AOC Calls For Resignation Of Clarence Thomas Over Wife’s Jan. 6 Texts

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., is the latest to join the chorus of House Democrats calling for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas to step down or be impeached.

Democrats have been criticizing Thomas for not recusing himself from cases related to the Jan. 6, 2021 Capitol riot, after it was revealed that his wife sent text messages to then-White House chief of staff Mark Meadows urging him to challenge Donald Trump‘s 2020 election loss.

“Clarence Thomas should resign,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted Tuesday morning. “If not, his failure to disclose income from right-wing organizations, recuse himself from matters involving his wife, and his vote to block the Jan 6th commission from key information must be investigated and could serve as grounds for impeachment.”

Ocasio-Cortez joins Reps. Veronica Escobar, D-Texas, Hank Johnson, D-Ga., Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and Nydia Velazquez, D-N.Y., in calling for Thomas to leave the bench or face impeachment proceedings.

House and Senate Democrats on Monday sent a letter to Thomas and Chief Justice John Roberts regarding “alarming new reports about Justice Thomas’s potential conflicts of interest” related to his wife. They claimed there is an “urgent need for significant ethics reform at the Supreme Court.”

They cited a federal statute that calls upon judges and justices to recuse from “any proceeding in which his impartiality might reasonably be questioned,” and slammed him for remaining involved in cases related to the 2020 election and the Jan. 6 riot, despite his wife’s reported involvement with efforts to overturn the election’s results.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said Friday it is Thomas’ decision on whether to recuse himself. 

“It’s his decision based upon law. If you spent any time studying the Supreme Court justice, he’s one who studies correctly, and I mean, from all the way through. If he sees it’s not upholding the Constitution, he’ll rule against it.”

In their letter, the Democrats also faulted Thomas for not disclosing his wife’s income from the Heritage Foundation between 2003 and 2007. 

They called upon Thomas to explain his decision to remain involved in cases related to the election and riot, and stated that Roberts should commit “to creating a binding Code of Conduct for the Supreme Court.”

  1. This is the stupidest thing this idiot has said although she has said some doozies in the past. Not the sharpest knife in the drawer. If anyone needs impeached and canceled it is this idiot. She has said things that are far more dangerous and more impeachable. Why would anyone in their right mind think that someone should be fired for something their partner said? I thought we lived in a free country guided by our founding fathers and the Constitution. She just needs to shut up.

    • Well said! If anyone should resign, it is AOC !!!!

    • …and as far as not reporting his wife’s income; they may keep their finances separate, with no access to the other party. Thus; it’s not HIS income. The DEMS ARE JUST TILTING AT WINDMILLS, BECAUSE THEY KNOW THEY ARE DOOMED IN THE MIDTERMS

    • AOC IS A WITCH, WHO DOES SHE THINK SHE IS. TELLING A SUPREME COURT Judge to resign. SHE needs to go after the real crooks. The Bidens , the Clinton’s, etc etc. Democrats are crooks and liars. Instead of doing their work, they go after other people to make their lives misirable, like they did our great president Trump.

  2. The Democrats will try ANYTHING to turn people against conservatives. This investigation will probably waste taxpayer’s money, and end up with nothing; just like the Russian investigation. Which probably would have turned up more, if it was investigating Hillary & Biden. As Kevin McCarthy stated, most Democrats; especially “The Squad” & AOC most likely have no clue what’s in the Constitution.

  3. The demonRAT idiot speaks. No one listens!

  4. AOC and yhe democrats can go F themselves.

  5. I never thought anyone in the democrat party could be dumber then Maxine waters and then aoc comes along. No one truly listened to this idiot

  6. I don’t know why anybody listens to her. Don’t give her a mike!

  7. I would say that AOC is the least intelligent person in Congress but then I think of Maxine, Maine and Rhashida……the list goes on.

  8. The whole January 6th 2021chaos was orchestrated by those anti-American slime who infiltrated the mob to create havoc. Understand the deep state’s motives to completely twist things around and backwards to take the focus away from the reality that the election was stolen by their orchestrated voter fraud . That’s why that deranged walking feces we have as a “president” is in office.
    The election was stolen. Trump is out rages by the fact that it was stolen. Who would not be if they’re true Americans ?
    The controlled media has the mob focusing on the lies they publish to conceal the truth.

  9. AOC has no room to talk. She should have been removed for all the BS she has caused in NY. I sure hope they wake up down there and vote her out in the fall.
