The January 6 Committee obtained emails between the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, Virginia "Ginni" Thomas, and lawyer John Eastman showing how far Thomas went to try to overturn the 2020 presidential election. She also not only tried to interfere in the election in Arizona but also in Wisconsin. Aside from the election, good old Ginni is connected to 38 of the 74 anti-abortion groups that filed "amicus briefs" successfully urging the Supreme Court to overturn Roe.

But according to what Ginni told the January 6 committee today, her husband, Clarence, didn't know anything about his wife trying to overturn the presidential election.

Ginni told the panel that she still believes the election was stolen. As MSNBC's Nicole Wallace noted, Ginni was questioned by the committee about her communications with the architects of the plot to overturn the election.

"We understand that she stuck to her claims that there was widespread fraud in the election and that it was stolen, but she said she did not discuss her activities with her husband, Justice Thomas," Wallace said.

"We could see some Ginni Thomas clips at the next hearing," she continued, adding that Ginni was pressing "legislatures, sending these letters to different date legislators she was texting, to the chief of staff, Mark Meadows. she was in communications with John Eastman."

"The John Eastman thing is what the committee is most interested in because they view him as one of the intellectual architects of the plan to overturn the election and, in effect, steal the election," she continued.

"And remember, those text messages to Mark Meadows, she said she had been in touch with Jared Kushner, and she even recommended Sydney Powell as a lawyer in the efforts to overturn the election," she added.

Ginni was there for four hours. Ginni and Clarence have been married since 1987, and we're expected to believe that her MAGA husband was unaware of the massive plan she was undertaking to overturn the election. This isn't about forgetting to pick up toilet paper at the store. Plotting a coup is kind of a big deal. Clarence needs to step down from any cases involving the 2020 election and the January 6 insurrection. He really should resign in disgrace.

Just once, I would like the election deniers to explain how it was stolen. And they can't use debunked nonsense. Prove it, or STFU.
