Ginni Thomas could be subpoenaed by January 6 committee, says Liz Cheney


Rep. Liz Cheney, a Wyoming Republican who serves as the committee’s vice chair, told CNN’s Jack Tapper on “State of the Union” Sunday that the committee is talking to Thomas’ attorney.

“We certainly hope she’ll agree to come in voluntarily, but if she doesn’t, the committee is fully prepared to consider a subpoena. I hope it doesn’t come to that. I hope she’ll come in voluntarily,” Cheney said. “So it’s very important for us to speak to her, and as I said, I hope she agrees to do so voluntarily, but I’m sure if she doesn’t agree, we’ll consider a subpoena.”

The committee has asked Thomas, a conservative activist, to meet with the panel and provide documents that may be relevant to the investigation. The committee has email correspondence between Thomas and former President Donald Trump’s election attorney John Eastman, as well as texts between her and Trump’s White House chief of staff Mark Meadows. The text shows Thomas urging Meadows to continue his fight to overturn the 2020 presidential election result. Eastman and Meadows were also the subject of the committee’s investigation.

Thomas’ attorney said in a letter to a House select committee last month that he “does not believe there is an adequate basis to speak to” Thomas at this time.

No decision has been made on Trump’s criminal referral

Cheney also said the committee has not yet decided whether to make a criminal referral to President Donald Trump, but she believes that Trump violated his oath of office, which is “definitely something we’re looking at.”

“I think Donald Trump’s violation of his inaugural oath, against the Constitution he engaged in, is the most serious misconduct by any president in the history of our country. I don’t think, as I said, the committee has yet decided whether we will Making criminal referrals. It’s something we take very seriously. I would also say that the Department of Justice is certainly very concerned about history based on the largest criminal investigation in America that we’ve seen publicly. But there is no doubt in my mind that the president of the United States is not suitable for continue to serve.”

Cheney also said she found the missing Secret Service texts “deeply disturbing.”

“I also know that what has happened over the course of what we have learned over the past few weeks is deeply disturbing,” she said. “We will find out.”

Cheney on her future

Cheney said her work on the Jan. 6 committee “was the most important thing I’ve ever done in my career,” telling Tapper that even if she loses her upcoming re-election campaign because of her committee work, “no No doubt” is still worth serving it.

She called her primary “a very unusual moment, certainly in American politics.”

“I’ll say the same thing, and I’m not going to lie. I’m not going to say untrue things about the election,” she said. “My opponents do this of course just to get elected … Constitution and truth are chosen every day.”
