Ginni Thomas Agrees to Be Questioned by Jan. 6 Committee

HeadlineSep 22, 2022

The House select committee investigating the January 6 Capitol insurrection says it’s reached an agreement with Ginni Thomas — a far-right activist and wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas — to have her testify. In the weeks following the November 2020 election, Ginni Thomas sent a flurry of text messages to Trump’s chief of staff, Mark Meadows, urging him to take action to prevent a Biden victory. The messages included conspiracy theories popularized by the far-right QAnon movement. Thomas also attended the so-called Stop the Steal rally in Washington, D.C., that preceded the January 6 assault on Congress, and she lobbied dozens of Republican lawmakers in Wisconsin and Arizona to overturn Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory. The House committee is expected to hold its last public hearing on Wednesday, September 28.
