Mary Bancroft – Master Spy

“I can’t understand what the f–k you are saying.” The voice came from an elderly lady in the back row of my computer class. It was from Mary Bancroft, a part owner of The Wall Street Journal. She is the author of Autobiography of a Spy and was the woman behind the plot to kill Hitler, the lover of CIA chief, Allen Dulles, the lady who invited me to dinner to meet Woody Allen and, yes, Mary Bancroft was my computer student.

Shortly after the 2020 election, Virginia “Ginni” Thomas, the conservative activist and wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, sent an email to an aide to a prominent House conservative saying she would have nothing to do with his group until his members go “out in the streets,” a congressional source familiar with the exchange revealed.

Thomas told an aide to incoming Republican Study Committee Chairman (RSC) Jim Banks, R-Ind., that she was more aligned with the far-right House Freedom Caucus, whose leaders just two months later would lead the fight in Congress to overturn the results of Democrat Joe Biden’s victory.

Thomas wrote to the aide that Freedom Caucus members were tougher than RSC members, were in the fight and had then-President Donald Trump’s back, fully supporting him, according to the source familiar with the email contents.

Until she saw RSC members “out in the streets” and in the fight, she said, she would not help the RSC.

Her November 2020 email came in response to a request from the RSC to offer policy recommendations as Banks was set to take the helm of the group in early 2021. But when Thomas portrayed the RSC as soft in its support for Trump and told its members to take to the streets, the aide thanked her for her suggestions and moved on.

January 6th RSC committee members are now debating whether to summon Thomas to speak to the panel or to issue a subpoena for her records. But until now, the committee has been reluctant to go down the path of investigating the wife of Supreme Court justice Clarence Thomas even though he was deeply involved.

On March 29, U.S. Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas should recuse himself from any cases about the January 6th, 2021, attack on the Capitol by Donald Trump’s followers.

Schumer became the highest-ranking Democrat to make that request of conservative Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas after the Washington Post and CBS News reported on text messages showing that Thomas’s wife Virginia Thomas, a conservative activist, urged Mark Meadows, Trump’s then-chief of staff, to work to overturn Democrat Joe Biden’s November 2020 election win and declare Donald Trump the winner of the presidential election.

“I do think he should recuse himself,” Schumer said of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. “The information we have right now raises serious questions about how close Justice Thomas and his wife were to the planning and execution of the insurrection.”

“We have a list of people that we’re looking at who helped finance or organize” the January 6th rally, one RSC committee member stated “My understanding is on the broader list, she is there. But we have not made a determination whether or not that information makes her a target of the committee.”

The email exchange suggests Thomas was pressuring Republicans in Congress to get more aggressive in fighting for Trump at a key moment when the lame-duck president and his inner circle were devising a strategy to overturn the results of the 2020 election and keep him in power.

On November 10th, three days after networks had projected that Biden was the winner, Ginni Thomas railed at congressional Republicans, saying she wished more of them were lining up behind Trump and “out in street rallies” with his grassroots supporters who were furious about the election, the two news outlets reported.

“House and Senate guys are pathetic too… only 4 GOP House members seen out in street rallies with grassroots… Gohmert, Jordan, Gosar, and Roy,” Thomas texted, apparently referencing a quartet of Freedom Caucus members: Reps. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas; Jim Jordan, R-Ohio; Paul Gosar, R-Ariz.; and Chip Roy, R-Texas.

Just days later, Representative Louie Gohmert appeared at a “Million MAGA March” near the White House and told Trump supporters, “This was a cheated election, and we can’t let it stand.” He talked about “revolution.”

Ginni Thomas said she attended the January 6th “Stop the Steal” rally near the White House that preceded the deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol. And her involvement in pressuring and advising leaders in both the executive branch and legislative branch on efforts to overturn the presidential election are raising significant questions that her political activism created a conflict of interest for her husband, Justice Clarence Thomas, who may have to decide additional cases relating to the special House investigation into the January 6th attack.

In January, the Supreme Court rejected Trump’s argument that executive privilege prevented the January 6th panel from accessing a trove of records from the Trump White House. Clarence Thomas was the only justice who indicated the court should grant Trump’s motion to block the National Archives from handing over the material.

“Justice Clarence Thomas was the sole member of the Supreme Court who voted to withhold have records from Trump, Meadows, et al to be withheld from House January 6th Committee.”

Senator Tim Kaine, D-Va., tweeted Friday. “He did not explain his reasoning. We need answers.”

“At the bare minimum, Justice Thomas needs to recuse himself from any case related to the January 6th investigation,” Senator Ron Wyden, D-Ore., said, “and should Donald Trump run again, any case related to the 2024 election.”

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has called on Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas to resign from the nation’s highest court as a growing number of Democrats demand he recuse himself from some cases following revelations that his wife urged then-White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows to help overturn the 2020 election results. She even called on Democrats to explore impeachment if Justice Clarence Thomas doesn’t step down — pointing out that Thomas was the lone dissenting vote on the court earlier this year to block the January 6th committee from obtaining Trump White House records.

In a recent interview with the Washington Free Beacon, Ginni Thomas said she and her husband “share many of the same ideals, principles, and aspirations for America” but 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 said (if you can believe that).

Just hours after the January 6th attack, Banks, who is in his second and final year as RSC chairman, objected to the certification of Electoral College votes from both Arizona and Pennsylvania, arguing that some governors and local officials changed the rules of the election due to the pandemic. He has said Biden is the president and has not echoed Trump in talking about unsubstantiated allegations of widespread voter fraud in the election.

If the RSC investigation leads to the knowledge that Donald Trump and others committed treason, the penalty, according to the Constitution the penalty can be severe.

Only one person has ever been executed for treason against the federal government: William Bruce Mumford, who was convicted of treason and hanged in 1862 for tearing down a United States flag during the American Civil War.
