When our Stable Jenius was shaking down Georgeduh Governor Kemp to look for those 11K+ votes, it never made much sense; flipping the state would not have given him enough votes to win the Electoral College, but what it would have done was put the thing right in the lap of SCOTUS Justice Ginni, er, Clarence Thomas:
In an email from Chesebro to Eastman and several others sent on Dec. 31, 2020, Chesebro argued that Thomas would “end up being key” to asking the high court to overturn then-President-elect Joe Biden’s win in contested states, and that they should “frame things so that Thomas could be the one to issue some sort of stay or other circuit justice opinion saying Georgia is in legitimate doubt.”
“Realistically, our only chance to get a favorable judicial opinion by Jan. 6, which might hold up the Georgia count in Congress, is from Thomas — do you agree, Prof. Eastman?”
And now we understand why Team Coup went to Georgeduh. It was for Thomas. Thomas oversees emergency petitions from the circuit court that includes Georgia. Thomas is the Justice who supported Trump the most, and Ginni Thomas is a MAGA nut job who wanted the coup to keep Republicans in power.
Thomas, who did not respond to a request for comment, is the justice who oversees emergency petitions from the circuit court that includes Georgia. Eastman did not immediately respond to request for comment.
In an email sent hours later, Chesebro reiterated that he viewed “the best shot at holding up the count of a state in Congress” would be to get a case “pending before the Supreme Court by Jan. 5, ideally with something positive written by a judge or justice, hopefully Thomas.”
ka-BOOM. We now know why Eastman wanted these exchanges protected by privilege and why the judge ordered them released: that’s a conspiracy.
