Democrats have their knives out for conservative Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
But the Democrats’ anger is leading them to make mistakes.
And what Nancy Pelosi just said about Clarence Thomas instantly blew up in her face.
The January 6 Committee tried to smear Clarence Thomas and delegitimize upcoming Supreme Court decisions expanding gun rights and rolling back – or even overturning – Roe v. Wade by releasing text messages from his wife Ginni to President Trump’s Chief-of-Staff Mark Meadows.
In these messages, Ginni Thomas implored Meadows and President Trump to contest the results of the 2020 election.
That led to Democrats like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to demand Justice Thomas resign or face impeachment since he participated in 2020 election cases.
“Clarence Thomas should resign,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote on social media in response to the January 6 Committee leaking Ginni Thomas’ text messages. “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.”
Reporters pressed Nancy Pelosi on this point at her weekly press conference.
“Do you agree with members of your caucus that Clarence Thomas should resign?” one reporter asked.
Pelosi then showed she forgot how the Constitution works and falsely claimed Justice Thomas was appointed to the Supreme Court.
“I don’t think he should’ve ever been appointed,” Pelosi answered.
Of course, Supreme Court Justices are not appointed.
They are confirmed by the Senate.
Pelosi then railed about the fact that the recusal decision is left up to the Supreme Court Justices.
“The Supreme Court has to at least have a code of ethics,” Pelosi added. “Why should they have lower standards than members of Congress in terms of reporting and the rest?”
Democrats latched on to an absurd new theory that Justice Thomas should recuse himself from politically charged cases due to the fact that his wife is a prominent conservative activist.
Pelosi then whined that “it’s a personal decision of a judge as to whether he should recuse himself,” before adding that “if your wife is an admitted and proud contributor to a coup of our country, maybe you should weigh that in your ethical standards.”
