In another awkward videotape of “gotcha,” extremist Donald Trump team lawyer John Eastman condemned the “spineless” Republican state legislators who did not reject the results of the legitimate presidential election.
Eastman boasted of a mass conference call zoom involving himself, Trump and Trump’s former personal attorney Rudy Giuliani with 300 Republican state legislators Joe Bidenvictory, urging them to discard the election results.
“And everyone without a spine wouldn’t do anything,” complained Eastman, the author of the infamous “impact notes”On how to usurp the choice of American voters for president. “Even though we gave them all the evidence … we wouldn’t do that,” he added, apparently referring to non-existent evidence of voter fraud.
“Look, I really wish it was different,” he said. “But these guys are spineless. If we exclude them in the primary elections in 2022 and the precondition for the election is that we will fight these things, we may have a chance. “
Eastman was videotaped a week ago (see below) by an activist journalist Lauren Windsor mass political online television broadcasts “Downstream.” She pretended to be a “huge” fan of Trump and Eastman to encourage him to open up to her.
The lawyer attended the annual gala event for the Conservative Brain Trust Claremont Institute, where he is a senior associate. Governor of Florida Ron DeSantis was honored at the event in Huntington Beach, California.
Windsor also filmed Eastman blowing up the former vice president Mike Pence because he did not publish the 2020 election results. He was fair too »establishment type at the end of the day, ”to overthrow democracy, Eastman said.
A lawyer Pence was also hit in an email to the vice presidential aide Jan. 6, when two men hid in a hiding place while rioters from the Capitol flooded the building and demanded that Pence be “hanged.”
“‘Siege’ is because YOU and your boss did not do what was necessary to allow this to be broadcast in public so that Americans could see for themselves what happened, ”Eastman reportedly wrote to Pence aide Greg Jacob, citing Trump’s unsubstantiated allegations of voter fraud.
Jacob later wrote in a draft column that was never published that Eastman and Giuliani were part of a “Cadres of outside lawyers” who “weaved a web of lies and disinformation ”in an attempt to pressure Pence to issue his oath and constitution by refusing to vote, The Washington Post reports.
Eastman desperately tried to distance himself from his “strike memoranda,” saying in a recent interview with the National Review that someone would have to be “crazy” to follow the strategy he had outlined.
But his recent comments show he has not changed his previous position.
