Carl Bernstein rips ‘rogue’ judge Clarence Thomas on appeal for respect for institutions

Renowned journalist Carl Bernstein on Monday slammed “rogue” Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas for demanding respect from US government institutions after Thomas’ own wife worked to overturn the results of the 2020 election.

After protests erupted over news that the High Court is set to overturn the landmark abortion rights ruling Roe v. Wade, Thomas blamed Americans for being unable to “live with” decisions they don’t like and complained of a lack of trust in the United States. institutions “ominous for a free society”. He added that the court would not be “intimidated” by the public.

“The wife of a Supreme Court Justice doing what Ginni Thomas did is totally unknown in United States history,” Bernstein told hosts Brianna Keilar and John Avlon.

“Judge Thomas, speaking of [the] legitimacy of institutions – be it the White House or the court itself – he should recuse himself, which he refuses to do, from any matter involving the President of the United States and the election” because of the role played by his wife, Bernstein said.

“There’s a real failure of institutions, especially in the Supreme Court, by a rogue judge who wouldn’t say, ‘I’m going to stand down,'” Bernstein added. “Let’s look at what Ginni Thomas did…and we have texts of what she was saying. It’s a crazy thing… encouraging the President of the United States, really, to stage a coup.

In an even more chilling observation, Bernstein called former President Donald Trump “the nation’s first seditious president…who staged a coup to stay in power and not allow the transfer of power to a duly elected president.” elected”.
