OMG, Mrs. Thomas asked me to give an update about election litigation to her group. Stop the Presses!
One wonders when the legacy media will quit allowing themselves to be played by false innuendo based on selective leaks from the January 6 Committee. Yesterday, the Washington Post ran with a story that I’d had email communication with Ginni Thomas back in early December 2020. Others have tried to tie that to a statement I reportedly made in an email some weeks later, in which I reportedly stated that “I understand that there is a heated fight underway” at the Supreme Court over whether the Court should take the various election cases that were pending on its docket. Recall that the story about a heated fight at the Court over the election cases was the subject of news accounts at the time. See, e.g., Neil Campbell, Rumors Chief Justice Roberts Shouted Down His Peers Over Texas Case Emerge During Electoral College Vote, Vision Times (Dec. 20, 2020), at https://www.visiontimes.com/2020/12/20/rumors-chief-justice-roberts-shouted-down-his-peers-over-texas-case-emerge-during-electoral-college-vote.html. Whether or not those news accounts were true, 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 discussions, and did not do so in December 2020 or anytime else. As for the email communications I had with Mrs. Thomas? As you can see for yourselves, she invited me to give an update about election litigation to a group she met with periodically. Those from the January 6 committee who leaked a false impression about that email should be ashamed of themselves, but the Post should be embarrassed for running a story based on their false innuendo.
