DC: Associate Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas denied wrongdoing in a response to an article alleging that he accepted improper gifts from a longtime friend and conservative donor.
“Harlan and Kathy Crow are among our dearest friends, and we have been friends for over twenty-five years. 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,” Thomas said in a statement.
The Left is attacking Clarence Thomas again in yet another futile attempt to get him to resign.
They know that Biden has less than a year to appoint another Justice – a short window of time for a SCOTUS vacancy – hence their desperation.
They know he can't win re-election.

ProPublica reported that Thomas and his wife traveled on the Crows’ yacht and on their private jet on numerous occasions over Thomas’ tenure on the Court. The article quoted several ethics experts who alleged that Thomas violated disclosure rules that require judges and justices to disclose large gifts.
Left hates and wants to destroy Clarence Thomas because he is America's leading black conservative. This retread is another hit piece. Yawn. https://t.co/EvUBG8c1fl

Congressional Democrats responded to the article by urging Thomas to resign and reiterating calls to pack the Supreme Court.
“I have endeavored to follow that counsel throughout my tenure, and have always sought to comply with disclosure guidelines. These guidelines are now being changed, as the committee of the Judicial Conference responsible for financial disclosure over the entire federal judiciary just this past month announced new guidance. And, it is, of course, my intent to follow this guidance in the future,” he continued.
