Supreme Court judge's wife urged 2020 US election overturn
Published in The Saudi Gazette on 25 - 03 - 2022

The wife of a US Supreme Court judge repeatedly pressed Trump White House staff to overturn the 2020 presidential election, US media has reported.
Virginia Thomas, wife of Justice Clarence Thomas, reportedly sent 29 text messages to former adviser Mark Meadows, urging him not to concede.
Thomas called Joe Biden's victory "the greatest heist of our history".
The texts are among 2,320 messages Meadows provided to a committee investigating the US Capitol riot.
In the text messages, seen by CBS News and The Washington Post, she urged Meadows, who was Donald Trump's chief of staff, to "make a plan" in a bid to save his presidency.
"Do not concede. It takes time for the army who is gathering for his back", she wrote on 6 November. It is unclear if Meadows responded.
Thomas also appeared to push QAnon conspiracy theories and urged Meadows to appoint Sidney Powell, a conspiracy theorist and lawyer, to head up Trump's legal team.
"Sounds like Sidney and her team are getting inundated with evidence of fraud," Thomas wrote. "Release the Kraken and save us from the left taking America down."
Mr Meadows told Ms Thomas that he intended to "stand firm" and said that he "will fight until there is no fight left".
The Trump campaign later distanced itself from Ms Powell, after she made dramatic claims of voter fraud, without providing any evidence, at several media events.
Virginia Thomas - who goes by Ginni - is a prominent Republican fundraiser. She was formerly associated with the Tea Party wing of the party, a hard-line conservative movement to which Meadows was also affiliated during his time in the House of Representatives.
She has been married to conservative-leaning Justice Clarence Thomas for 35 years, and has insisted her activist work has no influence on her husband's work with the Supreme Court.
In 2010, she made headlines for asking Anita Hill to apologise for accusing Mr Thomas of harassment during his confirmation hearings in 1991.
Clarence Thomas is the longest-serving member of the US Supreme Court, having served since 1991, and is currently in hospital with "flu-like" symptoms.
He is considered extremely influential in American law, but for much of his career rarely spoke or asked questions in court until 2016 when he broke a 10-year silence.
Since the Covid pandemic began, however, Thomas has become more vocal and participates in most oral arguments.
In February 2021 the Supreme Court rejected Donald Trump's challenges to the elections result, however Mr Thomas dissented from the decision, calling it "baffling". — BBC
