  • Clinton went to law school with Thomas and said he is full of ‘grit, grudge and anger’
  • Conservative justice sided with the majority who quashed the historic Roe v. Wade abortion case on Friday

Hillary Clinton said in an interview Tuesday morning that as long as she knows Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, he will be filled with “resentment” and “anger” as she insisted the Roe v. Wade ruling will cause women to die.

‘I studied law with’ [Justice Thomas]Clinton told CBS Mornings in a pre-recorded interview. “He’s been a person of resentment for as long as I’ve known him — resentment, resentment, anger.”

The failed 2016 Democratic presidential nominee said Thomas has “signed off” to lower courts and state lawmakers that they must “find cases, pass laws, stand up” to limit abortion, birth control rights and same-sex marriage.

Clinton said people who are “right-wing” and “very conservative” pay attention to Judge Thomas when it comes to these issues and the potential risk of their overthrow.

Her response comes after Friday’s sweeping Supreme Court ruling that ended 50 years of precedent set by the landmark Roe v. Wade abortion case.

“It’s true, there are so many things that are deeply disturbing, but women will die, Gayle,” Clinton said.

She insisted, “Women will die.

The case before the Supreme Court was Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which sought to challenge a Mississippi law banning abortion after 15 weeks. The law was upheld by the court in a conservative 6-3 majority position.

Thomas, one of the most conservative members of the Supreme Court, said in interviews published in a new book that he wasn’t sure why he was nominated for the Supreme Court — and “celebrated not being nominated” when he thought President George HW Bush had skipped him.

“I have no idea why or how I was nominated,” Thomas says, according to the book Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words, which came out earlier this month.

Thomas admitted he “hadn’t thought about the abortion issue” ahead of his confirmation hearings in 1991.

Thomas went a step further from his conservative cohorts on Friday by submitting a concurring opinion, suggesting that cases legalizing birth control and same-sex marriage should also be given a different view from the court.

Created Equal was an accompanying project to a documentary about Thomas released in 2020 by filmmaker Michael Pack, who headed the US Agency for Global Media under former President Donald Trump, and Mark Paoletta, a lawyer who worked alongside Thomas during his confirmation.

Pack interviewed Thomas for over 30 hours between November 2017 and March 2018, which became the basis for the film and then the book.

Thomas made it clear to Pack that he wasn’t excited to be nominated in court — nor had he given much thought to the abortion issue that would come up in his confirmation hearings.

Since Friday’s ruling, pro and anti-abortion protesters have been placed outside the Supreme Court building in Washington, D.C.

Thirteen states had so-called “trigger laws” that immediately made abortion illegal with the nullification of Roe v. Wade.
