On Thursday, following the explosive new report that the House Select Committee investigating the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol has obtained text communications between former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows and far-right activist Ginni Thomas, conservative lawyer George Conway outlined the potential problems the developments create for Trump's inner circle.

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, he was quick to stress, may not have actually been seeking to directly shield his wife from investigation when he dissented from the ruling turning over materials from the National Archives to the committee — but, he noted, "it still ain't great".

Furthermore, he noted there is no credible way to claim that Thomas' communications with Meadows fall under executive privilege — which Trump's allies have broadly sought to claim as their reason for not cooperating with the committee, even though President Joe Biden has rejected these claims.
