John Eastman was still pitching ideas for overturning the Georgia vote on Biden’s inauguration day.
Eastman suggested to Rudy Giuliani that they look for election fraud in the Georgia runoff polls.
In the same email, he asked Giuliani for advice on how to claim $270,000 in legal fees from Trump.

Former Trump lawyer John Eastman was still pitching ideas on how to overturn the election in Georgia on President Joe Biden’s inauguration day, The New York Times reported on Wednesday.

Eastman is known for having penned a detailed six-page memo suggesting how then-Vice President Mike Pence should move to overturn the vote in favor of former President Donald Trump.

The Times obtained an email dated January 20, 2021, that Eastman sent to Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s personal lawyer at the time. The email — which the outlet authenticated with individuals involved with the Trump campaign — was sent several hours after Biden was inaugurated.

According to The Times, Eastman pitched to Giuliani the idea that their team could uncover voter fraud in Georgia by attempting to scrutinize the results of the state’s runoff elections, in which Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock clinched two Senate seats.

“A lot of us have now staked our reputations on the claims of election fraud, and this would be a way to gather proof,” wrote Eastman in the email, per The Times.

“If we get proof of fraud on Jan. 5, it will likely also demonstrate the fraud on Nov. 3, thereby vindicating President Trump’s claims and serving as a strong bulwark against Senate impeachment trial,” Eastman continued, per the outlet.
