In case you don’t make the connection, Eastman was the author of the Kamala Harris birther op-Ed some of you posted here
“ Eastman, who had taught at Chapman since 1999 and previously served as dean of the law school, drew national attention in August with an op-ed in Newsweek that falsely cast doubt on Vice President-elect Kamala D. Harris’s citizenship and eligibility for the White House. President Trump and his allies seized on the argument, which Newsweek later apologized for.
More recently, Eastman represented the president in a failed lawsuit requesting the Supreme Court to block four states from certifying Biden’s victory. A day before the Capitol riots, the New York Times reported, Eastman met with Trump and Vice President Pence in the Oval Office, where he argued Pence had the power to block Congress from certifying Biden’s victory.”
Point #2 (you don’t have to go very far) ties right into the Big Lie
“ When [Pence] gets to Arizona, he announces that he has multiple slates of electors, and so is going to defer decision on that until finishing the other States. This would be the first break with the procedure set out in the Act”
“ . One last piece. Assuming the Electoral Count Act process is followed and, upon getting the objections to the Arizona slates, the two houses break into their separate chambers, we should not allow the Electoral Count Act constraint on debate to control. That would mean that a prior legislature was determining the rules of the present one — a constitutional no-no (as Tribe has forcefully argued). So someone – Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, etc. – should demand normal rules (which includes the filibuster). That creates a stalemate that would give the state legislatures more time to weigh in”
WHICH IS WEIRD BECAUSE JBEAR IS NOT A TRUMPER, right?
And you cannot credibly whitewash your support by saying things like “I support the policies” because those policies are tied to this ONGOING soft coup. as one example, the GOP voting laws are changing the process so the state legislature can do what Pence refused to do himself. That effort is active and ongoing. Similarly there are Arizona, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin “audits” trying to overturn the votes.
Dan Quayle saving the country is the greatest irony.
Trump has taken to saying he merely wanted Pence to send the tabulations “back to the states” and not to overturn the election. Eastman suggestions explicitly call for Pence declaring Trump the winner. https://t.co/hDbUXOTnja
More fascism by memo, Mr. Cronkite? The thread title and content are examples #5,934 as to how full of excrement you are.
That Trump has to be worst, most ineffective fascist in the history of fascists. Couldn’t that fascist guy at least have mandated every citizen to, I don’t know, purchase a certain service or shoot something into your body? Those are good baby steps to fascism.
You TDS’ers are nothing if not worth a chuckle every now and again.
As of a few months ago (and still?), John Eastman, the author of the White House six-point plan for overturning the election, was chair of the Federalism & Separation of Powers Practice Group of @FedSoc. Any statement by them about one of their leading lights plotting usurpation?
