Thomas reports private jet ride, meals from billionaire benefactor Harlan Crow
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, new 2022 disclosures from Supreme Court Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito were made public after both requested deadline extensions. The filings reveal even more of the shady dealings and cozy billionaire relationships that have led to a full blown Supreme Court corruption crisis, which has caused public confidence in our nation’s highest court to hit record lows.
It’s no surprise that Justice Thomas has kept up his decades-long cozy relationship with billionaire benefactor Harlan Crow with even more lavish jet rides and vacation reimbursements. For years, Thomas has used his position on our nation’s highest court as a way to upgrade his own lifestyle — and that hasn’t stopped,” said Accountable.US senior advisor Kyle Herrig.
“It was Justice Thomas’s own decades-long improper financial relationship with Harlan Crow that sparked the Supreme Court corruption crisis in the first place — and that was clearly just the tip of the iceberg. Harlan Crow, Justice Thomas, Leonard Leo, and other key players in the growing Supreme Court corruption crisis may believe they exist above the law, but they don’t. We need accountability and reform now,” Herrig added.
