You’ll never guess which former clerk of Supreme Court justice Clarence Thomas was discussing a criminal fucking conspiracy over email with Thomas’s connected spouse!
Well, maybe you will:
The House committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol has obtained email correspondence between Virginia “Ginni” Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, and lawyer John Eastman, who played a key role in efforts to pressure Vice President Mike Pence to block the certification of Joe Biden’s victory, according to three people involved in the committee’s investigation.
The emails show that Thomas’s efforts to overturn the election were more extensive than previously known, two of the people said. The three declined to provide details and spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive matters.
The committee’s members and staffers are now discussing whether to spend time during their public hearings exploring Ginni Thomas’s role in the attempt to overturn the outcome of the 2020 election, the three people said. The Washington Post previously reported that the committee had not sought an interview with Thomas and was leaning against pursuing her cooperation with its investigation.
Well, it’s not like Clarence Thomas is about to be able to vote on a case that could hold that only gerrymandered Republican legislatures and Republican Supreme Court justices can resolve disputes over contested elections in swing states or something.
