Text: Trump and His Lawyer Pressure Pence to Ignore Constitution.
Liz Cheney:
President Trump was told repeatedly that Mike Pence lacked the constitutional and legal authority to do what President Trump was demanding he do. / But President Trump plotted with a lawyer named John Eastman to pressure Pence to do so anyway. As the federal court has explained, “Based on the evidence, the court finds that it is more likely than not that President Trump and Dr. Eastman dishonestly conspired to obstruct the joint session of Congress on January 6th, 2021.”

Judge Luttig:
There was no basis in the Constitution or laws of the United States at all for the theory espoused by Mr. Eastman at all. None.

John Wood:
So even after the attack on the Capitol been quelled, Dr. Eastman requested, in writing no less, that the Vice President violate the law by delaying the certification and sending the question back to the states.
Is that correct, Mr. Jacob?

GREG JACOB:
It is.

Eric Herschmann:
He started to ask me about something dealing with Georgia and preserving something potentially for appeal. And I said to him, are you out of your f-ing mind? I said I only want to hear two words coming out of your mouth for now on, orderly transition. Eventually he said, orderly transition.

I said, good, John. Now I’m going to give you the best free legal advice you’re ever getting in your life. Get a great f-ing criminal defense lawyer. You’re going to need it.

Pete Aguilar:
A few days later, Dr. Eastman emailed Rudy Giuliani and requested that he be included on a list of potential recipients of a Presidential pardon. Dr. Eastman’s email stated quote, “I’ve decided that I should be on the pardon list if that is still in the works”.

Dr. Eastman did not receive his Presidential pardon.

John Eastman:
I assert my Fifth Amendment right against being compelled to be a witness against myself.

Pete Aguilar
“Dr. Eastman plead the fifth a hundred times.”
