This is not good.

During a recent speech on the Senate floor, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell suggested that Democrats are pushing to take over the Supreme Court and warned that they “are trying to openly bully” Justice Clarence Thomas into recusing himself.

According to Newsmax, McConnell said, “All nine justices deserve total independence as they approach every judicial decision they make. This clumsy bullying from the political branches is really beyond the pale.”

McConnell further stated, “Justice Thomas is exemplary jurist, who holds model fidelity to the rule of law for more than 30 years and counting. I hope that all of these justices don’t give any of the radical left’s various pressure campaigns a minute’s thought.”

McConnell then blasted the Democrats and accused them of going off the rails by creating a “maximum pressure campaign” on America’s Supreme Court Justices.

Democrats find particular issue with Justice Clarence Thomas who happens to be an African American judge who hold conservative values.

“This time it’s a coordinated effort to nullify the presence of Justice Clarence Thomas on the court. The far left wants another crack at what they tried and failed to do way back in 1991,” McConnell further explained.
