Ginni Thomas testified in front of the Jan 6th panel on Thursday.
The panel wanted to talk to her about her communications with Trump allies after the 2020 election.
According to reports, she reiterated that she believed the 2020 election was stolen.
Virginia “Ginni” Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, stood by her concerns about the 2020 election during an appearance before the Jan. 6 committee Thursday, according to her lawyer.
Thomas reportedly fielded questions from the panel behind closed doors for about 3 1/2 hours. Investigators were keen on questioning her about her communications with Trump allies who attempted to overturn the 2020 election.
“She answered all the Committee’s questions. As she has said from the outset, Mrs. Thomas had significant concerns about fraud and irregularities in the 2020 election. And, as she told the Committee, her minimal and mainstream activity focused on ensuring that reports of fraud and irregularities were investigated,” Thomas’s attorney Mark Paoletta said in a statement.

She also blasted those claiming she could influence her husband, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, on cases calling the idea “laughable.”
In an opening statement to the committee, obtained by the New York Times, Thomas also insisted that she and her husband, the longest-serving member of America’s highest court, abided by an “ironclad rule” never to discuss cases coming before him.
“It is laughable for anyone who knows my husband to think I could influence his jurisprudence – the man is independent and stubborn, with strong character traits of independence and integrity,” she said.
Trump praised her “for having the courage of her convictions” after her appearance in front of the panel.
He also blasted weak Republicans and RINOs – saying they allowed “them to get away with it.”
Congratulations to Ginni Thomas for having the courage of her convictions. Most importantly, she is right. The Election was Rigged and Stolen, and everyone knows it—especially the Radical Left Democrats who are destroying our Country. Cheating on Elections is the only thing they do really well, and that’s because Weak Republicans and RINOs allow them to get away with it. Fortunately, Ginni Thomas is not one of them and, by the way, her husband is Great!
Ginni Thomas has more courage than the RINOs in the GOP.
