Coup Memo attorney now accuses Mike Pence of not rejecting the election

Controversial right-wing lawyer and Donald Trump ally John Eastman admitted to a fan-posing progressive activist that he was counting on former Vice President Mike Pence to thwart American voters and overturn the 2020 presidential election.

But Pence turned out to be too big an “establishment guy, after all,” Eastman complained in the video.

Eastman made a terrible confession on Saturday Lauren Windsor from the massive political web TV show “The Undercurrent,” which pretended to be a “huge” Trump supporter and Eastman fan when she spoke to him at the annual gala of the right-wing Claremont Institute, where Eastman is a senior fellow. (Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was honored at an event in Huntington Beach, California.)

Eastman has been criticized for two notorious “coup memoranda” he wrote detailing several ways in which Pence – without any actual evidence of falsification – could challenge and manipulate the electoral vote to reduce Joe’s votes. Biden in the presidential election just enough to overturn the voters’ choice and toss the decision to the US House of Representatives.

Eastman, who is expected to be called in to testify before a special House committee investigating the January 6 uprising in the US Capitol, recently struggled to distance himself from his notes. He told The National Review in an interview earlier this month that Pence’s withdrawal from the electoral vote is “not sustainable,” and that it would be “insane” to pursue such a strategy.

He actually described himself in interviews as a “white knight hero” who dissuaded then-President Donald Trump from the ledge of more radical action, which he did not detail.

But in his conversation with Windsor – the day after the National Review interview was released – he boasted of his legal acumen and accused Pence of not unilaterally stripping voters of the right to elect the president. He said there was “no doubt” that his legal reasoning was “absolutely solid,” as Windsor described it.

Eastman was reportedly part of the Trump allies’ war room, which also included former Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani and former White House strategist Steve Bannon, who plotted at the Willard Hotel in Washington to overthrow Biden’s victory.

Eastman “outlined scenarios for refusing Biden the presidency” and “undermine[ing] voters’ will “also at a meeting in the White House on January 4 with Trump and Pence, according to The Washington Post.

The information about the behind-the-scenes plots to keep Trump in the White House, despite his election defeat, shapes the picture of the January 6 uprising more clearly as part of a pre-planned plan rather than a spontaneous riot by Trump supporters.
