The interview came after the committee attempted to contact Thomas, who told the Washington Beacon in March that her husband, the current longest-serving Supreme Court member, “doesn’t discuss his work with me, and I do not do it. I will not involve him in my work.
Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.), who chairs the committee, said the interview with Thomas was a “work in progress” and “at this point, we’re glad she came” to speak to the committee.
Trump told attendees of the Michigan rally on Saturday that Thomas, whom he called a “great woman” and wife of a “great man,” had “courage and strength” to back up his false claim of voter fraud.
“She didn’t wait and she sat down and said, ‘Well, let me give you maybe a different answer than I’ve been saying for the last two years,'” Trump said.
“No, no, she didn’t wither under pressure like so many others who are weak and stupid people,” Trump said.
