This decision today is the fault of...

all the people who stayed home or voted third party in 2016 because they didn't like Hillary for whatever stupid reason they could think of. Of course James Comey and the Russian collusion also played a huge role in in the illegitimate outcome of that election, but the purity tests were a big factor in creating our current mess. Don't forget that the losers of the popular vote and senators who represent a minority of the population are the ones who installed the right wing majority on this court. And if anybody thinks that they will stop with this horrendous decision they haven't been paying attention for the past fifty years. All the rights and freedoms that were fought for and earned since the '50s and '60s are now on the chopping block in the near future unless we expand the court and align it with the vast majority of Americans.

I'm so sick of those people who knew getting credit...

for speaking out now when they could have done it in real time. Especially pence who went along with it from the beginning and did nothing to push back against all the lies. He won't even testify to the committee which puts his cowardice on full display. The committee is doing a great job in exposing all the lies but the narrative being put forward that these people are some sort of heroes is beyond the pale. They knew the plan all along and did nothing to warn the public and let it play out knowing full what would happen. People were radicalized, joined domestic terrorist groups, planned assassinations and attempted to overthrow our elected government all while these enablers stayed silent.

This ruling puts trump at the center of the conspiracy to attempt a coup

There is plenty of evidence already public but this federal judge's decision makes it crystal clear who was running the show.

CBS News: Court orders conservative lawyer John Eastman to turn over 159 documents to Jan. 6 committee.


"Dr. Eastman's actions in these few weeks indicate that his and President Trump's pressure campaign to stop the electoral count did not end with Vice President Pence
it targeted every tier of federal and state elected officials," Carter said. "Convincing state legislatures to certify competing electors was essential to stop the count and ensure President Trump's reelection."

Carter also indicates in his order that Eastman's documents confirm the plan for Vice President Mike Pence to reject or delay the counting of state electoral votes during the Jan. 6 joint session of Congress was established "well before" lawmakers convened to reaffirm Mr. Biden's victory over Trump. Those proceedings were temporarily disrupted when the mob of Trump's supporters breached the U.S. Capitol to stymie the counting of state electoral votes.

In one email from Dec. 22, an attorney with Trump's legal team referenced the "January 6 strategy" as a plan known to eight others. Two days later, Eastman "explained that the worst case for the plan was receiving a court decision that constrained Vice President Pence's authority to reject electors," according to Carter's order.

"Dr. Eastman and President Trump's plan to stop the count was not only established by early December, it was the ultimate goal that the legal team was working to protect from that point forward," he wrote.

In examining the trove of documents contested by Eastman, Carter found one email, dated Dec. 22, may have been in furtherance of a crime. In that message, an attorney "goes beyond strategizing litigation outcomes" and considers whether to bring a case to shed light on the interpretation of the Electoral Count Act and the Jan. 6 proceedings of Congress.
