Eastman provides new details of Trump's direct role in legal effort to overturn election

John Eastman, the attorney who architected 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 Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol.

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 the 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 hand-written notes from former President Trump 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 said he would also speak directly with Trump by phone throughout his legal challenges to the election.

Eastman described these contacts and records as part of an effort to prevent the Jan. 6 select committee from accessing 600 emails that describe his efforts to build Trump’s legal gambit to reverse the 2020 election outcome — and, when that failed, urge state legislatures to simply overturn the results themselves. He argues that the documents are protected by attorney-client and attorney work product privileges that Congress has no business probing, even as the panel investigates the circumstances that led a mob of Trump supporters to attack the Capitol.

Always take polls with a grain of salt

And never forget the "Barnette surge" that never really was

Looking at early results, I can make the following observation:

Many Repubs seem to be fucking nuts!

Media said Barnette was "surging"?

3rd place right now behind McCormick and Oz.
Keep pushing that horse race, media!

The ACA saved my life

Because of preexisting conditions, I couldn't get health insurance. I was working temp jobs that didn't offer insurance. The ACA came along, and helped cover my meds and several life-threatening occurrences.

Many thanks to all the Democrats who fought hard for this, and let's work together to make it even better!
