GOP Plans To ‘Take The Next Election Regardless Of Who Wins’ Harvard Constitutional Scholar Says
by Joy Reid
Apr 29, 2022




Republicans are planning to steal the 2024 presidential election a conservative judge has warned. Harvard constitutional scholar Laurence Tribe joins Joy Reid on what, "is being bandied about as the technique that they hope to use if they get Gorsuch and Kavanaugh and Alito and Thomas on board... to take the next election regardless of who wins."

0:00
"THE REIDOUT" WITH JOY REID IS
0:01
UP NEXT.
0:05
>>> GOOD EVENING, EVERYONE.
0:06
WE BEGIN "THE REIDOUT" WITH WHAT
0:09
SURE LOOKS LIKE A GROWING CIVIL
0:12
WAR INSIDE THE SAME POLITICAL
0:13
PARTY THAT IS DOING MORE THAN
0:15
JUST A LITTLE FLIRTING WITH
0:17
INSURRECTION.
0:17
WE ARE AWAITING NEWS FROM THE
0:18
JANUARY 6 COMMITTEE THAT IS
0:20
INVESTIGATING ROUND ONE OF THAT
0:22
ATTEMPT TO REPLACE AMERICAN
0:24
DEMOCRACY WITH SOMETHING MORE
0:26
AUTHORITARIAN.
0:26
THE COMMITTEE IS EXPECTED TO
0:27
ISSUE LETTERS TO AT LEAST THREE
0:29
REPUBLICANS ASKING THEM TO
0:31
TESTIFY.
0:31
THE COMMITTEE IS ALSO MOVING
0:32
FORWARD WITH PLANS TO HOLD ITS
0:34
FIRST PUBLIC HEARINGS IN JUNE.
0:36
BUT THE LAST FEW WEEKS HAVE
0:38
BEEN -- THEY HAVE BEEN FULL OF
0:40
SIGNS OF SOMETHING -- SOMETHING
0:42
ODD HAPPENING INSIDE WHAT HAD
0:44
FELT LIKE AN ENTIRELY UNIFIED
0:47
REPUBLICAN PARTY.
0:48
UNITED PARTICULARLY AROUND
0:49
DONALD TRUMP AND AROUND FIXING
0:51
WHAT WENT WRONG IN ROUND ONE OF
0:52
THE ATTEMPTED COUP.
0:54
THERE ARE THE LEAKS, LEAKS AND
0:55
MORE LEAKS OF KEVIN McCARTHY
0:57
SAYING ONE THING AND DOING
0:59
ANOTHER, WHICH SEEMED TO BE
0:59
COMING FROM INSIDE THE HOUSE
1:00
WITH A LOT OF FINGER POINTING
1:02
OVER PRECISELY WHO THE SOURCE OR
1:06
SOURCES MIGHT BE.
1:07
BUT IT ALSO SEEMS LIKE
1:08
REPUBLICANS ARE TRYING TO CULL
1:10
AT LEAST OIN SUR REKZIST FROM
1:12
THE HERD, AND THAT WOULD BE
1:13
MADISON CAWTHORN, THE FRESHMAN
1:16
CONGRESSMAN FROM NORTH CAROLINA.
1:17
YOU WILL RECALL THAT HE SAID
1:18
THIS ON JANUARY 6th.
1:20
>> THE DEMOCRATS WITH ALL THE
1:23
FRAUD THEY HAVE DONE IN THIS
1:25
ELECTION, THE REPUBLICANS HIDING
1:27
AND NOT FIGHTING, THEY ARE
1:29
TRYING TO SILENCE YOUR VOICE.
1:32
MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT, THEY
1:34
DO NOT WANTING YOU TO BE HEARD.
1:36
>> SO THAT LIE AND THE
1:40
EXHORTATION TO FIGHT ARE NOT WHY
1:42
CAWTHORN SEEMS TO BE A TARGET
1:43
RIGHT NOW.
1:45
I'M NOT GOING TO GET INTO THE
1:47
LATEST REVELATION BECAUSE IT'S
1:48
JUST TOO WEIRD, NOR HAVE ANY OF
1:51
THE YOUNGEST MEMBER OF CONGRESS'
1:53
OTHER ANTICS CAUSED THE
1:57
REPUBLICAN IRE.
1:58
SEXUAL MISCONDUCT IN COLLEGE,
2:01
CALLING THE PRESIDENT OF UKRAINE
2:02
A THUG, ALL FINE AND ALL GOOD
2:04
WITH THE REPUBLICAN PARTY.
2:05
IT WASN'T UNTIL YOUNG MADISON
2:07
STARTED FLINGING AROUND
2:08
ACCUSATIONS OF COLLEAGUES
2:10
INVITING HIM TO ORGIES AND
