Democrats are up to no good again.
They are now demanding that Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas recuse himself from a case before the court.
According to Rep. Dan Goldman (D-N.Y.), Thomas’ ties to a group make him ineligible to rule on the case.
Attacks against Thomas are nothing new, and this was to be expected.
The Loper Bright Enterprises v. Raimondo case has brought the spotlight back on Thomas for donor events he has attended.
According to Goldman, the attorneys for the plaintiffs are part of the Koch network.
Thomas has attended events associated with this network, so Goldman wants him to recuse himself from the case.
He stated, “There is no question that your lengthy relationship with the Kochs, including your participation in donor retreats for the Koch network, requires recusal in the upcoming case that the Koch network has teed up in an attempt to overturn Chevron.
“Moreover, as you should be aware, the Koch network’s staff attorneys represent the plaintiffs in this case.”
Thomas has never bowed to public pressure, but the situation is a bit different now with all the attention he has garnered over his financial disclosures.
No comment has been made by Thomas or the Supreme Court on this matter, so we will keep our eyes out for a response to the Goldman request.
