Statement on Ginni Thomas' Efforts to Overturn 2020 Election
Statement from Fix the Court’s Gabe Roth on tonight’s revelations that Ginni Thomas was feeding then-White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows theories on how to overturn the 2020 election:
“Today’s revelations mean that now, beyond any doubt, Justice Thomas must recuse from any Supreme Court cases or petitions related to the Jan. 6 Committee or efforts to overturn the election.
“Ginni’s direct participation in this odious anti-democracy work, coupled with the new reporting that seems to indicate she may have spoken to Justice Thomas about it, leads to the conclusion that the justice’s continued participation in cases related to these efforts would only further tarnish the court’s already fading public reputation.
“In the very least, I hope this developing story underscores the need for Congress to make clearer and more exacting the disqualification rules for federal judges and justices.”
