In a shocking turn of events, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has joined forces with Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) to call for an investigation into Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas over allegedly undisclosed gifts.
With the Supreme Court on the line, the Democrats are doing everything in their power to leverage political power and legal resources in order to control the court. This includes packing the Supreme Court and removing conservative justices through their connections in the already compromised Department of Justice.
Sanders claimed on MSNBC’s “Inside with Jen Psaki” that Thomas’ behavior is “outrageous” and that the Department of Justice should be looking into his actions.
This comes after accusations were made about Thomas’ financial relationship with Harlan Crow, a Dallas-based real estate developer and GOP donor. Crow reportedly gave Thomas personal gifts and trips, which the Supreme Court Justice failed to disclose.
But the attacks on Justice Thomas do not stop there. Newer allegations suggest that Thomas also failed to disclose a real estate transaction with Crow which has only added fuel to the fire.
Despite these accusations, Thomas has maintained his innocence and defended himself, saying that he sought guidance from others in the judiciary and was advised that the personal hospitality from close friends, who did not have business before the Court, was not reportable.
The ongoing crusade to take down Justice Thomas is not only unfounded, but it is a despicable attack on a man who has spent his entire career fighting for justice and the rule of law. The continued attempts to smear his reputation and the reputation of the Supreme Court are a dangerous precedent for our democracy.
Thomas is known for his unwavering commitment to conservative values and his dedication to interpreting the Constitution as it is written. For this reason, he has been subjected to relentless attacks from those on the left who seek to undermine his authority and his influence on the Supreme Court.
These attacks are not only baseless but also simply abhorrent. The left’s attempts to portray Justice Thomas as unethical are nothing more than a political stunt to fuel their own agenda. It is a disgraceful tactic and one that should not be celebrated or tolerated by any American.
We must stand up for Justice Thomas and the integrity of the Supreme Court. This meritless witch hunt must be stopped in its tracks. The goal of those pushing for an investigation is not about justice or righteousness, it’s about tearing down a man who stands for everything they oppose. The Department of Justice must resist the calls to investigate Justice Thomas. Instead, we need to come together as a country and focus our efforts on championing the great American values that Justice Thomas has dedicated his life to upholding: freedom, justice, and prosperity for all.
