In another awkward video, “Gotcha”, lawyer for Donald Trump’s extremist team, John Eastman, criticized spineless Republican MPs who refused to reject the results of a legitimate presidential election.
Eastman bragged about a massive zoom conference call that he, Trump and former Trump personal attorney Rudy Giuliani attended with 300 Republican MPs following Joe Biden’s victory, urging them to release the election results.
“And all of them spineless will do nothing,” complained Eastman, the author of the infamous “coup memorandums” on how to usurp the choice of the US president by American voters. “Even though we gave them all the evidence … they wouldn’t have done it,” he added, apparently referring to non-existent evidence of electoral fraud.
“Look, I would really like it to be different,” he said. “But these guys are spineless. If we elect them for the primaries in 2022 and the precondition for being elected is that we fight it, maybe we will have the opportunity. “
Eastman was filmed (see below) a week ago by an activist reporter. Lauren Windsor the massive political web TV show “The Undercurrent”. She pretended to be a “big” fan of Trump and Eastman to encourage him to open up to her.
The attorney attended the annual gala of the conservative think tank Claremont Institute, where he is a senior fellow. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was honored at an event in Huntington Beach, California.
Windsor also recorded how Eastman lashed out at former Vice President Mike Pence for not publishing the 2020 election results. Eastman said he was too big an establishment guy to overthrow democracy.
The prosecutor also stabbed Pence in an email to an assistant vice president on January 6, as two men squatted while Capitol rebels flooded the building, demanding that Pence be “hanged.”
“The siege is about YOU and your boss not doing what was necessary to allow it to be broadcast publicly so the American people can see for themselves what happened,” Eastman reportedly wrote to Pence’s assistant Greg Jacob, having in mind to Trump’s baseless allegations of voter fraud.
Jacob later wrote in a draft column that was never released that Eastman and Giuliani were part of a “group of outside lawyers” who “spun a web of lies and misinformation” in an attempt to get Pence to betray his oath and the Constitution by rejecting electoral votes. Washington Post.
Eastman tried desperately to distance himself from his “coup notes”, telling National Review in a recent interview that someone had to be “crazy” to follow the strategy he laid out.
But his later comments indicate that he has not changed his previous position.
A special House commission investigating plans for the January 6 uprising is to summon Eastman to court.
