"When you lose that trust, especially in the institution that I'm in, it changes the institution fundamentally," the Supreme Court justice said Friday.
The Court's longest-serving member appeared to defend the decision not to hold hearings for Merrick Garland in 2016.
Much of the black Democratic leadership in this country has been on a 40-year crusade to destroy Justice Clarence Thomas.
A civil rights leader said describing Clarence Thomas' treatment as "lynching" insults the thousands of Black people who were lynched.
Voting for the Court to hear a case involving a conflict between the central authorities of the branches of the government has everything to do with Thomas fulfilling his judicial duty—and nothing to do with his wife.
Almost half of the Americans surveyed said the views and political activity of his wife—Ginni Thomas—posed an ethical problem for the justice.
Leftist outrage about the Thomases has nothing to do with Ginni's alleged indiscretions or even whether it ought to be acceptable for a sitting justice to have a spouse who is a political activist.
"All I want is a tidal wave of biblical vengeance to wash away the Biden crime family all the way to Gitmo and then we release the Kraken."
Released Friday, it warns that January 6 investigators can't do their job if Justice Thomas is using his seat to "protect this wife."
The conservative activist "would flatter" the former president, the ex-White House press secretary said.
A consortium of advocacy groups say it's time for Congress to investigate if Justice Clarence Thomas violated ethics laws.

The senior SCOTUS justice has faced calls to recuse himself after text messages sent from his wife revealed support for efforts to overturn the 2020 election results.
Nancy Pelosi, Dick Durbin and Chuck Schumer are just a few of the Democrats calling for Justice Clarence Thomas to recuse himself from January 6 cases.
The congresswoman said that the Supreme Court justice should resign to avoid potential impeachment regarding his stance on the January 6 investigation.
Durbin told The Hill that the situation involving Thomas' wife "really creates an obvious conflict" for him on cases related to the Capitol insurrection.
"It just seems a little strange to me all of these calls for her husband to be what, like, minding her better?" Hawley said.
The former U.S. Army prosecutor also said she "needs to be investigated by the Department of Justice."
"This does raise real questions about the need for Justice Thomas to recuse from future cases related to the Jan. 6 insurrection," said a conservative legal expert.
"These revelations are truly shocking and proof positive that we need a code of ethics for the United States Supreme Court," Senator Richard Blulmenthal said.
