Below are the emails they reported on.
In an email sent to a conservative listserv on Feb. 13 and obtained by The Daily Beast, Ginni Thomas asked an interesting question: How could she organize activists to push for Trump’s policies?
“What is the best way to, with minimal costs, set up a daily text capacity for a ground up-grassroots army for pro-Trump daily action items to push back against the left’s resistance efforts who are trying to make America ungovernable?” she wrote.
“I see the left has Daily Action @YourDailyAction and their Facebook likes are up to 61K,” she continued.
“But there are some grassroots activists, who seem beyond the Republican party or the conservative movement, who wish to join the fray on social media for Trump and link shields and build momentum,” she wrote. “I met with a house load of them yesterday and we want a daily textable tool to start… Suggestions?”
The group she referred to, Daily Action, encourages people who oppose Trump’s agenda to make a phone call every day on relevant issues—including the travel ban.
They explain just because a family member has a certain view on the executive order, it does not mean Thomas is required to excuse himself from this case if it reaches the Supreme Court.
However, some liberals on Twitter are already claiming he should not hear it.
Unfortunately, his critics attack him on a regular basis for being a black conservative. For example, he got maligned from leftists for giving the oath of office to Vice President Mike Pence.
Ultimately, it appears his wife has the right to support the executive order, and he can choose to hear the case.
What do you think about his wife? Comment below to let us know.
