Radical celebrity Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has appeared on national television and promoted baseless smears against Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and his wife, Ginni.
Ocasio-Cortez appeared on CNN to smear Thomas and his wife, without offering any evidence for her salacious claims.
Ironically, AOC continued by attacking Ginni Thomas for questioning the results of the 2020 election “despite a complete lack of evidence.”
The Democrat “Squad” member is promoting the false narrative in an effort to get Thomas to recuse himself from a case that would involve President Donald Trump, as The Blaze reported.
The Supreme Court has agreed to consider Trump’s appeal of the Colorado Supreme Court’s decision that he is not qualified to be president, as announced last week.
Following Thomas’s ruling, Ocasio-Cortez claimed on CNN that it would constitute a “scandal.”
Thomas has been charged by the high-profile millennial congresswoman with being part of an insurrection, and saying he’s therefore unfit to sit on the bench of the nation’s high court in the event of a case involving Trump.
“I think it’s very clear Clarence Thomas, and, rather, his wife, Ginni, participated in the events of Jan. 6,” Ocasio-Cortez told CNN anchor Anderson Cooper without evidence.
Unsurprisingly, Cooper failed to pull AOC up on the comment and appeared to agree with her false sentiment.
“And now what is likely going before the Supreme Court is a judgment as to whether an event that his wife participated in, that his wife has been investigated by, in the Jan. 6 committee in, qualifies as an insurrection,” AOC continued.
“And Clarence Thomas’ decision on that one way or another, and overall the court’s decision on that, would directly implicate his wife.
Ocasio-Cortez went on to say that her legal opinion is that the SCOTUS justice and constitutional scholar should not be allowed to weigh in on Trump’s case:
“So this is just one of the most classic textbook conflicts of interest and it would, frankly, be a scandal if he did not recuse himself.”
Cooper remained silent regarding all of Ocasio-Cortez’s fallacious assertions.
However, it has been established that Ginni Thomas did not “participate” in the protests at the United States Capitol on January 6, 2021.
However, she did attend the pro-Trump rally that was held outside the Capitol mere hours prior to the outbreak of violence.
Furthermore, Ginni Thomas has not faced any charges pertaining to “insurrection,” or any other criminal offense, despite the Democrats’ efforts to convince the public otherwise.
AOC hypothesized that had she engaged in any misconduct related to Jan. 6.
If that had been the case, however, the Justice Department would have undoubtedly brought her to justice, given its zealous pursuit of Jan. 6 defendants – except Ray Epps, of course.
Furthermore, it is not anticipated that the Supreme Court will render a verdict regarding the classification of Jan. 6 as an “insurrection.”
On the contrary, the matter at hand pertains to the Colorado Supreme Court’s ruling regarding President Trump’s exclusion from the 2024 presidential primary ballot, as stated in Trump’s petition for certiorari.
