Judge: Trump signed a court document knowingly containing false voting fraud statistics.

Carter, of California, said: According to Carter, Trump and his lawyers allege that Fulton County improperly counted more than 10,000 votes of dead, felony and unregistered voters in documents filed with the Georgia state court on Dec. They then moved the proceedings to federal court and discussed whether to use the same statistics for those papers. In a personal letter, Trump’s lawyer noted that the then-president refused to sign documents containing “specific numbers.” On December 31, Eastman emailed other Trump lawyers that the figures submitted to state courts were not accurate. “The president signed the acknowledgment, but [the state court filing] On December 1, he learned that some of the claims (and the evidence provided by the experts) were not correct,” Eastman wrote in an email to a colleague. “It would not be correct for him to sign a new verification with that knowledge (and integration by reference).” However, Trump and his attorney decided to file a federal complaint using the same number that Eastman admitted to be inaccurate. “President Trump signed the acknowledgment under the oath that the consolidated inaccuracies are ‘true and accurate’ or ‘true and accurate’ to the best of his knowledge and belief,” Carter’s nominee added. Bill Clinton. “According to the email, President Trump knew that certain numbers of voting scams were wrong, but those numbers continued to appear in both the courts and the public. The court finds that these emails are sufficiently related and promote a conspiracy to defraud the United States.” A Trump spokesperson and Eastman’s attorney did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Carter’s ruler was Jan. A screening committee with another piece of evidence supporting an investigation into Trump’s efforts to overthrow the 2020 election. Eastman’s email was part of the thousands of caches held by Chapman University, Eastman’s former employer. The selection committee subpoenaed Chapman to obtain the emails in January, and Eastman sued to block the disclosure of the emails. The judge’s recent decision could also provide a legal basis for an ongoing criminal investigation by the Justice Department and Fulton County prosecutors in Georgia into the efforts of Trump and his allies to overturn the election. It’s unclear whether the investigator already had the email in question, but if not, Carter’s recent ruling put some on public records, making it easier for others to access. Carter, who presided over Eastman’s case, became a key figure in helping the selection committee’s efforts. In the spring, he announced a ruling delivering thousands of pages of Eastman emails to Congress. His March 28 ruling, which said Trump and Eastman’s collusive felony obstruction was “probable,” became a regular feature of the selection committee’s public hearings. At the time, the committee decided not to require access to more Eastman’s messages, but more recently urged Carter to review an additional set that had not yet been released. Carter agreed that most of the emails requested by the screening committee were properly designated attorney-client privileges or attorney-at-law-product privileges. However, he said he was privileged but said the remaining 33 people, including four who would fall under “criminal fraud exceptions,” should be forwarded to the screening committee. Eastman was at the center of Trump’s efforts to pressure then Vice President Mike Pence to single-handedly prevent Congress from certifying Joe Biden’s election. He fought Pence’s lawyers even when violence swept the Capitol. Among the emails Carter released on Wednesday, he ruled that one of Trump’s lawyers had an exchange suggesting that a pending lawsuit be used to delay the electoral college count. “The mere fact that this case has not been adjudicated and is pending in the Supreme Court may be sufficient to delay consideration of Georgia,” one of Trump’s lawyers wrote in an email citing Carter. “These emails read in connection with other documents in this review make it clear that President Trump has brought certain actions through the courts to interfere with or delay congressional proceedings on January 6,” Carter said. did.
