‘Trump’s Henchwoman’: Looks Like Ginni Thomas Was More Involved in Overturning the Election Than We Knew

Well, looks like we are finding out more about just how involved Ginni Thomas was in overturning the 2020 election, and it’s not good.

Thomas, the wife of Justice Clarence Thomas, urged 29 state legislators in Arizona to push aside Joe Biden’s win in the state and instead “choose” their own electors, The Washington Post reported.

Thomas emailed 27 more state legislators than the Post initially reported last month. Thomas, herself a prominent conservative activist, sent the messages using FreeRoots, an online platform that allows people to send pre-written emails to multiple elected officials.

Thomas sent emails to 20 Republicans in Arizona’s House and seven in its Senate. The message urged legislators to “stand strong in the face of political and media pressure” and that they had the “power to fight back against fraud.”

The email said that the legislators could “ensure that a clean slate of Electors is chosen.”

“Before you choose your state’s Electors … consider what will happen to the nation we all love if you don’t stand up and lead”, she said. The email also told lawmakers to “put things right” and “not give in to cowardice.”

The newly revealed emails from Thomas are the latest in a slew of revelations that show the extent to which the wife of the longest-serving Supreme Court Justice tried to overturn the 2020 presidential election results. Earlier this year, CBS News and the Post reported that she pressured White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows to undertake efforts to overturn the election results.

Ultimately, Arizona’s legislature voted to certify Biden’s victory, since obviously, he was the winner of the state, and the general election…winning both the popular vote and the electoral college.

On MSNBC, Carol Leonnig of the Washington Post spoke with Hallie Jackson, Katy Tur, and Andrea Mitchell about the news, and described Thomas as Trump’s “henchwoman”. Thomas did this at the same time Trump summoned the leaders of the Michigan legislature, asking them to do the same thing.

Remember, this is the woman who called Anita Hill and asked her to apologize for hurting her husband. Hill actually thought it was a prank, it was that crazy. Thomas said, “Good morning Anita Hill, it’s Ginni Thomas. I just wanted to reach across the airwaves and the years and ask you to consider something. I would love you to consider an apology sometime and some full explanation of why you did what you did with my husband. So give it some thought. And certainly pray about this and hope that one day you will help us understand why you did what you did. O.K., have a good day.”

So, yeah. Ginni Thomas is a horrible woman and the fact that she’s a full blown MAGA should surprise no one.
