“Let me be clear, Clarence Thomas is a corrupt jurist and should have no place on our highest court.” Omar said in his speech In the program. “Clarence Thomas has spent the past three decades working with his wife from the bench to handle cases related to her political interests.

“There is no way Clarence Thomas can be seen as a neutral juror and should not be deciding cases while his wife is actively working to overturn the election,” she continued. “Our failure to hold him accountable will further delegitimize the court and embolden other judges to act in lockstep with his actions. Clarence Thomas is too compromised to sit on the court, and I will be the first member of Congress to call for his impeachment.”
