(PatrioticPost.com)- After Virginia “Ginny” Thomas testified before the partisan January 6 Select Committee last Thursday, the committee chair claimed that she still believes that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from former President Donald Trump.
Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, has been a target of the partisan witch hunt for months. And no sooner had she finished testifying did committee chairman, Mississippi Democrat Bennie Thompson, rush to the press to kvetch over her comments about the 2020 election.
Thompson told reporters that Ginny Thomas’ belief that the 2020 election was “stolen” is “typical” of a lot of the testimony the committee has heard from people involved in “this effort around January 6.”
Congressman Thompson also claimed that Ginny Thomas only answered “some questions.”
Both of Thompson’s claims about her testimony, however, were disputed by Thomas’ lawyer, Mark Paoletta.
According to Paoletta, Ginny Thomas answered all the questions put to her during the hours-long meeting with the committee and only discussed her concerns about “fraud and irregularities” during the 2020 presidential election.
Paoletta said in a statement that in her testimony, Mrs. Thomas said “her minimal and mainstream activity” after the election was “focused on ensuring that reports of fraud and irregularities were investigated.”
Paoletta added that Thomas “played no role in any events after the 2020 election results.”
During questioning, Thomas also dismissed the accusations that her participation in politics was in any way connected to her Supreme Court Justice husband, telling the committee that it was “laughable” to think she could “influence his jurisprudence” since Justice Thomas is “independent and stubborn.”
With the midterm election just weeks away, the January 6 committee is planning a new date for its final hearing which was postponed due to Hurricane Ian. But at this point, it is unlikely that the hearing will take place before the November election as the House is in recess so members can campaign.
