The January 6 committee investigating the lethal assault on the Capitol is reportedly deciding whether or not to interview Ginni Thomas — the Republican activist and spouse of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas — about her efforts to overturn Donald Trump’s 2020 election loss. The transfer comes after a sequence of Thomas’s texts have been made public by which she urges Donald Trump’s then-Chief of Staff Mark Meadows within the weeks following the election to take motion to stop a Biden victory. Justice Thomas is the one justice who dissented within the Supreme Court’s determination a number of months in the past that led to the discharge of White House paperwork round January 6. We converse with Ian Millhiser, senior correspondent at Vox, who calls Ginni Thomas “a cheerleader at the highest level” for the try and overturn the election. “When you’re a judge, you can’t sit on a case where your wife has an interest,” says Millhiser. “If Clarence Thomas knew that his wife was potentially implicated in this scandal, I think he should have recused himself from this case.” Millhiser’s newest piece is headlined “Clarence Thomas’s long fight against fair and democratic elections.”
