Clarence Thomas Says Claims of Yacht Trip Never Happened

An attack by ProPublica against Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is based on a trip that never happened, a source close to the justice claims.

Thomas spoke out on the report after it was released last week.

“ProPublica’s claim that Justice Thomas was a passenger on any yacht owned by Tony Novelly, including the Le Montrachet, is completely false,” Mark Paoletta, a Schaerr Jaffe law firm partner told the Daily Caller News Foundation.

“He has never ever laid eyes on this boat. Moreover, Justice Thomas has never been in the Bahamas with Tony Novelly," he added.

The searing ProPublica report included numerous accusations, including at least one that is reportedly completely false.

"Island-hopping on a superyacht. Private jet rides around the world. The undisclosed gifts to Thomas have no known precedent in the modern history of the Supreme Court," ProPublica tweeted.

“It’s incomprehensible to me that someone would do this,” says one former judge in the report.

Thomas has been the source of numerous attacks by the left in recent months in its efforts to change the conservative majority among the Supreme Court's justices.

So far, none of the attacks have led to action, with many accusations either lacking evidence or not being in violation of any particular law or regulation.

The latest claim about a yacht voyage is especially concerning. It appears the report is fictitious in another hole against the attacks to take down the court's longtime conservative voice.
