The Petition calling for the Impeachment of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has Amassed 300,000+ Signatures
Recent polling has also indicated many feelings Americans have against Clarence Thomas...
MoveOn, a public policy advocacy group, has organized a petition calling for the impeachment of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. The petition has recently surpassed 300,000 total signatures and still doesn’t mention the recent decision to overturn Roe. The main reasoning behind the impeachment push is Clarence Thomas’ involvement in the January 6th Riots along with his wife.
"Recently, Justice Clarence Thomas voted against a Supreme Court decision to compel the release of Donald Trump's records regarding the January 6 insurrection and attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election. It has become clear that his wife—longtime conservative activist Ginni Thomas—was actively urging the White House to overturn election results both leading up to January 6 and after the deadly insurrection. Thomas' failure to recuse himself warrants immediate investigation and heightened alarm. And it's only the latest in a long history of conflicts of interest in the service of a right-wing agenda and mixing his powerful role with his conservative political activism. He has shown he cannot be an impartial justice and is more concerned with covering up his wife's coup attempts than the health of the Supreme Court. He must resign—or Congress must immediately investigate and impeach."
The petition reads.
Signatures for the petition have been flowing in at a ridiculous pace, as it has generated 143,000 signatures on March 31, and by June 16th, that figure was nearly 230,000. Just this morning, the petition signatures totaled just around 300,000.
Alongside the petition for the impeachment of Clarence Thomas, a recent poll was released showing that the majority of Americans strongly believe Thomas should face some form of an investigation surrounding his refusal to recuse himself from cases involving the 2020 presidential election. The House Committee investigating the attacks of January 6th revealed that Ginni Thomas (Clarence’s wife) had been in contact with John Eastman via email leading up to the events that unfolded.
