Democrats Are Climbing the Walls Over Justice Clarence Thomas’ Decision with Sen. Graham
The left is climbing the walls over a move that Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas just made. He halted an order that challenged Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina to testify about the 2020 election. Graham was to appear before a Georgia grand jury, but that decision has stayed and the left is in an uproar.
Judge Thomas has jurisdiction over appeals from Georgia and took the legal position siding with Graham. The order does halt the testimony, but it only does so temporarily so that the full court can consider the appeal.
Sen. Graham made the argument that the calls he made to Georgia election officials were protected under the speech and debate clause of the Constitution. That position was ruled against by the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals and they ordered Graham to testify before the Georgia grand jury.
Some on the left are now accusing Thomas of being politically biased because of the reports that he did not make it clear it was simply a temporary halt to the testimony.
One commentator who identifies as a gay activist wrote that Clarence Thomas should be arrested and removed from the Supreme Court. The arrest would bypass the impeachment process and allow Biden to nominate a replacement.
Another very popular tweet said, “Clarence Thomas is a corrupt hack and I’m so f***ing tired of corrupt hacks f***ing everything up for the rest of us.”
There were many more tweets on this issue that called Thomas every name in the book and demanded that he recuse himself.
A portion of the criticism centered around Thomas’ wife, Ginni Thomas, who sent a number of text messages to White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows who served former President Trump. The texts focused on overturning the official results of the 2020 presidential election.