2:11
OFFERING HIM COCAINE.
2:13
SORRY, I KNOW THIS IS A FAMILY
2:15
HOUR, BUT IT WAS ONLY THEN THAT
2:17
HIS FELLOW REPUBLICANS AND
2:19
REPUBLICAN LEADERSHIP SAID HOLD
2:20
UP, MADISON.
2:21
KEVIN McCARTHY GAVE HIM A
2:23
TALKING TO AND SAID THAT HE HAD
2:24
LOST HIS TRUST.
2:25
NORTH CAROLINA SENATOR RICHARD
2:26
BURR CALLED HIM AN EMBARRASSMENT
2:28
AT TIMES.
2:30
THE OTHER NORTH CAROLINA
2:30
SENATOR, THOM TILLIS, SAID I
2:33
WANT A DELEGATION THAT WORKS
2:34
TOGETHER.
2:34
I DON'T WANT A DELEGATION THAT
2:36
GETS TOGETHER MINUS ONE AND
2:38
TALKS ABOUT THE CHALLENGES THAT
2:39
THAT MEMBER IS CAUSING.
2:41
CLEARLY MEANING MADISON
2:44
CAWTHORN.
2:44
AND IT APPEARS THAT MADISON IS
2:46
NOW IN THE PROVERBIAL FINDING
2:49
OUT PHASE WITH LEAK AFTER LEAK
2:51
AFTER LEAK OF SALACIOUS
2:53
ALLEGATIONS AND REPEATED CALLS
2:54
FOR ETHICS INVESTIGATIONS.
2:57
IN OTHER WORDS, REPUBLICANS CAN
2:59
DISCIPLINE THEIR OWN WHEN THEY
3:02
WANT TO.
3:02
WHILE CIRCLING THE WAGONS AROUND
3:04
THE OTHER LOUDEST
3:06
INSURRECTIONIST, PAUL GOSAR,
3:10
MARGIE GREENE, LAUREN BOEBERT
3:12
AND OTHERS, IT IS VERY, VERY
3:15
WEIRD.
3:15
BUT REPUBLICANS DO SEEM TO AGREE
3:17
100% THAT THEY ARE ALL IN
3:18
GETTING IT RIGHT IF AND WHEN
3:20
THEY REPEAT THE COUP NEXT TIME.
3:22
THAT IS THE WARNING FROM RETIRED
3:24
CONSERVATIVE FEDERAL JUDGE
3:26
MICHAEL J.LUDDIG.
3:29
A PERENNIAL SUPREME COURT
3:31
SHORT-LISTER AND TED CRUZ'S
3:32
FORMER MENTOR.
3:33
HE ALSO ADVISED FORMER VICE
3:36
PRESIDENT MIKE PENCE AGAINST
3:37
OVERTURNING THE 2020 ELECTION.
3:39
AND NOW MICHAEL LUDDIG IS
3:41
SOUNDING THE ALARM ABOUT THE
3:43
REPUBLICAN BLUEPRINT TO STEAL
3:45
THE NEXT ELECTION.
3:46
HE WRITES THAT LIES ABOUT VOTER
3:48
FRAUD ARE THE SHINY OBJECT THAT
3:50
REPUBLICANS HAVE TAUNTINGLY AND
3:54
DISINGENUOUSLY DANGLED FOR
3:55
ALMOST A YEAR AND A HALF TO
3:56
DISTRACT ATTENTION.
3:59
TRUMP'S AND THE REPUBLICANS' FAR
4:01
MORE AMBITIOUS OBJECTIVE IS TO
4:03
EXECUTE SUCCESSFULLY IN 2024 THE
4:05
SAME PLAN THEY FAILED IN
4:07
EXECUTING IN 2020 AND TO
4:09
OVERTURN THE 2024 ELECTION IF
4:11
TRUMP OR HIS ANOINTED SUCCESSOR
4:14
LOSES AGAIN IN THE NEXT
4:16
QUADRENNIAL CONTEST.
4:19
LUDDIG CALLS 2020 A DRY RUN FOR
4:22
THE NEXT ELECTION AND LAYS OUT
4:25
STEP-BY-STEP THEIR INTENTIONS.
4:26
AS IT STANDS TODAY TRUMP AND/OR
4:29
HIS ANOINTED SUCCESSOR, THE
4:30
REPUBLICANS ARE POISED IN THEIR
4:32
WORD TO STEAL FROM DEMOCRATS THE
4:34
PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION IN 2024
4:35
THAT THEY FALSELY CLAIMED THE
4:37
DEMOCRATS STOLE FROM THEM IN
4:38
2020.
4:39
BUT THERE IS A DIFFERENCE
4:40
BETWEEN THE FALSELY CLAIMED
4:41
STOLEN ELECTION OF 2020 AND WHAT
4:44
WOULD BE THE STOLEN ELECTION OF
4:46
2024.
4:47
UNLIKE THE DEMOCRATS' THEFT
4:49
CLAIMED BY REPUBLICANS, THE
4:51
REPUBLICANS' THEFT WOULD BE AN
4:53
OPEN DEFIANCE OF THE POPULAR
4:54
