Wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, Virginia ginni Thomas allegedly used the influence of her husband’s high office to repeatedly pressure then-White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows to go to any lengths necessary to nullify the 2020 presidential election. Democrat Joe Biden was given the victory over Republican Donald Trump, according to the CBS television network and the newspaper Washington Postwho have had access to the documents that collect it in the framework of the investigation of the assault on the Capitol.

In one of the 29 text messages exchanged between Thomas and Meadows, sent on November 10, 2020—the election was on November 3—Virginia Thomas writes: “Help this great president stand strong Mark! You are, along with him, the leader who can prevent the Constitutional Government of the United States from falling off the cliff.” “Most are aware that Biden and the left are attempting the biggest robbery in our history,” she reads herself in the message, according to reporters from the post Robert Costa and Bob Woodward. The text exchanges via cell phones prove the strong connection of trust that existed between Ginni Thomas and the then president’s top adviser during the time that Trump and his allies were threatening to go all the way to the Supreme Court to turn the electoral result that was unfavorable to them. None of the messages make direct reference to Justice Thomas or the Supreme Court.

Among the stated goals of Thomas, a staunch campaigner for Trump’s Make American Great Again cause, was for attorney Sidney Powell, who was behind inflammatory and unsubstantiated claims about the election, to become in “the leader and the face” of Trump’s legal team.

A few days after the elections, on November 6, Ginni Thomas sent a message to Meadows encouraging him to convince the president not to accept defeat. “Don’t give up. It takes time for the Army to come together to defend him!” Meadows wrote to Thomas on November 24 calling on God to describe the enormous effort involved in nullifying the election. “This is a fight of good versus evil,” Meadows wrote. “Evil always seems victorious until the King of Kings triumphs. Do not tire of doing good. The fight continues. I’ve staked my career on it. Well at least my time in DC [como se conoce a la capital de EE UU]”. Thomas’s wife’s response was as follows: “Thank you! That was exactly what she needed to hear! Well, that and a conversation with my best friend just now… I’ll try to keep holding on. America is worth it!” It is unclear who Thomas was referring to by his best friend.

The messages, which could prompt the House Select Committee investigating the attack on Capitol Hill to issue a subpoena for Virginia Thomas to testify, are among the 2,320 that Meadows provided to the committee. Thomas sent 21 messages and Meadows eight. Until CBS and Washington Post They have not been made public, their existence was unknown.
