Appearing on MSNBC’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday, Raskin was asked by host Major Garrett if the Jan. 6 Committee still had interest in obtaining a testimony from Ginni Thomas. Raskin declined to speak for the whole panel, but said he personally believed she should testify.
“Speaking as one member and only as one member, I would say she has a relevant testimony to render,” the Georgia representative said. “And she should come forward and give it. “I don’t want to overstate her role. We’ve talked to more than 1,000 people. But we’d like to hear from [Newt] Gingrich and we’d like to hear from her too.”
Ginni has peaked many’s interest once again after a watchdog group obtained emails from her, asking Wisconsin state Sen. Kathy Bernier (R) and state Rep. Gary Tauchen (R) to overturn the 2020 presidential election results.
“This responsibility is yours and yours alone — it doesn’t rest with any Board of Elections, Secretary of State, Governor, or even court,” she wrote to the two lawmakers. “And it certainly doesn’t rest with the media. That’s why I am writing today to urge you to do your Constitutional duty. Please stand strong in the face of political and media pressure. Please reflect on the awesome authority granted to you by our Constitution. And then please take action to ensure that a clean slate of Electors is chosen for our state.”
The emails were sent on November 9, just two days after Joe Biden was declared the winner.
Vice Chairwoman Liz Cheney has stated that the committee is fully willing to subpoena Ginni Thomas if she refuses to cooperate with the investigation and testify.
