The View’s Sunny Hostin — and January sixth Committee — consider Justice Clarence Thomas’s spouse, Virginia “Ginni” Thomas, must testify on the subsequent listening to. And although Thomas will probably be known as in entrance of the committee, information that broke in the course of the airing of at the moment’s episode of The View, Hostin was notably incensed in regards to the “heated arguments” within the Supreme Court docket talked about in lawyer John Eastman’s emails.
“I simply suppose that Ginni Thomas is problematic,” Hostin famous on at the moment’s episode. “The problem right here is John Eastman was not solely Trump’s lawyer; he was Justice Thomas’ former legislation clerk. There’s a friendship there. After which he’s additionally exchanging emails with Ginni Thomas, after which the Trump group — the Trump aides and as their lawyer saying ‘hear, I’ve inside info that there are 4 Supreme Court docket justices that will hear our declare of election fraud, and there’s a heated argument inside the Supreme Court docket about these claims.’ The place does he get that info from?”
On June 9, U.S. District Decide David O. Carter ordered John Eastman to show over 170 paperwork concerning the January sixth riot. After retrieving the primary set of paperwork, the decide requested for 159 extra. And in keeping with the Washington Publish, these paperwork included emails that establish Ginni Thomas because the recipient who was, actually, involved with Eastman all through that interval.
Whereas attempting to make sense of all this mess, Hostin mentioned that Ginni may have been “pillow speaking” along with her husband, and will have handed the data alongside to Eastman.
“Does he get it from Ginni Thomas, who has pillow talks along with her husband?” Hostin requested. “Or does he get it instantly from Justice Thomas? Now I’m not making accusations. However, the underside line is we already know that the Supreme Court docket is comprised, proper? Due to the leak, and that tells me that when there’s smoke, there’s hearth, and Ginni Thomas should come earlier than a committee and testify on what she is aware of.”
Properly, you’re in luck, Sunny, as a result of in keeping with Axios, the Home Committee will ship Ginni an invitation “quickly.”
Chiming in on Hostin’s questions, Whoopi Goldberg added, “Properly, I wanna know as a result of they made such a giant deal. ‘Oh, it may be the clerks. The clerks are most likely the one.’ They have been going to undergo their telephones — and completely different stuff. After which it’s type of like — no one mentioned anything. What occurred with that investigation? Who was it?”
“However, I heard any person on CNN say that that is like opening one other aperture within the investigation,” Pleasure Behar replied. “You realize, possibly Liz Cheney doesn’t need to go there proper now — and focus on January 6.”
It appears to be like like all of our questions gained’t get answered till Ginni Thomas testifies earlier than the committee… And possibly not even then.
