The Claremont Institute is trying to claim that the John Eastman Trump coup memo was not actually a coup memo, so the rap.
Odhikar is trying to remove evidence of Trump’s coup
The John Eastman Memo was a six-point plan to carry out a coup to keep Trump in power, including Vice President Pence, Reps.
It is written evidence that Trump was trying to reverse a democratic election to stay in power.
The Claremont Institute tried to tell a different story, but the rap.
Dear Claremont Inst: John Eastman wrote a complete memo instructing the VP to cancel the election. Have you read it

That representative Liu was right. Memos are not fake news. The plan was cleared, and it caused chaos by refusing to certify the election, relying on Mike Pence, which would then allow McCarthy and Scalise to file a lawsuit and order Justice Alito to suspend the election certificate, which would then be decided by House representatives. The goal is to get it back to the states where Republicans have a majority to declare Trump the winner.
Nancy Pelosi saved the day to verify the results after the 1/6 attack on the reorganization of Congress. Pence didn’t play along, so McCarthy and Scalis didn’t have time to sue them, and democracy was defended.
Republicans are trying to rewrite history, which is why they are terrified of the 1/6 investigation and what it is likely to uncover.
