Virginia Thomas agrees to meet with Jan. 6 Capitol riot committee

Virginia Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, agreed to meet with the House committee investigating her participation in the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.

A source close to the House panel disclosed that Viriginia Thomas will be interviewed in the coming weeks.

CNN reported the meeting with Thomas after the countless back and forth and a letter requesting her to testify in front of the panel.

“As she has said from the outset, Mrs. Thomas is eager to answer the Committee’s questions to clear up any misconceptions about her work relating to the 2020 election,” Paoletta was quoted as saying. “She looks forward to that opportunity.”

In March 2022, Thomas admitted that she was at the former President Donald Trump’s “Stop the Steal” rally in Washington on Jan. 6, 2021.  She said that  didn’t join the people that stormed the Capitol building. 

Her husband, Clarence Thomas, was the only member of the court to vote against providing the Jan. 6 committee access to former president Donal Trump’s White House records.

The Thomas’ claimed that the wife’s work has no influence on the justice’s actions on the Supreme Court.
