Donald Trump supporters’ assault on Capitol Hill has one of the most conservative justices on the US Supreme Court in trouble.
Ginni thomas, wife of Judge Clarence Thomas, the only African-American in the Supreme Court, posted on Facebook messages of support for the people who gathered in Washington on January 6.
“I love MAGA peopleGinni Thomas wrote on her profile. “God bless you go out to defend or pray.”
The messages were written before the outgoing president gave a speech to the crowd and the mob stormed the building that houses the nation’s Congress. The posts were later deleted and the magistrate’s wife has not posted anything since.
There is no reality in which it is appropriate for the wife of a Supreme Court Justice, already a rightwing PAC political player, to endorse sedition.
Clarence Thomas should retire. https://t.co/naTFrzp1rI

Ginni Thomas’ messages on January 6 are not the first to show her sympathy for Trump. According to Slate, women often publish conspiracy theories about a coup against Trump financed by magnate George Soros.
The magistrate’s wife has also reproduced false information about the role of Bill gates, founder of Microsoft, on the coronavirus vaccine. According to the New York Times, Ginni Thomas made lists of federal officials who were not loyal enough to Trump. It has also condemned to the Black Lives Matter movement.
Personalities in social networks have requested the resignation of Clarence Thomas to the Supreme for open support for Trump and his supporters.
Thread. Justice Clarence Thomas must resign from the Supreme Court or at the very least take on Senior status while his wife’s alleged financing of a terrorist attack is investigated. https://t.co/6iOBBL5tcq
