Fresh update on "justice clarence thomas" discussed on WTOP 24 Hour News

"Committee has said they've been working behind the scenes through the summer. Continuing their investigation, depositions collecting more paper. This is a committee that's already done. Hundreds of depositions and collected tens of thousands of pieces of paper. The chairman of the committee says it's likely all 9 members or many of the 9 members will be part of a presentation and that's noteworthy because we don't see a witness list. It's possible they're just going to be showing more of their work, showing more of their findings versus having witnesses there and querying them and trying to elicit new answers. And it won't be the last hearing, right, Scott with this entire process. It's hard to know. This committee keeps moving the goal post on us. It's possible, but it's not certain. And you'll recall this summer. They sprung a last minute hearing that wasn't expected when Cassidy Hutchinson had agreed to testify. The committee is also said they have a written report coming after the hearings, which is kind of their definitive report. Actually, the law through which this committee was created requires a written final report. That will likely happen early December. We also learned earlier this week that Ginny Thomas will reportedly speak with the committee, how big of a deal is that? The committee chairman would ask what he hopes to hear from Jenny Thomas. He said, quote, everything she knows. The committee has been unambiguous about this. They've had an interest in speaking with the wife of Supreme Court Justice clarence Thomas for quite some time now. Including about text messages she sent to former Trump chief of staff Mark Meadows, urging a fight against the results of the 2020 election or to take up an effort to challenge the results of the 2020 election. Her defense lawyer tells us that Jenny Thomas has agreed to a voluntary interview. It's worth underscoring. There was no subpoena here. This is something Jenny Thomas is doing voluntarily. But time's running short, they don't expect to have that interview before Wednesday's hearing. And this committee expires at the end of this calendar year. It's got the criminal trials from the capitol riot attacks are continuing in another big one starts on Tuesday. What are we expecting there? That's the oath keepers, seditious conspiracy case, the top line highest level case so far, including that of oath keepers founder Stewart roads, trials, Tuesday morning, jury selection here at the federal court near Capitol Hill. We expect based on what we heard in court this week during the pretrial hearings and some of these defendants, if not most of these are going to argue about the insurrection act, the possibility, at least in their minds that the former president would invoke the insurrection act, therefore laying the groundwork for what are accused of doing and what they're accused of doing is striking, coming to Washington, D.C., prepared for possible action and staging firearms at a hotel in Boston, Virginia outside the city limits. This is going to be a spectacle and possibly a monthlong trial.

The Vilification of Successful Black Men With Dr. Ben Carson

"Of speaking with justice clarence Thomas at some point earlier this year and it's just an amazing thing to hear how he bought in to the angry black man ideology until he woke up to the truth and we just see the astonishing accomplishments that he has made just a hero and yet he like you is mostly vilified in the mainstream media and by the Democratic Party as somehow getting it wrong. I mean, it's just fascinating to me that you could be one of the greatest surgeons in the world. You could be in the cabinet of the president of the United States. You could be a Supreme Court Justice. It's just amazing that the two of you, for example, who have been such a so dramatically successful, would be vilified. What do you think is behind that? Who is behind that? Well, you know, I grew up in Detroit, a very liberal place. And Boston a very liberal place. Went to New Haven, a very little place, and then Ann Arbor, very liberal place, and in Baltimore, very little place. So I was a very liberal individual. Until I did something that the liberal has never supposed to do. I listened to a conservative, I listened to Ronald Reagan. And I said, this guy sounds just like my mother. He's saying exactly the same stuff the same philosophy. And I started really examining my belief system. I was noticing that so many of the patients that I was seeing at each Baltimore. Were dependent on the government. They were perfectly able bodied people. I said, this is wrong. And there is a system that is absolutely deleterious to the aspirations of these people. And that's really when I started making a significant change. Once the media for whom I was a darling discovered that I had made that change and now I was a conservative has evil. He's an evil person. He's a terrible, terrible person. Because they don't want the narrative of self reliance out there.

We are seeing outbreaks that are out of control in many, many parts of the world. And it's very important that we get our arms around this. In the U.S., right now, we're looking at public health emergency as something that HHS might invoke. But it really depends on what does that allow us to do.

