Peter Strzok, the former Deputy Assistant Director of the FBI's Counterintelligence Division, said that there is no way that Justice Clarence Thomas should have any role in deciding anything involving the 2020 election.
Speaking to Strzok and John Heilemann, MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace explained that Thomas is the one who saved Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) from a subpoena about his role in attempting to get the vote count changed in Georgia. Graham was subpoenaed by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, but the senator is desperately fighting not to give testimony under oath. He hasn't clarified why other than he doesn't think he should have to because he was only making the calls as part of his own research on voting to certify the election on Jan. 6.
"These stories are so provocative, I guess, because John Roberts would have you believe he cares," said Wallace. "He cares that in the Gallup poll the Supreme Court has plunged over 20, 25 points."
Roberts has actually made it clear that he doesn't understand why people hate the court and why they're questioning the legitimacy of the court.
“Yes, all of our opinions are open to criticism. In fact, our members do a great job of criticizing some opinions from time to time," Robert said in Sept. 2022 at a judicial conference. "But simply because people disagree with an opinion is not a basis for criticizing the legitimacy of the Court.”
One of the main complaints began when Republicans stole a seat from President Barack Obama after Antonin Scalia died suddenly. Republicans refused to fill the seat for nearly a year, saying Americans deserved to vote for who they wanted to hire as the next justice. But when Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died, Republicans refused to allow Americans the right to vote for who they wanted to replace the justice.
"And yet today Clarence Thomas, whose wife doesn't lie about still believing that Donald Trump should be reinstated, should be the president and that Joe Biden stole the election, he's deciding cases involving an investigation into just that."
