Adam Schiff Accuses Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas of Crossing ‘the Line’

Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) has accused Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas of crossing “the line” by trying to protect his wife from a congressional probe.

Schiff made the comments during an appearence on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

The Jan. 6 Committee member accused Justice Thomas of having a conflict of interest when he made his decision in that case.

“Your colleague Liz Cheney was on two other networks this morning, and she said that you all are discussing a potential subpoena for Ginni Thomas, who is married to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas,” host Margaret Brennan asked Schiff.

“Are there lines that shouldn’t be crossed here when it comes to the Supreme Court?

“Because one of the objections to the premise of a subpoena here is that it- it sets a dangerous precedent by putting the spouse of a justice in this political forum.”

Schiff fired back with allegations against Thomas.

“There are lines that shouldn’t be crossed, but those lines involve sitting Supreme Court justices, not presiding or appearing or taking action in cases in which their spouse may be implicated,” Schiff replied.

“And in this case, for Clarence Thomas to issue a decision, in a case, a dissent in a case where Congress is trying to get documents, and those documents might involve his own wife, that’s the line that’s been crossed.

“And I think, for Congress to be looking into these issues, looking into conflict of interest issues,” he said.

“But here, looking into issues, whether it involves the wife of a Supreme Court justice or anyone else, if they have information or role in an effort to overturn an election.

“Yes, they’re not excluded from examination.”