VOTE AND, THUS, THE WILL OF THE
4:56
AMERICAN PEOPLE.
4:58
POETIC, THOUGH TRAGIC IRONY FOR
5:00
AMERICA'S DEMOCRACY.
5:01
JOINING ME NOW IS LAWRENCE
5:04
TRIBE, THE UNIVERSITY PROFESSOR
5:05
OF CONSTITUTIONAL LAW AT HARVARD
5:07
LAW SCHOOL.
5:07
PROFESSOR TRIBE, IT'S ALWAYS
5:09
GOOD TO TALK WITH YOU.
5:12
AND HAD THIS COME FROM A LIBERAL
5:16
JURIST, SOMEBODY WHO ALIGNED
5:19
THEMSELVES IDEOLOGICALLY WITH
5:21
DEMOCRATS WOULD BE ONE THING.
5:22
BUT MICHAEL LUTTIG IS A
5:26
CONSERVATIVE'S CONSERVATIVE.
5:28
HE'S BEEN ON THE SHORT LIST
5:31
NOMINATIONS.
5:32
THIS IS A CONSERVATIVE.
5:33
ONE OF THE THINGS HE'S ARGUING
5:35
IS SCARY.
5:36
HERE'S POINT ONE.
5:36
THE CORNERSTONE OF THIS PLAN IS
5:40
TO HAVE -- WAS TO HAVE THE
5:41
SUPREME COURT EMBRACE THE
5:44
LITTLE-KNOWN INDEPENDENT STATE
5:45
LEGISLATURE DOCTRINE, WHICH IN
5:46
TURN WOULD PAVE THE WAY FOR
5:49
EXPLOITATION OF THE ELECTORAL
5:50
COLLEGE PROCESS AND ELECTORAL
5:51
COUNT ACT.
5:52
CAN YOU EXPLAIN WHAT THAT MEANS?
5:54
WHAT IS THE INDEPENDENT STATE
5:55
LEGISLATURE DOCTRINE AND HOW
5:57
MIGHT IT BE EXPLOITED?
5:59
>> BEFORE I GET TO THAT, LET ME
6:01
REITERATE WHAT YOU JUST SAID
6:03
ABOUT JUDGE LUTTIG.
6:04
HE IS A CONSERVATIVE'S
6:06
CONSERVATIVE.
6:07
HE SERVED AS A FEDERAL JUDGE ON
6:09
THE FOURTH CIRCUIT FOR 15 YEARS.
6:13
HE WAS SERIOUSLY CONSIDERED BY
6:16
GEORGE W. BUSH TO BE CHIEF
6:17
JUSTICE OF THE UNITED STATES,
6:18
AND IF NOT THAT, TO TAKE THE
6:20
SEAT THAT SAM ALITO TOOK.
6:23
SO HE IS AUTHENTICALLY A
6:26
CONSERVATIVE.
6:26
HE'S NOT A RADICAL.
6:28
HE'S NOT AN IDEOLOGUE, BUT HE'S
6:30
A PRINCIPLED CONSERVATIVE.
6:32
NOW, HE POINTS OUT IN HIS PIECE
6:34
THAT THERE IS THIS STRANGELY
6:39
NAMED INDEPENDENT STATE
6:40
LEGISLATURE DOCTRINE.
6:42
IT'S CLEVERLY NAMED BECAUSE IT
6:44
SOUNDS INNOCUOUS.
6:46
STATE LEGISLATURES ARE
6:48
INDEPENDENT.
6:48
BUT IT'S MADE UP.
6:49
THE DOCTRINE SUPPOSEDLY IS THAT
6:52
WHEN A STATE LEGISLATURE,
6:54
REGARDLESS OF THE STATE'S
6:57
CONSTITUTION, REGARDLESS OF
6:58
ANYTHING THAT THE STATE'S
6:59
HIGHEST COURT MIGHT SAY, WHEN
7:02
THE STATE LEGISLATURE HAS RULES
7:04
LAID DOWN, EVEN IF THE RULES
7:06
SAY, FOR EXAMPLE, WE WILL
7:07
DISREGARD THE POPULAR VOTE OR
7:09
WHOEVER WON IT, WE ARE SIMPLY
7:11
GOING TO COME IN AND NAME OUR
7:13
OWN SLATE, THAT THAT'S THE LAST
7:15
WORD.
7:16
IT REALLY WOULD GIVE THE STATE
7:18
LEGISLATURE OF EACH STATE THE
7:21
AUTHORITY BASICALLY TO ERASE
7:25
DEMOCRACY, WIPE OUT A REPUBLICAN
7:26
FORM OF GOVERNMENT AND DO ITS
7:28
WILL.
7:29
NOW, STATE LEGISLATURES ARE
7:31
DEFINED BY THE STATE
7:33
CONSTITUTION GOING ALL THE WAY
7:34
BACK TO THE BEGINNING OF THE
7:36
REPUBLIC, WHETHER YOU'RE AN
7:37
ORIGINALIST OR ANY OTHER KIND OF
7:41
IST.
7:42
YOU HAVE TO RECOGNIZE THAT THIS
7:44
DOCTRINE, SO-CALLED DOCTRINE IS
7:46
JUST MADE FROM WHOLE CLOTH.
7:48
BUT WITHOUT GETTING INTO THE
7:51
