The House select committee investigating January 6, 2021, has come to an agreement with Ginni Thomas, the conservative activist and wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, to be interviewed by the panel in the coming weeks, according to a source close to the committee.

Ginni Thomas’ attorney, Mark Paoletta, confirmed the voluntary interview in a statement, saying, “As she has said from the outset, Mrs.

Thomas is eager to answer the Committee’s questions to clear up any misconceptions about her work relating to the 2020 election. She looks forward to that opportunity.”

Members of the panel have long said they are interested in speaking with Thomas, particularly after CNN first reported text messages she exchanged with then-Trump White House chief of staff Mark Meadows prior to January 6 about overturning the election.

But in the months since those messages emerged, there has been little indication that compelling her to testify was a top priority for the panel despite subsequent evidence that Thomas also encouraged state lawmakers in Arizona and Wisconsin to overturn Joe Biden’s legitimate electoral win.

In June, Paoletta said in a letter to the committee that he did not “believe there is currently a sufficient basis to speak with” Thomas.

“I am asking the Committee to provide a better justification for why Mrs. Thomas’s testimony is relevant to the Committee’s legislative purpose,” he wrote in the letter obtained by CNN.

The lawyer’s response followed a June 16 letter from the committee asking Thomas to meet with the panel in July and provide documents that could be relevant to the investigation.

The committee has email correspondence between Thomas and former President Donald Trump’s election attorney John Eastman, as well as texts between her and Meadows. The texts show Thomas urging Meadows to continue the fight to overturn the 2020 presidential election results.

Thomas’ lawyer said in the June letter his client was “willing to appear” and “eager to clear her name,” but that without more information from the committee, he feared that she had been asked to come in “to continue the baseless harassment she has been subjected to since January 6.”

“There is no story to uncover here,” he said in the letter.

Stock car racing’s best will tackle the intense high-speed action on Atlanta’s 1.54-mile oval for 400 miles of superspeedway-style racing in the Ambetter Health 400 on Sunday, March 19. Fresh off the dazzling 2022 running of this event – which saw an AMS record 46 lead changes among 20 drivers – the Ambetter Health 400 will be one of the most anticipated events of the 2023 season.

As the race to the NASCAR playoffs intensifies, the NASCAR Cup Series will race into Atlanta once again for the Quaker State 400 Presented by Walmart on Sunday, July 9. New for 2023, Atlanta’s summer NASCAR races will be decided at night under the lights.

“After all the excitement we saw on the track and the fun we had off the track, I’m thrilled to invite fans back for the Ambetter Health 400 in March,” said AMS Executive Vice President and General Manager Brandon Hutchison. “Equally as exciting is being able to deliver what our fans have been asking for in July: NASCAR action under the lights during the Quaker State 400 Presented by Walmart. It’s going to be a year of live entertainment at its best! Our team is already hard at work to ensure both events are packed with unforgettable experiences for our fans.”

The NASCAR Xfinity Series will also race under the lights in the Alsco Uniforms 250 on Saturday, July 8. The 2023 Quaker State 400 Presented by Walmart weekend will be the first to feature night races at AMS since 2014.
