Text messages sent by Ginni Thomas, the wife of US Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, show she pushed to overturn the results of the 2020 president elections.
Ginni Thomas repeatedly pushed White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential elections, according to two US news media organizations CBS News and The Washington Post.
The text messages were first received by a House Committee that was investigating the Capitol Hill siege that took place on January 6, 2021. The 29 messages are a part of more than 2,300 messages that Meadows handed over to the committee investigating the riot.
Justice Thomas is the only Black male justice sitting on the nine-judge bench of the US Supreme Court right now and is known for his conservative opinions. Ketanji Brown Jackson, who is set to become the first Black female justice of the country’s court, will become the third Black justice after she is formally approved.
According to the BBC, Ginni is a well-known Republican fundraiser and was associated with the hard-line conservative movement of the party called the Tea Party wing, with which Meadows was also briefly associated with.
