Jan. 6 House committee may subpoena Mike Pence to testify, waits for Ginni Thomas’ testimony

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:


  • The Jan. 6 House committee is setting its sight on getting former vice president Mike Pence to testify.
  • The special committee has already sent Virginia “Ginni” Thomas an invitation to testify.
  • The wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas will be questioned about her role in the plot to overturn the 2020 election.

The Jan. 6 House committee may subpoena former Vice President Mike Pence to testify before the panel investigating the Capitol riot. The committee has already sent an invitation to Virginia “Ginni” Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, to question her about her role in the plot to overturn the result of the 2020 election.

The committee indicated they will release more evidence about former President Donald Trump’s alleged attempt to defraud supporters. The former president is being accused of fundraising off false claims of a stolen presidential election. The Jan. 6 panel also promised to provide pertinent documents to the Department of Justice by the end of the month.

Last week, the DOJ sent the committee a letter, complaining that it is complicating its investigation by not sharing transcripts from its nearly 1,000 interviews.

“We’re not taking anything off the table in terms of witnesses who have not yet testified,” said Rep. Adam Schiff.

Schiff said issuing Pence a subpoena is “certainly a possibility.”

The select committee was able to document most of Trump’s end of his call to Pence hours before the attack on Jan. 6, 2021. However, it has not yet documented what Pence said in response.

Democrat Rep. Bennie Thompson, the committee chairman, said the committee was still “engaging” with Pence’s lawyers. He suggested that Pence’s appearance may not be necessary because of testimony from many of Pence’s closest aides.

Members of the committee are waiting to hear from Ginni Thomas and her own effort to keep Trump in office. Her role in the plot may have potential conflicts of interest as her husband is a Supreme Court Justice.

Ginni Thomas has recently indicated that she “can’t wait” to appear before the panel after receiving their request by letter last week.

Thomas attended a rally Trump held just before the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. She also allegedly emailed Arizona officials and wrote to then-White House chief of staff Mark Meadows urging him to work to overturn the election result. Emails recently obtained by the committee also show Thomas had email communications with John Eastman, the lawyer who played a key role on behalf of Trump in efforts to pressure Pence to overturn the election.

“I think the committee will be interested, in among other things, whether this was discussed with Justice Thomas, given that he was ruling on cases impacting whether we would get some of this information,” Schiff said.

  1. I want to know why Hillary Clinton wasn’t prosecuted for all of her crimes? There were enough facts to send her to the electric chair. Hillary is old as the hills and she with Joe Biden haven’t got but a few years left on this earth. Could this be the reason they aren’t being electrocuted for their treasonous ways?

    1. Because our upper level DOJ is a complete joke and corrupted and compromised. “No one should be above the Law” Judicial Watch

  2. What a Crock of S**t and a complete waste of American citizens time and money on a partisan delusional witch hunt. While the U S.A. is being flushed down the toilet economically and internationally. And the real insurrectionist’s and Seditious criminals are getting off scott Free. To top off the joke on the American People. We are paying their salaries to try and divide and conquer this Constitutional Republic from the inside out! They should all be strung up on gallows for the Traitors they are. Obummer included… Seriously

  3. The jan6 committee is completely ignoring the fact that the democrats stuffed ballot boxes with fraudulent ballots. They ignore the fact that there were tens of thousands of mail in ballots fraudulently made out in the names of people that had moved away from states like Arizona and Georgia, and sent in late, and counted late. Then, those same peoples names also voted where they moved to.
    This committee needs to be prosecuted.
    Biden and his cohorts who have completely disrupted the function of this country need to be removed from the whitehouse for voter fraud, and the presidency should be handed back to Trump so he can try to straighten out this disaster of the Biden Harris regime.

  4. How can this committee get away with wasting time and tax payer money on this foolishness? When will they do the work their constituents elected them to do? This is all a sham, when one considers all the destruction that BLM and ANTIFA did to police, federal buildings and businesses and all the deaths that occurred and no one is being held responsible. As I recall President Trump said, “go peacefully” and yet again while the American people are suffering with inflation, high gas prices, shortages of food and baby formulas, illegals destroying our lives, and concerns about what our foreign adversaries will do next, this committee shows no concern and continues to focus their attention on this “Sham” because of their hate. Truly they all need to be voted out of office.
