Delayed Financial Disclosure for US Supreme Court’s Thomas Released

Clarence Thomas, the conservative U.S. Supreme Court justice who has faced scrutiny after revelations of luxury trips paid for by a wealthy benefactor, released his annual financial disclosure report on Thursday.

Thomas had been granted an extension to file his mandatory reports of any outside income and gifts received in 2022, as required for certain senior government officials. Disclosures by the other seven justices were publicly released in June.

The report shows that Thomas and his wife, Ginni Thomas, earned a combined income of over $800,000 in 2022. Thomas’s salary as a justice is $260,000, and his wife earns money from her own consulting firm.

The report also shows that Thomas received a number of gifts from various sources, including a hunting trip to Wyoming from the CEO of a conservative legal group, a stay at a luxury resort in Aspen, Colorado, from a wealthy Republican donor, and tickets to a college football game from a law firm that has argued cases before the Supreme Court.

The report does not specify the value of any of the gifts.

Thomas’s financial disclosures have come under scrutiny in recent months after it was revealed that he had accepted numerous trips and other gifts from Sidney Powell, a lawyer who promoted baseless claims of election fraud after the 2020 presidential election.

Powell is a close friend of Ginni Thomas, and her husband has recused himself from cases involving her.

The release of Thomas’s financial disclosure report is likely to further fuel calls for him to resign from the Supreme Court.
