Warren, Representative Pramila Jayapal and members of the House and Senate judiciary committees also want Thomas and Chief Justice John Roberts to explain why Thomas didn’t recuse himself from a case involving access to former President Donald Trump’s White House records, in which Thomas was the lone vote against release of the documents.

Justice Thomas failed to recuse himself from cases about the 2020 election & Jan 6, while his wife was leading efforts to overturn the election. @RepJayapal & I are leading over 20 colleagues to demand answers about this potentially egregious ethics breach.https://t.co/3FJFZLb90m

Ginni Thomas tried to overturn an election. Her husband, Justice Clarence Thomas, must recuse himself from any more cases on the coup attempt. He must explain why he hasn’t already done so. And the Supreme Court needs a basic, binding Code of Ethics. https://t.co/mDmfaf5Xok
