Investigators point out that the “alternative voter” conspiracy began well before December 14, 2020, a deadline for members of the Electoral College to gather across the country and officially sign certificates declaring the winners of the 2020 elections in their respective countries.
For weeks, Trump’s campaign was to get its constituents to join the seven battlefield states where Trump lost on December 14th.
Introducing Trump’s supportive electorate in a “duel” when Congress convened in a joint session on January 6, the idea was that then-Vice President Mike Penny would get involved and “resolve” the conflict between rival voters.
However, Pens did not have this power because the witnesses unpacked the committee at the last investigation hearing.
Members of Trump’s administration, including Trump himself, were aware, according to the committee, that Pens had no authority to settle any disputes on 6 January. All he could do under the constitution and the Election Count Act was open the slate and recite the record.
However, Pensa’s collaboration strengthened the two-tier election scheme developed by the president’s lawyers and advisers, such as Rudy Juliani, John Eastman, Sydney Powell, Jenna Elisa and others.
In particular, an e-mail dated 19 December 2020, revealed in a court dispute over the record between Eastman and the selected committee, showed that Eastman understood that Trump’s electoral bid had been decided, but he continued to push it anyway.
He described the alternative voter’s offer as “dead on arrival” if the state legislature did not support the plan, but that did not stop him from directing the strategy to the former president or others in the Trump circle.
After reviewing the documents in Eastman’s possession, U.S. District Judge David Carter described his findings:
Previous documents show that Dr. Eastman and President Trump’s plan to disrupt the Joint Session was fully developed and implemented as early as December 7, 2020.
On the day, Dr. Eastman forwarded a note explaining why January 6 was a “tight deadline” for Trump’s campaign, which was “critical to the outcome of the election,” Carter said. “One week later, on December 13, President Trump’s personal lawyer received a more detailed analysis of the significance of January 6, which was” the first time that members of President Trump’s team changed the legal interpretation of the voter census law on a daily basis … .
Forcing Pen to stop the census was “the ultimate goal of the team of lawyers,” Carter wrote in a June 7 verdict.

The text messages received by the committee from Mark Myudov, the former chief of staff of Trump, have also shown the depth and breadth of the scheme.
Rick Perry, a former secretary of the Tramp Department of Energy, sent a text message to Meadows on November 4, 2020, asking why states such as Georgia, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and “other R-controlled states” could not “simply send their constituents.” and then put it on SCOTUS.
Donald Trump, the son and adviser to the former president, recently sent a text message to Meadows with a similar message, urging the state assembly to send separate reports on 5 November.
Arizona Republican and chief ally of Trumpy, Andy Bigs, made similar proposals to the White House, noting in a November 6 text that Meadows would be “highly controversial” in directing the two-story electorate. Bigs asked Meadows if there was anyone on the White House team to research and lobby for the scheme.
“I like it,” Meadows wrote.
When Meadows was held in contempt of Congress for his refusal to cooperate fully with the investigation, his contempt report noted that Meadows had responded to a similar text asking about the campaign’s preparation for false voters. He admitted that the White House “already [had] team to it. “
The controversy and confusion surrounding Trump’s electorate was something that Eastman relied on to provide guidance to the 45th President and his commanders.
Trump’s lawyer, Cletta Mitchell, contacted Eastman two days after the end of the 2020 election, asking him to draft a note outlining the “constitutional role” of state legislators in the election of voters. Eastman wrote the note and shared it with other lawyers among the former president, including Elisha.
As campaign election fraud was wiped out in court and Tramp failed to obtain a legal basis to prove his conspiracy theories of widespread voter fraud, pressure on Penny increased, his lawyer Greg Jacob testified last week.
In a report created by The Washington Post published on Monday, e-mails reviewed by the newspaper and received by the committee suggest that Eastman Trump told advisers that uncertainties about the duel’s names would help convince Penza.
“The fact that we have several ranks of voters shows the uncertainty. That should be enough, “wrote Eastman.