Clarence Thomas is the individual that we had hoped would be able to write this decision. We anticipated a majority victory here of 6 three. We anticipated that. We have felt that Roberts may be a little wishy washy, which is why the court didn't take a case over the last ten years. Now that the court thank God for Donald Trump has a conservative majority, we felt very confident that Roberts would rule our way in this New York

"And we are so delighted to have in studio. The makers of a film that we have the poster of in our offices that we discussed when it came out. And now the co author of the book that celebrates that movie and that man, of course he is the great associate justice clarence Thomas, and the book is his life story created equal and we have in studio with us the filmmaker, the co author Michael pack and Mark pauletta. Welcome to America first. Thank you. Thanks for having us. Let's just have a reaction to last week's news. I can't stop smiling since then. It's like a rictus grin. It's involuntary. I think the left totally miscalculated with that leak. As we had Kevin Roberts in studio on Friday is constitutional experts have said to me, perhaps the most important decision of the courts history. Michael. Absolutely. I think you were right, sab to put the emphasis on preserving the constitution. I mean, these things are not about whether abortion is good or bad. It's about whether there's a constitutional right to abortion. If people had to watch their movie, they would have been and now if they read the book, they would not be surprised at clarence Thomas's decision. He's been very consistent. And we call our book created equal because it comes out of his lifelong dedication to the principles of the declaration and the constitution, which those principles underlie. And you see both in the book and the film to come out of his very dramatic life story coming from poverty in the Deep South against many struggles to the highest court in the land, not least of which the opposition of the left, everything he's done, now so it is not surprising that that continues today.

Clinton: Justice Thomas Is a Person of 'Resentment, Grievance, Anger'

"Justice clarence Thomas. The black Supreme Court Justice now, by the way, she's not upset at Sam Alito, who wrote the opinion, right? The white guy. No, no, no, no, no, no. She's upset with the black guy. Justice Thomas has sort of floated that out there about contraceptive rights. Contraception. And about same sex marriages. But other justices have pushed back to say, no, he's really sort of on his own with that. Well, he believes that? Well, he may be on his own, but he's signaling as he often did. I went to law school with him. He's been a person of grievance for as long as I've known him. Resentment, grievance, anger. And he has signaled in the past to lower courts to state legislatures, but find cases pass laws get them up. I may not win the first, the second or the third time, but we're going to keep at it. So you're saying people pay attention to the people he is speaking to, which is the right wing very conservative judges and justices and state legislatures. And the thing that is, well, there's so many things about it that are deeply distressing. But women are going to die, Gayle, women will die. Women will die. Well, only if they're connected to

"At least a possibility. The difficulty is that that would take 60 votes in the Senate to overcome a filibuster. Right. Or one of the two democratic senators who have made clear that they don't want to change the filibuster, Joe Manchin and Christian cinema, would have to both change their mind on that. And that seems unlikely. I think it's actually more likely if there is to be national legislation that the next time we have a Republican Congress and a Republican president, we might see a national abortion ban in which case, abortion would be illegal, not just in those states that forbid it, but throughout everywhere states like New York, California. Wow. We have so much to figure out here. The president and speaker Pelosi have suggested that this opens the door could set precedent to overturn other rights, same sex marriage, a contraception even. Is that an extreme view, Michael, or is that in fact possible? Justice clarence Thomas wrote a concurrence in the case saying that he would like to do exactly that. He says that the constitutional rubric under which the court had recognized the right to abortion, what is sometimes called substantive due process. Should be abandoned across the board. And he singled out the court's rulings that protected a right to same sex sexual relations, the same sex marriage, to contraception. He left open the possibility that in his view, those rights might be protected under some other provisions. That seems very unlikely. I should say just as Alito in his majority opinion says that you don't need to worry about that. He doesn't intend to do that, that that's different. But as the dissenters point out and as I think the logic of justice Thomas concurrence says, it's not clear that he'll hold that line. So I think there will be a concerted effort, at least to bring to the court cases that provide the possibility of overturning those other rights. If I had to bet, I would say they won't do it. But it's not because it doesn't follow logically from the opinion. But it's not a false conversation for us to have right now though. Correct. Last minute here, Michael, I really appreciate your expertise as we hear from Democrats about moving forward with legislation. How would that look? We understand that this could be tied up in court. What is the legislative answer to this if Democrats have the numbers? Well, of course, at the state level, it's the abortion right is already protected for the most. Yeah, how about in Congress? Right. So Congress would have to pass a law. As I said, it would have to, this is not a budget bill. So it can't be done through the so called

