The Claremont Institute is attempting to assert that the John Eastman Trump coup memo wasn’t actually a coup memo, so Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) hit them with the details.

The Proper Is Attempting To Make The Proof Of Trump’s Coup Vanish

The John Eastman memo was the six level plan for Trump to hold out a coup to remain in energy that concerned Vice President Pence, Reps. Kevin McCarthy and Steve Scalise, together with Supreme Court docket Justice Alito.

It’s written proof that Trump was attempting to overturn a democratic election to remain in energy.

The Claremont Institute tried to inform a special story, however Rep. Ted Lieu wasn’t having it:

`Rep. Lieu was right. The memo isn’t pretend information. The plan was made clear, and it hinged on Mike Pence creating chaos by refusing to certify the election, which would then allow McCarthy and Scalise to file a lawsuit, and Justice Alito to issue an injunction blocking the certification of the election, which might then throw it again to the states with the purpose of getting the Home delegations resolve, the place Republicans have a majority to declare Trump the winner.

Nancy Pelosi saved the day by quicking reconvening Congress to certify the outcomes after the 1/6 assault. Pence didn’t play alongside, so McCarthy and Scalise by no means had time to file their lawsuit, and democracy was saved.

Republicans try to rewrite historical past, which is why they’re fearful of the 1/6 investigation, and what it’s more likely to uncover.
