Democrats Seek Criminal Investigation of Justice Thomas Over Travel and ...
Quick Glance: Pressure Mounts for Justice Thomas Under Criminal Investigation
  • Two Democratic U.S. senators have called for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas to undergo a criminal investigation due to gifts, a loan for a recreational vehicle, and other benefits from wealthy benefactors.

  • The senators are requesting the appointment of a special counsel to examine potential violations of ethics, false statement, and tax laws by Thomas. This signifies a significant escalation in efforts to address ethics controversies surrounding Thomas and the court in recent years.

  • The Department of Justice has declined to provide a comment on the matter. The special counsel is tasked with investigating various gifts, travel, and payments that Thomas failed to disclose in his annual financial reports, as well as whether Thomas and his benefactors fulfilled their tax obligations.

  • The senators also aim to determine if the $25,000 payment to Thomas' wife, Virginia 'Ginni' Thomas, from conservative judicial activist Leonard Leo raises ethical concerns and if Thomas should have recused himself in specific cases. A violation of disclosing gifts and payments may have infringed upon a federal law requiring government officials to disclose benefits.

Judge Delays Trump’s Sentencing Until Sept. 18 After Immunity Claim
Quick Glance: Fact Check: Trump’s Misrepresentation of Supreme Court Ruling
  • Trump inaccurately claimed that the Supreme Court's ruling on presidential immunity provided him with a "total exoneration", despite none of his cases being dismissed or prior verdicts being overturned as a result of the ruling.

  • While the ruling is a victory for Trump, it does not clear him of legal troubles. His trial in Washington for election interference has been indefinitely delayed, and he still faces charges in other criminal cases.

  • The ruling does not shield Trump from civil liability in cases involving defamatory statements or fraudulent business practices.

  • The case was not dismissed but referred back for further analysis to determine if certain allegations constitute official acts that grant the president immunity from prosecution.

  • Bolsonaro claims innocence and denies any wrongdoing related to the case, as well as the numerous investigations facing the former president.
