The liberal smear mob has their sights set on Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
Now they are trying to use the law to go after Thomas.
And Democrats want to kick Clarence Thomas off the Supreme Court using this little-known law.
The January 6 committee leaked text messages form Clarence Thomas’ wife Ginni to President Trump’s chief of staff Mark Meadows after the 2020 election.
Ginni Thomas expressed her belief that the election was stolen from President Trump.
“Help This Great President stand firm, Mark!!!…You are the leader, with him, who is standing for America’s constitutional governance at the precipice. The majority knows Biden and the Left is attempting the greatest Heist of our History,” Thomas declared.
Thomas also offered a number of theories to how Democrats stole the election and urged the President to fight the results.
Democrats seized on these messages and claimed Justice Thomas is now in violation of “28 U.S. Code § 455 – Disqualification of justice, judge, or magistrate judge.”
The law stated that “any justice, judge or magistrate judge of the United States shall disqualify himself in any proceeding in which his impartiality might reasonably be questioned.”
“By writing to Meadows, who was chief of staff and active in the ‘Stop the Steal’ movement, she joined the team resisting the results of the election,” he said. “She made herself part of the team and so she has an interest in the decisions of the court that could affect Trump’s goal of reversing the results.”
New York University Legal Ethics Professor Stephen Gillers claimed Justice Thomas needed to know what activism his wife engaged in after the election and that by not doing so Justice Thomas supposedly violated the law.
“He had an obligation to ask her what she’s doing,” Gillers told the New York Times. “He cannot close his ears and pretend that he’s ignorant. Conscious avoidance of knowledge is knowledge.”
The Supreme Court leaves recusal up to its own members.
Chief Justice John Roberts laid out this policy back in 2011.
“The Supreme Court does not sit in judgment of one of its own members’ decision whether to recuse in the course of deciding a case,” Roberts stated. “Indeed, if the Supreme Court reviewed those decisions, it would create an undesirable situation in which the court could affect the outcome of a case by selecting who among its members may participate.”
Democrats want to either force Clarence Thomas to recuse himself from any January 6 case or discredit the upcoming Supreme Court decisions on abortion, the Second Amendment and affirmative action.
Liberals know they are going to lose these cases so the left wants to claim the decisions are illegitimate due to Justice Thomas being supposedly “compromised” by his wife.
That’s a lie.
But it is a lie that the corporate media will gladly repeat.
