Justice Thomas is the by far the most conservative member of Supreme Court. Democrats are doing all they can to get rid of him.
And Clarence Thomas was just served a chilling order from Congress.
The past few years of Supreme Court decisions have been a boon for conservatives.
Everything from allowing pro-life laws to defending the second amendment, the Court is decidedly more favorable to conservatives than before.
Justice Clarence Thomas has been spearheading the Constitutional conservative side of the Court, just like he has for decades.
And, for that, Democrats are targeting him.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY, a member of the far-left “Squad,” is requesting that the Department of Justice investigate Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’s relationship with a Republican megadonor and others she alleges he profited financially from.
In a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland on Friday, Ocasio-Cortez and four of her progressive colleagues demanded that the DOJ investigate Thomas “for consistently failing to report significant gifts he received from Harlan Crow and other billionaires for nearly two decades — in defiance of his duty under federal law.”
“First, Justice Thomas has received numerous undisclosed valuable gifts from Harlan Crow over the course of at least fifteen years, despite certifying repeatedly that his financial disclosure forms are “accurate, true, and complete,” in certifications “subject to civil and criminal sanctions,” the letter read.
No one is above the law. For two decades, Justice Thomas failed to report millions in gifts. Today, we asked DOJ to investigate Thomas for violating the Ethics of Government Act of 1978. We are joined by Ranking Members Nadler & Raskin, and Judiciary Members Lieu & Hank Johnson. pic.twitter.com/UfV7qDVMAU

According to the letter, Thomas’ strong association with real estate developer Harlan Crow allowed him to accompany the Texas millionaire on luxurious trips on his private plane and yacht, as well as complimentary stays on Crow’s sprawling vacation property, among other advantages.
It then accused Thomas of failing to recuse himself from matters “before the court in which there was a potential conflict of interest,” and mentioned prior ProPublica investigations into additional gifts Thomas allegedly received from other rich persons.
“No one is above the law. For two decades, Justice Thomas failed to report millions in gifts. Today, we asked DOJ to investigate Thomas for violating the Ethics of Government Act of 1978. We are joined by Ranking Members [Jerrold] Nadler & [Jamie] Raskin, and Judiciary Members [Ted] Lieu & Hank Johnson,” Ocastio-Cortez wrote on social media.
After the initial ProPublica piece was published in April, Thomas issued a rare statement defending the trips he took with his friends over many years and stressing that he had always followed Supreme Court advice.
“Harlan and Kathy Crow are among our dearest friends, and we have been friends for over twenty-five years,” Thomas said.
“As friends do, we have joined them on a number of family trips during the more than quarter-century we have known them.”
“Early in my tenure at the Court, I sought guidance from my colleagues and others in the judiciary, and was advised that this sort of personal hospitality from close personal friends, who did not have business before the Court, was not reportable,” he added.
This is yet another witch hunt. And the left-leaning media will pepper Americans with report after report questioning the good Justice’s ethics.
But most Americans see through the lies. They know this just a Leftist hit job.
