The allegations prompted liberal organizations to renew calls for Justice Thomas’ resignation.
Rakim H.D. Brooks, president of Alliance for Justice, said Justice Thomas can’t be trusted to protect the law.
“Justice Thomas should resign. If he fails to do so, Congress is required by its oath to protect and defend the Constitution to hold robust hearings to determine just how far this rot goes and how badly it has compromised the fair administration of justice,” Mr. Brooks said.
Liberal groups have targeted Justice Thomas in the past.
Last year, they argued he should be recused from all election-related cases since Mrs. Thomas attended the Jan. 6, 2021, rally supporting then-President Trump, and spoke to former White House officials about the 2020 election results. Mrs. Thomas, who is a conservative activist, stated she did go to the Jan. 6 rally, but did not march to the U.S. Capitol where the rioting occurred.
