Clarence Thomas on Rumors Gorsuch Has ‘Ruffled Feathers’: ‘I Have No Idea What They Are Talking About’


Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas told Fox News host Laura Ingraham on Wednesday night that he has no idea what people are talking about in regards to negative rumors about his Supreme Court colleague Neil Gorsuch.

In a rare interview with Thomas, Ingraham mentioned there have been rumors about Gorsuch, who was nominated by President Donald Trump and confirmed by the Senate earlier this year. Ingraham asked whether reports that the junior justice has "ruffled some feathers at the court" were accurate.

"Well, it's good I don't have any feathers, so I'm certainly not a part of that," Thomas joked.

"He is a good man and I have no idea what they are talking about," he said. "Years ago, I heard reports that Justice [Antonin] Scalia was tossing things and slamming doors."

"I never saw that," Ingraham said.

"I never did either and I was next door to him, so I said, ‘are you holding back when I'm here? Because I hear you're doing all these things,'" Thomas said. "People have to say what they have to say. I don't see all those things."

Ingraham served as a law clerk to Thomas in 1992 after she graduated from law school at the University of Virginia.
