She’s not worried.

Conservative activist and wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, Virginia (Ginni) Thomas revealed she is looking forward to clearing up “misconceptions” after reports surfaced that the House Committee investigating Jan. 6 Capitol attack is seeking her testimony.

According to reporting by the Daily Caller, Thomas said, “I can’t wait to clear up misconceptions,” adding that she is looking “forward to talking to them.”

Thomas didn’t indicate the misconceptions the committee has, but many speculate it has to do with communications she had with conservative attorney John Eastman, a prominent figure in Trump’s attempt to overturn the 2020 Presidential elections.

However, her statements come after Committee Chair Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) revealed on Thursday that the committee sent “Ms. Thomas a letter asking [her] to come and talk to the committee.”

Thompson also confirmed that the panel wanted to talk to Thomas because they had discovered “some information that refers to Ginni Thomas” in emails between the conservativist activist and Eastman.

As has been apparent through the three public hearings the panel has hosted, Eastman played a vital role in Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 Presidential election results.

But Ginni’s involvement in Jan. 6, and the events surrounding it, extends beyond emails to Eastman.

Thomas told the Washington Free Beacon in March that she had attended Trump’s rally on Jan. 6 but that she left early before the former President addressed the crowd.

Thomas has also been linked to an attempt to get 29 Arizona lawmakers to choose different presidential elections in a bid to overturn President Joe Biden’s victory in the state.
