One thing you have to give Dems credit for: they never stop trying to find new and creative ways of taking down their enemies. And one of the biggest conservative fish Dems would love to fry is Justice Clarance Thomas, and thanks to a sketchy new “scandal,” Dems think they have a chance to bring down the popular conservative justice.
The politically-driven controversy started when a fake “bipartisan” watchdog group called ProPublica issued a report on the close relationship between Justice Thomas, his wife Ginni, and a Texas billionaire named Harlan Crow. Supposedly, Justice Thomas accepted lavish “gifts” and trips paid for by a Texas billionaire, and allegedly engaged in questionable real estate transactions and payments.
That was all Dems needed to hear and they were quickly off to the races, demanding that Chief Justice John Roberts testify before Congress and take action against Thomas’ “ethical violations.”
Meanwhile, it’s curious that the identity of the Supreme Court “leaker” remains a mystery. One can’t help but wonder why Dems are so focused on the Thomas situation when the leaker is still on the loose.
Just days ago, Dems renewed their calls for an ethics investigation into Justice Thomas.
The head of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics believes that Justice Clarence Thomas’ ethical problems aren’t enough to take him down. However, Dems are hoping they can work around that little problem and gin up more serious accusations surrounding the so-called “coverup” of the “crime.”
But that may be a problem for Dems… because in a rare show of unanimity, the other Justices serving on the Supreme Court have publicly rebuked the Dems for going after Justice Thomas. It is the first time that the Court’s members have taken a unanimous stance like this.
Attorney Mike Davis blasted Dems ongoing political witch hunt against Justice Thomas and shared an unprecedented unanimous statement from the Supreme Court Justices. This statement condemns the unfair and baseless attacks on Justice Thomas’ reputation, and shows a rare display of solidarity.
Here’s what Mike said (lightly edited by us):
All 9 justices issued an extremely rare—even unanimous—statement. It details how and why the Supreme Court decides recusals on cases and other ethical issues. It is carefully written, well-reasoned, and entirely convincing. It should put to rest all the Democrats’ (fake, political) concerns about Supreme Court ethics.
Before very recently, it was rare to hear concerns about ethics at the Supreme Court. Democrat-appointed Supreme Court justices:
– taught overseas
– took trips with their friends (even an attorney with regular business before the Court)
– amended their ethics filings, after failing to disclose issues (including years of a spouse’s legal-related income)
– failed to recuse on matters
– even heard cases involving a spouse’s law firm
These were never treated as scandalous. We never heard a peep from the media—until now.
Democrat politicians and their lapdogs in the media are now politicizing and weaponizing judicial ethics. This is a political smear campaign to attack Republican-appointed justices with novel—and laughable—legal theories while ignoring the ethical issues with Democrat-appointed justices (like regularly taking undisclosed lavish trips with an attorney and Fortune 5 board member with regular business before the Court.)
Democrats are now running this political smear campaign because we have the first constitutionalist Supreme Court in 90 years. And these Democrats know the Supreme Court is the last line of defense protecting Americans from government overreach and tyranny. So these Democrats want to destroy the Supreme Court’s legitimacy and the Supreme Court’s judicial independence with the ultimate goal of destroying the Supreme Court. With court-packing, impeachment, term limits, and jurisdiction-stripping.
Senate Democrats are holding a political hearing on Tuesday. They want to legislatively enact a litany of bogus ethical traps so they can use them to attack conservative justices. If Senate Democrats actually cared about government ethics, they would investigate President Biden and his extended family corruptly taking millions from Chinese and Ukrainian oligarchs. (They don’t care.)
The President is almost certainly compromised by corrupt and illegal payments from our foreign enemies. (Crickets.) This is all a political sham. This is all about power.Senator Durbin should be ashamed of himself. He knows he’s attacking judicial independence and the separation of powers. But Durbin is too weak to stand up to his unhinged leftist colleagues, like Senator Whitehouse. (Why does Sheldon Whitehouse still belong to his all-white, racist beach club?). Truly shameful.
Here’s a copy of the letter Mike shared on Twitter. You can also read the full letter here.
While it may not be enough to make Democrats back off from attacking Justice Thomas, the letter serves as a compelling testament to his pristine reputation among his colleagues, and perhaps gives us reason to believe that the Supreme Court remains somewhat impartial.
