Boxer was discussing Thomas’ ruling against releasing documents to the House Select Committee investigating the January 6, 2021 Capitol breach which the left insists on falsely labeling an “insurrection,” in light of reports that his wife texted then-chief of staff Mark Meadows about overturning the 2020 presidential election.
Boxer said, “I looked at it from the lens of someone who served on the Bipartisan Ethics Committee in the Senate for many years. I was chair and co-chair for all those years. I would say this, I thought if Clarence Thomas had been a Senator and his wife was texting the president’s chief of staff about overturning democracy, Clarence Thomas, if he were a senator, would have been thrown out of the Senate if he knew about it and did not recuse himself from the case.”
She continued, “Even though in our history only one Supreme Court justice has been impeached, that was in 1804, I still think it would be good for someone to introduce articles of impeachment, to lay out this abuse of power for everyone to see.”
Democrat leaders (like Boxer keeps reminding us she once was) apparently have nothing more constructive to do than launch impeachment investigations against political opponents. Their constituents need to ask themselves what those Democrat politicians are actually doing for them.
Asked for clarification if she considered this “a potentially impeachable issue for Justice Thomas,” Boxer replied, “I believe so, if he knew. If he knew about this communication and as someone who has been married for, guess what, 60 years, I can tell you by listening through Ginni Thomas, through the emails, she was hysterical. It’s hard for me to believe she doesn’t mention a thing or two about that.”
The hysterical woman here is Boxer, not Clarence Thomas’ wife.