WEEDS, THE POINT IS THAT THIS
7:53
MADE-UP DOCTRINE, A BRAIN CHILD
7:55
OF JOHN EASTMAN, WHICH FINDS
7:59
SOME LANGUAGE IN A CONCURRING
8:03
OPINION BY THEN CHIEF JUSTICE
8:07
REHNQUIST IN BUSH VERSUS GORE
8:08
BUT IT WASN'T AN OPINION OF THE
8:10
COURT, THAT IS BEING BANDIED
8:14
ABOUT AS THE TECHNIQUE THAT THEY
8:16
HOPE TO USE IF THEY GET GORSUCH
8:19
AND KAVANAUGH AND ALITO AND
8:23
THOMAS ON BOARD THEY HOPE TO USE
8:27
TO TAKE THE NEXT ELECTION
8:28
REGARDLESS OF WHO WINS.
8:29
BUT THAT'S ONLY FOUR JUSTICES.
8:31
THEY NEED A FIFTH.
8:32
I DON'T THINK THEY'RE GOING TO
8:33
HAVE CHIEF JUSTICE ROBERTS IN
8:36
THAT CAMP TO STEAL THE ELECTION.
8:38
THEY'RE COUNTING ON AMY CONEY
8:41
BARRETT.
8:41
THERE'S NO PARTICULAR REASON TO
8:43
THINK THAT SHE'S UNPRINCIPLED
8:45
ENOUGH TO BUY THAT IDEA.
8:48
SO YOU MIGHT THINK SO WHY WORRY?
8:51
BUT, YOU KNOW, NONE OF US CAN
8:53
PREDICT FOR SURE WHAT AMY CONEY
8:55
BARRETT WILL DO AND THERE ARE
8:56
OTHER WAYS THEY COULD STEAL THE
8:58
ELECTION.
8:59
THERE ARE LOCAL OFFICIALS THAT
9:01
DON'T HAVE THE BACKBONE OF A GUY
9:05
LIKE RAFFENSPERGER.
9:13
THERE ARE ALL SORTS OF WAYS TO
9:13
STEAL AN ELECTION, MORE THAN YOU
9:15
MIGHT IMAGINE.
9:17
THERE IS A LAW GOING BACK TO
9:19
1887, THE ELECTORAL COUNT ACT,
9:20
THAT IS PROBABLY THE WORST
9:22
DRAFTED LAW I HAVE EVER READ.
9:24
IT'S GOT ONE AMBIGUITY AFTER
9:27
ANOTHER, ONE LOOPHOLE AFTER
9:28
ANOTHER, AND IT CAN BE USED IN
9:29
ALL KINDS OF WAYS.
9:31
THEY TRIED TO USE IT TO STRONG
9:33
ARM MIKE PENCE INTO EITHER
9:36
DECLARING TRUMP THE WINNER, EVEN
9:38
THOUGH HE WASN'T THE WINNER, OR
9:40
FAILING THAT, BASICALLY PUNTING
9:44
TO THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.
9:45
THERE'S A PROCEDURE BY WHICH
9:47
THAT CAN HAPPEN.
9:48
IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES,
9:49
EACH STATE HAS ONE VOTE.
9:53
AND 26 OF THE STATE DELEGATIONS
9:56
IN 2020 WERE CONTROLLED BY
9:57
REPUBLICANS.
10:01
NOW, DISSECTING ALL THAT
10:02
HAPPENED IN 2020 IS AN
10:04
INTERESTING EXERCISE.
10:05
WE'LL LEARN MORE ABOUT IT WHEN
10:06
THE JANUARY 6 COMMITTEE HOLDS
10:08
ITS PUBLIC HEARINGS.
10:10
BUT AS JUDGE LUTTIG POINTS OUT,
10:13
IT'S NOT WHAT HAPPENED IN 2020
10:14
THAT WE NEED TO WORRY ABOUT.
10:16
IT'S THE WAY 2020 WAS A DRY RUN,
10:20
A DRESS REHEARSAL FOR 2024.
10:23
AND THE REPUBLICANS ARE
10:25
METHODICALLY PUTTING IN PLACE A
10:28
SYSTEM FOR WINNING EVEN IF THEY
10:30
LOSE.
10:31
THAT'S REALLY SCARY, AND THERE
10:32
ARE THINGS THAT NEED TO BE DONE
10:34
TO REDUCE THE RISK.
10:37
WE NEED TO AMEND THE ELECTORAL
10:40
COUNT ACT TO GET RID OF SOME OF
10:41
THOSE AMBIGUITIES.
10:43
WE NEED TO SHOOT DOWN THAT CRAZY
10:47
SO-CALLED INDEPENDENT STATE
10:48
LEGISLATURE THEORY.
10:49
THERE ARE ALL SORTS OF THINGS WE
10:51
NEED TO DO.
10:51
BUT ALL OF US NEED TO GET BUSY
10:53
AND TAKE THE RISK SERIOUSLY, AS
10:56
HE PUT IT, BEING FORE

