Time to impeach Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas says one member of Congress. Rep. Ilhan Omar, a Minnesota Democrat, made the declaration Thursday following leaked text messages received by the House committee probing the Jan. 6 Capitol riot that show the justice's wife, conservative activist Ginni Thomas, prompting former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows to overturn the 2020 election.

The tweet to which the congresswoman responded also stated that Clarence Thomas was the one justice who voted to deprive former President Donald Trump's request for a visit of a lower court mandate that his presidential documents be turned over to the Jan. 6 committee. Among the records being sought by the committee were White House notes and call and visitor logs from on and around Jan. 6.

"The Constitution, this Court’s precedent, and the Presidential Records Act prevent two politically-aligned branches of government from wielding unfettered power to undermine the Presidency and our Republic. This Court should grant certiorari to ensure unlawful exercises of congressional power are checked by both reason and law." In the court's decision, Chief Justice John Roberts wrote that "the questions whether and in what circumstances a former President may obtain a court order preventing disclosure of privileged records from his tenure in office, in the face of a determination by the incumbent President to waive the privilege, are unprecedented and raise serious and substantial concerns." "The Court of Appeals, however, had no occasion to decide these questions because it analyzed and rejected President Trump’s privilege claims 'under any of the tests [he] advocated,' without regard to his status as a former President," Roberts wrote. The House committee's leaders praised the decision by the Supreme Court.

The only Supreme Court justice to have been impeached was Justice Samuel Chase in 1805 for conduct on the bench that was considered overly partisan. The Senate acquitted him. Ginni Thomas insisted to the Washington Free Beacon this month that she and her husband keep their careers completely separate from one another. “Clarence doesn’t discuss his work with me, and I don’t involve him in my work,” she said.

The high court has remained silent on his condition since announcing his admittance to the hospital.
