Legal experts: John Eastman “literally confessed to the crime” in an interview with Fox News.

Former Trump legal adviser John Eastman, one of former President Donald Trump’s 18 co-defendants in the sprawling Fulton County RICO case, appeared to admit a significant portion of the allegations against him during an interview with Fox News, legal experts say. Fox host Laura Ingraham asked Eastman to clarify what exactly should happen on January 6th. “Several things,” Eastman replied. “Some people had been pushing for Vice President Pence to just have the power to refuse voters pending certification,” he said, before Ingraham chimed in, saying, “I don’t think so.” Eastman went on to claim he told Pence it would be “foolish to exercise such power” even if he had it. “What I’ve recommended,” the attorney added, “and I’ve said this repeatedly, is that he honor requests from more than 100 lawmakers in the swing states and give them a week to try to determine the implications of that.” to clarify what everyone is doing.” It was acknowledged that the conduct of the election was unlawful.

Legal experts said the statement fell short of the defense Eastman believed it was. “He literally just confessed to the crime,” tweeted National Security Attorney Bradley Moss. “The thing about the Eastman interview is that I suspect on national television he’s admitting to federal crimes because of his fixation with Georgia, which is why he should keep his mouth shut for his own benefit (or in the interests of transparency should continue). ),” agreed Georgia State Law Prof. Anthony Michael Kreis. “Pro-rights tip: if you’ve been charged with something, don’t talk about it on TV,” quipped attorney George Conway.
