Fresh call to impeach Clarence Thomas after latest ruling on Jan. 6 insurrection
A long-standing call for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas to face impeachment proceedings was renewed Monday after the right-wing judge indicated in an unsigned dissent that he would have blocked enforcement of the House January 6 panel's subpoena for the communications records of Arizona ...

The House committee investigating the deadly January 6 insurrection "is seeking Ward's records related to her role in former President Donald Trump's effort to steal the 2020 election as a fake elector casting ballots in the Electoral College for Trump," HuffPostreported.

In a 7-2 vote, the Supreme Court on Monday paved the way for the panel to obtain Ward's phone records, rejecting the Arizona GOP chair's appeal. Right-wing Justice Samuel Alito joined Thomas in dissenting.

This marked the second time Thomas has tried to hinder the committee's probe of the Trump-led effort to remain in office despite his 2020 election loss—a plot in which Thomas' wife, right-wing activist Ginni Thomas, played a major role.

Thomas in January was the only justice to vote against the release of White House records to the panel. Two months later, text messages between former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows and Ginni Thomas showed that she had been in communication with Trump's team about efforts to overturn President Joe Biden's electoral victory.

Weeks later, it was revealed that Ginni Thomas had lobbied Republican lawmakers in Arizona and other states to reject Biden's electors and appoint fake ones who would support Trump. Since late March, congressional Democrats have called on Clarence Thomas to recuse himself, resign, or be impeached for apparently trying to shield his wife's anti-democratic political activities from scrutiny.

"His wife, Ginni Thomas, pressured Arizona officials to illegally overturn Trump's loss," Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), a D.C.-based watchdog, noted Monday. "It's absurd that Thomas did not recuse."

"Justice Thomas must face an impeachment inquiry," the pro-democracy advocacy group Free Speech for People tweeted.

A petition calling for the impeachment of Clarence Thomas has garnered more than 1.2 million signatures since details about Ginni Thomas' direct participation in Trump's failed coup were first made public.

Thomas should have recused himself from any case related to Jan 6. 

The idea that he has not discussed these things with his traitorous wife is not believable.

Did Thomas have any involvement with Jan 6th? Did he participate in any of the planning? Was he there? Has he ever stated his views on the election, voting, or anything involving Trump's attempts at trying to overturn the election? The answer is no to all of the above. So outside of your TDS driven imaginations do you have any proof that Thomas was involved? Outside of the fact his wife is MAGA that is; and had correspondence with people in the Trump administration. They didn't really seem to listen to her did they?

Since all impeachments start in the House Democrats will be massively SOL when it comes to starting this one.

It won't happen.  There's enough business for the current Congress to complete before their session ends in January that they won't have time to start this inquiry.

Your link doesn't even try to hide it's moronic bias.  It makes no justification for Justice Thomas to recuse himself.  Just provided a list of what the blogger author THINKS he should recuse himself from.

3.1.1 This is the portion of your comment I replied to, Ronin2. Whatever else you wrote did not SURVIVE review. Therefore, I have no idea what the "h" you are going on about as it appears to me to be you 'moving the goalpost'!

Justice Jackson, the newest justice, democratic-president appointed has recused herself! I have COMPLETELY FULFILLED your question:

Growth and development is called for-not everything fits your screeds and "protectionist" constructs. One thing I don't have for Trump is any obsession; because that would mean I need him in my mind and in my life. What I want for Donald is him to go far, far, away from me. For that guy is a walking political nightmare that is literally getting people killed and nearly killed in the real world.  Trump is trash to me.

I agree. Since he can't be bothered to offer a REASONABLE explanation for his decision (and now has a 'side-kick' in Alito) he should be 'inquiried.' This is the same justice-Thomas-who sends our buzzwords about substantive due processes for and against citizens not related to him and their rights and liberties. Now he has twiced attempted special pleading for himself and his WOMAN.

Ahh, the wordsmithing that goes on between media outlets and journalists and it is a both sides problem is sickening discourse. We owe it to ourselves to break out of silo mentalities and see reality outside of partisan interests. Truth is outside of these human silos; get out and let it rain down upon us!

Clarence refuses to cross ginni. Last time he didn't do what he was told, she refused to pluck his ingrown pubes to place in inconspicuous places.

We give these men and women justices so much as a nation anyway. Why be corrupt? Why be partisan? Shifty? Shady? It just defies logic, that in a job where legal impeccability is the standard, some of these men and women can be so blatantly and plainly flawed!  Justice Thomas can readily and handily see that he is negatively affecting the reputation and public standing—maybe even the world's view of what a supreme court should be and yet he takes little to any of this recusal concern involving his wife to heart. I mean, it's his wife for crying out loud.

How is it that she would involve herself in anything that would discredit or question her own husband's integrity? Inquiring minds could really, really, use an answer!
