Other emails, reported by the New York Times, reveal that Eastman messaged a pro-Trump lawyer claiming to have insight into a “heated fight” between Supreme Court justices over whether to hear an election case.

What they’re saying: “We think it’s time that we, at some point, invite her to come talk to the committee,” Chair Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) told Axios.

Thompson said of the committee’s reasoning, “We have discovered in those Eastman [emails] some information that refers to Ginni Thomas,” but declined to go into further detail about what she’ll be asked.