Jan. 6 panel requests interview with GOP lawmaker who it says gave Capitol tour on Jan. 5
Reps. Cheney and Thompson asked to meet with Rep. Loudermilk next week — just weeks ahead of public hearings scheduled to start on June 9

by Jacqueline Alemany
Washington Post
May 19, 2022 at 3:04 p.m. EDT

The House select committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol by a pro-Trump mob issued a request on Thursday for an interview with Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-Ga.), citing evidence the panel has obtained regarding a tour he led through parts of the Capitol complex the day before the attack.

In a letter to Loudermilk from the committee’s chairman, Rep. Bennie G. Thompson (D-Miss.) and the vice chair, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), the lawmakers write that the committee has obtained evidence that contradicts claims made by Republicans on the Committee on House Administration that “[t]here were no tours, no large groups, no one with MAGA hats on.”

Cheney and Thompson requested a meeting with Loudermilk next week — just weeks ahead of public hearings scheduled to start on June 9.

The latest request follows a slate of subpoenas issued to House GOP lawmakers who have declined to voluntarily comply with the committee’s inquiries. Loudermilk, who is a member of the Committee on House Administration, was one of the 147 Republicans who voted to overturn the election results and was in touch with White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows on Jan. 6, 2021, according to text messages obtained by CNN.

