Sign Your Name to Hold Clarence Thomas Accountable With a Code of Ethics
The deeper the January 6th committee investigates, the more we discover about Ginni Thomas’s role in the insurrection. The January 6th committee obtained emails between Ginni Thomas and John Eastman—a former clerk of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’s and the Trump lawyer who tried to convince Mike Pence to block the certification of Biden’s victory.
Even after all of this, Clarence Thomas has yet to recuse himself from any January 6th related cases. This is unethical. Sign your name if you agree that Congress must conduct a full investigation into his unethical actions and finally pass a code of ethics for the Supreme Court.
Why is this important?
The lawyer who pressured Mike Pence to go along with a coup claims to know what Supreme Court justices are discussing, and has been revealed to be emailing with Clarence Thomas’s wife.
Despite his wife’s deep involvement in a very public act of sedition, Clarence Thomas will not recuse himself from any January 6th cases. On the contrary—he was the only justice to vote against granting the January 6th Select Committee access to key Trump administration documents related to the insurrection.
This is a clear conflict of interest. It’s blatantly unethical. But unlike every other federal judge in the nation, Supreme Court justices aren’t beholden to any structured code of conduct. That has to change. Sign your name if you agree.
