During the public January 6th hearings on June 16th, we learned that the man who spearheaded Trump's clumsy but incredibly dangerous attempt to overturn the 2020 election, John Eastman, knew full well what he was doing was illegal — but he went through with it anyway.
On top of that, we now know that he begged to be put on Trump's pardon list, "if that was still a thing." It was not, and now we need to send a clear message to the rest of the country that this kind of behavior will not ever be tolerated.
Tell Merrick Garland to indict John Eastman for trying to overturn the 2020 election!
It's hard to sum up just how damaging Eastman's campaign to steal the election was for this country — but January 6th committee witness Judge Michael Luttig summed it up nicely: "January 6 was a separate war unto itself, a war for America's democracy, a war irresponsibly instigated and prosecuted by the former president, his political party allies, and his supporters. Both wars are raging to this day."
If we are to preserve our democracy and win this war, then we must hold the perpetrators accountable — and nobody, save for Donald Trump, has dirtier hands than John Eastman.
Demand the Justice Department indict Trump's election steal lawyer John Eastman!
