When a person is falsely accused of a crime, they will likely be willing to provide evidence of anything that will prove their innocence. That’s why Donald Trump’s constant attempts to keep everything about himself hidden – tax returns, school transcripts, campaign communications, official phones calls with foreign governments – it’s clear that he has something to hide.
Judge David Carter wrote an 18-page opinion saying more emails from attorney John Eastman needed to be turned over to the Jan. 6 Committee. Those emails show that Trump knew that specific numbers of voter fraud were wrong but continued to tout them, in court and to the public.”

As criminal investigations into the coordination of an attempted coup plot have continued, emails between the twice-impeached ex-president who lost the popular vote twice and tried to overthrow the government to stay in power and his lawyer, John Eastman, came under scrutiny. Eastman and Trump have made multiple attempts to keep them from public view, claiming “executive privilege,.”
U.S. District Court Judge David Judge Carter ruled on Monday that four of those emails must be released to investigators as they are clearly evidence of an alleged crime, saying that “the court finds that these four documents are sufficiently related to and in furtherance of the obstruction crime.” In those emails, the judge’s ruling indicates, is evidence that Eastman told Trump repeatedly that some of the numbers the ex-president was using in his voter fraud claims, both by Trump in public and by his lawyers in court, were false. Trump, however, continued to push those numbers.
According to POLITICO:
‘U.S. District Court Judge David Carter wrote in an 18-page opinion that emails from attorney John Eastman, an architect of Trump’s last-ditch effort to subvert the 2020 election, needed to be turned over to the Jan. 6 select committee. Those emails, Carter wrote, “show that President Trump knew that the specific numbers of voter fraud were wrong but continued to tout those numbers, both in court and to the public.”’
