On Wednesday, George Conway , a conservative attorney called information in “a smoking guns” and said that it was a new ruling which effectively proved former President Donald Trump guilty of perjury as well as other federal crimes.
U.S. District Judge David Carter issued the ruling Wednesday. It directed the release of emails between Trump’s attorney John Eastman and the House committee that is investigating the Jan. 6 attack at the U.S. Capitol.
Carter claims that Trump signed a legal form claiming that the information he gave in a lawsuit against the 2020 results in Georgia was true. However, the Eastman emails showed that he knew the numbers were incorrect.
Conway stated that the development would be a smoking shot for the Georgia state prosecutor. Trump is currently under criminal investigation in Georgia for election interference.
“This is a smoking gun” in Georgia. The judge described the emails as follows: “They file a lawsuit, which is a state court suit, [on] December 4, making various allegations regarding dead people voting, felons voting and unregistered voter voting,” Conway said to CNN’s Anderson Cooper. They realize that the allegations are false by December’s end. That’s the email the judge quotes.
Conway read aloud a portion of the email in which Eastman claimed that Trump was made aware of some of the inaccurate allegations. Trump’s lawyers asked him to “file a federal suit where Trump certifies, and under oath verifies under oath that these allegations are in fact, true,” Conway stated. Trump’s lawyers then asked him to “file a federal lawsuit where Trump certifies, under oath, that these allegations were in fact true,” Conway said.
He said, “The Georgia investigation has advanced to the point that this document is going to be an important exhibit in the charges I’m certain [the prosecutor] will bring.”
