Sen. Lee dismantles the left’s intimidation campaign against the Supreme Court

Sen.  Mike Lee (R-UT) delivered a powerful speech during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, lamenting the baseless attacks against Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.

In his remarks, Sen. Lee said, “The Left simply cannot accept the fact that one of our greatest American success stories—that of a humble citizen who rose from poverty in the segregated South to become not only one of the Supreme Court’s longest-serving justices, but also one of the most influential jurists our country has ever known—is the story of a Black man who happens to be a conservative.

The attacks against Justice Thomas and other Republican-appointed justices on the Supreme Court have escalated following the leak of the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization opinion. The leak led to increased levels of intimidation and harassment against these justices, including death threats and personal attacks.
