AOC Demands Justice Thomas Recuse Himself From Ballot Decision

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D-NY) is at it again, demanding that Supreme Court Justice Clearance Thomas remove himself from the Colorado ballot decision based on his wife Virginia “Ginni” Thomas’ “behavior.”

Speaking to CNN host Anderson Cooper on Monday, AOC, as in AOC fashion, stated information without any evidence to back it up.

“It’s very clear: Clarence Thomas and, rather, his wife, Ginni, participated in the events of Jan. 6, and now what is likely coming before the Supreme Court is a judgment as to whether an event that his wife participated in, that his wife has been investigated by in the Jan. 6 committee, qualifies as an insurrection,” she said.

As always, AOC went on a rant without producing any proof of her claims. There is no evidence that Ginny Thomas “participated” in Jan.6. Rather, she attended the pro-Trump rally outside the Capitol Building a few hours before the violent outbreak occurred. She also has not been charged in the event.

As pointed out by Blaze, AOC’s claim about Ginni is also false because she had never been charged with insurrection, as she was not prosecuted for the crime, as many others have.

AOC, along with her radical leftist colleagues, even went as far as writing a letter to Thomas asking him to remove himself from the case. This letter was the second letter sent to the Supreme Court justice, with the first being sent last month.

The radical left representative was not alone in her vocal cries to have Clearance step down.
During a press conference last week, Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) also demanded that Thomas “recuse himself.”

Raskin claimed that Ginni was “directly involved” in the Jan. 6 protests. Like his colleague AOC, his statement lacked factual evidence.

According to a report, Ginni Thomas sent a text message to Mark Meadows, Trump’s White House chief of staff, encouraging him to try and keep Trump in office after his loss to President Joe Biden.
There is no indication that the Supreme Court justice had anything to do with the texts. Ginni stated that she and her husband share many beliefs but are both individuals. The left should appreciate her statement. After all, women are individuals and are responsible for their actions.

In that case, Ginni’s texts have no bearing on Thomas’ judgment on the Colorado issue. Thomas is the longest-serving justice. He knows how to judge based on facts.
