Racist texts came from Crystal Clanton's phone. Now she's on the fast track to a Supreme Court clerkship, and her supporters say the texts are phony. You be the judge.

In whhich @mrddmia , Justice Gorsuch's former law clerk, practices Gorsuchian "civility."

And these leftwing partisan hacks masquerading as “journalists”— like @RuthMarcus , @NinaTotenberg , and @mjs_DC —are all spinning it as if Sotomayor walked down to the robing room, saw Gorsuch without his mask, and then walked back up to her chambers to do arguments. 100% false.

Neil Gorsuch 2019: "Without civility, the bonds of friendship in our communities dissolve, tolerance dissipates...Self-governance turns on our treating each other as equals — as persons, with the courtesy and respect each person deserves." Neil Gorsuch 2022: Never mind.

Nina Totenberg reports that (1) the Chief Justice asked his colleagues to mask up out of respect for Sotomayor’s health concerns, (2) only Gorsuch refused, and (3) his refusal forced Sotomayor to participate in arguments and conference remotely.

The Gorsuch transcript updated to show him saying "hundreds, thousands" dying from flu every year. Not hundreds of thousands, as I heard. I stand corrected, as does the transcript.

NEW: in Friday's transcript of the OSHA vaccine rule oral argument, Justice Gorsuch was recorded as claiming (erroneously) that "hundreds of thousands" die yearly from the flu. That transcript has been corrected to show "hundreds, thousands", which is consistent with the audio.
