FIRST: The Washington Post and CBS News reported that Ginni Thomas, wife of Justice Clarence Thomas, urged the Trump White House to overturn the results of the 2020 election!
SO: Senator Amy Klobuchar is calling on Justice Thomas to recuse himself from any cases related to the 2020 election – calling it a “textbook case” of a conflict of interest.
BUT: Republicans are defending Justice Thomas, claiming there’s no need for recusal!
The Supreme Court does not have any formal ethics rules regarding when a Justice should recuse themselves, so we’re polling local Democrats to see where they stand on Justice Thomas’s potential conflict of interest.
This is really serious. Ginni Thomas’ texts to Trump’s chief of staff clearly show her urging the White House to overturn the 2020 election results.
And right now, some insurrectionists and Trump cronies involved in the events of January 6th are in ongoing legal battles across the country – legal battles that could advance to the Supreme Court!
But there is no ethics requirement for when Supreme Court Justices should recuse themselves, so we need your input today.
