Justice Thomas Crushes Left's 'Billionaire-Funded-Trips' Impeachment Dreams

• by Tyler Durden

The latest cunning plan was to demand Justice Clarence Thomas be immediately impeached for - what can only be summarized as - having rich friends.

In case you missed it, the left was gleeful and cries of 'we got em this time' rang out on Twitter after:

ProPublica revealed in so-called bombshell reporting that right-wing Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has been taking luxury trips funded by a billionaire Republican megadonor for more than 20 years without formally disclosing them - a likely violation of federal law.

The investigative outlet reported Thursday that "for more than two decades, Thomas has accepted luxury trips virtually every year" from Dallas-based real estate magnate Harlan Crow.

"These trips appeared nowhere on Thomas' financial disclosures," the outlet noted.

"His failure to report the flights appears to violate a law passed after Watergate that requires justices, judges, members of Congress, and federal officials to disclose most gifts, two ethics law experts said. He also should have disclosed his trips on the yacht, these experts said."

Thomas's critics in Congress promptly seized on the report last week of the vacations, suggesting it raised the appearance of impropriety.
