During Thursday’s third public listening to of the House committee investigating the January 6 revolt on the Capitol, Trump White House lawyer Eric Herschmann described in recorded testimony his name with John Eastman, the lawyer advising former President Trump on the plan to overturn the 2020 election. The name came about on January 7, someday after the lethal revolt. “He started to ask me about something dealing with Georgia and preserving something potentially for appeal. And I said to him, ‘Are you out of your F—ing mind?’ Right? I said, ‘I only want to hear two words coming out of your mouth from now on: orderly transition. … I don’t want to hear any other F—ing words coming out of your mouth no matter what, other than orderly transition. Repeat those words to me,’” said Herschmann. Eastman later emailed Rudy Giuliani and requested that he be included on a list of potential recipients of a presidential pardon. Eastman’s email stated, “I’ve decided that I should be on the pardon list if that is still in the works.” #democracynow
