[WATCH] TrumpWorld Continues to Scapegoat Mike Pence Over January 6th Insurrection

“Hang Mike Pence! Hang Mike Pence!”

The crowd marauding the halls of Congress on January 6th came prepared to hunt down the Vice President of the United States because he had refused to overturn the results of the 2020 Presidential election. His plan to vote to certify Joe Biden as the rightfully elected 46th President was only temporarily thwarted by the insurrection at the hands of Trump supporters, who had erected gallows on the Capitol lawn should they succeed in their attempt to capture Pence.

Instead, as Pence and his Secret Service detail hid in the bowels of the Capitol out of fear for his life, Donald Trump’s lawyer, John Eastman, berated Pence for not helping the administration illegitimately stay in power. Eastman’s logic was straightforward: If Pence had helped Trump pull off his coup, the angry mob assembled by the president would not have turned to violence.

According to a new report in The Washington Post, Eastman sent an email to Pence’s aide, Greg Jacobs, blaming them for not stopping the Electoral College process. “The ‘siege’ is because YOU and your boss did not do what was necessary to allow this to be aired in a public way so that the American people can see for themselves what happened,” Eastman wrote.

As Trump continues his attempts to block the January 6th Select Committee from seeing documents and records from his administration, the email from Eastman indicates there was possible coordination and planning from within the White House to prevent the election from being certified.

MSNBC covered the latest revelations from the Eastman story. Watch the report, below.
