Trump lawyer offered six-point plan for Pence to overturn election

An attorney who worked with former President Trump's legal team tried to convince then-Vice President Mike Pence that he could overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election and provided him with a six-step plan, according to a new book from journalists Bob Woodward and Robert Costa.

CNN, citing a memo initially obtained by the book's authors, reported that attorney John Eastman first proposed the plan to Pence on Jan. 4 in the Oval Office with Trump. The memo called for throwing out the election results in seven states under the false claim that those states had used alternate electors.

The conservative lawyer also reportedly proposed that Pence could declare Trump the winner of the election after the votes were disposed of. -snip




Some are saying "this is proof Trump tried to overturn the election". Nay, this is more proof, as we have the threats to state officials, the pressure put on Pence, the insurrection.

Apparently Pence had to call Dan Quayle and ask him for advice in how to deal with this six-point-plan in carrying out a coup; Quayle was flabbergasted that Pence was even asking.

How anyone can still support Trump is beyond me, this was a legitimate attempt in overturning our legal election, not some imagined "Jade Helm" nonsense like Obama was supposed to do, this just happened to fail because certain people would not go along.

Oh my God! This is getting more and more surreal, did they really think they could get away with it.

Seems the goal was to throw out the election results in several keys states, then boot the election over to the then Republican controlled House, have them certify Trump as president for a 2nd term, Pence signing off, letting Trump continue as POTUS while the Democrats sued and it stayed tangled up in the courts for who knows how long, likely a few years.

Yeah, the coup attempt was real, it just failed because not enough people would go along. The insurrection was more pressure and the backup plan.

Just barely.


Remember when certain people scoffed at your claims from early 2020 that Trump would try a coup if he lost? Robtard remembers.

Pretty amazing how Pence had to call Quayle and ask for advice in how to proceed, when it's beyond obvious Pence should have struck down the insane proposal the moment he heard it.

Supposedly, Mike Pence wasn't even willing to get into a car operated by Secret Service.....

Even a brainlet like Dan Quayle immediately knew this was all BS.

The Trumper mind is a unique specimen of human idiocy.

that's disingenuous... no it isn't beyond you to expect or understand. they're a cult. trump could rape their whole families in front of them, and they'd still support him. you know this.

They called it the "command center," a set of rooms and suites in the Willard hotel a block from the White House where some of Donald Trump's most loyal lieutenants were working day and night with one goal in mind: overturning the results of the 2020 election.

The activities at the Willard that week add to an emerging picture of a less visible effort, mapped out in memos by a conservative pro-Trump legal scholar, and pursued by a team of presidential advisers and lawyers seeking to pull off what they claim was a legal strategy to reinstate Trump for a second term.

They were led by Trump's personal lawyer Rudolph W. Giuliani. Former chief White House strategist Stephen K. Bannon was an occasional presence as the effort's senior political adviser. Former New York City police commissioner Bernard Kerik was there as an investigator. Also present was John Eastman, the scholar, who outlined scenarios for denying Biden the presidency in an Oval Office meeting on January 4th with Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.

Clearly not that easy if these supposed geniuses haven't managed to take 1 step, let alone 6. Even more so when they've been continually outsmarted and outmaneuvered by a stuttering, mentally deficient, alzheimers sufferer.

Jokes asides, the authorities should investigate and see who was paying for Trump's insurrection "command center", it's it's tax dollars, that could be problematic.

"Eastman's email not only blames Pence for the violence, but also reinforces the lawyer's support for his coup strategy." -snip



And Pence is still sucking on Trump's cock, even after Trump put his life directly in danger by turning the unhinged mob of domestic terrorist on him. Too funny.

Blakemore
I thought Pence was done with Trump's rhetoric?

cdtm
If the left was smart, they'd be right there enacting their own coup.


Viva La Revolution used to be a thing. You are all fools if you think real change can come from within.

Blakemore
Right wingers have the money to nuke leftists, as they have done with countries throughout the world.

It's a losing battle. erm

Seems like an illegal use of campaign funds then?