As noted put out Eastman told Trump’s advisers that he thought the scheme would be more problematic in some states than in others.
When, on December 14, Trumpet’s false electorate met in the battlefield states, as in Georgia, it was shown in e-mails, with some instructing the Trumpet campaign not to talk to the media or reveal why they were there.
In other state buildings, the president’s two-story voters were more open. In Michigan, Trumpet’s false voters were expelled from the state house, a place where they were required by law to meet when the real voters submitted the lists. The guard rejected them and instead met at the Republican headquarters.
Before, during and after the December 14 deadline, Trump’s lawyers attended public hearings in which they questioned lies and conspiracy theories about widespread voter fraud in an attempt to involve state legislators.
More and more evidence is expected to be presented during Tuesday’s hearing.
The Ministry of Justice has already convened a special jury to check whether the Trump’s electoral lists have been illegal and what laws, if any, have been violated by members of the administration.
For the purposes of the grand jury, subpoenas have been issued seeking information about Julian, Ellis and Trump’s support lawyer, Kenet Chesebro of Wisconsin, who expressed his views on the benefits of the January chaos in an email to Eastman. 6.
Eastman said Chesebro said the prospects for an alternative election scheme were “not based on legal bases” but rather on an “assessment of the judges’ backbone” in the Supreme Court if they heard the challenge.
“I understand there is a hot fight,” Eastman wrote in Chesebro before arguing that Trump’s re-election campaign should be challenged in the Supreme Court. “For those who want to do their job, we should help them with a Wisconsin certificate petition to add to the mix.”
Chesebro told Eastman that he thought:the chances of acting by January 6 will be more favorable if judges start fearing that there will be “wild” chaos on January 6, unless they rule by then.
By the way, Chesebro used the word “wild” in the email just five days after Trump invited his supporters to gather in the Colombian area on January 6. He said it would be “wild”.
Rafensperger is expected to discuss his experience with Trump on January 2, 2021, when he was called by the 45th president and asked to “find” more than 11,000 votes so Trump could say he had won a state against his opponent.
“All I want to do is: I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have, ”said Trump.
He “won the state,” Trump added.
The Committee is expected to show that Meadows has been instrumental in getting Georgia’s election auditors involved in fraud, even by sending “Make America Great Again” hats to auditors.
Both Rafensperger and Stirling have testified in a large jury in Georgia, where prosecutors are investigating whether Trump has broken the law by putting pressure on government officials to overturn the results.
Sterling spoke loudly about the pressure he and others had experienced as a result of Trump’s constant unfounded allegations of fraud.
Sterling was blunt during the press conference.
It was “everything went too far”.
“Everything,” he said.
“Someone will be injured. Someone will be shot. Someone will be killed,” Sterling said.
On January 6, 2021, five people were killed in the U.S. Capitol.
An alternative election scheme was also implemented in Arizona, where Bowers told The Arizona Republic that Julian had called him after the results of the state election had been registered but had not yet been officially confirmed. Bouer said Julian told him there was a state law that gave the state legislature the right to vote.
It seemed unfamiliar to Bouers and, moreover, wrong.
It was “nothing more than assumptions,” he said.
“You’re asking me to break my oath and commit to do something I can’t do because I swear I won’t,” Bouer said, Juliani said. “I will abide by the constitution.”
There are also questions swirling around Virginia’s Ginny Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’ right-wing activist. E-mails discovered by Carter in Eastman’s struggle for privilege show that Ginny Thomas and Eastman have corresponded. Earlier, it was revealed that Ginny Thomas had sent an email to at least 29 Arizona lawmakers urging them to accept Trump’s electorate, even though Biden won the state’s referendum.
Thomas also sent Bowers an email urging him to choose a “clean constituency” and withstand “political and media pressure.”
She told the right-wing wing of The Daily Caller that she was looking forward to talking to the committee to clear up any “misconceptions.”
