certainly shows they knew they were involved in illegal activities which is intent and a means to cover up their criminal activities.

'This was a coup!’: MAGA lawmakers asked for pardons, feared election plot was criminal


Quote:
Congress is seeking testimony regarding the Jan. 6 insurrection from three GOP members closely tied to former president Donald Trump: Congressman Ronny Jackson, Congressman Andy Biggs, and Congressman Mo Brooks. According to new evidence compiled by the Jan. 6 committee, some GOP lawmakers feared their own election plot was criminal and sought out presidential pardons to shield their activities. MSNBC’s Ari Melber is joined by NYU Law Professor Melissa Murray and former Georgia U.S. Attorney Michael J. Moore to discuss the developments in the probe.

'They knew': Republican lawmakers wanted pardons for criminal coup, per evidence


Quote:
New congressional evidence suggests several GOP members tied to former President Donald Trump were seeking pardons for their conduct relating to overturning the election. The evidence, cited in letters requesting testimony from Congressman Ronny Jackson, Congressman Andy Biggs, and Congressman Mo Brooks, suggests the members viewed their own election plot as potentially criminal. MSNBC’s Ari Melber reports on the developments and wider efforts by different Trump allies to overturn the results, including former White House aide Peter Navarro, whose admissions about overturning the election overlap with some of these apparent efforts by members of the House.

John Eastman, who advised Donald Trump on overturning the election, sought a pardon after the Capitol riot, the Jan. 6 panel said.

Quote:
Mr. Eastman emailed Rudy Giuliani to ask that he be “on the pardon list, if that is still in the works.” according to the House committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol.

Louis Gohmert may be the dumbest man in Congress—but he was at least smart enough to realize he needed a pardon.

Voter fraud was rampant!

That's why I'd like to invoke the fifth amendment and/or ask for a full pardon!

Rinse and repeat for so many!

Jan. 6 hearing: Trump told DOJ officials ‘just say it was corrupt, and leave the rest up to me’


Quote:
The House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot held its fifth hearing Thursday where top Department of Justice officials testified about how they pushed back on former President Donald Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election.

Trump planned to install a new acting attorney general, Jeffrey Clark, to help spread his false claim that President Joe Biden’s electoral victory was rigged through widespread fraud, the committee said.

Three ex-DOJ officials — former acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen, former acting Deputy Attorney General Richard Donoghue and former assistant Attorney General for the Office of Legal Counsel Steven Engel — said they threatened to resign over the scheme and said hundreds of others would do the same.

The event marks the committee’s fifth presentation of evidence from its nearly yearlong investigation of Jan. 6, 2021, when a violent pro-Trump mob stormed the U.S. Capitol. The panel notes that its investigation is ongoing.

Multiple Republican members of the House of Representatives sought preemptive pardons from Trump on the heels of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, among them Reps. Matt Gaetz, Mo Brooks and Marjorie Taylor Greene, witnesses testified.

Alabama Rep. Brooks sent the White House an email on Jan. 11, 2021, seeking pardons for himself, Gaetz, and “every Congressman and Senator who voted to reject the electoral college submission of Arizona and Pennsylvania” five days earlier, according to excerpts of the message displayed during the hearing.


Florida Rep. Gaetz had pushed to receive a pardon beginning in December 2020, according to videotaped testimony from Cassidy Hutchinson, a former aide to Trump White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows.

“The pardon he was requesting was as broad as you could describe, from the beginning of time, up until today, for any and all things” former White House lawyer Eric Herschmann said in his own videotaped testimony about Gaetz.

Others who sought pardons were Trump allies such as Reps. Louie Gohmert of Texas and Andy Biggs of Arizona as well as Greene, the controversial Georgia congresswoman, according to testimony.

All of them had promoted and supported Trump’s false claims of having lost the 2020 presidential election only as a result of widespread ballot fraud.

After testimony about the pardons was heard, committee member Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., said, “The only reason I know to ask for a pardon is because you think you’ve committed a crime.

I didn't realize what I was doing was criminal and could be viewed as an act of treason and an insurrection.

For that reason I'd like a pardon and/or to just plead the 5th!

Your loyal supporter!

Some GOP members of Congress could face 15 years in jail — and disqualification from office: legal expert


Quote:
Bombshell revelations about Republican members of Congress seeking presidential pardons for their roles in Donald Trump's attempted coup could disqualify them from office, according to a top legal scholar.

"Multiple Republican members of Congress asked White House officials whether Trump would preemptively pardon them for their activities in the lead-up to Jan. 6 before he left office, testimony provided by former White House aides to the committee shows," The Washington Post reported Thursday.

Reps. Andy Biggs (R-AZ), Mo Brooks (R-AL), Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), and Scott Perry (R-PA) were all implicated.


Ambassador Norm Eisen, who served as co-counsel for the House Judiciary Committee during Trump's first impeachment, shared his thoughts on Twitter following the hearing.


"Congressmen helping Trump on & before 1/6 & then demanding pardons. Makes me think of 18 USC 201: A public official who corruptly seeks anything of value in return for an official act or colluding in fraud shall be imprisoned for up to 15 years & disqualified from office," Eisen wrote.

And they may not be the only people with legal liability under the statue.

Law Prof. Jennifer Taub, author of the book Big Dirty Money: Making White Collar Criminals Pay, wrote that it may also apply to Jeffrey Clark.

"I just heard what sounds like bribery of a public official under 18 USC 201 -- when Jeff Clark allegedly said he would not take Rosen's job as Acting AG if Rosen and the Acting DAG would sign the lie-filled letter to be sent to Georgia," she wrote.

boy did she tell the truth...

Mark Meadows and Rudy Giuliani sought pardons from Donald Trump after the violence of Jan. 6, an aide to Mr. Meadows testified.

Quote:
Cassidy Hutchinson, a former aide to Mr. Meadows, made a series of revelations in dramatic blow-by-blow testimony based on episodes she witnessed in the White House.
