Apologists for Trump here and elsewhere have argued that Trump's legal arguments regarding supposed election fraud have merit. This is despite the fact that Trump's lawyers' election challenges have been rejected about 60 times in the courts.

If Trump's side was sincere in their claim that Trump really won the election, it's hard to explain why John Eastman would need to plead the Fifth repeatedly if he had a legitimate legal argument.

(Yahoo News)John Eastman, the conservative law professor who authored memos outlining how President Donald Trump could overturn the results of the 2020 election, invoked his Fifth Amendment rights 146 times when he was questioned by the Jan. 6 committee last month, a lawyer for the panel revealed late Monday.

The disclosure came in a court hearing before U.S. District Judge David Carter in Santa Ana, Calif., on Eastman’s lawsuit to block a subpoena from the committee directing Chapman University — where he previously worked as a professor — to turn over more than 19,000 emails relating to his work for Trump in the months following the Nov. 3, 2020, election.