"A lot of Americans are unmoored by today's decision allowing states to ban abortion. President Biden is deeply distressed by the Supreme Court ruling overturning roe V wade. They simply took it away. That's never been done to a right so important to so many Americans. CBS White House correspondent Steven portnoy joins us live. Steve good to have you back. Thank you so much. It's good to be with you, Sean and Hillary. What else did the president have to say today? Well, he says that the high court has made a tragic error. And he says that the conservatives on the court have taken the Supreme Court on an extreme and dangerous path and that they're taking the country along with it. That they are removed from the majority of the country. And in fact, when it comes to abortion rights, a CBS News poll taken recently. Shows that by a factor of two to one, Americans want it, roe versus wade kept in place. Only 35% said that they wanted the outcome that we saw today. The reversal of the 50 year old precedent that upheld the nationwide right to abortion. The president says that he is worried that this could lead to a reconsideration of a marriage equality of the right to contraception, and he noted that the conservative justice clarence Thomas essentially said as much in his concurring opinion today. Thomas essentially called on his colleagues to take up those questions next. How does the administration plan to deal with that at this point? Well, when it comes to abortion rights, the president said that there is not much that he can do as president from an executive action standpoint. He called on Congress to codify the right to abortion in federal law. He said that Americans will have the final word on this that personal freedoms are on the ballot this fall that abortion rights specifically are on the ballot. He did say his administration would stand for the right of women to travel. That that itself is a constitutional right. And that he called it a bedrock right. And that if any state official tried to interfere with that right to travel to a state where abortion remains legal, that would be a deeply un American attack. He also pointed to the fact that the FDA has approved contraception and the abortion pill and the press stone and he said that he would support Americans continued access to those prescription medications. But on the whole, he said it's up to the country to have the final word on this. Stephen good to have you. Thank you so much. CBS White House correspondent, Stephen portnoy.

"Breaking news on WTO. CBS News special report breaking news in the U.S. Senate minutes ago. These are 65, the nays are 33, the motion to control with an amendment is agreed to. And with that, landmark bipartisan gun control legislation heads to the U.S. House, the $13 billion measure would toughen background checks for the youngest gun buyers keep firearms from more domestic violence offenders and help states put in place red flag laws. It would also fund local programs for school safety, mental health and violence prevention. The vote on Capitol Hill comes on the same day that the U.S. Supreme Court has struck down a New York on law that could impact other states. CBS Skyler Henry reports. Majority opinion justice clarence Thomas wrote, the second and 14th amendments protect an individual's right to carry a handgun for self defense outside the home. Recapping the U.S. Senate passes bipartisan gun control legislation sending it to the house for a vote. CBS News special report, I'm Jennifer Kuiper. Let's get a few more details on that Supreme Court ruling that Jennifer Kuiper just mentioned in a major expansion of gun rights, the high bench, has ruled Americans do have a right to carry firearms in public for self defense. The court struck down a New York gun law in a decision expected to directly impact half a dozen other large states, including us here in Maryland. There's no right to carry a gun openly in New York. So the only way you could carry a gun outside the home legally in New York is to get a concealed carry permit. And you had some special need. And what the Supreme Court said is there's no other constitutional right that requires showing some special need to exercise it, not the First Amendment, not the Sixth Amendment right to confront your accuser in court. So that's not how the Second Amendment works. And for that reason, the New York law is unconstitutional. NBC News justice correspondent Pete Williams speaking with us earlier on WTO. Among those other states that could be impacted by the Supreme Court ruling, as we mentioned, Maryland, which has a similar gun requirement as New York. The attorney general Brian frosh says he's examining tonight's ruling, but he believes it will mean more people dying from gun violence. D.C.'s attorney general is reviewing the 135 page decision as well. And in the old dominion, a spokesperson for attorney general Jason meares tells WTO tonight, Virginia's concealed carry laws do not include what's known as the proper cause restriction that the Supreme Court today struck down as unconstitutional. As that legislation moves through the Senate and is now passed the Senate is onto the house. There's been a new plea for gun safety measures in response to the Texas school shooting. Texas lawmakers heard an impassioned plea from Jasmine caesares. She lost her 9 year old sister in the May 24th, rob elementary school massacre. And I'm here begging for you guys to do something. I'm going to change something because the people that were supposed to keep her safe at school didn't they failed. The police response to the school shooting is now the focus of federal state and local investigations. Jim crisilla CBS News. It was a shooting that sent shoppers at Tyson's corner center mall running last weekend. There's relief in the community tonight as we learn the accused godman, turned himself in. We also are learning what may have led to the gunfire. It was a beef between members of two D.C. street gangs according to police, a 37th street crew in the simple city crew.

