Virginia (Ginni) Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, is a conservative activist. It has been reported that she had significant access to former President Donald Trump’s chief of staff, Mark Meadows. In the weeks after Trump lost the election to Joe Biden, Ginni Thomas wrote in an email to Meadows that Biden’s win was “the greatest heist in our history.” She urged Meadows to make sure that Trump did not concede the election.
Over the course of several weeks following Trump’s loss, Thomas wrote a number of emails challenging Meadows to fight to overturn the 2020 presidential elections. This is according to copies of the emails obtained by The Washington Post and CBS News.
In all, there were 29 emails sent from Ginni Thomas to Mark Meadows. On November 10, after Biden was projected to be the winner of the election, Thomas wrote, “Help This Great President stand firm, Mark!!!…You are the leader, with him, who is standing for America’s constitutional governance at the precipice. The majority knows Biden and the Left is attempting the greatest Heist of our History.”
Meadows responded to the email from Thomas saying, “This is a fight of good versus evil,” Meadows wrote. “Evil always looks like the victor until the King of Kings triumphs. Do not grow weary in well-doing. The fight continues. I have staked my career on it. Well at least my time in DC on it.”
Thomas thanked Meadows and talked about a conversation she had with her “best friend.” She vowed to keep holding on because America was worth it. Some believe that she was referring to her husband, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, but his name is never mentioned in the emails.
Thomas made it clear in her emails that she thought Sidney Powell should be “the lead and the face” of Trump’s legal fight for the election.
These emails were among the 2,320 that Meadows turned over to the House select committee that was investigating the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. George Terwilliger III is Meadows’s attorney and he confirmed the existence of the email messages between his client and Thomas. He said that there would not be a comment on the messages, but there was nothing that presented any legal issues. After Meadows released the 2,320 messages, he no longer cooperated with the committee and argued that further engagement with the committed could violate former President Trump’s claim of executive privilege.
Neither Ginni nor her husband was willing to comment on the story.
Immediately after the election, Trump called it a “major fraud” on America and said that there would be an investigation and they would ultimately be going to the Supreme Court.
Ginni Thomas has publicly denied that her activism creates a conflict of interest with her husband’s place on the High Court. She said that he doesn’t discuss his work with her and she didn’t with him. Ginni Thomas did attend Trump’s rally on January 6th but said that she left early because of the cold weather. She said that she did not have anything to do with the planning of the event.
In one of the last emails the committee looked at, Ginni Thomas expressed her disdain for Vice President Mike Pence. She said that those around her were “disgusted” with the VP likely because of his unwillingness to stop the certification of the election results.
When the Supreme Court rejected election challenges in February of 2021, Clarence Thomas wrote the dissent position. He said that it was “baffling” and “inexplicable” that the majority on the court decided not to hear the case. He believed the Supreme Court should give states guidance for future elections.
The progressives on the left surely will use this information to go after Justice Thomas. Let’s hope this isn’t used as fuel for the court-packing movement.
