January 6 Commission says Trump has violated multiple laws to overturn elections

The January 6 selection committee said that then-President Donald Trump and his campaign illegally interfered with Congress’s election vote count and were “engaged in a criminal plot to deceive the United States.” The evidence states that it is showing.

and Major release of the survey resultsThe Commission, filed in federal court late Wednesday, upheld the finding that the evidence violated multiple laws by Trump himself trying to prevent Congress from proving his defeat. Suggested.

“The Special Committee also has good faith grounds to conclude that the President and members of his campaign were involved in a criminal plot to deceive the United States,” the Commission told the US District Court in Central California. I wrote in the submitted documents.

The Commission said in a major release of the panel’s findings, including excerpts from nearly a dozen testimony records from top aides to Trump and former Vice President Mike Pence, that he lost the election and his fraud. The claims are groundless — just to reject them and continue to mislead the American people.

He then urged top advisors to continue strategically how to overturn election results.

The panel forces lawyer John Eastman, who was a major driver of Trump’s strategy to overturn the 2020 elections, to create an important email linking the elements of the plan they described. As part of the legal promotion to do so, we announced the results of the investigation. The panel details Eastman’s efforts to provide a legal strategy justifying Pence to order Pence to overthrow the election alone when he presided over a parliamentary ballot-counting session on January 6, 2021. Revealed the testimony that provided.

However, Eastman did not forgive even after a violent mob attacked by Trump attacked the Capitol and fled Pence and Congress for security.Eastman continued to put pressure on Pence to overturn the election

“Thanks to your bullshit, we are now under siege,” Pence lawyer Greg Jacob sent an email to Eastman with a long rebuttal to his argument.

“‘Siege’ allows Americans to see for themselves what happened because you and your boss didn’t do what it took to air it in public.” Eastman replied that it was an email received by the panel.

Even after this exchange, Eastman made the final plea to convince Pence to stop counting voters, a “relatively minor” violation of federal law known as Electoral College Law. I admitted that.

“The plaintiff knew that his proposal violated the law, but nevertheless urged the Vice President to take those actions,” the Commission wrote in its filings.

Chair Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) And Vice Chairman Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) In a statement late Wednesday, their fact-finding survey said, “Dr. Eastman’s e-mail blocked Donald Trump from counting ballots for the Electoral College and transferred power. It may indicate that it helped advance a corrupt plan to thwart the obstructive plot. “

As part of a bid to convince a federal judge to provide Eastman with his e-mail held by his former employer, Chapman University, to Congressional investigators, the special committee said. Revealed evidence. Eastman urged the Panel to block access to his Chapman email and claimed to reveal records protected by lawyer / client privileges.

However, Judge David Carter of the U.S. District Court, who repeatedly sentenced Eastman to the panel’s focus on potential crimes, said that all Eastman records are protected by privileges. You may be convinced that there isn’t.

California-based Carter Rejected Eastman’s attempt Protect his record, citing the urgency and importance of the selection committee’s work.Instead, Carter ordered Eastman Quickly check 90,000 pages Increase the number of emails and attachments and itemize what he thinks should be withheld due to the privileges of lawyers and clients. He has repeatedly agreed with the Commission’s request, including asking Eastman to prioritize emails sent between January 4th and January 7th, 2021. Force him to disclose his legal relationship with TrumpHas never been published before.

However, the Commission has shown that Eastman’s relationship with Trump cannot prove that he was legitimate.

According to the panel, Eastman wrote a letter identifying his client as a Trump campaign, but the letter remained unsigned. “This unsigned and uncertified contract is not enough to establish a lawyer-client relationship during the period of the problem,” House lawyer wrote.
