Ginni Thomas Tells Jan. 6 Committee She Still Believes 2020 Election Was Stolen

HeadlineSep 30, 2022

The House January 6 committee has interviewed far-right activist Ginni Thomas about her efforts to help Donald Trump overturn his 2020 election defeat to Joe Biden. On Thursday, Ginni Thomas spent more than four hours testifying to lawmakers behind closed doors on Capitol Hill. Committee Chair Bennie Thompson said afterward that Thomas had repeated her false claims about a stolen election, while denying she’d discussed her efforts to overturn Biden’s win with her husband, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Justice Thomas is the only member of the court who dissented in the Supreme Court’s 8-1 decision that led to the release of White House documents around January 6. Justice Thomas refused to recuse himself in the case, leading many Democrats to call for his impeachment.
