(NewsGlobal.com)- Virginia “Ginni” Thomas received a letter from the January 6 House Committee on Thursday asking her to talk with them about “knowledge concerning John Eastman’s plans and activities related to” their inquiry.
The committee believes it’s time that they, at some point, invite her to talk to the committee.
Thomas said she “can’t wait to clear up misconceptions” and said she would be willing to go talk with the committee.
The letter states that the Committee thinks Thomas will likely have information critical to their investigation. They want an interview to discuss her knowledge of specific events and activities following the November 2020 presidential election.
It said that they respect her privacy, and their questioning will be limited to matters relevant to January 6, the events leading up to or influencing those events, and the transition of power following the presidential election.
A number of examples of “documents or communications” that would satisfy the committee’s request were listed in the letter, along with a notation that the committee was asking for “materials that are pertinent to” its investigation.
The letter refers to recently discovered further information regarding the activities of John Eastman, a lawyer associated with the previous president Trump and refers to current headlines about him.
In the letter, it is stated that “We are specifically investigating the activities of President Trump, John Eastman, and others as they relate to the Constitution and certain other laws, including the Electoral Count Act, that set out the necessary procedure for the election and inauguration of the President.”
On Thursday, Eastman published a Substack discrediting the committee’s inquiry into his conversations with Thomas. He claimed he did not speak with Thomas or her husband regarding any matters currently or expected to come before the Court.
Vice-Chair Liz Cheney and Bennie Thompson signed the letter to Thomas. The committee proposed the dates of July 6, 7, or 8 for her presence.
If Thomas will show up before the committee is not yet known.
