Justice Clarence Thomas is back on the bench, much to the dismay of many Democrats, a few days after he was released from the hospital following treatment for an infection. Thomas participated in oral arguments remotely but the calls for him to resign, be impeached, or recuse himself in cases before the court persists from the left.
Chief Justice John Roberts announced Thomas was back before the start of arguments today. Thomas, 73, was admitted to Sibley Memorial Hospital on March 18 over “flu-like symptoms.”
Yesterday Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) said: “You have the wife of a sitting Supreme Court justice advocating for an insurrection, advocating for overturning a legal election to the sitting president’s chief of staff and she also knows this election, these cases, are going to come before her husband. This is a textbook case for removing him, recusing him from these decisions.”
Dem Rep Ilhan Omar called for Clarence to be impeached. Omar said in response to the story about Thomas’ wife texting with Mark Meadows:
“Clarence Thomas needs to be impeached.”
Stephen L. Miller reminded Omar of what she was truly saying:
If we start removing government officials because of the ethically questionable behavior of their spouses, oh brother have I got some news you’re not going to like.” And another Twitter user joked: “Get your wife in line, seethed the feminists.”
Joe Scarborough claimed that ‘justice will not be served when it comes to Donald Trump’ before complaining that Merrick Garland won’t indict Ginni Thomas, Trump, and many others.
He said: “If you are reading this story and thinking justice will be served against these people that tried to overthrow the democracy, and we found out the Justice Department is not interested in doing that.
“We found out Merrick Garland is not interested in serving up justice because somebody somewhere might think, ‘Oh, my god, there’s a political angle to this.’ Are you kidding me?
“This after that guy on the screen right now spent four years trying to break down the wall between the White House and the Justice Department, the White House and the FBI, the White House and the intel services, and now we have an attorney general that won’t even bring charges when crimes are committed?
“Let that sink in for a second, guys, gals.
“The bad guys always get away from the Trump administration, and they will here as well, and it’s just unfortunately the whole American belief that no man is above the law, that doesn’t apply to Donald Trump.
“We don’t know why, it just doesn’t.
“Again, this story in and of itself, these texts, they indict all of them as un-American, unpatriotic seditioners, end of story.”
