Thomas responded to remarks made by the committee chairman, Democrat Bennie Thompson, that indicated the board would pursue her testimony.
Thomas told the Daily Caller, “I can’t wait to clear up misconceptions. I look forward to talking to them.”
The Washington Post reported that the committee obtained emails between Thomas and attorney John Eastman, who has been implicated in measures to stop the certification of President Joe Biden’s win against Donald Trump in the November 2020 election.
Eastman said that the emails obtained by the Washington Post were “false innuendo based on selective leaks” and were unrelated to the committee’s hearings.
Eastman said, “I can categorically confirm that at no time did I discuss with Mrs. Thomas or Justice Thomas any matters pending or likely to come before the Court. We have never engaged in such discussions, would not engage in such talks, and did not do so in December 2020 or anytime else.
“It’s time for us to invite her to come talk,” Thompson told reporters at the Capitol the next day.
The Washington Post reported a month ago that Thomas supposedly pressed Republican state legislators in Arizona to ignore the election results and establish a “clean slate” of electors.
Thomas also allegedly communicated with Trump White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows and contacted Jared Kushner about legal options concerning an election offensive.
An activist, Thomas attended the January 6 rally before the Capitol protests but left early, she said.
“The states got defrauded,” Trump said during the rally. “They were given false information. They voted on it. Now they want to recertify. They want it back. All Vice President Pence has to do is send it back to the states to recertify, and we become president and you are the happiest people.”
Thomas’ active political participation has raised concerns that her husband should not rule on cases involving Trump or the Capitol protests.
In January, Clarence Thomas cast the dissenting vote when the Supreme Court denied Trump’s appeal to stop the release of White House documents sought by the January 6 committee.
