Judge Orders John Eastman To Turn Over Email Exchange With Ted Cruz Over January 6th Plot

John Eastman — who has been characterized as the ‘coup memo lawyer’ for his role in proposing methods for Donald Trump and his team to overturn the 2020 election — has been fighting to keep documents surrounding the attempted insurrection out of the hands of the January 6th Committee. He just lost in court, again.

Eastman has been trying to keep thousands of documents hidden from the January 6th Committee, claiming privilege. The Committee has objected to these claims, and asked a judge to make a determination.

Attorney Tristan Snell shared on social media Monday morning that a court order had been issued, demanding that Eastman turn over emails, specifically addressing emails exchanged with Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX).

Eastman is among those who have continued to resist cooperating with the January 6th Committee. In his case, he was previously order in March, as Yahoo reported at the time, to release the emails that the panel was requesting.

The January 6th Committee appears to be closing in on the alleged conspirators behind the efforts to subvert the election process and change the outcome in Trump’s favor. The panel is reportedly planning to begin public hearings in coming weeks, and they’re pressing for testimony from top officials like Mark Meadows, and interview people close to Trump, including his former advisor Stephen Miller. They’ve also managed to question Trump’s family members, including his daughter and son-in-law, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, and his son Donald Trump Jr.’s girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle.
