Commission Chair 1/6 Benny Thompson said the committee would soon invite Ginny Thomas to speak with them.
The 1/6 committee wants to talk to Ginny Thomas
Thompson told reporters:
NEW: 1/6 President Benny Thompson tells @MZanona and other reporters that it was “time” for the commission to bring in Virginia Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
Asked when, Thompson said, “Soon.”

We all know what it means when the committee “invites” a witness to come and talk to them. If the witness refuses the summons, a summons is issued. If the witness does not comply with the summons, the commission will hold a vote to declare them contempt. If the committee refers a witness to the full House of Disrespect for Congress and the House votes in favor, the witness is referred to the Department of Justice for potential prosecution.
Don’t be fooled by the language of the “invitation”. If the commission wants to talk to Ginny Thomas and she refuses, her refusal to speak is the beginning of a process that leads to criminal referrals and potential criminal charges.
Things just got very serious coup participant Ginny Thomas.