So there's been two black people on the Supreme Court in our history. Thurgood Marshall, and clarence Thomas. There's also one currently serving clarence Thomas. But Politico, which again was the one that helped get Joe Biden got elected because they covered up the entire story with Russia, Russian disinformation, smoke screen, tweeted out the following, quote, katangi Brown Jackson will likely be confirmed as the first black Supreme Court Justice by the end of this week. Here's how we'll expect it to go. How these people went to college, which is exactly why they don't know anything. Kandy Brown Jackson will likely be confirmed as the first black Supreme Court Justice by the end of this week, Politico tweeted that out. They deleted the tweet and then tweeted this correction quote for the record. This replaces an earlier tweet that stated kanji Brown Jackson could be the first black Supreme Court Justice. It should have said first black female Supreme Court Justice we apologize for the error. I could have wrote that for them. We knew what was happening. Senator Mike Lee ripped them, play cut 22. Earlier today, there was a Politico tweet Politico sent out a tweet reading his follows, saying kitani Brown Jackson will likely be confirmed as the first black Supreme Court Justice by the end of this week. Here's how we expect it to go. Now, if that were true, that would come as news to the family of circuit Marshall. It would come as great news. The justice clarence Thomas, and his family. No kidding.

Ginni Thomas Texts Released While Husband Clarence in Hospital

"You're not going to convince probably 60% of Americans may be 70. That every vote was legitimately counted in November of 2020. So Ginny Thomas is not some lunatic fringe QAnon activist, but that's how they want to portray her because they did a big bombshell this week. A big, big reporting. Here's Bret baier over on Fox News with the reporting of The Washington Post story. That Bob Woodward of Watergate fame himself, Bob Woodward went to print yesterday and that's very important that you remember the timing of this leaked story. The text messages that Mark Meadows turned over to the January 6th witch hunt committee led by Liz Cheney and Adam kinzinger on the Republican side. Here's Brett Baer's reporting on this yesterday. Virginia Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice clarence Thomas, repeatedly pressed then White House chief of staff Mark Meadows to pursue efforts to overturn the 2020 election. That is according to text messages obtained by The Washington Post, came out tonight. The messages reveal a pipeline between Thomas and president Trump's top aide during a period when Trump the president at the time and his allies were vowing to go to the Supreme Court to negate the election results. The Washington Post is saying those text messages are among more than 2300 Meadows provided to the House select committee investigating the capitol riot on January 6th, justice Thomas, who is currently hospitalized, has not responded obviously to The Washington Post request for comment neither has his wife. Well, yeah, I'm sure he hasn't responded because he's in the hospital being treated for an undisclosed illness. He's been there nearly a week or more, sounds serious. Ginny Thomas is undoubtedly by her husband's side. Praying for his recovery. So she's a little busy, too.

Why Did Bob Woodward Pick THIS WEEK to Release Ginni Thomas' Texts?

