Mother Jones has quite a scoop on Clarence Thomas:
Roughly 20 percent of the clerks Clarence Thomas has hired since his confirmation in 1991 are either now working as political appointees in the Trump administration or have been appointed by Trump to federal judgeships. https://t.co/69dPduXJLG

But the court’s only African-American justice is having an outsize influence in one important sphere: the Trump administration. A new report by the AP’s Mark Sherman indicates that roughly 20 percent of the clerks—a total of 22—Thomas has hired since his confirmation in 1991 are either now working as political appointees in the administration or have been appointed by Trump to federal judgeships.
