Far-left Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) is demanding Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas resign or face impeachment for what she has determined are ethical breaches.
The comments follow reports that Thomas’ wife, Virginia Thomas, exchanged text messages with then-White House chief of staff Mark Meadows about alleged election fraud.
“Clarence Thomas should resign,” AOC tweeted.
“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.”
Thomas is the longest-serving justice, the second black justice, the only black justice, and the most conservative member currently serving on the Supreme Court.
One has to wonder what the media takeaway would be here if a Republican lawmaker were trying to impeach the only black justice sitting on the bench of the Supreme Court.
AOC goes after Clarence Thomas, however, and nobody bats an eye.
Democrats are currently trying to get Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson seated on the Supreme Court after President Biden vowed to only consider black women for the Court.
They’re seeking to place Jackson on the court in large part due to her being black, while simultaneously trying to remove the only current black member.
Proving it is all about extreme ideology and subservience to Democrats in the end. They only act as if they care about diversity if it will help them get votes.
President Biden, as an example of this, filibustered the nomination of Judge Janice Rogers Brown, a black woman, to serve on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit in 2003.
He subsequently warned then-President George W. Bush he would do the same if she were nominated as the first black woman to serve on the Supreme Court.
Ocasio-Cortez, in discussing Biden’s decision to choose a black woman for the Supreme Court suggested “identity” would only take that person so far. That their “worldview” would have to match up with the extreme left.
“Identity is just the starting step when we are discussing a Supreme Court justice … ” she said. “But the question is, what is going to be that nominee’s worldview?”
On Clarence Thomas’s supposed ethical breaches – for which she provided no evidence – AOC suggested he needs to be taught a lesson.
“Congress must understand that a failure to hold Clarence Thomas accountable sends a loud, dangerous signal to the full Court,” she said adding that punishment might deter other conservative on the Supreme Court from acting as he has.
The National Review’s Andrew McCarthy notes that Supreme Court justices aren’t subject to recusal even if their own activities involve certain cases.
“The smearing of Justice Thomas is transparently partisan politics, nothing more,” he writes.