“It’s really bad up here on the hill. They have breached the Capitol,” the Georgia Republican wrote to Meadows during the attack.

Clarence Thomas' wife Ginni contacted Arizona lawmakers directly and tried to pressure them into overturning Biden's victory in 2020, damning new emails show
by Rob Crilly, Senior U.S. Political Reporter
DailyMail.com
PUBLISHED: 15:56 EDT, 20 May 2022 | UPDATED: 18:20 EDT, 20 May 2022

The wife of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas pressed Republicans in Arizona to overturn Joe Biden's 2020 election victory there, according to emails published on Friday.

Ginni Thomas repeated President Donald Trump's false claims that the election was marred by fraud.

'Please stand strong in the face of political and media pressure,' she wrote.

'Please reflect on the awesome authority granted to you by our constitution. And then please take action to ensure that a clean slate of electors is chosen for our state.'

The swing state of Arizona was central to Trump's claim that he was cheated of victory - and he was quick to come to Thomas' defense on Friday, calling her 'a great American patriot.'

Biden won the state by about 10,000 votes. The decision by Fox News to call the state for Biden infuriated Trump, and he has repeatedly disputed the outcome.

The messages reveal how Thomas was more deeply involved in the effort to reverse Joe Biden's 2020 win over President Donald Trump than previously known

Donald J. Trump
@realDonaldTrump
Great American Patriot, Ginni Thomas, the wonderful wife of Justice Clarence Thomas, is reported to have fought for Voter Integrity in the Great State of Arizona. Look at the findings of the Audit Report or the findings of the Attorney General of Arizona, which discuss the tremendous corruption & irregularities which took place in Arizona during the 2020 Presidential Election. Unfortunately, the Attorney General "talked," but seems to be doing nothing. Thank goodness for brave people like Ginni
May 20, 2022, 15:34


Trump praised her efforts in a post on Truth Social, calling Thomas a 'great American patriot'

Emails obtained by the Washington Post show Thomas, a conservative activist, messaged a pair of lawmakers on Nov. 9, 2020, urging legislators to intervene.

'Though she did not mention either candidate by name, the context was clear,' said the Post.

The messages reveal how Thomas was more deeply involved in the effort to reverse Biden's win than previously known.

Trump praised her actions.

'Great American patriot, Ginni Thomas, the wonderful wife of Justice Clarence Thomas, is reported to have fought for voter integrity in the great state of Arizona,' he posted on Truth Social.

'Look at the findings of the audit report or the findings of the attorney general of Arizona, which discuss the tremendous corruption & irregularities which took place in Arizona during the 2020 presidential election.'

They will reignite concerns about conflicts of interest, following earlier reports that she had texted Mark Meadows, Trump's White House chief of staff, in the days after the election urging him to do anything he could to keep Biden out of power.

Ethics groups said her stance meant that Justice Thomas should recuse himself from election-related cases.

He was the only Supreme Court judge in January to say that Trump should be allowed not to hand over documents to the House committee investigating the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. Those documents included text messages to Meadows.

The latest revelations show that Thomas wrote that Article II of the Constitution gives state lawmakers the power to choose Electoral College electors.

Image
Thomas sent messages to Arizona State Representative Shawnna Bolick (left), who deflected a request for a meeting, and Arizona House Speaker Rusty Bowers (right)

'This responsibility is yours and yours alone - it doesn't rest with any board of elections, secretary or state, governor, or even court,' she said.

And it certainly doesn't rest with the media

'That's why I am writing today to urge you to do your Constitutional duty.'

She goes on to request meetings with the two lawmakers 'so I can learn more about what you are doing to ensure our states vote is audited and our certification is clean.'

One of the lawmakers, Shawnna Bolick, deflected the request, saying instead: 'I hope you and Clarence are doing great!

Thomas reportedly replied: 'Fun that this came to you! Just part of our campaign to help states feel America's eyes!!!'

Thomas has insisted that she and her husband have kept their work separate, but her political activism has raised repeated questions.

A decade ago she and Steve Bannon — who went on to become Trump's chief strategist — were involved in Groundswell, a group formed to take on liberals and establishment Republicans.

