You already know your plan is “really fucking loopy” when even Rudy Giuliani thinks it’s a nasty concept, in line with “Late Evening” host Seth Meyers.
In its third of six hearings, the Home committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021 U.S. Capitol assault painted an image final week of how John Eastman, a lawyer for Donald Trump, helped the then-president craft a plan to overturn the 2020 election through the use of Vice President Mike Pence.
The committee performed testimony from Eric Herschmann, a lawyer and former senior adviser to Trump, who stated he obtained a name on the morning of Jan. 6 from Giuliani, Trump’s private lawyer on the time. Herschmann stated Giuliani finally conceded that Pence in all probability didn’t have the authority to do what Trump and Eastman have been suggesting.
“It’s unbelievable to me that even Rudy knew it was a loopy and dangerous concept,” Meyers stated Monday. “Rudy. That’s how you understand your plan is really fucking insane. This can be a man who, whereas underneath a number of investigations, thought it was good concept to do a video utilizing an Abraham Lincoln filter. That very same man checked out John Eastman’s plan and stated, ‘I don’t know.’”
After Pence refused to conform, a mob of Trump’s supporters laid siege to the Capitol, with some chanting for him to be hung. At one level, the group of rioters have been inside 40 toes of Pence contained in the Capitol.
