Fresh out of ending a weeklong hospital stay for an infection, 73-year-old Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and wife, conservative activist Ginni Thomas, were approached by CNN in his garage Friday. The pair, who are making headlines over leaked text messages from the House Committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, refuse to answer questions. "No thank you," remarked Clarence Thomas, who was wearing a blue button-down shirt, as his wife walked away without comment, CNN reported.

Text messages obtained by the committee and reported by CNN and others show Ginni Thomas pressing former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows to overturn the 2020 election. The revelation led at least one senator to demand for Justice Thomas to recuse himself from any Jan. 6 cases and Rep. Ilhan Omar, a Minnesota Democrat, to tweet that the Supreme Court justice "needs to be impeached."

She did attend the rally, but got cold and left early. And most importantly, in her view, her involvement with the event has no bearing on the work of her husband, Supreme Court justice Clarence Thomas. She asserted to the Washington Free Beacon this month that she and her husband keep their careers entirely separate from one another. "Like so many married couples, we share many of the same ideals, principles, and aspirations for America," Thomas told the Washington Free Beacon. "But we have our own separate careers, and our own ideas and opinions too. Clarence doesn’t discuss his work with me, and I don’t involve him in my work,” she insisted. Though Thomas has taken steps to adjust her public profile, such as deleting her Facebook page, she has no plans to curtail her professional activities. In a wide-ranging interview, Thomas spoke for the first time about a series of recent news reports linking her with the events of Jan. 6 and alleging Mrs. Thomas's activities create a conflict of interest for her husband and undermine the Supreme Court's standing with the public.

In January, the Supreme Court cold-shoulder former president Donald Trump's request to quash a House subpoena for White House records relating to the 2020 elections. Justice Thomas was the sole member of the Court to publicly note his dissent.
