Justice Thomas Must Resign or Be Impeached

Thomas Dissented in Supreme Court Ruling on Trump White House Disclosing Documents —Which We Now Know Included Ginni Thomas’ Texts 

Washington, D.C. – In response to multiple news outlets reporting on Ginni Thomas’ text messages to the Trump White House, MoveOn Executive Director Rahna Epting issued the following statement:

“Disturbingly, we learned last night that Ginni Thomas was texting Trump White House officials to double down on their effort to overthrow the democratically elected government of the United States, including sending Joe Biden and election officials to Guantanamo Bay. 

“Ginni Thomas’ texts weren’t just an attack on our nation; they revealed a direct conflict of interest for Justice Thomas when a lawsuit came before the Supreme Court on whether the Trump White House needed to disclose communications we now know included texts from his wife. Justice Thomas was the only vote against White House officials having to disclose the documents.

“This is a severe conflict of interest. Justice Thomas has disgraced himself and American democracy. He must immediately resign or be impeached.”
