Kenneth Chesebro, a volunteer attorney for former President Donald Trump, allegedly spearheaded a master plan to overturn the 2020 election. According to memos released by the House Jan. 6 committee, the plan was to use alternate electors to shift the electoral vote count in Trump’s favor.

The New York Times obtained a copy of a previously unseen Dec. 6, 2020, memo written by Chesebro and sent to another lawyer.

In the memo, Chesebro admits the Supreme Court would “likely” rule against the plan, but says even if it were dismissed, it would still cast doubt on the election results and buy Trump more time.

The internal campaign memo is a crucial piece of evidence in the federal government’s indictment of Trump. The Times reported federal prosecutors are using the memo to link the Trump team’s efforts to “criminal conspiracy.”

Chesebro has not been charged in the Justice Departments’s Jan. 6 investigation, however, several media outlets are speculating that he is listed as an unidentified co-conspirator.

[L3: NYT: CHESEBRO KNEW PLAN WAS ‘LIKELY’ UNCONSTITUTIONAL]

NOW – THE NEW YORK TIMES HAS UNCOVERED ANOTHER MEMO OUTSIDE OF WHAT THE JANUARY SIXTH COMMITTEE PUBLICLY RELEASED.

WRITTEN BY CHESEBRO AND SENT TO ANOTHER TRUMP LAWYER – CHESEBRO ADMITS THE PLAN IS BOLD – AND IF IT WERE TO MAKE ITS WAY TO THE SUPREME COURT – THE JUSTICES WOULD LIKELY RULE AGAINST IT.

BUT – CHESEBRO SAYS EVEN IF IT WERE “LIKELY” DISMISSED –

IT WOULD STILL CAST ENOUGH DOUBT ON THE ELECTION RESULTS AND BUY THE PRESIDENT MORE TIME TO FIGURE OUT NEXT STEPS.
