Disgraced, failed, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump is absolutely ecstatic that Ginni Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas for telling the House Select Committee investigating the January 6, 2021 Capitol insurrection that she believes the 2020 election was stolen from the Donald.
In a statement he released, Trump all but suggested that Ms. Thomas should be nominated for sainthood, according to Mediaite.
“Congratulations to Ginni Thomas for having the courage of her convictions. Most importantly, she is right.
“The Election was Rigged and Stolen, and everyone knows it—especially the Radical Left Democrats who are destroying our Country. Cheating on Elections is the only thing they do really well, and that’s because Weak Republicans and RINOs allow them to get away with it. Fortunately, Ginni Thomas is not one of them and, by the way, her husband is Great!”
Ms. Thomas reportedly testified before the committee for five hours, and there are already reports that some of her testimony, which was videotaped, may be shown at the next public hearing of the Jan. 6 committee.
She also met regularly with Trump during his administration, according to the Washington Post, usually to discuss personnel decisions:
Years before she became one of then-President Donald Trump’s most prominent coup supporters, Ginni Thomas was already notorious in his West Wing for, among other things, ruining staffers’ afternoons by working Trump into fits of vengeful rage.
“We all knew that within minutes after Ginni left her meeting with the president, he would start yelling about firing people for being disloyal,” a former senior Trump administration official is quoted as saying. “When Ginni Thomas showed up, you knew your day was wrecked.”
Justice Thomas is the only member of the Supreme Court who voted to hear any of the 2020 election challenge cases brought before the high court, and there are questions about his refusal to recuse himself from such matters in light of his wife’s repeated contacts with Trump.
