Ginni Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, said she welcomes the opportunity to “clarify misconceptions” with the House Jan. 6 committee.
Mississippi Democrat Bennie G. Thompson said this week that the committee would soon invite Ms. Thomas to appear before the committee.
“I can’t wait to dispel misconceptions,” Ms Thomas told the Daily Caller. “I look forward to talking to them.”
On Thursday, Mr. Thompson told Axios that the panel had concluded that “it is time we invited her to come and speak with the committee at some point”, citing emails obtained by the panel that he said “some information referring to Ginni Thomas.”
Eastman, the conservative attorney behind President Trump’s call for Vice President Pence to postpone or reject the census of the 2020 presidential election, was a central figure in Thursday’s public hearing of the commission, which focused on the Trump campaign to undo the election.
Ms. Thomas attended the meeting at the Ellipse that preceded the Capitol riot on January 6, 2021. She told the Washington Free Beacon in March that she was leaving early.
Ms Thomas has not made it clear what misconceptions she wants to clear up with the committee.
