This Week ProPublica Reported That Billionnaire And Hitler Memorabilia Collector Harland Crow Has Been Wining, Dining, And Transporting Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas And His Wife, Alt- Right Activist Ginni Around The World In Boats And Jets For Years. Crow Also Bought Thomas’s Mother’s Home And Thomas Didn’t Report It. This Real Estate Transaction Violates The Ethics In Government Act. Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse Is Introducing A Bill That Seeks Accountability And Transparency Of Supreme Court Justices.
Clarence Thomas and his wife have reportedly taken lavish trips around the world on right-wing billionnaire Crow’s private jet and yacht. Crow is a conservative mega donor to the Republican party and befriended Thomas after he became a Supreme Court Justice. Both men insist they never discussed cases being ejudicated by the Court. However, Thomas not disclosing these expensive gestures of hospitality diminish the ability to trust any assertion of integrity he professes. Crow and Thomas are extreme right-wing conservatives and how Thomas votes never seems to deviate from Crow’s political positions. The Supreme Court currently has no process that monitors misconduct by the judges. Senator Whitehouse is pushing Congress to adopt stricter disclosure rules and enact a process for investigating the conduct at SCOTUS
Washington insiders have acknowledged most Republicans dislike Donald Trump. However, his corruption, cruel/ vengeful nature, and incompetence have been tolerated because he satisfies their appetite for right-wing judge appointments. The influence of religion in politics by right-wing Republican members of Congress, federal judges, Supreme Court Justices, and dark money donors has caused Senator Whitehouse and other members of the Senate to take action to monitor the behavior of justices that could compromise the integrity of the Court’s rulings. Term limits also move the judiciary branch of government away from extreme partisan rulings that do not reflect the values and goals of an administration of the opposing party or the general population.
