Ginni Thomas, Wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, Admits She Attended Jan. 6 Trump Rally But Denies Ties to Organizers

( Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’ wife recently cleared up a situation, admitting that she attended the rally that preceded the January 6 attack at the U.S. Capitol building, but didn’t help to plan it.

On Monday, Virginia Thomas, who goes by Ginni, gave an interview to the Washington Free Beacon in which she confirmed:

“I played no role with those who were planning and leading the January 6 events.”

The Free Beacon has reported that while Thomas did indeed attend the Ellipse rally on January 6, which is obviously considered very controversial, she left the rally early because she was cold. Ultimately, she didn’t even see the speech that then-President Donald Trump gave.

On that same day, Thomas tried to spread the word about the rally when she posted on Facebook:


In the days following that post, Thomas made her Facebook page private, and then apologized for all staff members who work for her husband for attending that “Stop the Steal” rally.

In an email, Thomas wrote:

“I owe you all an apology. I have likely imposed on you my lifetime passions.

“My passions and beliefs are likely shared with the bulk of you, but certainly not all. And sometimes, the smallest matters can divide loved ones for too long. Let’s pledge to not let politics divide THIS family, and learn to speak more gently and knowingly across the divide.”

Even though Thomas denied that she was involved in the planning of the January 6 rally, two prominent news publications reported just the opposite recently. The New Yorker and The New York Times Magazine each published detailed information that linked Thomas to some of the organizers of the rally that day.

One of the details was that she serves on the board of one of the organizations that was sponsoring the rally.

Jane Mayer published a January article in The New Yorker that was titled “Is Ginni Thomas a Threat to the Supreme Court?” The article went on to explain how Thomas’ personal political activism has made headlines recently, especially with her taking some hardline positions on controversial issues.

In that article, Mayer wrote:

“[Thomas] declared that America is in existential danger because of the ‘deep state’ and the ‘fascist left,’ which includes ‘transsexual fascists.'”

The Times reported a month later that Thomas had direct connections to figures such as Charlie Kirk or Turning Point USA, Steve Bannon and John Eastman.

Turning Point USA is a student group that’s pro-Trump that sponsored the rally on January 6, and Eastman spoke at that event. Thomas serves on that organization’s board.

Bannon, of course, is a former top adviser for Trump who was criminally charged in recent months for refusing to comply with the House January 6 committee’s subpoena for him to testify.

Despite these reports, Thomas still says she had no involvement in planning the event. She told the Beacon she is “disappointed and frustrated that there was violence that happened following a peaceful gathering of Trump supporters on the Ellipse on January 6.

“There are stories in the press suggesting I paid or arranged for buses. I did not. There are other stories saying I mediated feuding factions of leaders for that day. I did not.”
