By now, you’ve read about John Eastman’s secret memo outlining six points by which he believed the vice president could overturn the results of the 2020 election on January 6. I defer to legal scholars to explain the memo’s legal absurdities. I defer to political scientists to explain why the memo represents forces threatening our republic.
What I want to suggest is so plain I’m surprised that no one else has asked: isn’t this evidence of a conspiracy to commit a high crime?
News of Eastman’s memo put the debate over democracy reform into overdrive.
