Cheney, the vice chair of the select committee, said the bipartisan panel is engaged with Ginni Thomas’s counsel. Officials have also spoken to other figures who were similarly urging those close to former president Donald Trump to pursue efforts to overturn the 2020 election results, she said.
“We certainly hope that she will agree to come in voluntarily,” Cheney said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “But the committee is fully prepared to contemplate a subpoena if she does not. I hope it doesn’t get to that.”
Ginni Thomas’s text messages were among thousands of documents related to the Jan. 6 insurrection that former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows turned over to the House select committee investigating the attack before he abruptly stopped cooperating with the panel in December.
In some comments, Ginni Thomas zealously appealed to Meadows to help overturn the 2020 election results.
