Clarence Thomas Says Washington DC Is 'Broken'

Thomas opened up about his views at event held in his honor.

Justice Thomas, who rarely speaks from the bench, admitted there are some opinions that he has struggled with, "cases where your heart goes one way but you have got to stick with the law, those are really hard opinions. I think those are the ones you think a lot about," he said. "Those are ones where your hair begins to fall out."

Throughout the evening, Thomas talked about his passion to make his opinions understandable. "I think we're obligated to make the constitution and what we write about the Constitution accessible to our fellow citizens. That empowers people by giving them a sense of the Constitution."
