring to their party losing elections and ceding majority power to Republicans. Which to most people actually means, our Democracy is working as it should.
