Congresswoman Summer Lee Calls for Clarence Thomas’ Impeachment After He Accepted Undisclosed Luxury Trips from GOP Mega-Donor 

(BRADDOCK, PA) – Congresswoman Summer Lee (PA-12) released the following statement after a report by ProPublica uncovered that Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas failed to disclose that he and his wife accept multiple luxury trips from GOP Mega-Donor Harlan Crow for more than two decades, violating a law passed after Watergate that requires justices, judges, members of Congress and federal officials to disclose most gifts. 

Congresswoman Lee said, “The normalization of shamelessly corrupt, undemocratic behavior by Republican legislatures, governors, and judges at EVERY level is testing the limits of our democracy  and judicial integrity like this country has never seen never before.

“To allow Justice Thomas to be bought out with Illegally accepted luxury vacations and gifts is to make a kangaroo court out of the highest court in the land.

“This CANNOT be about politics. There must be bipartisan action for accountability.

“Our commitment to democracy and our judicial integrity MUST be bigger than any party’s hunger for power.

“It’s time for a vote on impeachment.”
