Mitch McConnell Defends Clarence Thomas Against ‘Clumsy Bullying’

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) defended Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, decrying the ongoing “clumsy bullying from the political branches.”

Thomas is facing calls to recuse himself from cases pertaining to the Jan. 6 Capitol riot after it was revealed that his wife, Ginni Thomas, sent text messages to then-White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, urging him to overturn the election.

McConnell described the calls for Thomas to recuse himself as an “inappropriate pressure campaign.”

“It has no basis in Justice Thomas’s decades of impeccable service on the court. The justice and the entire court should feel free to completely ignore all this,” McConnell said.

“This clumsy bullying from the political branches is really beyond the pale. Justice Thomas is an exemplary jurist who has modeled fidelity to the rule of law for more than 30 years and counting.”

Earlier this week, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called for Thomas to resign, or possibly face impeachment proceedings.

    Thomas should recuse himself from ALL POLITICAL cases in front of the Supreme Court. He’s tainted and everyone knows it. Only a moron would ignore Thomas’ wife’s traitorous activities. Truly scandalous!
