Clarence Thomas Whines That His Power Would be Diluted if More Judges Were Added to SCOTUS

Since assuming office in 1991, Clarence Thomas has been one of the most partisan judges on the Supreme Court. In addition, his wife Ginni is an outspoken conservative activist. Despite this, the judge recently spoke of wanting to prevent the court from becoming more politicized. During a recent event hosted by Orrin Hatch’s foundation, Thomas discussed cancel culture and the possibility of court-packing.
