    Thomas and that is why there was no move in the House on impeachment procedings. House Democrats understood that Mrs. Thomas represented organizations who had no direct part in the Citizen's United litigation. While those organizations may have had a benefit from CU, that has never been a standard that required recusal. Many federal judges have failed to file disclosure forms, filed them late, and filed them with errors. In each case where the forms were the only transgression judnes were simply asked to file accurate amended forms, which is what Justice Thomas did. There is no legal consensus that Justices of the SCOTUS even have to file the forms. In addition, the DC press widely reported the names of Mrs. Thomas' clients and none of them had cases before the Court while she was employed by them.
