The Stupid Coup, Part Infinity
It feels it was only a few short weeks ago that the world learned that Justice Ginni Thomas was jowls deep into the Stupid Coup and she could not wait to testify, you know, to clear up misconceptions.
Now, not so much:
WASHINGTON — An attorney representing Virginia “Ginni” Thomas, a conservative activist and the wife of Supreme Court JusticeClarence Thomas, is pushing back against a request from the House Jan. 6 committee for her testimony.
In an eight-page letter to the committee, obtained Wednesday by NBC News, Ginni Thomas’ lawyer, Mark R. Paoletta, argued that he has not seen any reason for her to testify and asked the panel to provide a “better justification” for his client’s testimony.
“Mrs. Thomas is eager to clear her name and is willing to appear before the Committee to do so,” he wrote in the letter, dated Tuesday. “However, based on my understanding of the communications that spurred the Committee’s request, I do not understand the need to speak with Mrs. Thomas. Before I can recommend that she meet with you, I am asking the Committee to provide a better justification for why Mrs. Thomas’s testimony is relevant to the Committee’s legislative purpose.”
Which sounds like a one-way ticket to Contempt of Congress Island with her pals Bannon and Navarro to me. I love this new gambit of asking the Committee, what have you got on me? before they will appear.
It’s like the rude guest who wants to know who else will be at the dinner party before accepting the invite.
