The hypocrisy of John Eastman

“The stakes are very high. If we don’t have fair elections, if we don’t have a rule of law in how those elections are conducted, then one of the most basic premises, the foundation stones of our country, is gone,” Eastman stated.

The very same Eastman whose only claim to fame is supposedly authoring the failed plan to steal the 2020 election.

If you’re innocent, John [b]why did you try to get on the list for a Quad Indicted pardon?[/b]

At one point on Thursday, the committee aired clips from a taped deposition of Eastman repeatedly responding to a committee lawyer’s questions by pleading his Fifth Amendment right against not incriminating himself. Overall, Aguilar said, Eastman pleaded the fifth “a hundred times.”


One Pence aide shared a conversation with Eastman in which he acknowledged that the move wouldn’t be upheld in the courts, including the Supreme Court. “I said, ‘John, if the Vice President did what you were asking him to do, we would lose nine to nothing in the Supreme Court, wouldn’t we?” Jacob recalled. “He initially said maybe we’d only lose seven to two, but ultimately acknowledged that, no, we would lose nine to nothing” Jacob said.


In another bombshell from the hearing, the committee showed a Jan. 11, 2021, email from Eastman requesting a pardon from Trump for his role in the attempts to stop the transfer of power to Biden.

“I’ve decided that I should be on the pardon list, if that is still in the works,” Eastman wrote to Trump’s personal attorney and confidant Rudy Guiliani, according to an email obtained by the Jan. 6 committee. Aguilar said Eastman did not get one. Trump publicly announced 143 pardons on the last night of his presidency. Eastman was not among them.

Well, Eastman is quite [b]stupid.[/b] But Tribe insists that Chesebro is much smarter. Chesebro worked for Tribe for more than 10 years and says he’s very bright—apparently bright enough to let Eastman take the “credit” as well as the “fall” for their little insurrection & coup attempt.
Do those folks believe in half the values they [b]claim[/b] to support, or is it all just sound bites ? 🙄
