Capitol riot exploitation committee asks Ginni Thomas to testify

“The Jan. 6 committee has invited Virginia ‘Ginni’ Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, to testify about her connections to Donald Trump’s attempts to overturn the election, panel chair Rep. Bennie Thompson told reporters Thursday. ‘We have sent Ms. Thomas a letter asking [her] to come and talk to the committee,’ Thompson (D-Miss.) said. … Thompson’s remarks and Cheney’s agreement — confirmed to POLITICO by an aide — coincided with news reports suggesting Thomas had been in touch with at least one key architect of Trump’s bid to cling to power: Attorney John Eastman. The emails might come up ‘at some point’ in their hearings, Thompson said earlier Thursday, though they were still in the ‘discovery phase.’ Thomas told the conservative-leaning Daily Caller later Thursday she was open to testifying.” (06/16/22)
