During MSNBC’s The Cross Connection on Saturday, host Tiffany Cross wondered if Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’s wife Ginni Thomas would be “mistreated” for her actions around former President Trump who challenged the results of the 2020 elections.

Cross said he believed Thomas deserved it for his “violation of the law” or violation of “ethical norms” in promoting Trump’s stolen election claim.

His host agreed, saying that if Thomas didn’t face the consequences, they might as well “pack up and go home”.

Thomas was summoned to testify to the Committee on January 6 for his alleged communications with Trump election attorney John Eastman days before the January 6, 2021 uprising on Capitol Hill.

The MSNBC report said Ginni Thomas may have provided details to Eastman on how the Supreme Court was ruling the 2020 Republican election cases.

Fox News reported Saturday that “the committee’s initial goal in questioning Thomas is to determine his role, if any, in Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election,” although the MSNBC host believed that the verdict was already out.

During the segment with guest speaker and former presidential campaign manager Joe Walsh Lucy Caldwell, the host played a short clip from her MSNBC colleague Joy Reid’s Thursday night show, in which Reid spoke with Rep Pete Aguilar , D-California, on how the committee plans to handle Thomas’s testimony.

“At least part of the belief here that Virginia Thomas might have known what was the basis of the belief that the Supreme Court would not uphold the case concerning the attempted election steal,” he told Aguilar, a member of the Jan.6 panel, prodding him about that. that the committee thinks of Thomas’s conduct.

She then asked, “Or is it the idea of ​​trying to find out if your husband Clarence Thomas was somehow aware of his wife’s decision to try to overturn the election?” Although Aguilar said, “Yes, I will not go into any of the investigative questions we would offer.”

“Again it’s just about gathering information,” Aguilar added in the clip, before Cross spoke again. Despite Aguilar’s claim that the Jan.6 Committee is merely investigating, Cross spoke as though Thomas was guilty and deserved to be jailed or punished by law in some way.

“I mean, I listen to this, and I see this show and my question is: Will Ginni Thomas be stalked? Because she is clearly violating ethics and it definitely looks like it’s a violation of the law.”

He then asked Caldwell, “Will this still matter, Lucy – for the people who are so focused on the Court – is the integrity of the court important at this point?”

Caldwell began by stating that she does not think Republican voters “will be motivated by any of this because they clearly have a number of problems motivating how they vote,” which she believes were outside “democratic norms.” “.

The host later broke into Thomas, claiming, “As for the fact that Thomas, you know, is finally going to have consequences, I just think it’s really important to remember that this isn’t Ginni Thomas’s first rodeo. Icarus-like figure flying a little too close to the sun once or twice before. “

She insinuated more conspiracy between Thomas and the Supreme Court, adding, “Ginni Thomas checks Clarence Thomas’ employee alumni email list, right? This is not a woman who, you know, just wants to have a civilized life all. his, who happens to marry a Supreme Court judge. “

“This is a woman who is actively using her role to benefit financially, to benefit her causes in a way that is completely out of the ordinary,” Caldwell added, before concluding, “If Ginni Thomas doesn’t have to face the consequences of this particular episode, then I think we almost all need to pack up and go home. “
