Jan. 6 Committee May Subpoena Ginni Thomas, Liz Cheney Says

The House select committee investigating last year’s January 6 Capitol attack is considering subpoenaing Ginni Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, if she doesn’t testify voluntarily.

“We certainly hope that she will agree to come in voluntarily, but the committee is fully prepared to contemplate a subpoena if she does not. I hope it doesn’t get to that. I hope she will come in voluntarily,” committee co-chair Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyoming) said during a Sunday appearance on CNN’s State of the Union.

“It’s very important for us to speak with her and as I said, I hope she will agree to do so voluntarily but I’m sure we will contemplate a subpoena if she won’t,” the Congresswoman added.

Thomas made headlines earlier this year after texts urging then-Chief of Staff Mark Meadows to do what he could to keep President Donald Trump in the White House.

“Help This Great President stand firm, Mark!!! … You are the leader, with him, who is standing for America’s constitutional governance at the precipice,” read a November 10, 2020 text message sent by Thomas that was obtained by the committee in March. “The majority knows Biden and the Left is attempting the greatest Heist of our History.”

Last month, Thomas’ lawyer Mark Paoletta asked in a letter to the committee for them to provide better justification on why they are seeking testimony from Thomas.

Paoletta added that Thomas is “willing to appear” and “eager to clear her name,” but didn’t want to testify only “to continue the baseless harassment she has been subjected to since January 6,” while reiterating that she did not have a position in the White House or on Trump’s reelection campaign.
