WASHINGTON, D.C.—  Stand Up America Executive Director Christina Harvey issued the following statement in response to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’ unilateral decision to halt a lower court order compelling U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham to testify in the Georgia election inquiry:

“Once again, Justice Thomas is attempting to throw up a roadblock to investigations into the criminal conspiracy to overthrow the 2020 election. His refusal to recuse himself from these cases, despite his own wife’s role as a co-conspirator, is an affront to justice and our democracy. 

“It’s no wonder that Americans’ trust in the Supreme Court is at a record low. If the Court is to ever restore its credibility, it must be held to the same ethical standards as lower courts and four seats must be added to counterbalance the power of shameless, unethical partisans like Justice Thomas.”
