Clarence Thomas is yet again in the news and this time for a serious- absurd thing. He gave a finger to the court and blocked the Graham subpoena which was a completely absurd move. According to Harvard Law Professor Laurence Tribe, Clarence Thomas showed his contempt for the law despite the brief grant in the administrative stay.
Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is temporarily blocked. It is related to the order requiring Sen Lindsey Graham case who was expected to testify. The person was expected to testify before the Atlanta- area special grand jury. It was related to the investigation efforts to subvert the elections in Georgia during the 2020 presidential election.
Let’s take a deep dive into the case of Senator Lindsey Graham Who was asked on Friday in the Supreme Court to stay the lower court‘s order. It was done to force him to testify before a special grand jury to overturn the loss of former President Donald Trump‘s election in Georgia, the USA.
It’s Absurd That Clarence Thomas Rejected Graham’s Subpoena “Throwing The Finger To The Court” -Experts Says
Senator Lindsey Graham is a South Carolina Republican and a confidant of former president Donald J Trump. The person got into a protracted legal fight to defy a subpoena. He was required by him to answer questions before the special grand jury in Atlanta with dozens of witnesses that have already testified in the secret proceedings.
Many people tried unsuccessfully to avoid the travel to Atlanta for Donald Trump including Rudolph W and other lawyers. Nobody fought like Senator Lindsey Graham who has been in the league since July. Many constitutional issues arose during the hearings.
His justification was moved to the federal court system when he pointed out the Constitution‘s speech and debate clause that no congress member can be questioned on about the legislative duties.
It was later on Thursday that the US Court of Appeals rejected the argument of speech and debate clause. It was the 11th circuit in Atlanta that was taken away from Lindsey Graham. The speech and debate clause fully shielded Senator Lindsey Graham but it was taken away from the US Court of appeals.
Later Senator Lindsey Graham gave an emergency application on Friday. He asked the Supreme Court for a stay while he appeals the ruling. The emergency application also stated that if necessary there will be a ruling and joining the special grand jury from questioning him until the approval and resolution of the appeal. A fresh subpoena was issued on Friday for the same. The results will be on Nov 17 when Senator Lindsey Graham will testify about the same.
The lawyer wrote in the filing about Senator Lindsey Graham that without the stay, he will soon be questioned by the local Georgia prosecutor. It will also include her ad hoc investigative body.
The lawyer also mentioned protected speech or debate in the 2020 election-related matter. The conclusion also claimed how despite the Constitution‘s command that senators cannot be questioned about any speech or debate, Senator Lindsey Graham will be.
According to the reports, the prosecutors in Georgia want to know about the calls that the Senator made to Georgia’s secretary of state, Brad Raffensperger. It was only after the 2020 election, that also reported that Mr. Lindsey Graham questioned the secretary and how he should re-examine some of the absentee ballots cast in Georgia.
Senator Lindsey Graham wanted everything in favor of former President Donald Trump but that didn’t go well. Let’s see what the day, November 17 brings to the table!
