Six Easy Steps In Pulling Off Your Own Coup

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.

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.

Speaking privately to former Vice President Dan Quayle, who oversaw the certification of the 1992 election in which he was on the losing ticket, Pence appeared open to going along with Trump's plan, pushed the false claim that Arizona's voting results were wrong, and asked whether there was any way he could delay certification. Pence told him that Trump was convinced that Pence could throw out the election results in order to keep himself in power.

"Mike, you have no flexibility on this," Quayle told Pence. "None. Zero. Forget it. Put it away."

"I know, that's what I've been trying to tell Trump," Pence said. "But he really thinks he can. And there are other guys in there saying I've got this power." Pence then echoed Trump's false claims of election fraud. "Well, there's some stuff out in Arizona," Pence said.

“Mike, I live in Arizona," Quayle said. "There's nothing out here."

A conservative lawyer working with Donald Trump's legal team tried to convince Mike Pence that he could overturn the election results on January 6th when Congress counted the Electoral College votes by throwing out electors from seven states, according to the new book Peril from Bob Woodward and Robert Costa.

The scheme put forward by controversial lawyer John Eastman was outlined in a two-page memo obtained by the authors for Peril. The memo, which has not previously been made public, provides new detail showing how Trump and his team tried to persuade Pence to subvert the Constitution and throw out the election results on January 6th.

The centerpiece of the plan conceived by Eastman called for Pence to recognize multiple slates of electors in seven states. In actuality, there was only one slate of electors in all 50 states. The seven slates referenced by Trump's attorney were comprised of Trump cronies and did not have any actual power.

But that was immaterial to Eastman. All Pence needed to do, according to his scheme, was announce that no electors could be appointed from those states—essentially wiping them off the board.

From there, Eastman believed Trump only needed to gain a simple majority of the remaining 454 electoral votes. With the seven states out, Trump—in Eastman's tally—would have prevailed 232:222.

Eastman was also behind Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton's failed Supreme Court attempt to overturn the election results in swing states.

I do remember well. I cringe at it too.

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.

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