Political battle lines form on Clarence Thomas
By John Kruzel - 03/30/22 06:02 AM EDT

The simmering debate over Justice Clarence Thomas’s judicial ethics is shaping up as a midterm election issue, with lawmakers on both sides setting up their positions. 

Thomas is facing growing calls from Democrats to recuse himself from any Supreme Court cases that are tied to the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol since the revelation that his wife, Ginni Thomas, sought to overturn former President Trump’s electoral defeat. 

Some Democrats, such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), have called for Thomas to resign or face impeachment.

Republicans have generally rallied around Thomas, arguing that Democrats are seeking to unseat a conservative jurist because they do not like his legal opinions. Thomas is well thought of in GOP circles and he and Ginni Thomas are well-known and respected figures in the conservative movement.
