(RestoreAmericanGlory.com) – A petition to have Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas impeached has gained a lot of traction following the recent scandals that have broken out concerning the justice.
MoveOn, a public policy advocacy group, put forward the petition, which has reached 1.35 million signatures. The petition is calling for either Thomas’ resignation or for him to face impeachment. However, for Thomas to be impeached, the House of Representatives would need to hold a vote on this.
In the petition, it is alleged that Thomas has been pushing forward a right-wing agenda and has accepted from Republican big donors thousands of dollars in trips and gifts. As they point out, this has led to many questions emerging regarding his ethics.
In an opinion piece released on June 24, 2022, Thomas argued that the Supreme Court needed to “reconsider” the previous rulings it had on same-sex marriage and contraception. The opinion piece was released on the same day as the decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, which had previously protected abortion rights. However, with the overturning of the case, individual states were given the right to make decisions regarding their laws surrounding abortion.
The petition, which has been available online for several months, managed to gather around 220,000 signatures on June 11, close to 244,000 signatures by June 24, and by July 2021, it had reached over 1.2 million signatures.
ProPublica released on April 6 a report in which the relationship between Republican mega-donor Harlan Crow and Thomas was fully outlined. According to the report, Crow had provided luxury vacations and other real estate deals to Thomas for over two decades. None of these were disclosed in Thomas’ financial disclosures.
