Former White House senior advisor Jared Kushner has suddenly become a person of interest for the House Select Committee investigating the Jan 6 attack in the US Capitol after the panel obtained text messages that appear to link him to the plot to overturn the 2020 election.

Prior to the attack on the Capitol, Ginny Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, sent a barrage of text messages to then-president Donald Trump’s chief of staff Mark Meadows, seeking to coordinate the effort to undo Trump’s loss to Joe Biden, CNN reported, citing a person with knowledge of the texts.

But Meadows was not Thomas’s only contact inside the Trump White House in the weeks ahead of the insurrection. According to The Washington Post, the son-in-law of the former president also received text messages from Thomas.

In one of her texts to Meadows, she notifies him about her outreach to Kushner, writing: “Just forwarded to yr gmail an email I sent Jared this am. Sidney Powell & improved coordination now will help the cavalry come and Fraud exposed and America saved.”

The texts were among about 9,000 pages of documents that Meadows turned over to the congressional committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol attack, The Washington Post reported.
