UNREAL: Democrat Senator calls on DOJ to force Alito and Thomas to recuse from Trump cases

A member of the totalitarian left and the US Senate is now calling on the DOJ to force Justices Alito and Thomas to recuse themselves from their Trump cases.

Democrat Jamie Raskin from Maryland actually wants Jack Smith and others

Here’s the news from The Hill:

Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) argued that the Department of Justice could force the recusals of Supreme Court Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito in cases the court is facing related to the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol attack.

“Everyone assumes that nothing can be done about the recusal situation because the highest court in the land has the lowest ethical standards — no binding ethics code or process outside of personal reflection,” the Maryland Democrat said in an opinion piece in The New York Times published Wednesday. “Each justice decides for him- or herself whether he or she can be impartial.”

Raskin then noted that Alito and Thomas “could choose to recuse themselves,” but that “begging them to do the right thing misses a far more effective course of action.”

“The U.S. Department of Justice — including the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia, an appointed U.S. special counsel and the solicitor general, all of whom were involved in different ways in the criminal prosecutions underlying these cases and are opposing Mr. Trump’s constitutional and statutory claims — can petition the other seven justices to require Justices Alito and Thomas to recuse themselves not as a matter of grace but as a matter of law,” Raskin continued.

“The Justice Department and Attorney General Merrick Garland can invoke two powerful textual authorities for this motion: the Constitution of the United States, specifically the due process clause, and the federal statute mandating judicial disqualification for questionable impartiality, 28 U.S.C. Section 455,” Raskin said.

This is beyond preposterous at this point. Neither Justice did anything wrong whatsoever and every Democrat that’s part of this pressure campaign knows it. But they don’t care. They want the court to rule a certain way and that’s all they care about.

These are the same people who are screaming that Trump is a threat to democracy and here they are doing their damnedest to try and destroy it themselves.

Here’s a few responses to this madness:
