Ginni Thomas will meet with the House committee investigating the January 6 riots

The House Jan. 6 committee has reached an agreement with Ginni Thomas to be interviewed in the coming weeks, a source close to the House panel said Wednesday.

Emails, records and reports indicate that Thomas, a conservative activist and wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, was involved in some aspects of a scheme involving “false voters” after the 2020 election and also was in contact with Trump’s attorney, John Eastman, about his strategies to overturn the election results.

CNN first reported on the planned meeting with Thomas, which comes after weeks of back and forth and a letter asking him to speak to the panel.

Thomas first came under scrutiny for messages he sent to Mark Meadows, telling former President Donald Trump’s then-chief of staff to encourage him not to give Joe Biden the pick.

Thomas’ attorney, Mark R. Paoletta, in June defended the messages to Meadows as simply “with a friend” text messages and argued that the emails between Thomas and Eastman did not warrant the House panel’s request for an interview.

Thomas, Paoletta said at the time, “expressed concern about the future of our country under the leadership of President Biden. But none of it was unethical, much less illegal, and none of it suggests that Ms. Thomas had even the slightest role in the January 6 attack on Capitol Hill, or even that she has any information about the attack.”

The Jan. 6 committee announced Wednesday that it would hold its next and possibly last public hearing next week. The panel did not specify the focus of the hearing or whether there would be any live testimony from witnesses.
