Justice Clarence Thomas’ wife agrees to interview in Jan. 6 probe

Virginia Thomas

WASHINGTON (AP) — The wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, conservative activist Virginia Thomas, has agreed to participate in a voluntary interview with the House panel investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection.

Attorney Mark Paoletta says Thomas is “eager to answer the committee’s questions to clear up any misconceptions about her work relating to the 2020 election.”

The committee has sought an interview with Thomas to know more about her role in trying to help former President Donald Trump overturn his election defeat.

She contacted lawmakers in Arizona and Wisconsin as part of that effort.
