Former Trump legal adviser John Eastman was caught on camera telling an undercover progressive activist that he stood by his blueprint on how Mike Pence could have subverted the 2020 election to give Donald Trump the win. The activist is Lauren Windsor, and she has been on a tear lately catching pro-Trump figures saying nefarious things with her undercover techniques. In this instance, Windsor peppered Eastman with compliments and then asked him: “why do you think Mike Pence didn’t do it?” (meaning steal the election for Trump). Eastman followed up, “well because Mike Pence is an establishment guy at the end of the day. And all of the establishment Republicans in DC bought into this very myopic view that Trump is destroying the Republican Party.” Another activist pressed Eastman as to why Trump didn’t join his supporters at the Capitol that day. Eastman claimed that Trump was planning on coming down to the Capitol but was deterred by the break-ins that already begun before his speech concluded. Eastman went on to make claims like an “Antifa guy got paid 60,000 bucks by CNN to break in” and that the Oath Keepers and Proud Boys in attendance were “FBI plants.” With people like John Eastman advising Trump over how to respond to his 2020 election defeat, it’s no wonder why the presidential transition and the events of January 6th got as tumultuous as they did.
