The text messages sent to then Chief of Staff Mark Meadows by Fox News opinion hosts are revealing:

- The coverup continues. This time the insurrection coverup participant is John Eastman, the attorney who tried to aid Trump in stealing the 2020 election by offering the asinine legal theory that VP Mike Pence had the unilateral authority to prohibit certain slates of electoral votes from being counted.

Of course, as all attorneys know, attorney-client privilege does not cover all communications an attorney has. Further, the privilege belongs to the client, not to the attorney. It is not clear how Eastman continues to have a law license (or a job at Claremont Institute) given his extra-judicial, unethical conduct.
