It's not just Thomas

Just to add to this, Amy Coney Barrett should also recuse herself in any case involving the January 6th insurrection. When Justice Barrett was appointed, Trump openly stated that Barrett needed to be confirmed quickly so he would have a vote to overturn the presidential election. ("We need nine justices. You need that, with the unsolicited millions of ballots that they’re sending.") I think that is pretty clearly enough to reasonably question her impartiality on an attempt to overturn that very same election.

I do not expect Justice Barrett to recuse either (she certainly hasn't in the 1/6 cases that have reached the Court already).