"And when you wonder if you're on that right side of the ideological spectrum, let me share with you a couple prominent examples of something making news right now. Bob Woodward of The Washington Post decided this week, it was good timing to write a story about text messages that the wife of ailing Supreme Court Justice clarence Thomas apparently wrote to Trump chief of staff Mark Meadows. Now, these text messages were turned over by Mark Meadows to the January 6th committee at the end of last year, but this was the week they decided to run with the bombshell, the Ginny Thomas was urging Mark Meadows to fight back against to urging Trump to fight back against the outcome of the election. The only thing about clarence Thomas this week, have you read about him? You know where he is? He's in the hospital, and as I understand it, it's going on a week. And anybody who knows anything about hospitals, if you're in the hospital a week, that ain't a hangnail. I don't know what's wrong with him, apparently he's got a type of infection of some kind. It's unspecified, but he sounds like he's pretty sick. Think his wife is concerned about his about her husband right now? Think her wife is frantic? I think his wife is worried, stressed, but now she's got this to deal with because that's the point. It's how cruel they are. That's how vicious and mean spirited and cruel the Adam kinzinger is in the Liz Cheney's and the bob woodwards of the world are.

"The American public, but I believe that we can do it. Without a lockdown. I really do. I mean, sometimes when people talk about the measures that I'm suggesting we double down on the equivocate that to say that well that that makes that not a lockdown. Yeah. You know he's big on mass and all that, I think, Look, it fell. I feel like it goes against people constitutional rights to run their business and the survive and and I just I I've watched the signs go up all around me. But business is folding. That was crazy to me. I I agree. You know who else is wondering about? The constitutionality of it is Justice Clarence Thomas. He alluded to it the other day going. I'm not sure this is would pass the constitutional muster. So I mean, there are public health laws. But I I used this horrible example Leanna, But if they said the sewer plant, there's a problem.

"The dispute over coverage of women's access to birth control under the Affordable Care Act. As John Yang report, it's familiar ground for the justices. Judy. This was the third time the Supreme Court considered the question of whether some employers could opt out of the birth control coverage because of their beliefs. Marcia Coil is the chief Washington correspondent for the National Law Journal. Marsha. What did the court decide in this case today? John. The court has seven to ruling written by Justice Clarence Thomas. Decided that The Trump Administration had legal authority to issue rules. New rules. Actually, they date back to 2017 that expanded an exemption for religious groups. From the birth control coverage requirement. The expanded rules would allow religious objections as well as moral objections and would cover just about every non governmental employer in the United States. Allowing them to opt out of that coverage is well. So in this final two weeks, we now know is the final two weeks of this court's term. They've had three decisions dealing with religious freedom. This one today on birth control coverage. Another one today in which they said essentially that Church runs. Schools don't have to worry about anti discrimination claims when they deal with teachers who teach their faith on DH. Then last week, Ah decision in which they said that Montana could not exclude a school from a scholarship programs simply because that school was church run. So what does this tell us? Take these three things. Three decisions cases together. What does this tell us about where this court is on the question of religious freedom? John. I think it's a continuation of a trend in the Roberts court since at least 2005 when Chief Justice John Roberts took the middle seat on the bench. The court appears in most of its decisions to favor those who are claiming religious discrimination, either by a state statute like last week's decision or state constitution, like last week's decision in Montana or a CZ, the little Sisters of the poor case here involving the accommodation for religious and moral objections. So again, it is a continuation of a trend and if if the person bringing the case is claiming, in particular that his or her free exercise of religion under the First Amendment is being violated the court Appears to be favoring those claims with very strong belief in the free exercise clause of the First Amendment. A little personnel and medical call. Note. We learned that Chief Justice John Roberts 2.5 weeks ago was taken to the hospital after falling and Cutting his head. We this court on. Lee announced this because the Washington Post asked them after they got a tip about this. What do you make of this? It looks as though at least the court said that the chief justice was suffering from dehydration on any became dizzy and that's how he fell. I should say, too, that in 1993 I believe in 2007 He suffered a benign systemic strokes, which means there really was no reason for our seizures, not strokes, seizures that also caused him to fall and pass out and fall s O. We have to take the court at its word, and certainly the court was relaying whatever the chief Justice said was The cause of the problem, But it is unfortunate that it takes a tip to a newspaper, which then has to go to the courts Information office to find out something as important as a justice going to the hospital. March, a coil of the National Law journal. Thanks so much. My pleasure, John. It may not be quite the rush to stake a claim that drove old prospectors into.
