Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas Had $267,000 Loan Forgiven By Wealthy Friend
Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has come under further scrutiny this week after Senate Finance Committee Chairman Ron Wyden (D-Oregon) revealed that documents given to the committee showed that Thomas profited from the majority or all of the $267,000 loan forgiven to buy his luxury RV by a wealthy friend.
Thomas is currently under scrutiny for allegedly concealing numerous gifts and vacations.
The justice took at least 38 vacations, 26 private jet flights, eight helicopter flights and dozens of sports passes without reporting them as required by law.
The trips included luxury vacations to Florida and Jamaica.
