On Sunday, U.S. Representative Liz Cheney (R-WY) said during an interview on CNN that the House Select Committee investigating the January 6 attack on the US Capitol Capitol is prepared to subpoena Ginni Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, if she refuses to testify voluntarily.
Cheney’s remarks came after host Jake Tapper asked about Mrs. Thomas’ role in Trump’s efforts to subvert the 2020 presidential election results and whether the committee will press her to testify.
“She was writing to them about efforts to overturn the 2020 election results, not to mention her correspondence with Arizona lawmakers pushing fake electors. Is your committee planning on talking to her?” host Tapper asked.
“We are,” Cheney replied. “The committee is engaged with her counsel and hope she will agree to come in voluntarily. The committee is prepared to contemplate a subpoena if she does not.”
“I hope it doesn’t get to that and I hope she comes voluntarily,” she continued. “We’ve spoken with numbers of people who are similarly situated in terms of the discussions that she was having as you mentioned. It’s very important for us to speak with her and, as I said, I hope she’ll agree to do so voluntarily — I’m sure we’ll contemplate a subpoena if she won’t.”
