Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., announced he thinks Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas should recuse himself from cases related to the events of January 6, after it was shown last week that his wife sent text messages to then-White House chief of staff Mark Meadows urging him to challenge Donald Trump’s 2020 election loss. “I do think he should recuse himself,” Schumer explained to reporters on Tuesday throughout a press conference. “The information we know right now raises serious questions about how close Justice Thomas and his wife were to the planning and execution of the insurrection.” Schumer also announced he thinks there should be “some kind of code of ethics for Supreme Court justices.” When asked whether Thomas should be impeached, Senator Sherrod Brown of Ohio announced that he should recuse himself.

I don’t follow the court enough to know what specific cases but anything that has to do with his wife’s advocacy that way, that publicly, that aggressively, he should recuse himself.” Schumer is one of several Democrats who have recently called on Thomas to recuse himself after reports of the messages between Meadows and Virginia “Ginni” Thomas. On Monday, Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, called on Thomas to recuse himself from January 6-related cases, citing the link between Thomas’s wife and Meadows “really creates an obvious conflict.” [tweet_embed] April 1, 2022[/tweet_embed] Last week, Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., issued a statement insisting “Justice Thomas’ conduct on the Supreme Court looks increasingly corrupt.” Wyden said Thomas should “recuse himself from any case related to the January 6 investigation, and should Donald Trump run again, any case related to the 2024 election.” The remarks from Democratic senators follow reports regarding text messages, copies of which were obtained by The Washington Post and CBS, sent between Ginni Thomas and Meadows. Before ending his cooperation with the investigation, those text messages, part of a larger number of documents, were turned over by Meadows to the House Select Committee examining the events at the Capitol on January 6, 2021.

She called the 2020 presidential election “the greatest Heist of our History.” Last Friday, Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn. told CBS News that Thomas should consider “voluntarily appearing” before the January 6 Committee to address the text messages his wife sent to Meadows.
