Daily Kos: Clarence Thomas demonstrates contempt for ethics and the rule of law. He must be impeached
This excerpt is from a piece that originally ran on April 6, 2023.
This scandal is but “the latest indication of the extent to which wealthy and corporate interests have sought to influence our highest Court,” writes the judicial advocacy group Alliance for Justice, in a statement demanding Thomas’ resignation. “Their efforts appear to have been a success, given Justice Thomas has repeatedly ruled in favor of the wealthy and powerful. According to the Constitutional Accountability Center, Thomas has ruled in favor of the Chamber of Commerce’s position in cases 72% of the time. He also notably refused to recuse himself from the 2016 case McDonnell v. United States, which specifically examined the criminality of political leaders accepting gifts from conservative donors.”
