She joins other prominent Democrats who are attempting to mob Thomas. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said that Thomas should resign.
“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,” she said in a tweet.
“Congress must understand that a failure to hold Clarence Thomas accountable sends a loud, dangerous signal to the full Court – Kavanaugh, Barrett, & the rest – that his acts are fair game,” she said in a follow-up tweet. “This is a tipping point. Inaction is a decision to erode and further delegitimize SCOTUS.”
One of the texts in question, sent on November 10, 2020, reportedly read: “Help This Great President stand firm, Mark!!! You are the leader, with him, who is standing for America’s constitutional governance at the precipice. The majority knows Biden and the Left is attempting the greatest Heist of our History,” the New York Post reports.
“Biden crime family & ballot fraud co-conspirators (elected officials, bureaucrats, social media censorship mongers, fake stream media reporters, etc) are being arrested & detained for ballot fraud right now & over coming days, & will be living in barges off GITMO to face military tribunals for sedition,” she wrote in another text.
“Do not concede,” she texted on November 5.
