Impeach Clarence Thomas

Clarence Thomas, for the past 20 years has checked "None" under"Spouse's Non-Investment Income" on his financial disclosure forms.

We now know, was untrue. The law that is the basis for the disclosure form, includes reference to possible criminal penalties under 18 U.S. Code. Common cause discovered Thomas' wife, had,in fact, made more than $600,000 from the right wing organization,

Under Title 18, United States Code, Section 1001, it is a crime to knowingly and willfully;

make any materially false, fictitious or fraudulent statement or representation;in any matter within the jurisdiction of the executive,
legislative or judicial branch of the United States.

Violations are punishable by a fine and 5 to 8 years in prison.
Thomas could be charged with separate counts for each year he falsely
stated that his wife had no "Non Investment Income.

The Department of Justice publishes a handbook to provide guidance to
prosecutors. The handbook details the history of 18 USC 1001 and
states as follows:

Amended - 1001 will thus reach those documents that have most often been the subject of congressional false statement prosecutions, such
as vouchers, payroll documents, and Ethics in Government Act (EIGA)
financial disclosure forms

Clarence Thomas' time has come. As a criminal defense attorney, I would have a hard time saying that he did not knowingly and wilfully make false statements when he said his wife did not receive any "Non Investment Income" year after year when she was getting over $100K a
year.--Alaska Dave.

Impeach this worthless supreme, Clarence Thomas. He has a made a joke out of the Supreme Court.

Couldn't agree more. Unlikely though.

Perhaps not. A POE attorney is trying to disbar Thomas in Missouri. If the justice department went after Thomas and got him convicted for a felony, he would be forced to resign.

Will Obama play handball with Thomas? We hope so.
