Latest Ginni Thomas controversy means the Supreme Court can't escape the 2020 election
The committee has now asked Ginni Thomas to speak about her efforts to reverse the election results.
Ginni Thomas, a longtime conservative activist, has previously stressed that her work is separate from her husband's.
On the 2020 election, however, their actions ran on parallel tracks and the latest revelations further entangle the Supreme Court in politics.
Justice Thomas has declined to comment on questions tied to his wife's activities or potential conflicts of interest.
For her part, Ginni Thomas told The Daily Caller on Thursday of the January 6 committee, "I can't wait to clear up misconceptions.
Ginni Thomas had earlier said that while she attended Trump's rally on January 6, 2021, she did not march down to the Capitol with protesters.
The January 6 committee now has email correspondence between conservative lawyer John Eastman , a prominent Trump legal strategist in 2020 and a former law clerk to Justice Thomas, and Ginni Thomas.
'By doing nothing, we invite further confusion and erosion of voter confidence'In the litigation that came to the Supreme Court during the 2020 election and its aftermath, Justice Thomas was receptive to Trump-backed theories.
During the 2020 election litigation, Trump's assertions were rejected in one lawsuit after another, including in a December 2020 case that came to the justices.
Trump wrote on Twitter as the Supreme Court was about to act: "If the Supreme Court shows Great Wisdom and Courage, the American People will win perhaps the most important case in history and our Electoral Process will be respected again."
But the Supreme Court on December 11 tossed the case.
On the other hand, perhaps he had some backchannel connection to the Supreme Court, and we want to ferret that out if that's true."
