When even Rudy Giuliani thinks it’s a bad idea, you know your plan is ‘fuck you,’ according to ‘Late Night’ host Seth Meyers madness”.
In the third of six hearings, the House committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol last week painted a picture of how Donald Trump’s attorney John Eastman helped the then-president develop a plan , by using Vice President Mike Pence to overturn the 2020 election.
The committee played testimony from Trump’s lawyer and former senior adviser, Eric Hersman, who said he received a call on the morning of Jan. 6 from Giuliani, Trump’s then-personal attorney. Giuliani eventually conceded that Pence may not have the authority to do what Trump and Eastman suggested, Hersman said.
“It’s unbelievable to me that even Rudy knew it was a crazy bad idea,” Meyers said Monday. “Rudy. That’s how you know your plan is really fucking insane. This guy, in multiple investigations, thought it was a good idea to make a video with an Abraham-Lincoln filter. Same guy, see ‘I don’t know’ about John Eastman’s plan.”
After Pence refused to obey, a group of Trump supporters besieged the Capitol, some chanting to hang him. At one point, the mob crowd was within 40 feet of Pence inside the Capitol.
