John Eastman, who concocted the 1887 Electoral Count Act gambit, sought a pardon in the days after last year’s attack on the Capitol, the House Jan. 6 committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, riot revealed on Thursday.

“I’ve decided I should be on the pardon list, if that is still in the works,” Eastman said in an email to Rudy Giuliani that was quoted during the select committee’s third public hearing on Thursday.

So far Donald Trump has been utilizing the George Costanza defense. Despite all the evidence proving the legitimacy of Joe Biden's election win Donald Trump has been acting as if he thinks he really won and there was a constitutional way for him to remain in office. In other words as Jerry Seinfeld was told by his bald pal, "it's not a lie if you believe it."

However there's good reason to think that Trump doesn't believe his own lies. That he did not grant John Eastman a pardon indicates this. Eastman ask for a pardon for the only reason that anybody would ask for a pardon. That is they don't want to go to jail or otherwise pay a penalty for their crimes. Eastman and Trump worked hand in glove trying to overthrow the presidential election. If Trump were to pardon his partner in crime he would have to acknowledge that a crime was committed and that he took part in it.

    What's interesting, Curt, is that Eastman claimed the Fifth like he did not to protect himself from the committee. It has no power to indict anyone. He was already thinking ahead to the actual criminal trials he is sure to face that will be coming out of all this.

    He knew he had committed crimes and he wanted to be pardoned for them by the person he committed them for. No one asks for forgiveness for crimes they never committed.

    I seriously think that he will get the longest prison sentence of anyone found guilty in the eventual criminal trials.

    At one point in yesterday's testimony Mike Pence's legal counsel, Greg Jacobs, said that John Eastman had asked Pence to commit only a "small violation" of the law.

    HA! Right? "But Your Honor...! I only raped her a little bit..."

    I can't be sure what is going to end up happening to Trump, but that asshole is going to be taking a loooooooooong trip up the river.

    But he won't be alone. A lot of Trump's other lawyers will probably be accompanying him.
