bad to worse

Ginni Thomas’ week is off to a terrible start and it’s only Monday

More bad news for the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.

Last week, text messages obtained by Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward and CBS News correspondent Robert Costa showed Ginni Thomas repeatedly pestered ex-White House chief of staff Mark Meadows about overturning Biden’s victory in the weeks after the 2020 presidential election.

Now, it’s looking increasingly likely that she is going to be called to testify before the January 6 committee. CNN reports:

Following the revelation of Virginia “Ginni” Thomas’ text messages with then-White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, most members of the House select committee investigating January 6 — including chair Bennie Thompson and vice chair Liz Cheney — believe the panel should interview her, multiple sources familiar with the investigation told CNN.

Yesterday, Adam Kinzinger, one of two Republican members on the committee, vowed to “get to the bottom” of what happened in the lead up to the insurrection.

“The question for the committee in this or any exchange is ‘was there a conspiracy, or how close did we get to overturning the election?'” he told CBS’s Face the Nation. “We’ll call in whoever we need to call in.”

Kinzinger went on to say, “Was there an effort to overturn the legitimate election of the United States? What was January 6 in relation to that? And what is the rot in our system that led to that and does it still exist today?”

“We are going to get to the bottom of this.”

Meanwhile, Amy Klobuchar, chairwoman of the Senate rules committee and a member of the Senate judiciary committee, called on Justice Clarence Thomas to be removed from any Supreme Court cases pertaining to the insurrection.

“This is unbelievable,” she told ABC’s This Week over the weekend. “You have the wife of a sitting Supreme Court justice advocating for an insurrection, advocating for overturning a legal election, to the sitting president’s chief of staff. And she also knows this election, these cases, are going to come before her husband. This is a textbook case for removing him, recusing him, from these decisions.”

Klobuchar also called out the Supreme Court for not putting out a statement on the matter, saying, “All I hear is silence from the Supreme Court right now. And that better change in the coming week because every other federal judge in the country except Supreme Court justices would have guidance from ethics rules that says you got to recuse.”

“The entire integrity of the court is on the line here.”

In a recent interview with the Washington Free Beacon, Ginni insisted that she and her husband have their “own separate careers, and our own ideas and opinions too” and that her extreme right-wing activism has absolutely no influence on his Supreme Court rulings.

“Clarence doesn’t discuss his work with me, and I don’t involve him in my work,” she affirmed.

In January, the Supreme Court rejected Trump’s bid to block the release of certain presidential records requested by the January 6 committee. Thomas was the only one of the nine justices who dissented. He provided no explanation for why he would have approved Trump’s request to withhold potential evidence.

Now, here’s what folx are saying on Twitter…
