Capitol Riot Exploitation Committee Sees Breakthrough, Will Get Trove of Trump-Related Emails

Source: Newsweek

“The House select committee investigating the Capitol riot on January 6, 2021 is expected to receive some 10,000 pages of emails related to former President Donald Trump, marking a breakthrough in its investigation. Attorney and Trump ally John Eastman is getting ready to provide those records to the committee, his lawyers said in a court filing late Friday. Eastman previously tried to block the committee’s subpoena for January 6-related documents, citing attorney-client privilege. Eastman had claimed that privilege for 37,000 pages of emails that included details about his work with Trump after the 2020 election, according to Politico. … The records the committee was expected to receive included emails between Eastman and Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani in which they discussed a strategy recommending former Vice President Mike Pence reject electors from contested states on January 6.” (04/30/22)
