WASHINGTON — Conservative activist Virginia Thomas, the spouse of Supreme Courtroom Justice Clarence Thomas, has agreed to take part in a voluntary interview with the Home panel investigating the Jan. 6 revolt, her lawyer mentioned Wednesday.
Legal professional Mark Paoletta mentioned Thomas is “desirous to reply the committee’s inquiries to clear up any misconceptions about her work relating to the 2020 election.”
The committee has sought an interview with Thomas in an effort to know extra about her position in making an attempt to assist former President Donald Trump overturn his election defeat. She contacted lawmakers in Arizona and Wisconsin as a part of that effort.
The panel introduced Wednesday that it’ll reconvene for a listening to on Sept. 28, possible the final in a sequence of hearings that started this summer time. The listening to announcement comes because the committee is getting ready to wrap up its work earlier than the top of the 12 months and is writing a ultimate report laying out its findings in regards to the U.S. Capitol revolt.
Members of the committee had promised extra hearings in September as they wrapped up the sequence of summer time hearings. Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney, the Republican vice chairwoman, mentioned the committee “has way more proof to share with the American folks and extra to assemble.”
It’s unclear if the hearing would provide a general overview of what the panel has learned or if it would be focused on new information and evidence, such as an interview with Thomas. The committee conducted several interviews at the end of July and into August with Trump’s Cabinet secretaries, some of whom had discussed invoking the constitutional process in the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office after the revolt.
