Thomas attracted public attention in May when The Washington Post and TBEN got posts after the 2020 election between her and Mark Meadows, White House chief of staff for the Trump administration. In the posts, Thomas reiterated refuting conspiracy theories that Trump’s election was stolen.

“Help this great president stand firm Mark!!! …,” Thomas said in one message. “You are the leader, along with him, who stands before America’s constitutional governance on the brink. The majority knows that Biden and the left are attempting the greatest heist in our history.”

Thomas also urged Republican lawmakers in Arizona and Wisconsin, the major Biden-won states, to reject the election results and for each to choose a “clean slate of voters” to cast votes in the Electoral College, according to emails later obtained by the After.

“Please stand strong in the face of the media and political pressure,” reads one of the Nov. 9 emails reportedly sent by Thomas after Biden’s election win. “Please think about the awesome authority our Constitution has bestowed on you.”

Thomas reportedly used FreeRoots, a platform to send pre-written emails to multiple elected officials.

Thomas’s check continued in the summer after the After and The New York Times reported that she had been in contact with John Eastman, a lawyer for the Trump campaign. While the content of their communications has not been disclosed, the coverage suggested Thomas may have played a deeper role in his efforts to keep Trump in office.

Eastman has reportedly developed a strategy to pressure then Vice President Mike Pence not to certify the election results during a joint session of Congress, an action legal experts consider illegal.
