Congressional Democrats are urging Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas to recuse himself from ruling on whether former President Donald Trump can claim immunity from prosecution related to his efforts to overturn the 2020 election.

They cite concerns about Thomas’ impartiality due to his wife’s involvement in the election subversion plot and his own ethical lapses.

“No proceeding could be graver than the prosecution of an attempt to undermine our sacred electoral process. Justice will be done only if such a case is heard by judges whose impartiality cannot reasonably be questioned,” Sen. Richard Blumenthal wrote.

Trump’s request to delay trial proceedings is seen as a stall tactic, as he faces criminal charges for his actions during and after the 2020 election.

“There are so many unanswered questions about the relationship of the justice and his family with the Trump administration that I think in the interests of justice, he should recuse himself,” Senate judiciary committee Chairman Dick Durbin said.

The federal judge presiding over the case rejected Trump’s claim of absolute immunity for federal crimes committed while in office.

“The court cannot conclude that our Constitution cloaks former Presidents with absolute immunity for any federal crimes they committed while in office,” U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan wrote.
