Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas' Wife Linked to January 6th Insurrection

On January 6, 2021 thousands of Donald Trump supporters stormed the Capitol Building in Washington D.C. to stop the certification of the presidential election after the Save America rally on the ellipse where Donald Trump and other high profile Republicans continued to insist that the election had been stolen [click here if you missed that].  

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas' wife Virginia has been linked to the incident ...

From CBS News 
Virginia Thomas, a conservative activist married to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, repeatedly pressed White House chief of staff Mark Meadows to pursue unrelenting efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election in urgent text exchanges in the critical weeks following the vote, according to copies of the messages obtained by CBS News chief election and campaign correspondent Robert Costa and Bob Woodward of The Washington Post.
Those messages — part of 29 total messages obtained — reveal an extraordinary pipeline between Virginia Thomas, who goes by Ginni, and then-President Donald Trump's top aide during a period when Trump and his allies were vowing to go to the Supreme Court in an effort to subvert the election results.
The messages, which do not directly reference Justice Thomas or the Supreme Court, show for the first time how Ginni Thomas used her access to Trump's inner circle to encourage and seek to guide the president's strategy to overturn the election results — and how receptive and grateful Meadows said he was to receive her advice. Among Thomas' stated goals in the messages was for lawyer Sidney Powell, who promoted incendiary and unsupported claims about the election, to become "the lead and the face" of Trump's legal team.
