The greatest [attempted] Heist of our History
Virginia Thomas was working very closely with Mark Meadows’s election theft efforts:
Virginia Thomas, a conservative activist married to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, repeatedly pressed White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows to pursue unrelenting efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election in a series of urgent text exchanges in the critical weeks after the vote, according to copies of the messages obtained by The Washington Post and CBS News.
The messages – 29 in all – reveal an extraordinary pipeline between Virginia Thomas, who goes by Ginni, and President Donald Trump’s top aide during a period when Trump and his allies were vowing to go to the Supreme Court in an effort to negate the election results.
On Nov. 10, after news organizations had projected Joe Biden the winner based on state vote totals, Thomas wrote to Meadows: “Help This Great President stand firm, Mark!!!…You are the leader, with him, who is standing for America’s constitutional governance at the precipice. The majority knows Biden and the Left is attempting the greatest Heist of our History.”
When Meadows wrote to Thomas on Nov. 24, the White House chief of staff invoked God to describe the effort to overturn the election. “This is a fight of good versus evil,” Meadows wrote. “Evil always looks like the victor until the King of Kings triumphs. Do not grow weary in well doing. The fight continues. I have staked my career on it. Well at least my time in DC on it.”
Thomas replied: “Thank you!! Needed that! This plus a conversation with my best friend just now… I will try to keep holding on. America is worth it!”
Well, at least it’s not as if there was any chance the Supreme Court would have to adjudicate any relevant disputes or anything.
Another important point:
The only three people I have ever met or read about who insistently capitalize random words are Donald Trump, Ginni Thomas, and Marty Peretz. Maybe not a great sign?— Isaac Chotiner (@IChotiner) March 24, 2022

Question. Given that Justice Thomas did not write a dissent explaining his vote to block release of January 6th documents, which would include his wife's texts, doesn't he need to offer some substantial explanation now?— Amanda Carpenter (@amandacarpenter) March 24, 2022
