Lawyer Down

If the news about who plotted the January 6th sedition was merely walking, in horse terms it has begun to trot. Yesterday, an Oath Keeper plead guilty to conspiracy and is ready to roll to assist in other prosecutions.

Anyway, John Eastman is now fully in the Select Committee’s crosshairs. You remember John, right? He was Trump’s counsel, and an author of one of possibly several roadmaps drafted that would enable Trump to retain the presidency. They want the rest of his emails, and might well get them-they are not subject to attorney client privilege anymore. To whet the appetite of the district court, the committee released an email Eastman sent to Pence’s lawyer, telling him to have his client violate The Electoral Count Act on the 6th, which in Eastman’s diseased head was unconstitutional.

The committee may be shooting for the moon here-if there’s a whiff of conspiracy, Donald Trump himself may be ensnared for that. He also may be liable for fraud in his effort to portray the election as rigged. I suppose we should not get too far ahead of ourselves here, because even if there is a criminal referral to the DOJ, any prosecution forthcoming from one would need to be airtight as fuck, which seems to be the standard for anything that Garland is working on, unless you’re the sort that believes he’s not working on anything hard, which I very much doubt. I’m no lawyer, but I do understand that there is some complexity to making sure a victory is attained, one that can’t be turned over on appeal.

I look forward to my metaphorical horse speeding up to a canter.

About The Head Seminarian

I went to war, I went to father, I came, I saw, and it is a mess. I wouldn't have it any other way. Shitty people amuse me, people who act like human volcanoes fascinate me like fine art. Life is beautiful, and it is under attack in a manner heretofore unseen in history. I might be writing a blog. Yes, that's all I am doing, now that I think about it. Even I forget sometimes, so we're cool.
