There has never been a fighter on the Supreme Court quite like Clarence Thomas.
He has been steadfast with his conservative values since the day he got on the court.
That’s why the Supreme Court may never be the same after this news about Clarence Thomas just dropped.
For decades, Clarence Thomas has stayed on the Supreme Court with a record as conservative as you can get.
While Justices like John Roberts continue to shift to the Left, Thomas stays at the same spot he was the day he first joined the court.
But his time on the court could be coming to an end due to rumors about his retirement.
There are reports that both Thomas, and fellow conservative Judge Samuel Alito could retire soon.
While there is no set date on when this could happen, it is speculated that President Trump is preparing for this.
The Washington Post’s Robert Costa first made these claims, and alleges that it is Thomas who Trump officials believe is most likely to retire first.
Costa writes, “Justice Clarence Thomas, a conservative appointed by George H.W. Bush, is privately seen by Trump’s aides as the most likely to retire this year. While Thomas has not given any indication of doing so, the White House and Senate Republicans are quietly preparing for a possible opening, according to a White House official and two outside Trump political advisers who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the private conversations.”
But while these Washington Post claims are that Thomas will retire first, conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt told the Washington Examiner that he believes it will be Alito who retires first.
None of these claims are far-fetched, as Alito is 70 years old, while Thomas is 72 years old.
They have both held solid conservative records since joining the court.
If they were to retire before the November election, it would become a huge issue for President Trump on the campaign trail.
Trump has won major victories on the Supreme Court.
But he has also faced major losses, especially following a recent betrayal from the Trump-appointed Justice Neil Gorsuch.
If they were to retire, and Trump ended up losing the election, the Justices that Joe Biden would appoint would be disastrous for the country.
