Exactly, this is a non story if there ever was one. It jsut highlights the desperation on the Left.
No, the Congress wouldn’t cooperate much, but I do think they’d hold hearings and throw enough mud to depress confidence in the justices and increase the pressure on them to retire. Nobody wants to bring his career to a close in the docket, under a cloud. They might stand up for themselves, but the leftists would still have made gains just by cooking up the controversy. The Alinsky way.
Especially Thomas, they’re basically telling him, “You can retire now, or the next two years are going to make your confirmation hearings look like a wedding feast.”
They’re betting he’ll quit, and they’ve little to lose if he doesn’t.
The American public. Put away your foil hat.
Every member of Congress and every Congressional staffer has to fill them out. Most states have a similar disclosure requirement for legislators and their staffs. I have been filling them out for years.
Nowhere near a tin foil hat and the Supreme Court is not Congressional legislators. The silly article even admits it.
"Clarence Thomas allegedly committed an an act that isnt a crime of any sort or he allegedly committed an act that could be interpreted as a violation of some law. "
What I wanted to know is what US statute Thomas was in violation? We see Justice Thomas was under no obligation by law to report his wife's income, but only violated the imaginations of socialists with pea brains who have an axes to grind.
Didn't say it was. It was used as an E-X-A-M-P-L-E. Look it up in a dictionary.
They probably feel that they can raise enough of a stink to “force” Thomas to resign. Which is a miscalculation, obviously, but the folks running Common Cause ARE delusional. Their fallback might be to raise enough of a stink to force Republican office holders to address the issue, creating a distraction that drives them off message and task and forces them into positions that cause political damage.
You certainly seemed to imply it. BTW, it still is a Slime’s article that was unworthy for print.
Unlike democrats though I bet she paid taxes on it. Plus if it’s her income what would he have to do with it?
