The Huffington Post reports:
The group of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’ former clerks who signed on to a letter this week defending the justice from “attacks on his integrity, his character [and] his ethics” included one individual whose integrity has been drawn into serious question: John C. Eastman. Eastman is accused of undermining the core of American democracy — free and fair elections — by scheming to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election in Georgia. +
Other signees include James C. Ho, now a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit who recently argued that anti-abortion doctors “experience an aesthetic injury” when a patient chooses to end a pregnancy; Fox News pundit Laura Ingraham; and Judicial Crisis Network President Carrie Severino, who has helped shape the federal court system by recommending judicial appointments like those of Supreme Court Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett.
Read the full article. Carrie Severino last appeared here when she screeched about the Supreme Court’s ruling that state legislatures cannot redraw congressional districts without the oversight of state courts. Severino’s husband, you may recall, enacted multiple anti-LGBTQ policies as Trump’s director of the civil rights division at HHS. Earlier this year it was revealed that Roger Severino spent millions on voter suppression attempts through his new gig at the Heritage Foundation. Of note, the Judicial Crisis Network was called the Judicial Confirmation Network right up until we got a black president.
“His integrity is unimpeachable,” the signees declared. https://t.co/xE3vPUpnK6
