CBS’s Robert Acosta reported that Blumenthal told him that he would like Justice Thomas to voluntarily agree to testify before the 1/6 Committee.

Sen. Blumenthal also tweeted:
No question that recusal by Justice Thomas is absolutely essential going forward in any case involving the January 6 committee’s investigation & the 2024 presidential election if Trump runs again.

Sen. Blumenthal asked some very good questions. Why didn’t Justice Thomas recuse himself in the Trump records case? Thomas should not be on the bench to hear cases involving the 2020 election through the 1/6 attack.
One gets the sense that Clarence and Ginni Thomas have compromised the Supreme Court and that it is a danger to democracy for Justice Thomas to remain on the Supreme Court.
Something very wrong happened, and Ginni Thomas is in the middle of it.
Sen. Blumenthal spent 20 years working as the Connecticut Attorney General. He was suggesting that Justice Thomas should be a cooperating witness. More importantly, his comments imply that the Justice has information that the 1/6 Committee needs to hear.