Democrats have repeatedly slammed Thomas over his wife's activism.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi recent said: 'I don't think he ever should have been appointed,' before saying she believed Congress should look into a provision of the House-passed H.R. 1 that would create a code of ethics for Supreme Court justices.

'If your wife is an admitted and proud contributor to a coup of our country, maybe you should weigh that in your ethical standards,' Pelosi said.

Attorney John Eastman tries to hide 2 Trump handwritten insurrection notes from the J6 committee.
by Glenn Kirschner
May 22, 2022

Treasonous lawyer and architect of the insurrection John Eastman is attempting to hide from the House select committee investigating the Capitol attack two notes handwritten by Donald Trump that contain information Trump "thought might be useful for the anticipated litigation" regarding his efforts to overturn the election results, according to an article in Politico authored by Kyle Cheney.

Here is why Eastman's claim of executive privilege will fail and we will see the contest of those notes during the public hearings scheduled to begin on June 9.



so treasonous lawyer john eastman is
trying to hide from the j6 committee and
by extension from the american people
some really important evidence
involving donald trump's direct
involvement in the insurrection
spoiler alert
he won't get away with it
let's talk about that
because justice
matters
hey all glenn kirschner here
so an important little story snuck into
the news cycle in recent days without
much fanfare
but i want to spend a few minutes
talking about it today because
it has an unusual and potentially
impactful feature to it
it was reported by politico
and the reporter is kyle cheney who has
been doing a terrific job reporting on
all things insurrection
i will put a link to kyle's article in
the description of this video
here is the headline
eastman provides new details of trump's
direct role in legal effort to overturn
election
and the article begins
john eastman the architect of donald
trump's last ditch legal strategy to
overturn the 2020 election
revealed friday that he routinely
communicated with trump either directly
or
via six conduits
during the chaotic weeks that preceded
the january sixth attack on the capital
in a late night court filing urging a
federal judge to maintain the
confidentiality of his work for trump
eastman provided the clearest insight
yet into the blizzard of communications
between trump his top aides his campaign
lawyers and an army of outside attorneys
who were working to help reverse the
outcome in a handful of states won by
joe biden
the filing also describes the direct
role of trump himself
in developing strategy detailing two
handwritten notes from trump himself
about information that he thought might
be useful for the anticipated litigation
those notes are among the documents
eastman is seeking to shield via
attorney-client privilege
eastman is also urging the judge u.s
district court judge david carter of
california to shield dozens of contacts
with state legislators
some of whom he advised to appoint
slates of pro-trump electors
overriding the certified results of the
popular vote in their states
now friends
i have a few comments i want to make
about this story
first of all when john eastman said that
as he was trying to overturn the
election results he quote
routinely communicated with trump either
directly or
via six conduits
he used the word conduits but i think he
misspelled the word
conspirators
which
in context would make a lot more sense
that
as he was working to overturn the
election's results he routinely
communicated with trump either directly
or via six conspirators
and that seems to clear up that typo
second there is no such privilege as
attorney client and six conduit
privilege
third
judge david carter who's mentioned in
the article has already ruled in this
litigation that donald trump and john
eastman committed two federal felony
crimes
in their zeal
to corruptly overturn the election
results
therefore
the crime fraud exception
applies and it extinguishes
what might otherwise be
attorney client privileged information
but you know the unusual part of this
story friends is we've heard
maybe for the first time
that there is evidence
in trump's own handwriting two
handwritten note notes by trump that
eastman apparently has
that
you know in which trump sets out how to
go about overturning the election what
information might be helpful in the
litigation
yes so notes written by trump
i'm sure they
they may come complete with
sharpie drawings and misspellings and
improper capitalization
but these notes will probably be
important and i bet i bet
we will see them in the upcoming public
hearings
about the insurrection scheduled to kick
off on june 9th
because judge david carter will probably
continue
to rule that they do not enjoy
attorney-client privilege because you
know the attorney and the client were
working together
to overturn the results of a
presidential election they were working
together to you know bring an end to our
democracy and install donald trump
unconstitutionally for a second term as
a dictator
so the january 6 committee should get
those notes and we the people should see
those notes
during the course of the public hearings
scheduled to begin on june 9th
because
justice matters
friends as always please stay safe
please stay tuned and i look forward to
talking with you all again
tomorrow
