Liz Cheney connects DOJ points on Trump’s role in fraudulent voter scheme

Donald Trump had a “direct and personal role” in trying to defraud the United States with a fake election scheme, the Republican envoy said. Liz Cheney said in her opening remarks.

Cheney said during a committee hearing on Tuesday (January 6th) that not only did Trump play a personal role in the fraudulent voter scheme, but former Trump lawyers Rudy Giuliani and John Eastman also played a direct role in the United States fraud scheme .

Liz Cheney: “Today we will begin to look at President Trump’s efforts to cancel the election by putting pressure on government officials and the legislature.

Donald Trump had a direct and personal role in this effort, as did Rudy Giuliani and John Eastman. In other words, the same people who tried to put pressure on Vice President Mike Pence to reject the election illegally also worked to reverse the 2020 election results at the state level. Each of these efforts to cancel the election is serious in its own right. Everyone deserves attention from both Congress and our Ministry of Justice.

Eastman’s involvement is described in detail in a coup note that contains a chronology of how Trump and Eastman plan to use the Census Act to steal the election. The note was written by Kenneth Chesebro and sent to Rudy Giuliani.

Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) quoted a federal district judge as saying that Trump and others may have violated many federal laws with their scheme: “According to Federal District Judge David Carter, President Trump and others may have violated many federal laws. by engaging in this United States fraud scheme. “

Schiff said that Trump’s pressure campaign included Trump’s pressure on individual state lawmakers, urging them to enter a session to declare him the winner or send two ballots to Congress so that Vice President Pence could choose the one. who declares Trump the winner. When that didn’t work, Trump’s coup camp came up with the idea of ​​sending fake voter lists and making fake certificates related to those fake voters.

Schiff quotes Judge Carter, who in a previous submission called the attempt to overthrow Trump and others “a coup in search of legal theory.” “The campaign to pressure President Trump to stop the election count did not end with Vice President Pence. It was targeted at every level by federal and state-elected officials. Persuading state legislatures to certify competing voters was essential to halt the census and ensure the re-election of President Trump.

The point here is to establish that Trump and others were directly involved in the pressure and interference in the peaceful transfer of power, interference in electoral duties, interference in the vote count and electoral fraud. If the commission proves they were directly involved (and there was already evidence of that by calling Trump to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Rafensperger, who witnessed today’s hearing), they could face serious charges, provided our democracy has done its job.

IN Brookings Institution concluded in an analysis from October 2021, based on the information available at the time, that “Trump’s behavior after the Georgian election leaves him at significant risk of possible state accusations based on multiple crimes. These charges potentially include: criminal incitement to electoral fraud; deliberate interference in the performance of electoral duties; conspiracy to commit election fraud; criminal imposition; and indicate the violations of RICO.

Here we are in the deep waters of crime, a criminal attack on our democracy, which has no priority on a scale. Watergate looks charming and cute in retrospect.

Donald Trump had a direct and personal role in a fraud scheme in the United States. If that’s not ideal for a man who condemns himself as America himself while constantly undermining and using the country for his own benefit, I don’t know what is.
