GOP lawmakers saw a PowerPoint about Trump’s coup before January 6

The January 6 committee is still gathering information on what led to the Capitol riots, and it’s still dealing with impatient Trump allies. like Mark Meadows. But now a damning piece of evidence has been made public: Based on Guardians, select GOP lawmakers were shown a 38-page PowerPoint detailing how they could overturn an election that Trump lost by more than seven million votes. And they looked at it not long before violent Trump supporters stormed the Capitol.

PowerPoint, a version that chief of staff Mark Meadows gave the committee, is called “Election Fraud, Foreign Interference & Options for January 6.” It provides several avenues for Trump and those close to topple their re-election defeat. One directed Trump to “declare a national emergency, declare all electronic voting invalid, and ask Congress to agree on a constitutionally acceptable remedy.”

It also contains multiple avenues for Trump’s number two:

PowerPoint also outlines three options for then-Vice President Mike Pence to abuse his largely ceremonial role at a joint session of Congress on January 6, when Biden is confirmed as president. and unilaterally bring Trump back to the White House.

Pence could pursue one of three options, PowerPoint said: assigning Trump electorate groups because of Democratic opposition in key states, rejecting Biden’s electorate groups, or delaying the certification to allow “checking” and counting only “legal paper ballots”.

The final pick for Pence is similar to one already taken by Trump’s lieutenant colonels – led by attorneys Rudy Giuliani and John Eastman, as well as Trump’s strategist Steve Bannon – from the Willard Hotel in Washington DC – released on January 4 and 5.

None of that happened, of course, and it could be thanks to everyone, who was once the notorious spoiler and slur. Dan Quayle.

The PowerPoint was presented January 4 to “several Republican senators and members of Congress,” although no names were specified. Trump’s lawyers, alas, were not invited to see it. The presentation was featured in more than 6,000 documents Meadows submitted to the committee, and it was billed as a “majorly controversial” plan to illegally give Trump four more years.

Although Meadows played ball with the committee, he only did so until. Last week, he tipped off and declined to formally testify, citing “executive privilege” — the same reasoning Trump and other allies have invoked, however erroneously, to get away with the matter. spill beans. The committee has vowed to find Meadows in contempt of Congress, which could lead to him becoming cellmates with another, foul-mouthed Trump associate: Steve Bannon.
