A damning new report reveals the conspiracy to overturn the 2020 election and install Donald Trump as a dictator goes beyond Trump, his inner circle, and some Republicans in Congress, but also involves nearly 300 Republican state legislators.
Trump’s plot to stay in power despite legitimately losing the 2020 Election included trying to reverse the results via the courts. After losing 60 times in court, Trump tried to force former Vice President Mike Pence to reject the electoral votes on January 6th. When that didn’t work, Trump incited his supporters to violently storm the Capitol. But the plot also involved state-level Republicans as well who plotted to send fake electors to vote for Trump even though President Joe Biden won their state.
Now we know that nearly 300 state GOP lawmakers were involved in Trump’s plot to overthrow democracy. It turns out that the Republican lawmakers participated in a briefing in which Trump participated along with Rudy Giuliani, John Eastman, and Peter Navarro, all of whom were apparently in on the fake elector scheme. A group known as “Got Freedom?” noted the event in a press release.
“Nearly 300 state lawmakers and others participated in the briefing, which also featured an address by President Trump,” the group said. “Also on the call were Rudy Giuliani; professor of law John Eastman; Peter Navarro, Assistant to the President for Trade and Manufacturing (appearing in his personal capacity), and John Lott, Senior Advisor, U.S. Department of Justice (also appearing in his personal capacity).”
Former GOP strategist Amanda Carpenter brought the release to everyone’s attention since it is likely connected to a text sent to former chief of staff Mark Meadows about Trump’s participation in a briefing with state GOP lawmakers about overturning the election.
That is, if this was in fact the call being discussed here. https://t.co/Z5NMy0RnXS

This is just another piece of damning evidence showing a wide Republican Party plot to subvert the Constitution and install a dictator in the White House. The Justice Department has dithered too long and it’s time for action. Every single Republican who participated in this plot should be charged with conspiracy and a bevy of other crimes related to the attempt to overthrow our democracy. Letting them get away with it will result in future attempts until they succeed. Republicans at every level of government need to face severe consequences. It’s the only way to save democracy.
