Ginni Thomas: George Soros’ family ‘is really running the Democrat Party’ – The Jerusalem Post (wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas)

The latest prominent American to advance conspiracy theories about Jewish philanthropist George Soros: Ginni Thomas, a conservative activist and the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.

The idea that rich Jews are conspiring to secretly control world leaders is an age-old antisemitic stereotype.
Thomas has a history of sharing falsehoods from The Great American Movement Facebook page. In the past, she has shared false posts from the page accusing Democrats of committing voter fraud, calling California a “war zone” and claiming that Barack Obama wiretapped the Trump campaign.

Herd immunity: Scientists say Trump-endorsed COVID strategy is deadly

But now it appears that Miller never left the FDA. She’s still at the regulatory agency and has since been given a new—perhaps more prestigious—title. And as before, she is causing problems for the agency.

Miller is now the senior advisor to the chief of staff at the FDA. As an FDA employee, she has publicly promoted an unapproved drug as being “like a cure” for COVID-19 on Twitter. Her tweets support unproven and potentially dangerous statements from President Trump and may violate FDA regulations. The drug she promoted is currently being reviewed by the FDA for emergency use, raising concerns about the agency’s impartiality.

Though Miller’s Twitter account has been altered in recent days to remove her title at the FDA and any connection to the agency, she is still listed on the FDA’s website. The website does not list her new or old title, however.

DOJ Argues Trump Lied About Declassifying Russia Documents | Law & Crime

“The President has the authority to declassify documents that are otherwise currently and properly classified. The President has not exercised this authority with respect to any of the FD-302s remaining at issue in this case,” the DOJ wrote in its opposition motion to the news organizations, referring to FBI witness interview notes.

“The Court cannot infer that any such sweeping order exists based on the President’s Twitter statements because they merely suggest that the President ‘authorized’ the ‘declassification’ of unspecified information. The Twitter statements do not refer to any specific document and do not indicate that the President was exercising his Constitutional authority to declassify specific information. They were not an order to declassify particular material.”
