Virginia "Ginni" Thomas, the prominent far-right conspiracy theorist and wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, apologized to her husband's clerks after supporting the rally before the deadly riot at the Capitol on January 6.
"I owe you all an apology. I have likely imposed on you my lifetime passions," she said in an email obtained by The Washington Post.
The email was sent to a listserv called Thomas Clerk World of her husband's staffers from his three decades on the court, according to The Post.
Ginni Thomas had posted on Facebook in support of the "Stop the Steal" rally in Washington, DC, that morphed into an insurrection that left five people dead.
"My passions and beliefs are likely shared with the bulk of you, but certainly not all. And sometimes the smallest matters can divide loved ones for too long," Thomas said in the email obtained by The Post. "Let's pledge to not let politics divide THIS family, and learn to speak more gently and knowingly across the divide."
Thomas has been a stalwart supporter of former President Donald Trump, often posting misspelled messages and memes about him on her Facebook page alongside conspiracy theories about the liberal financier and Holocaust survivor George Soros, Barack Obama, and the special counsel Robert Mueller. She's also maintained ties to right-wing, Trump-allied political organizations including the Daily Caller Foundation and Turning Point USA.
In a Facebook post on the morning of January 6, Thomas said "GOD BLESS EACH OF YOU STANDING UP or PRAYING" and linked to a livestream of the rally where Trump spoke. She later added a note that the post was "written before the violence in the US Capitol."
Thomas's Facebook page was taken down on January 8.

More than 200 people have been charged in the Capitol insurrection, and federal prosecutors are continuing to file new charges. Trump's relentless pushing of the conspiracy theory that he actually won the 2020 election against Joe Biden led the House to impeach him in mid-January.
Thomas said in the email that she was disappointed by Trump's defeat.
"Many of us are hurting, after leaving it all on the field, to preserve the best of this country," she wrote.
