Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez from New York set forth articles of impeachment against Supreme Court Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito, citing ethical controversies surrounding their tenure.

The impeachment resolution was backed by seven other Democrats in the House, including notable figures like Ron Wyden and Sheldon Whitehouse.

Ocasio-Cortez’s allegations focus on Thomas and Alito’s recurrent failure to recuse themselves from crucial cases before the Supreme Court, raising concerns about their impartiality.

An investigation by ProPublica revealed that Justice Thomas failed to disclose gifts from conservative donor Harlan Crow, sparking further scrutiny on his financial disclosures.

Allegations also extend to Justice Alito, who reportedly engaged in luxury travel with Republican billionaire Peter Singer, and declined to recuse himself from cases linked to the US Capitol attack, where his wife Martha-Ann Alito‘s involvement was questioned.

The articles of impeachment detail Thomas’ oversight in disclosing gifts and his refusal to step back from cases involving his wife, Ginni Thomas, who was associated with groups connected to the Capitol insurrection.

Similarly, Alito is criticized for failing to disclose personal financial interests and luxury travel, as well as his involvement in cases tied to the January 6 events despite concerns over his wife’s connection to extremist groups.

Ocasio-Cortez reiterated that the implications of the justices’ actions pose a severe threat to the integrity of the judicial system, prompting a call for accountability and ethical standards within the Supreme Court.

Thomas and Alito’s decisions in high-profile cases involving Donald Trump and the January 6 insurrection have faced scrutiny, raising questions about their objectivity and potential conflicts of interest.

The introduction of impeachment articles against sitting Supreme Court justices marks a rare and consequential move that underscores the urgency of upholding ethical standards and transparency within the highest court in the land.
