The Likely Individuals Are…
Drum roll, please! Based on the information released about Trump’s latest indictment, the clues are being put together and they are pointing toward Rudy Giuliani, John Eastman, Sidney Powell, Jeffrey Clark, Kenneth Chesebro, and one more person who is yet to be uncovered.
If you don’t know these names, get to know them, they have been staples in Trump’s life for several years and for some, even before he decided to pursue the presidency. And just so we’re clear and y’all don’t come for our neck at The Blast, the co-conspirators are not named in the court docs but they are heavily described in the docs, and even better their specific actions done in public were described making it easy to figure out who is likely who.
First Up, Rudy Giuliani
In the indictment, this person is described as “an attorney who was willing to spread knowingly false claims and pursue strategies that the Defendant’s 2020 re-election campaign attorneys would not.”
It was widely known that the former Mayor of New York was pursuing unconventional routes to push the former president in the winning direction. In the indictment, it says that Trump and this co-conspirator called Speaker of the House Rusty Bowers to ask him to “use the legislature to circumvent the process” pertaining to those fake voters.
The co-conspirator was said to have made a comment about having “theories” but no actual “evidence”.
John Eastman’s Next
The indictment states this person as “an attorney who devised and attempted to implement a strategy to leverage the Vice President’s ceremonial role overseeing the certification proceeding to obstruct the certification of the presidential election,” according to ABC News.
The doc recalled a time when the person in question called the Chairwoman of the RNC to “ensure that the plan was in motion.” What plan? That is unclear. The alleged co-conspirator also told her that it was “important for the RNC to help the Defendant’s Campaign gather electors in targeted states.”
RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel admitted in her testimony that Trump called her. “He turned the call over to Mr. Eastman, who then proceeded to talk about the importance of helping the campaign gather these contingent electors in case any of the legal challenges that were ongoing changed the results of any states.”
Sidney Powell Is In The Fold
The attorney is the next likely person that the indictment is calling out. According to the January 6th committee’s report, Hope Hicks stated that Trump and Powel spoke on the phone. During the call, Trump allegedly “muted his speakerphone and laughed at Powell.”
Not only did the self-tanner loving former pres laugh, but he also allegedly commented “This does sound crazy, doesn’t it?” In addition to all this mess above, Powell has allegedly “embraced and publicly amplified Co-Conspirator 3’s disinformation,” according to the legal doc.
Jeffrey Clark Used The Justice Department
The indictment describes this co-conspirator as “a Justice Department official who worked on civil matters and who, with the Defendant, attempted to use the Justice Department to open sham election crime investigations and influence state legislatures with knowingly false claims of election fraud.”
They say the similarities line up to Clark who allegedly met with Trump in secret several times leading up to January 6. He is accused of trying to “coerce” the acting attorney general and acting deputy attorney general to sign a draft letter to Georgia and other states.
The letter was supposed to help identify concerns and impact election outcomes in multiple states. He was even in life to take over the Justice Department as acting attorney general.
Kenneth Chesebro And The Unkknown
The last two people are allegedly Chesebro an attorney who supposedly “assisted in devising and attempting to implement a plan to submit fraudulent slates of presidential electors to obstruct the certification proceeding.”
The indictment says on page 24 that “Co-Conspirator 5” wrote an email on Dec. 11, 2020, that claimed, “it could appear treasonous for the AZ electors to vote on Monday if there is no pending court proceeding.”
A New York Times article quotes him as saying the same thing. He was also accused of helping Trump’s efforts to get a recount in Wisconsin. It’s really not a good look.
As for the unknown, apparently, co-conspirator 6 is “a political consultant who helped implement a plan to submit fraudulent slates of presidential electors to obstruct the certification proceeding.”
Keep in mind none of these names have been confirmed just a crafty group of sleuths doing their thing!
