image for Clarence Thomas Must Be 'Subpoenaed' to Testify Over Jan. 6: Lawyers

Lawyers Tristan Snell and Laurence Tribe took to Twitter this weekend, saying that Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas must be "subpoenaed to testify under oath" before hearing cases related to the January 6, 2021, Capitol riot.

"Ginni Thomas and Clarence Thomas must BOTH be subpoenaed to testify under oath before one of the grand juries hearing evidence about the January 6 coup," Snell tweeted on Friday.

On Saturday, Tribe agreed and tweeted: "They are at least material fact witnesses.

Clarence Thomas has faced numerous calls to resign and to be impeached due to his wife's alleged involvement in trying to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.

The texts showed Ginni Thomas' belief in widespread voter fraud and conspiracy theories that Joe Biden stole the election.

"Let me also add, it's laughable for anyone who knows my husband to think I could influence his jurisprudence.".

In addition, Agranoff thinks by Clarence Thomas recusing himself from cases involving his wife it would help the Court's integrity, doubting "very much" that the justice would resign. »
